Metelkova Mesto is a haven for artists. "In the context of Slovenian culture graffiti have quite an interesting history. Already from the beginning they were illegal....The stronger the message, the more they were considered a criminal act and consequently bound to be persecuted in the minds of the citizen. In Ljubljana, graffiti increased in number in the eighties - in the years of rock and punk and also of the fight for civil society and the rights of the marginalized groups and individuals....The essence of graffiti more or less remains connected to the social context and cultural margin that is also reflected in the project of Painting Metelkova."
