„The capitol city of Kuala Lumpur is one of Asia’s biggest transit hubs and home of the only metro system in Malaysia. As of 2004 the metro lines, which originally operated as separate companies, merged under the RapidKL network. The RapidKL has become a target for vandals worldwide, resulting in a police unit specifically dedicated to protecting the metro depots against graffiti. RapidKL runs both driver-operated and automated lines, creating many interesting painting opportunities. „

5MINUTES WITH: PLOTBOT KEN [BERLIN] http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/27/5minutes-with-plotbot-ken-berlin/ http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/27/5minutes-with-plotbot-ken-berlin/#comments Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:22:35 +0000 http://ilovegraffiti.de/?p=24861 [more]]]> Street Artist Plotbot (KEN) became famous in Berlin for his perfection of multilayer stencils and par amounting backgrounds that have been appearing on the streets, abandoned buildings, historical places, power stations, chemical factories, military bases and other exceptional locations in and around the city. There are various reasons that are motivating artists to bring their art on the street and extraordinary places. In Plotbot´s case, one reason is for sure: His apocalyptic works and their environment are artistic synthesis that are developing an expression that could never been paralleled in a gallery.

“What Plotbots Street Art is visualising a reminiscence of our past, presents and future.”

„Mostly, classic alphabet posters tend to have animals and cute stuff to symbolize each letter, but I really felt it was due time for something more street and hip hop. So, based on my own background in the graffiti culture, I made graffiti alphabet – with everything from Arrows and Fat cap to Throw-up and Vaughn Bodé symbolizing the letters.“

It´s one unique alphabet poster, where every letter symbolizes some part of graffiti history. With explanatory texts for each word, both graffiti writers and complete toys gets some graffiti history at the same time. The cool, simple and playful design look as good in the living room or the office, as in a kids room.

Size: A2 (420 x 594 mm/16.53 x 23.39 inches)
Color: Two-color print
Paper: 170 g white uncoated paper
Signed by Disk.

The poster is available in DISK´s online shop!

After many years of posting Teaser and Trailer Clips now there is aScreening Date for the GIRL POWER Movie in Germany. The Urban Spree Gallery Berlin is hosting the Berlin Premiere of the documentary movie featuring some interesting characters of female graffiti writers on May 20th, 2016.

The movie is directed by czech female writer Sany, 7 years in the making, spanning 15 cities, portraying the work and lifestyle of 28 graffiti artists and photographers:

„Girl Power is an intense travelogue that embarks you from Prague to Moscow, Cape Town, Kabul, Sydney, Madrid, Berlin, Toulouse, Barcelona and all the way to the legendary New York pioneer Lady Pink. The graffiti community is predominantly a man’s world, and men often share the view that graffiti is not for girls. And yet women have become increasingly more emancipated in recent years; there are female graffiti shows, magazines and websites. Girl Power captures the stories of ladies who have succeeded in the male graffiti world.“

The screening will be preceded by the premiere of the czech hardcore graffiti documentary Low Society at the Urban Spree the Biergarten.

The greek mural artist INO recently completed a mural in Athens entitled „Snowblind“ supporting the Prometheus Liver Patient Association, an awareness campaign for Hepatitis B and C in the greek population. Officials say that 200,000 greek people suffering from this disease, only 4% of them receive treatment.

„On the occasion of a Public Information Campaign on the Hepatitis C disease, iNO was commissioned to create a new mural on a very central area of downtown Athens. The Greek street artist created this super-large piece showing a faceless man blinded from his success in the pursuit of money, however he is actually sick and he doesn’t know it. A blue splash in the shape of Liver indicates that something is wrong.“

On a side note: a few days ago INO posted a critical comment on his instagram about Mural Artists painting their work with projectors and not freehand, like he do. „Snowblind“ was painted without projector, but to be honest, most of the Murals we post here were painted freestyle. Anyways, checkout the video by Dimos Pavlopoulos below:

„Since the 2004 opening of Bangkok’s official Metro system, the beautiful red, purple and yellow striped trains of the underground MRT have been a goal for metro writers worldwide. Infamous for the snake infested jungle surrounding it and the Royal Thai Police who diligently guard it, many writers have attempted to paint the RAMA IX Metro Depot, but very few have succeeded. While most tourists visit Bangkok to spend their time with working girls and lady boys, UTAH & ETHER focused their energy and attention on painting.“

TRAILER – „Wenn der Vorhang fällt“ – A documentary movie about german Hip Hop http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/19/trailer-wenn-der-vorhang-faellt-a-documentary-movie-about-german-hip-hop/ http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/19/trailer-wenn-der-vorhang-faellt-a-documentary-movie-about-german-hip-hop/#comments Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:02:01 +0000 http://ilovegraffiti.de/?p=24808 [more]]]> Here is some information for our german readers interested in german Hip Hop and its History. Filmmaker Michael Münch is about to screen his documentary movie „Wenn der Vorhang fällt“, with focus on history and development of german Hip Hop featuring some interesting heads such as Sido, Chefket, Marteria, Max Herre, Prinz Pi or Samy Deluxe. „Wenn der Vorhang fällt“ premiers at this years DokFest on May, 26th, 2016 and take a cinema tour afterwards. Who wants to know whoelse is in the movie go and checkout Michael Münch´s Foto-Blog.

Um was geht es in »Wenn der Vorhang fällt«?

In der Dokumentation geht es darum, die Entwicklungen und Geschehnisse der deutschen Rap-Geschichte aus Sicht seiner Protagonisten zu erzählen. Wir haben mit vielen bekannten deutschen HipHop-Musikern Interviews über die Besonderheiten des Genres führen können. Dabei ist eine Erzählung entstanden, die ziemlich authentisch über die ersten Erfolge, das erste Geld und die ersten Enttäuschungen berichtet. Man könnte fast sagen, dass es eine Coming-of-Age-Geschichte ist, wenn man deutschen Rap als Gesamtwerk vieler Künstler betrachtet.

Wie lange habt ihr an dem Film gearbeitet und wie habt ihr den Film finanziert?

Die Dokumentation wurde komplett privat von mir finanziert. Mein Steuerberater findet das natürlich nicht so witzig, aber beim Film muss man eben auch einiges in die Waagschale werfen. Ich muss aber dazu sagen, dass ich unglaublich viel Unterstützung von meinem Team erhalten haben, die alle kostenlos mit mir zusammengearbeitet haben, weil sie mir vertrauen und wussten, dass ich dieses Projekt bis zum Ende durchziehen werde. Dann kam noch dazu, dass wir vom Kamerahersteller ARRI die Chance bekommen haben, mit einer AMIRA-Kamera zu drehen. Die Kamera war brandneu damals und wurde speziell für solche Art von Point-and-Shoot-Drehs konzipiert. Das war echt eine geile Sache.

Im Jahr 2010 habe ich zum ersten mal während einer langen Reise darüber nachgedacht, welches Thema mich wirklich über einen längeren Zeitraum faszinieren würde. Letztendlich bin ich immer wieder bei der Musik gelandet. Über ein bis zwei Jahre hat sich dann der Wunsch gefestigt, Rap als Genre hierfür zu nehmen. 2013 habe ich etwa ein Jahr mit Vorbereitungen, Recherchen und Kontaktaufnahmen verbracht. In drei Drehblöcken haben wir von Sommer 2014 bis März 2015 gedreht, was eigentlich relativ schnell war. Wie es dann nun mal so ist braucht aber auch alles seine Zeit, sodass wir eben jetzt erst wirklich fertig geworden sind. Manchmal ist es auch ganz gut, ein Werk ruhen zu lassen und ein paar Wochen später wieder drauf zu schauen – fresh eyes!

BASEL – Proposal for renaming a street to „Sigi von Koeding Promenade“ – DARE http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/18/basel-proposal-for-renaming-a-street-to-sigi-von-koeding-promenade-dare/ http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/18/basel-proposal-for-renaming-a-street-to-sigi-von-koeding-promenade-dare/#comments Mon, 18 Apr 2016 11:09:41 +0000 http://ilovegraffiti.de/?p=24795 [more]]]> Unbenannt-1

„Die Galgenhügel-Promenade befindet sich im Gellert. Sie führt an einem legendären Teil der Basler Line vorbei. Auf diesem Teilstück befinden sich noch immer sehr viele alte Bilder von DARE welche wahrscheinlich bis in alle Ewigkeit dort stehen bleiben werden. Wir sind der Meinung dass man diese Promenade zu Ehren des 2010 verstorbenen Künstlers in “Sigi Von Koeding Promenade” umbenennen müsste. Falls Ihr diese Meinung teilt meldet Euch doch alle mal schriftlich bei der Nomenklaturkommission der Stadt Basel. Am besten schreibt Ihr kurz warum die Promenade (Eurer Meinung nach) einen neuen Namen erhalten sollte. Eventuell wird das Ganze ja nach der hundertsten Anfrage irgendwann ernsthaft in Erwägung gezogen. Also gebt Euch einen Ruck und holt wieder einmal das schöne Briefpapier raus!“


What the team behind WANDSCHMUCK BASEL basically propose is the renaming of the Galgenhügel-Promenade into Sigi von Koeding Promenade as dedication to the graffiti artist DARE, who passed away in 2010. The Galgenhügel-Promenade is a street right next to the famous Gellert Trackside, where still many DARE pieces can be seen on the walls. So, if you would like to support this project, send a written letter to the posted responsibilites below. We did, great idea! It would be the very first time ever a street name is dedicated to a graffiti artist.

The Grifters have the pleasure to present you this historic video series, filled with adventures from 11 Countries and 37 Cities. Packed in 12 Episodes, counting more than 90min of action. 2 new episodes to be released each week.

In episode 02 you can watch footage from 2011 and their trip to India. Their destinations were New Delhi, Kolkata (the only two cities with operational Metro systems at the time) and Mumbai (where the Metro was under construction). The trip resulted in the first graffiti hits on these three systems.

In 2015 they began to edit the footage for these episodes. In this process several hard drives crashed, resulting in the loss of footage & photos vital to the project, including all of the footage and all but a couple of photos of the actions in New Delhi & Mumbai.

„And so, four years after their initial trip to India, with the Mumbai Metro finally operational and 4 more metro systems in India set to open, Utah & Ether made the decision to push back the release of their project and return to India for a second time. Their plan this time was to revisit New Delhi and Mumbai to retake the footage they had lost and to travel to Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Jaipur to make 4 more first hits on the new systems there. „The cost of sending the hard drives to a laboratory for recovery of our files was more expensive than just going to India again. And it wasn’t 100% certain that the lab would even be able to recover all the files. We knew that since the last time we’d been in India, there were 4 new Metro systems in construction. Also, our filming equipment had gotten a significant upgrade since our first trip, and we were more seasoned in filming these types of actions in these types of locations. We decided that all around it just made sense to go back“ said UTAH & ETHER.“

Heading back to one of the most intense and physically/mentally exhausting countries they have ever visited, they knew that the trip could turn out to be a total disaster. „We knew from the first time, that it was quite possible that most of the trip would be spent puking in a hotel room from food poisoning, or recovering in a hospital bed from heat stroke. We knew that the security situation in India could be very tense as all the metro is often secured by military armed with automatic weapons, and that maybe we would get to the yards and there wouldn’t be much opportunity. We knew that the odds wouldn’t necessarily be in our favor, but we also knew we had to try.“

SPECTRA – 1010, Cisco Merel, Felipe Pantone & Nelia – A film by Selina Miles http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/17/spectra-1010-cisco-merel-felipe-pantone-nelia-a-film-by-selina-miles/ http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/17/spectra-1010-cisco-merel-felipe-pantone-nelia-a-film-by-selina-miles/#comments Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:24:18 +0000 http://ilovegraffiti.de/?p=24776 [more]]]> „Every form of art is, somehow, experimental. A true artist proposes, takes risks and tries to push to the limits. Making art is to invent art. In contemporary art, with the declared intention of rupture that characterizes it and with its focus on individuals beyond schools and groups, this becomes evident. Each artist has its proposal and performs a research of its own.“

Filmmaker Selina Miles spent time at the preparations of the exhibition SPECTRA (Articruz and Marion Gallery, Panama), that gathers four young artists with shared concerns but with clearly structured and differentiated speeches: 1010, Cisco Merel, Felipe Pantone and Nelia. The works in this show emerged from a temporary residence of the artists in Articruz workshop, which has allowed them to explore different materials and techniques.

SPECTRA gathers the proposals of these artists in a variety of surfaces to state that the value of an artwork relies upon the speech of each artist, and when someone has managed to properly structure a particular visual language, it will work in any given surface.

All of the four artists were trained in design, and arose from the world of graffiti and street art. Their visual vocabulary was forged on the street and in murals, with the particularity that they have focused their interests on abstraction, geometry and perception, creating languages from pure forms and color.

Now they are all in a transition process between urban art and conventional works on permanent surfaces, between the outdoor walls and the walls in the galleries. This is the reason why they coordinated a collaboration with Articruz so that these artists can experiment with the various possibilities that the workshop provides them. Thus, this transition in support, from the wall to the frame, can be more effective and adapted to the needs of each artist’s speech.

The result is SPECTRA, a combination of technical and discursive solutions, which interact with each other and are now being shown to viewers and visitors of the exhibition.

5MINUTES WITH: AKA6 [ST.PETERSBURG] http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/15/5minutes-with-aka6-st-petersburg/ http://ilovegraffiti.de/blog/2016/04/15/5minutes-with-aka6-st-petersburg/#comments Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:19:04 +0000 http://ilovegraffiti.de/?p=24755 [more]]]>

“Graffiti ruined my life” and “graffiti saved my life” are pretty common phrases seen written next to a piece. Those might be extreme cases, but both have rung true for different people. It can be a self destructive sport, and the side you end up agreeing with depends on who you are and how you treat it. If you’re already involved in other trouble, it might be a path out. If you have personal issues, it could be a release valve. But it can lead to its own trouble and issues too, whether that be violence, legal consequences, or injury. Deciding if any of that is worth it is a personal decision, just as the level of risk involved is too. Nothing in life is guaranteed though, even if you play it safe. Graffiti artist AKA6 from St.Petersburg (Russia) makes his very own choices and is smart about them. He is what we call a notorious graffiti artist from the streets. It´s impossible to walk the streets of St.Petersburg without spotting a big AKA6 piece somewhere around the corner, up on a roof or the Neva river side. But it´s not the only reason why we decided to feature him for this 5MINUTES episode. Have a look inside the life and mind of AKA6 – a very interesting character of the russian graffiti movement and for sure one of the most serious streetwriters we ever met.

5MINUTES is a project by ILOVEGRAFFITI.DE in cooperation with ARTE CREATIVE
