Designs created with leading masking tape brand FrogTape have been used to make the artwork for Zurich Open Air Festival.
The organisers of the event, which welcomes over 170,000 people over three days, saw the vibrant geometric designs of Brighton-based Art + Believe and commissioned them to provide the artwork for this year’s festival. The main stage of the Zurich Open Air Festival was surrounded with Art + Believe’s art recreated digitally, as was the giant ‘Z’ that welcomed visitors to the event. The art will be used for three years.
Dan and Charlotte of Art + Believe always use FrogTape in their work: they are world-famous for their colourful geometric designs which have been used on building exteriors, palace floors, city architecture and even beer bottles. Their work relies on straight lines so Shurtape, owner of FrogTape has sponsored the duo for a number of years, as the unique Paintblock Technology in the masking tape means it provides the neatest straight lines possible, with no paint bleed.
This is not the first time FrogTape has supported Art + Believe for an outdoor event, the artists also created the artwork for the BBC stage at the Big Feastival in the Cotswolds.
Says Dan: “We love to create artwork that is bold, fresh and exciting, and we are very grateful to Shurtape for the support over the years. We love to use FrogTape with our painted designs as we need clean, sharp lines in our work.”
Jason Burns, MD at Shurtape says: “We’ve recently seen their artwork in a school, at Brighton Pavilion and at Alexandra Palace, each time using FrogTape. But this must be their largest installation yet. Huge congratulations to Art + Believe.”
