    For the second chapter ‘Day and Night’ (May 2016) the invited artists were Klub 7, from Berlin whose background was originally in making posters. The scale of their art projects subsequently grew to building size, or entire room interventions, works that can be read from long distances and street perspectives. They are prolific artists who enjoy travelling throughout the world bringing passion and enthusiasm through their art. Their work is defined by shape, colour and movement and could be described as graphic, abstract, young and figurative. To create a day and night effect, in Metric Market painted murals with a specific paint colors he reacted as RGB, ie depending on changes of light.
