chrome series

In Uncategorized on 15. December 2010 at 12:50

this series is inspired by rene margrittes work. you may know the painting “ceci n`est pas une pipe”. i tried to transfer it into my language of paintings. what`s left is the background colour and the attempt to work with words. it`s not that visible on the fotos but the motives consist of three colours. chrome, black and white.

5. masking tape

In essentials on 10. November 2010 at 07:52

okay so using the right tape is a science depending on your surface and the kind of colours you are working with. i want to share some experiences with you. of course every adhesive tape even cheap ones work. but if you need a good masking tape then i recommend the yellow one. all the “tape”- companies offer these FINELINE-tapes now. they may be a little more expensive, it`s about 5 euros. but once you`ve tried this one you don`t want to use any other, especially when you spraypaint on wood.

the big advantage of this kind of tape is:

– no colour creeps under the tape!

– you can even mask thin lines with this tape.

– easy to handle and rip off.

– it`s not ripping off your sprayed colour.

Künstler zeigen Künstler

In exhibitions on 23. September 2010 at 08:05

i am having my studio in the centre of culture in my hometown. we are a total of about 25 artists with various skills and styles. we are setting up public events regularly. after a year of brainstorming and planning we introduced a new concept to the audience. the idea was to use the aigles as a gallery…so everyone of us invited another artist, and we primed and prepared the walls for them. i was lucky to have SWET from denmark as my “guestartist”. i took the chance to show some works from A1one and some other collaborations with Marc Wöhr and Frerk too. the idea worked, and the show was well accepted by the audience.

Here are some shots of the event…
