Since Bansky got famous, Streetart seems the new big thing on the art market and every second galerist looks for it ….
I love streetart, especially cause it´s a wonderfull, most of the time extremely surealistic looking thing to photograph. Sadly Munich is not the city with a lot of streetart (execpt of graffiti), so I´m not gettin that much chance to shoot it. But thank god there is the internet where you can find a lot of it and about the artist. So to keep my blog running I decided to feature some of my favorite german artists.
I´ll start with Evol from Berlin who paints the faces of old, shabby buildings as a miniature on telecommunication boxes and other free spaces in the streets of former East Berlin. On the other side he makes extremely detailed and realistic paintings of house faces (or parts of it) on used cardboard pieces for hanging it on your living room wall. I like his work a lot because it has an super graphical but realistic look and he loves to make it perfect to the smallest design. Hopefully I´ll find some of his Streetworks on my next trip to Berlin, cause I think they´ll be extraordinary objects to photograph.
Here are some recent works of him to give you a little impression of his work:
Big work on concrete blocks in Berlin
Paint on cardboard
Installation in an apartment
