Constructed Styles Exhibition

For those who are into the visual crossover madness of Lego and Graffiti and Street Art, there's going to be a nice exhibition with works from Cole Blaq, the Buntlack crew, Acid 79, Chill, Baks, Diabolo, Pley und Riko.
Also the catalogue of the
LEGO Graffiti Styles Convention in Munich December 2009 will be released, with great impressions of the event and high quality images of all the artwork .
So if it happens you're in the vicinity - drop by and have a beer with the heads.


Presences at the press (all in german, sorry):

Water Dragon

Something different.
First of the dragon series.

Inside the Spraycan 3.0 [360°]

My first kinetik attempt. Building a gear to reduce the speed of the motor was the biggest issue and fitting a fully articulated style into the spraycan.
I have no stand and shooting a film of it in action is now impossible for me, one has to see it.
The lighting does not compliment the build, neither the backdrop or the trans-black cylinder. No matter, trans-blue looked worser in relation to the orange-dk tan inside.
I tried to break the simple flow of the letters by counterhighlighting with dk tan, but I think it's too distractive, as the letters are partly covered and the trans-black cylinder also blurrs it.


I'll have to rework the tan parts and make new flix with a bright backdrop...to be continued.

Liquidation

Another Style from the Elemental Series named Liquidation.

Inspired by the light effect of 'The Burn', here I tried to paint with real light.

Shimmering in the dark.

The Burn [Update]

Updated images on the previously posted
Graffiti Sculpture
The Burn.

Only one single downlight was used as external lighting source.


Thanks everybody for the massive feedback on this sculpture with your bloggings and coments:
