Pure Evil Gallery just opened an awesome new space on 96 – 98 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4RH. One of my new paintings is shown there alongside Banksy, Pure Evil, Ben Eine, Herakut, RCF, Isaac Cordal and many more. Go check it out! Photos by Marco Prosch.
There’s a 6 pages interview with me in Canela Mag no. 4. This one is in Spanish and in English. Here are some pics:
The new Graffiti Art special - Le Guide de l’art contemporain urbain 2013 is out since today. The guide presents more than 100 established and emerging artists, contains a list of more than 200 galleries and gives advice on how to buy Urban Contemporary art. It is well worth to buy, so check your newsstand or order it directly from Graffiti Art Magazine. Here is my double page and the cover.
In September, I painted a 550 sqm wall all by myself in only 7 days. After the 700 Wall, this was the largest mural I ever painted. However, in comparison the 640sqm of the 700 Wall took me 4 months to finish. So the 500 Wall is my very own time record. I used more than 1000 cans and painted 10-12 hours a day. I am scared of heights, so this wall was quite a challange in many ways. The mural is a massive version of one of my latest canvases which I used as a “sketch” for the wall.
Thank you to all who supported me on the way! Special thanks goes out to Molotow who are always open for my mad ideas, the Alte Messe/LEVG who provided me with a cherry picker and wall paint as well as Joop Flack who documented the project and made a great making-of film. The wall can be found in Leipzig, Germany at the Alte Messe (old fair). Check out the photos by Marco Prosch and Joop Flack, as well as the film:
In September I went to Rennes in France to paint at Teenage Kicks. A lot of good artists were invited and the event had a really good vibe. I painted alongside Scien & Klor of 123Klan and Kem5. Thanks to Patrice Poch and Mathias Breze and their crew for the good time and for organising it all so well. The action shots were taken by Benoit Roche and the final shots by Gildas Raffenel.
I’ll be at Teenage Kicks in France this weekend. See you there.
