The following works are presented on the art fair:
STROKE was founded in Munich in 2009 by Marco and Raiko Schwalbe to present their vision of art, design and urban lifestyle of the 21th century to the broad public.
It was their intention to question and ban the outdated conception of so-called high culture and pop culture.
STROKE recognizes overlay, influencing and mixture of different creative expressions such as contemporary art, design, music and fashion as one of the most significant cultural changes of the 21st century, thus being the essence of the event.
Within just seven years more than 150,000 people have visited the STROKE and thus established the event amongst the top-five of Germany’s art fairs. During the last decade there wasn’t any other art event in Germany exhibiting a comparable growth and media interest.
STROKE works as an experience-oriented event for cultural progress and renewal. Curiosity and interest thereby replace the fear of the unknown. No matter if you got an art historical training, serious collector’s intention or the passion for shape and color – at this place art is fun at any age! The STROKE art fair presents young, vibrant and the most important: affordable art. Beside the known contemporary aspects, the concept set a focus on digital art, design and various other forms of urban lifestyle.
