Ökokiste

Hier der fertige Transporter für die Ökokiste - meine erste Fahrzeug-Gestaltung.

Here´s the van I painted for the "Ökokiste", a delivery service for organic veg and fruits. It´s the first time I painted a car.

Battlebox Marktplatz Bremen

Battlebox auf dem Bremer Marktplatz heute nachmittag, im Rahmen der "Messe der Kinder- und Jugendkultur", in Kooperation mit dem Kubo und dem Schlachthof.
Im Finale Onkel Oxe und Käpt´n Kenmo mit dem Thema "digitale Litfaßsäule" - wie immer in 10 min auf die Wand geworfen. Das war cool!

Battlebox on Bremen´s marketplace right in the city center.

So the concept is this:
We come with this foldable, rotatable wall, useable from both sides, which can be turned into a square box, too (hence the name, stemming from the original performance "Pandora´s Box").
We´ve got 4 Artists introducing themselves and competing with each other (therefore the "battle" to the box).
We´ve got a DJ, pumping hip hop beats, and the MC, communicating with the audience. He asks the crowd for words, terms, subjects of our next paintings. Often we have a combination of 2 or 3 terms to be the subject of our work.
We then get 10 minutes time to create a painting instandly to it.
The audience then decides per applaus who won the battle and is going to have another round - until the final one!
Allthewhile the wall gets covered with fresh white paint on the backside, after each rotation.

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.

B-Box “Sebaldsbrooklyn” Graffiti Jam

September 13 -
relatively small crowd, but really the right people to celebrate such an event!
As usual: they said it, we sprayed it - within 10 minutes, battling each other.
Not long anymore and we will have another video, I hope...

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)
