Battlebox “Autofreier StadTraum”

Am 21. September fand die vorläufig letzte Battlebox diesen Jahres statt, im Rahmen des "Autofreien StadTraums" auf dem Osterfeuerberger Ring.
Es war windig, es war regnerisch, aber es hat Spaß gemacht. Ich hatte zum ersten Mal in dieser Saison die Gelegenheit, mal den "Verantwortlichkeits-Trip" etwas loszulassen (durch starke Hilfe meiner Mitstreiter) und selber auch mal ein bißchen zu feiern.
Danke euch!

On the 21st september we had the last Battlebox of this year so far. It was windy, it was rainy, but we had some fun. I for the first time this season had the opportunity to let go of the "responsible-trip" a bit and celebrate a little, like others did all the time.

TSW Sketchbook ca. ‘91

A friend of mine gave me this PDF with scans he made from old black-and-white copies of sketches, not only by TSW / The Style Warriorz, but loads of others aswell. In some cases it's hard to tell who made the original sketch, since at that times, people used to make their own tag on these copies, before they were given way to the next guy.
A few names here are Scez / Zoe (the later Keno (R.I.P.)), Menace, Jore, Eton, Newton, Caras, D-Nize, Jase, B-Base, me, and then there's some stuff from other towns and UK aswell.
The quality is bad, I think it was one of his first tries to digitally archive stuff in the late 90s... (and of course, many of the copies have been bad quality already before that)

KM-ON-E

I started this triptych about two years ago but only finished it last week, two days before winter solstice. The background is done in cyan, magenta and yellow. The black and white stencil layers above consist of the five elements of my name K-E-N-M-O, so it took 20 steps on each of the three parts to get completed.
KM (which I used as short for Kenmo in the past) stands for 'Kosmic Man' ('Kosmischer Mensch' in german). ON stands for the opposite of off, meaning 'awake, alive, vibrating' and E stands for the energy, excitement and ecstacy - not in a sense of escapism to flee the troubles of the world, but rather 'enrealment', meaning the natural state of a free human being.
The size is 1m x 40cm each, 1,20m x 1m complete. Spraypaint on canvas.

A Shift in the Direction 1997-1998

As one can imagine from reading my former posts about my history, these birth- and death-experiences led to a shift in the direction of my life. And as there has been a shift in the direction of my life, there has been a shift in my artistical expression also. My works started to point more and more inwards and became more influenced by geometrical, fractal patterns or organical ones on the other hand.
Here you can see my first kaleidoscope-like works emerging out of the letter K, which later led me to my logo which I still use and I´m still working with these geometrical-fractal patterns that I created out of the essence of my graffiti styles.
