Wir haben uns die neuen aktuellen UV/HDR Fotos von neuen BOND Pieces zum Anlass genommen, ein Spotlight mit dem in Leipzig lebenden Graffitikünstler zusammenzustellen. Viele weitere Wandarbeiten seiner Reisen nach Asien und Leinwände gibt´s hier auf BOND TRULUV´s Website, das Cellophane Graffiti Video aus Schweden nochmal hier, wer´s verpasst haben sollte…
Originally born and raised in Germany in 1981 ”Bond TruLuv” became involved with graffiti-writing at the beginning of this millennium. Since then he has eagerly committed himself to examining new ways of composing letters and calligraphic ways of expression, as well as modes of fine arts and graphic design. His permanent longing for transformation and variation in terms of material and style is cultivated through extensive travelling as well as the search for environments and sceneries that inspire new pieces interactively.
The artistic map of “Bond” and “TruLuv” (some of his pseudonyms) features murals and exhibitions all over Europe as well as Egypt, and especially in Southeast Asia (India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia). There he found social life and culture happening extensively on the streets, offering a public forum where his graffiti would be appreciated by the locals and would adopt the various dominating atmospheres and emotions. At the same time he is constantly experimenting with different materials such as canvas, video and installations.
He recently finished the Darmasiswa scholarship at the University of Arts (ISI) in Yogjakarta, Indonesia after receiving his MA in Anthropology in 2010 and currently works as an independent artist, commuting between Southeastasia and Germany.
