Despite the pandemic issues, there are a some workshops ahead, including online seminars. The list has been updated and also the design of the overview has been revised and made more visually appealing.
A few months ago, Elspeth from New Elementary asked me to play around with a few new Lego Sets from the dots series, namely the bracelets.
There are a bunch of results, which will be showcased time by time where this post will be constantly updated.
For starters there are the interwoving bracelets which give a nice irregular and organic base.
Some applications of this technique – the viruses are here!
Here are three connected bracelets forming an endless stream. This never went beyond WIP.
Three colourful fellas from the sea.
And finally some sketches inspired by and with the (mostly printed) tiles from those sets.
New times offer new paths. This one leading to developing educational content online. Actually I am concentrating on a specific technique of making pictures with bricks.
There has been a cooperation with the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, showing how to easily make abstract art with simple plates.
Right now there is another tutorial online. This one was developed in cooperation with the Clemens Sels Museum Neuss in Neuss. It’s a two-part tutorial and further explains and demonstrates an approach to pictoral expressions with an extended palette of elements, exemplified by adapting a painting of the German painter Heinrich Hoerle. Hoerle is influenced by Expressionism and Constructivism.
And here’s the built picture of Heinrich Hoerle’s ‘Rheinische Landschaft’ from 1932. The original painting is part of the collection of the Clemens Sels Museum Neuss, all image rights of that picture belong to them.
There is also a radio article at News 89.4 covering the project.
Presenting a small series of spray can characters I built over the last few months.
They’re all in midi scale compared to the 1:1 Inside the Spraycan series. Further down you can find the single interpretations.
To celebrate the series and to share my art work as a hard copy I have released an edition of 20 of the Ethereal Being. Each piece comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity. One piece will be available for 100€. Your support will help me and my family in this uncertain lockdown situation. All planned creative workshops have been cancelled.
If you are interested shoot me a mail.
There is also a chance to get a piece for free, check my instagram account for details.
Meta is one of the rare Street Artists in my city who’s work is absolutely original. He inittiated a spontaneous project, after finding a book with pictures of trains in a pile of rubbish on the streets. He forwarded all of the countless fantastic images of real and model trains to many of his Graffiti and Street Art colleagues. I was lucky to be able to pick a train from the book and the SNCF Jouef BB 26000 locomotive immediately caught my attention with the vision of a brick-ified version. The project sat on my desk for about two years before recently I managed to make my version.
I concentrated on the basic shape, the color scheme and some distinct details. As just copying something in existence does not attract me, I decided to implement two twists. First of all I wanted to break the train while keeping the shape. Secondary I included my alias into the sides of the trains, referring to Graffiti and the expression bombing a train.
