Copenhagen was once the home of a world famous brewery, Carlsberg. In recent years, Carlsberg has moved their production of beer and sodas out of Copenhagen and left a whole neighborhood in west Copenhagen empty. This area is going through a transformation, out with production, in with creatives, businesses and sports, later comes residents. In one of the giant warehouses that was once used for empty beer bottles is now an area for street sports. Together with Tiws we got two giant walls in there, each about 120 square meters, where we could do anything we wanted. We brought in the paint gun and gave the walls a layer of white, then a layer of bright and fresh colors. I went for a hot background in pink and yellow and Tiws went for a colder background in blue, black and green. Then it was time to do some giant spraypaint styles on top. Tiws was joined by Reks FSC who did some flying eyeballs, and I did a number of throwups for some of my close painting friends around the world. In the end the two massive walls was finished side by side, but very different and they have now transformed the whole warehouse into a much more street feeling location. After the walls where done, the warehouse was used for the Copenhagen Street Festival and the Mayor of Culture of Copenhagen, Pia Allerslev came by and gave the opening speech in front of my giant wall.
The painting season of 2013 here in Copenhagen is coming to an end and its time to squeeze the last pieces out before winter sets in. So Tiws and I went out to do a big gold blockbuster wall at the Sydhavnen Hall of Fame in Copenhagen which will soon be demolished. It gets dark pretty early by now, so we had to work fast and efficient and in the end we finished just as darkness was falling.
