Graffiti turned upside down: Versus breaks one of the most important rules in graffiti, not to paint over images of other writers. This rule is deliberately turned upside down in an artistic dialogue. In Versus, art is not understood as the work of an individual, art can only be created together in collaboration. Not the individual idea is at stake, but the unique creative process through collaboration of several artists.
"Painting at a distance" during the pandemic: the artists work together, but separately. Each works for himself and yet they create something together at a distance. The artists paint "at a distance" and have thus developed a form of creation that fits into the current time.
