Layers of Paint

Last Year I was presented a fantastic material.

It was a piece of a wall, to be precise a fragment of the paint which covered the wall for the last decade or more. This massive layer of paint contains a sector of hundrends of graffiti paintings. Like sediments full of history and stories…

Although making jewellery was the aim of the workshop, I took a different path. For me, naturally, I had to pay homage to the origin. Therefore I carved out a graffiti style, highlighting the source material, making a graffiti out of graffiti paint(ed) graffities.

This can be seen as an excursion in an experimental phase. I’d like returning to this possibility eventually.

Shout out to Opty for the inspiration!

The Wasp

Every summer the swarm intelligence of wasps appears…

A quick hall of fame action using the previous painting as a backdrop, applying additional square patterns with stencils.

Hudson RXS [evolving space]

Some time ago I made a spaceship for a blind-pass-along-game. That was a great opportunity to dwell into the depths of deep space reconnaissance.

That was the first version. Later I made another version, featuring a different colour scheme alongside some minor tweaks.

In addition I gave this version a sticker job with various decals.

 

Due to the increasing popularity I made another version with a custom paint job, meaning that I painted several elements.

Claas Xerion

Following my soft spot for cutting edge farming machines in terms of design and functions I made an adaption of the Claas Xerion. This one was built in addition to the John Deere Forwarder I presented previously.

The challenge was to make it minifig-suitable, that means quite small. In addition I wanted to incorporate the rotating cabin.

In addition here are the break down shots if you would like to build your own version or just see how the construction looks like.

Cole [lightning]

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!

 

Hello, my name is…[Jungle Boogie edit/ A’maze’ing flipside]

Colours in the Streets again

This summer seems to be more dedicated to the liquid plastic rather than the bricks.

Here a commissioned work on a transformer in Muelheim a.d.Ruhr. The Art Museum asked for adaption(s) of original art work from their collection reinterpreted with the spraycan. At the location I had a chat with the owner of the shop in the background asking for his preference since he has to see it every day.

The motives are adaptions of

  • ‘Orangene Kuh’ by Franz Marc
  • ‘Der Schwimmer’ by Verso
  • ‘Coke’ by Ha Schult

 

 

John Deere Forwarder 1910 G (re-design)

A redesign of a creation from 2010.

Now with more accuracy, details and functions:

  • dual wheel suspension
  • rotating and leveling cabin
  • retractable front blade/stabilizer
  • balljoint axle connection between the engine and the trailer
  • boom arm
  • replaceable boom heads, this version features a timber milling machine
  • versatile load space

Urban Sculptures Exhibition [photo update]

I was invited to be part of the group exhibition ‘URBAN SCULPTURES‘ @ Pretty Portal – Urban Art Gallery over the last weeks.

Some fresh stuff from me, which is heavy on the Graffiti|StreetArt|BrickArt side, was and is currently still on display.
