Levitation (Source bounce edit)

Presenting my latest street art project, a massive graffiti mural.

I was urging to paint the wall/bridge for some time. It’s close to where I live and located at a highly frequented main road. Last year I managed to get the permission to paint the wall. Furthermore the cultural department of our city financially supported this project for which I am very thankful.

The process from idea to execution took some time. Living almost next door was definitely an advantage here for regularily having a cup of tea. I was lucky, the weather supported me as it was much warmer than usually for this time of year. The bypassers were highly attracted and most were happy to get a new painting/picture in their hood, which is a rare thing in our barrio.

The picture itself is an adaption of a previously built brick art sculpture from 2014 and contains elements of style writing, graffiti, space and collision. It could be described as interlocking graffiti brick art tech space.

The meta behind this project is that the sculpture, which is inspired by graffiti and contains style writing is being transformed back into the source graffiti, completing the cycle of adaption and inspiration. Also the bricks echo the structure of the canvas, the brick built wall, therefore refer to the deeper structural connection.

A great article published in print newspaper highlighted the work. Thanks to Rheinische Post for showing a serious interest in this project.

Here’s the full process from a desolated wall to the mural.

Special thanks to Ace Radeski for making some great moody photos!

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.

Metatrain

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.

Turbo Urban Exhibition 2019

Last month I had the opportunity to show some of my street art related stuff at the fantastic Turbo Urban exhibition.

Here are a few impressions.

Transformacan

Transforming from/to Graffiti, Urban Art and Brick Art

Stand-alone transformation!

The spray can, the icon of the Graffiti and Street Art movement being rebuilt with plastic bricks. In a second step making some decent photos of the built spray can, serving as a blueprint for spray painting the motive on the wall, completing the cycle. Painted at the Meeting Of Styles 2017 in Wiesbaden.

And the stencil version:

Hafen Soundz

This weekend delta.triangle and I had a collaborative display at the Floating Bricks Convention in Hamburg.

Fun fact that the show was in the St. Pauli Barrio inside of the infamous Millerntorstadium.

It was a literal blast, starting with a small collaboration, extending to a layout full of sound, engineering and street art/graffiti and rounding things up with an all-nighter in diverse clubs…

My mate delta.t built a soundsystem tower based upon Killasan‘s wall of speakerboxes. Jamaican originated soundsystem culture at it’s finest!

As a small surprise he also brought a tropical DJ booth along with a DJ and a selector.

My counterpart was a spraycan which got ‘blasted’ by the music. The spraycan being a tower of varying colour sounds echoing the acoustical sounds. The whole shape is deformed in a mix between an astral body and a bullit-like bending caused by the metal ball which is an integral part of a spraycan.

Unfortunately the shots of the collabo are semi, as lighting and stuff had to be improvised.

String Theory

Yay, I’m back with some plastic graffiti fresh from the lab!

It started as a blueprint for using technic connectors as elements for creating letters, then I got carried away…

Another brickd’n’painted style.

This is a stand alone piece which allows flexibility in the arrangement.

Shown at the recent Urban Sculptures Exhibition @ Pretty Portal.

Enjoy!
