O1NE is a club by Sky Management which will open this December near Biel. The facade of 2500 sq.m is being transformed to one of the largest privately owned grafitti murals in the world if not THE largest. Graffiti as an art is now one of the most loved arts in the Middle East, probably because it reprsents freedom of expression and thought, something we have been yearning for. 16 international artists are currently working on the project.
