An open call for worldwide artist participation. A platform to showcase the works of the best urban artists currently existing.
Going with the idea of Random von Nothaus of Buff Monster that themed shows are starting to feel played out, we only named it "Metal Pig". The rest was up to the artists to interpret. There was purposely no guideline or recommended medium. This created some interesting diversity.
The show went on during the South by Southwest Festival
