Tollwood-Collab

2018-01-13T20:34:44+00:00

During the Winter Tollwood Festival 2017 in Munich I had the great pleasure to paint alongside Patrick Hartl and Matthias Mross. Sometime during planning and painting our separate walls we decided that we should combine forces and create a unique collaboration piece, painted live at the festival. Patrick is a Calligraffiti artist from Munich [...]

Liberté

2017-12-13T11:14:35+00:00

The motive was painted for the Label Valette Festival at the grounds of an old Chateau. After being abandoned by its owner it belonged to the Spanish State and was even used during the Spanish Civil War. First, by the Republicans who used the castle to welcome Spanish political emigrants and later, by the [...]

A full wall of 'Google Heads', six in total. The heads are identical, the only thing changing is the colour of their backgrounds (blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red - which is the sequence of colours in the Google logo). This emphasizes the creation of distinct filter bubbles depending on your preferences when looking [...]

Sea and Horizon

2017-09-27T17:13:38+00:00

The motto “Sea and Horizon” of the Desenlata festival (for which this work has been made) reminded me of an optimistic/sexy slogan of a real estate company wanting to attract new residents and businesses to a once desolated or run-down area. The festival takes place in a neighbourhood of Porto where the can-factories used [...]
