MAZE FESTIVAL is an international Streetwear showcase part of the Torino Fashion Week line-up, running in 2018 its second edition. It's a first-of-its-kind concept of event, both Tradeshow and Festival, and present itself as a dynamic meeting for both the operator and the public, encompassing Arts, Clothing, Fashion Shows, Live Music, Action Sports, Dance and Culture.
SYNTH CAFÈ was one of the partners of the event, the biggest online community (over 25K members) of electronic musicians in Italy, a marketplace of the best professional equipments of the field, and a music channel too. Initially, I came in contact with the MAZE for this reason, providing some graphics and visuals for SC. The video over here was one of the first drafts of their brand material I created for the event, along with many others, some were used, some not.
Besides the SYNTH CAFÈ commission, I also partecipated in a call for artists to do a live painting at the festival, and passed the selection. Then I prepared two of my PATTERNS ALMOST A DAY to be put on walls. Due to some complications I had less time than expected, and I made it with less grid modules that how it was supposed to be, but it turned out good anyway.
