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.

Gore Lordz 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!

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.

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…

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