Since its founding in 2009 Stroke Art Fair has established itself as an international institution for urban contemporary art. Alternating between Berlin and Munich, it showcases a growing number of galleries and artists from the fields of illustration, design, street art, and everything in between. Traditionally, galleries have formed the focal point of action, yet this year they also provided spaces for individual artists to present and sell their work independently. Packed into two small rooms, 36 artists got to showcase their artworks and interact with visitors. Among them was a small (but very diverse) squad of three representing the streets of athens: Ino, Dimitris Ntokos, and WD. Here’s what they were up to during the four days of the event.
Graffiti pioneer Ino represented his work with a series of four black and white graffiti canvases. He also produced a huge mural for the chill out lounge next door.
Dimitris Ntokos—whose work was prominently featured in the stroke flyer—displayed some of his signature scarab paintings framed in vintage golden frames and also did some live painting.
WD, who usually goes big in the streets, showed a series of small and playful canvases and frames on the inside and some of his versatility and skill while live painting on the outside.
