Gore Lord Pt. 4

Part four of our collaboration series

When we arrived at the Aeromigos Jam we expected a huge collabo wall with many artists. So it was with the little difference that my mate Niklas and me hat a 7meter high wall and mostly just a ladder and just a day time. Therefore we used the night and painted until dawn and short after continued.

The spirit of the Jam was great, positive vibrations with many other great artists. Much respect to the Aeromigos boys for organizing and inviting us!

Selfness

Experimenting with mosaics.

Not long ago I was in contact with Arthur Gugick (Flickr account), who I admire for his pioneer work in seeking different methods of creating mosaics with the bricks. He was a very friendly and helpful guy and I wished our conversation would have continued. Now I know what happened as recently I heard that he had passed away.

That made me very sad. Another mastermind with the bricks like the great nnenn gone far too early.

Rest in piece and my condolences for his beloved ones.His artwork will live on! This mosaic is dedicated to him as I had him and his studies in mind while creating it.

 

Usually I don’t manage to document any progress of my stuff, but with the new work space improving I managed to grab a few rough progress steps.

My intention was to create a mosaic which is more than just a mere conversion of a prior photo edited digitally with some kind of mosaic program. Although that tool was initially involved I tried to part the part midway and try to give it a more individual touch – with the risk of failing. The coloration happened later and was done manually without any digital pre-editing.

Painted electric boxes

Some fresh paintings I’ve done recently.

The beach seat was a commission, while the other two were part of a larger project. The project ‘Unter Strom – Hans-Böckler-Platz meets Street Art’ was a admission free workshop whereas the participants painted 13 of those boxes. The leading topic was to depict characteristics of any kind of the City Mülheim/Ruhr.

The abstract thing started with the ground plan of the site where the ensemble of painted boxes are located.

The eyes with the cat toilet alongside the quote are a reference to a well-known comedian coming from that city.
