Vision Art Festival, Crans-Montana Ski Resort, Switzerland 2017

The Vision Art Festival has been back for its third edition in the beautiful setting of the Valais Alps. With its spectacular circular view, coiled up on a mountainous plateau overlooking the Rhone valley and the Valais Alps, the renowned Swiss resort of Crans-Montana once again took urban art to a whole new level, from 21st-26th August.

Vision Art Festival is a non profit association and the only Urban art festival high up in the mountains – between 1500 and 3000m above sea level set up in Crans-Montana, the famous swiss resort, which hosts FIS World Cup as well as the renowned Omega European Masters of golf.

Artists invited to new heights this year were: Astro, Louis Masai, Leon Keer, Maja Hürst, Koz Dos, Quitessenz, Rylsee, Lora Zombie, Brokovich, JASM1, Original and David de la Mano.

Astro mural takes us into his graff vortex! This incredible play on the eye is called “Ice Mountain Perspective” and the icy blue mural can be found at 2600m!

Louis Masai paints endangered animals that are specific to the region, a minx and a dormouse. His ethos being, if we don’t act now to stop animal extinction then all we will have left is toys. 

3D Anamorphic king, Leon Keer paints a “Mountain Laundrette” at La Toula taking him to dizzy new heights of 2500m!

Maja Hürst paints a black panther with green piercing eyes at Sans titre on the Hotel Le Green, the hotel enjoys a location in the heart of Crans Montana, 200 yards from the cable car and the lifts.

Koz Dos also paints on the side of the Hotel Hotel Le Green Crans, with his mural “The dawn of an absurd return”.

Quitessenz plays with colour in the tunnel des Verdets, Arnouvaz 1700m.

Rylsee paints his funniest mural to date ” Greetings From Nowhere”. The theme is about imaginary summer holidays and all that comes with it. This is also where Rylsee learnt to ski as a kid!

Lora Zombie paints in her magically imaginative style. Her mural is called “Clarity” and reflects the feeling of being free at Bellalui 2600m above sea level!

Broko Vich left his crazy masks all over in town The masks were made from found pieces of wood and waste of the sawmills of Crans.

JASM1 painted 2300m above sea level an oriental inspired mural in gold and black.

Artist Original takes over with his fun mural entitled “The Water Paradise”.

David de la Mano paints in his signature style, his mural entitled “Skyline Mountain”…

Another creative jam packed edition of Vision, changing the landscape of Crans and taking art to dizzy new heights.
