From the 26th to 28th of April 2019 an explosion of graffiti art and street art went down in the Philippines. The 2019 Meeting of Styles in Manila took place and was organised by Carrot Bombing which keeps on hosting the MOS. Once more artists from all over Asia and half of the world came together to bring more colours into this world. Better chilla with the killa in Manila!
Manila, the capital and second largest city of the Philippines, is located on the eastern shore of Manila Bay. It is the second most populous city in the Philippines, behind Quezon City and and has a total population of 1.6 mill in 2010 census. It is also one of the sixteen cities which, along with the municipality of Pateros, make up Metro Manila, the National Capital Region, whose overall population is around 12 million.
26-28 APRIL 2019, MANILA (PHILIPPINES)
As one can see, the spot had a lot of wallspace with big and nice walls. This year the event was held at the official sponsor ‘Task Us’ parking grounds on Aurora BLVD in Quezon City, which is a metropolis that makes up part of Metro Manila. The line up included artists from all over Asia, Europe and the US. Creativity exploded in those two days and below you can see some highlights from the event as it unfolded.
The location is a busy area with traffic moving snail paced, as expected most days in Manila where it is not uncommon for a 2-hour journey to travel just a few km. With commuters squashed inside kitsch decorated Jeepneys (the most popular means of transport in the Philippines) which have now become a ubiquitous symbol of Filipino culture.
MOS remains the biggest international annual graffiti jam that has set foot in the Philippines. The line-up was huge and many local artists from around the Philippines used this opportuniy to show their art skills. Check out the following images of works…
