The Vision Art Festival has been back for its fourth 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 17 to 26th August 2018.
Vision Art Festival, the only urban art festival in altitude and real open-air museum, attracts
artists from around the world to participate in this crazy week of creation in the mythical Crans Montana resort during the last week of August.
The artists are painting between 1500 and 3000m altitude, in a extraordinary breathtaking panorama and it all began with Gregory Pages fantastic idea of turning the grey concrete buildings into something worth seeing!
This year’s main theme was “water”, with most works related to “water” and how vital it is for all of us.
Artists invited to new heights this year were Jasm One, Serval, Ygrek, Tones One, Tom Bob, Mantra, Sylvie Fleury , Julien Nonnon and Obed Osorio.
JASM ONE painted an amazing portrait on the hotel Le Green! entitled “Shaken, Not Stirred” and is a tribute to prominent resident of Crans Montana, 007 Roger Moore, where he lived his 30 last years.
