Deeply invested in modern and contemporary art, the Widewalls magazine aims at providing a unique experience for its readers in the form of in-depth and quality journalism.

The artist collective Tape That was founded in 2011 and since then has grown into one of the most influential tape art groups. Their creative roots can be found in contemporary urban art, graffiti and design. Inspired by the idea of creating something artistic out of an everyday object, their common media of choice are adhesive materials, mainly tapes and foils.

Tape That has worked in more than 38 countries. In 2019 their so far biggest solo exhibition was realized in Taipei, Taiwan and featured globally in mainstream media. Besides their work for numerous brands and clients, Tape That are mainly busy organizing exhibitions and workshops around the world to spread tape art and establish it as an own art form.

In 2015 they have founded the Tape Art Convention – an exhibition and platform to create a global tape art community. Besides they have initiated Tape Art Around The World – a series that aims to teach and showcase tape art to new audiences and use it as a medium for cultural exchange.
