For the Dulwich Street Art Festival – Baroque the Streets – several artists were invited to paint murals that are based on a painting from the Dulwich Picture Gallery. In addition to those murals we also painted a house in Lordship Lane outside and inside. The wall I painted is situated in Belair Park, right next to West Dulwich station. Therefore I decided to use one of Jan van Huysum’s flower paintings as a base. For the room inside the house, I decided to use the whole space, rather than just painting the walls. Here’s a film on my short trip as well as a bunch of photos. The last shot was taken by Alex Ellison - thanks!
„This December, a true workshop highlight is waiting for all art interested people
in South Africa. The re-known street artist MadC and the pioneer in spray can-airbrush
mixing technique Lars Laurus Oschatz are coming all the way from Germany
to South Africa. From December 14th to December 15th 2013 they will give a 2 days workshop in Midrand near Johannesburg. Participants will learn the professional
and creative handling of the spray can in combination with the airbrush system and acrylic markers. This technique can be applied to both – large and small surfaces, no matter if it is a mural, a bonnet or a canvas – immediately and with little effort you will reach a lasting and sophisticated result.“ To sign up contact Laurus here.
I painted a bunch of new canvases and pieces on paper. Some of them are on display in Dulwich for the Dulwich Street Art Festival and some are available at Pure Evil Gallery in London. The piece below is called “1301″ and was painted with watercolours and ink. This one is sold, but you can contact Pure Evil Gallery for other works here.
I’ll be participating in this year’s Dulwich Street Art Festival – Baroque The Streets. Other participants are Conor Harrington, ROA, Nunca, Shok-1, Remi Rough and more. We’ll be painting murals based on paintings from the Dulwich Picture Gallery. So I’m sure it will be an interesting event not to miss. To find out more, check the Street Art London website here.
Here is another and last bus I painted together with TES for Asker Farvehandel. This one had a Harry Potter / Slytherin concept. So it shows the 3 main Slytherin characters Voldemort, Snape and Malfoy as well as the Snake Nagini. The bus has one special feature – the logo and Voldemort’s face glow in the dark thanks to 30 cans of phosphore paint.
As already announced, here is another russebuss I painted in Norway together with TES. This once’ concept is a “Stabburet” – a traditional small Norwegian house made of dark wood. I painted a moose on the back of the bus and also made a spray-paint version of the famous painting “Brudeferd i Hardanger” by Adolph Tidemand & Hans Fredrik Gude. It took me about an hour to paint it and it is used to decorate the ceiling inside the bus. I didn’t get a photo with the painting in it’s golden frame, though. I will try to add this later.
Just like last year, I spent a while in Norway to paint some partybusses, well known in Norway as russebuss. Most of them I painted together with TES for Asker Farvehandel and one of them I painted with Sofles. Here are some impressions from Norway as well as some pictures of the buses. I’ll post another two the next days.
There’s been a lack of updates simply because I am painting every day and night and have no time for the www. Here’s a little sneak. In May, lots of new stuff to come…
You can now purchse original art by MadC on graffitiprints.com. There will be a limited print coming in about 3 months as well. You’ll read about it here of course. So everyone in the UK and abroad interested in getting an original or print from me or one of the other great artists, check it out here: graffitiprints.com
Today is the third year without Dare. In his last years, Sigi mainly worked on canvas rather than on walls, so I thought it was time to dedicate a canvas to him. In the end, canvases stay while most walls vanish. I named the canvas “6313 – Here to Stay”.
