Old Village Gets New Look With Lang/Baumann Geometric Street Painting (PHOTOS)

One will mostly find street art in an up-and-coming urban settings, often surrounded by cool young folk, warehouses and exclusive events held by cool young people in said warehouses. That is why this gigantic piece of street art by Lang/Bauman is so jarring. The electric geometric pattern pops out against the old-town village of Vercorin, Switzerland.

Every year the town challenges artists to create artworks which involve the entire city. The project was organized by a small association called R&art, founded by residents of the village. The sprawling shapes look digital in comparison to the old wooden facades of the buildings. As if we needed another reason to want to visit Switzerland!
