Change of Colours
With the largest graffito in Switzerland, Basel isnow one attraction richer. And Bell has played a notinsignificant role in this. The wall design underthe motto «Change of Colours» is on the façade ofthe Frigo cold warehouse.
Between August 20 and 30, 2020, a grey concrete wall of around 1800 m2 at Bellʼs headquarter sin Basel was transformed into a colourful work of art. The main attraction of the largest wall design in Switzerland is a large, three-part mural on the façade of the Frigo cold store on Neudorfstrasse, created by the internationally renowned street art artists Cenz, Bustart, Chromeo and Bane.
On the left side, local hero Bustart created a colourful picture in his typical mixture of pop art and cartoon elements. The centre picture by the English artist Mr. Cenz shows an expressive portrait of a woman with flowing, cosmic-looking forms. On the rightside, the Swiss street art artists Chromeo and Bane have created a photorealistic, colourful3-D picture showing a spray can surrounded by flowers. In addition to the large mural, the walls on the corner of Neudorfstrasse/Schlachthofstrasse were redesigned by over 20 national and international graffiti artists.
The wall design took place under the motto «Change of Colours». The colourful works of art are a symbol of the departure following what has been a difficult time for everyone, in which social and cultural life has temporarily come to an almost complete standstill. The wall design was organised and carried out by the «Verein Urbane Kunst Basel». Bell provided the necessary walls and actively supported the artists in ther ealisation.
