HUGO BOSS, in association with legendary graffiti artist Blek Le Rat, have launched a stencil art completion at hugocreate.com, an online arts platform. Blek Le Rat has been described as "an artist who did what Banksy did, 20 years before Banksy did it.”
They are asking for people to create a work of art inspired by the city of Berlin, and the spirit of HUGO. Blek Le Rat will help in choosing the 5 winners, who will be flown to Berlin for a live art session with the artist himself. Blek will also paint his own specially commissioned stencil at the event, and the winners will join him in painting their pieces of art.
