To live your life
Transforming from/to Graffiti, Urban Art and Brick Art
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:
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
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.

…out in the streets again!
Over the last few weeks I was working on an installation as part of the 40° Urban Art Festival 2016 in Duesseldorf. As working outside was dependent on the weather the whole progress was stretched over a few sessions.
I was prepared for a very short life time of the installation, but the actual half life was faster than expected. Like one day after doing one part of the door, already most of it was damaged or even stolen. It would have been nice to at least complete the installation before decomposition takes place. Therefore I had to post process the photos taken and merge them into one picture in order to show at least how it would have looked like.
Nevertheless it was fun and a great experience. People passing by were throughout positive and curious.

Adding a blaq’d take on the global project Dispatchwork originated by Jan Vormann. This project is authentic Street Art IMO compared to most so called Art in the Street Art and the Brick Art worlds. The open character adds to the greatness of this project as the people are equally ‘street’ as the concrete space.
If you feel compelled trying your hands on this I’d strongly encourage you. Make sure to submit your take to the project site.
