2 times Poland // 2nd part Kraków

Came back from the opening of my solo exhibition "Creatures From The 23rd Dimension" at BARAKA in Krakow. The 5 days in the city were incredible! The cityself itself looks like a movie background because it looks so unbelievable great. I arrived on tuesday after 4 hours delay and started to prepare the installation for the exhibition. After working on wednesday 14 hours and thursday 6 hours the show/installation was ready... the opening was a blast with around 400 people coming by. After too much wodka i needed a day off and painted with NAWER on saturday. Big dschinkuje to Maciek (and his wife for the super saturday evening dinner) and NAWER for the great time in Krakow! Hello and see you to Bartek, Magda and all the people i met!


BARAKA ... if you are in Krakow check it out! a super cool place for a coffee and maybe some wodka ;)



Tuesday: Starting the installation



Wednesday: 14 hours of building and painting








Thursday: Final touch ups and OPENING!



Painting at FABRYKA on saturday

Exhibition at YARD5/Berlin

Just finished the exhibition at YARD5 store in Berlin before going to Krakow for my solo exhibition at BARAKA.



2 times Poland // 1st part Białystok

First i was invited doing a workshop for artschool students and graff writers in Bialystok alongside RSN-ODIN (Bialystok), AZO (Kiev) and SUNT (Gdansk). I stayed some days and really enjoyed the city while painting three small collaboration pieces in the free time. THANKS Tomasz and his lovely wife, "the teachers", the people from the workshop, the guys from the short movie festival and crazy Peter for the good time!


I don`t really believe in any kind of religion but the churches were just awesome!




One of the oldest stores in town and the logotype is a burner!


Some weird "german bars" in the city centre


Beware of the dog!


The Crew! Represent!

On my stop over in Warszawa

In the meantime...

... i painted this one in Berlin with WESR from Lima/Peru.

Next Level: Lisboa

After the "hard working" summer i spent a week in Lisboa/Portugal to relax. The city is just awesome and definetly worth a visit or two,three,... I will put in some more flicks of the city and the awesome OSGEMEOS exhibition. Thanks to CREYZ and Ivan from DedicatedStore for the cool time and beers and Malte for the tips and tricks :)

He is no good to me dead!


Just a small appetizer by JUST from the piece with KACAO77 for the book "GRAFF WARS" published by Kontur Forlag. Available now in a galaxy not so far away...

Now you know what i did last summer...

Finally i managed to sort out some flicks from this summer. I don`t know where to start exactly... anyway here we go... (click on the images to enlarge)


This is part of a production with BOAone and LEIKA done in Berlin...check the new issue of STYLEFILE :)


This one is with M2theA my "crew member" from Denmark


Detail of the piece i did with MEKone at Roskilde festival. Once again a nice trip where i met lots of cool people! Yo Bone, Enuff, Fred, Nose, Stereo, Kers, Chucky,... Thanks and skål to TIWS!


MEKI x BASE23


After Roskilde festival there was for sure time for another "small" piece :) This one goes out to the copenhagen connection BONE and TIWS!

After Roskilde festival i was heading to Hamburg where my brothers already started to paint the "Hotel Commodore" right across the FC St.Pauli Stadium entrance. Another 3 days of mayhem with Mister Förtress at his lovely "Hotel Vomit".
Painted with MURFY, SAID, DESK7 and FLYING FORTRESS.

Recent Exhibitions

Here are some photos of my latest installations for the "Concrete Playground" and "PST!..." exhibitions. In the future i would like to build more 3D stuff like a "Geisterbahn" (ghost train). Thanks to Disturbanity, Marius and Zonenkinder for inviting me to these great exhibitions plus JensBesser and Twik for the photos in Hamburg and Essen. Special thanks to HorstOne for helping me in Hamburg! Check here for more photos of "Concrete Playground" and "PST!..."


Installation at the "PST!..." exhibition | Gängeviertel Hamburg
You have to walk on the tongue (it`s hard to see it on the photo but the red carpet got the shape of a snake tongue) through the mouth to see the artworks in the back.


Detail at the "PST!..." exhibition


Installation at the "Concrete Playground" exhibition | Zollverein Essen
The main idea was to have an impression of a flat wall when you look from a distance...


... and when you take some steps to the side you will see some parts are "3D"!

Will I Go To Hell For This

Just two and a half weeks in may are gone, 3 exhibitions and painting like hell i got some free time to read the new purchased book "Will I Go To Hell For This" from Copenhagen. A great book in my opinion after flipping through; well designed with hardcover and printed in 5 colors (extra silver) and tons of never before seen flicks from the Copenhagen subway! This is definetly a must have for your bookshelf and for a graff book junkie collector like me :)! Check here, here and become a fan here and make sure to buy a copy!

NIKE ID Campaign

Nike ID asked me to use one of my paintings in Berlin for their latest campaign. You can find 40! posters in Berlin. Thanks to DeModern agency for their effort to get in contact with me and ask for a permission! It`s not very common these days and a lot other corporations really fucked it up in the past. I really like it and the size is even bigger than the original painting :)
