Dane TCF sketches in 1993

its about now 15 Years ago that i saw new stuff from DANE, a writer who belongs to the first West-Berlin generation of painters. These generation started in the early/mid 80'ties the Movement in West-Berlin on the walls and especially on the famous Berlin wall. DANE belongs to the TCFcrew (The Comic Freezers or The City Famous), back then together with SHEK, DASK aka ROSE and SKONE (Dane's brother), they did legendary walls in the late 80ties in West-berlin and were count as a big influence on Berlin Style. I can also remember that Dane were one of the, if not the cleanest painter back in 1988. His lines were always so sharp and precisely that it was hard to believe that he just did this with his hand and without no help. Also his Style was one of the most elegance, always well proportional. Very Simple with mostly no elements. That brought him in Berlin the titel: the Perfectionist. Many Berlin Writer's like for example DEJOE (GFA/DC) count him as an huge Influence on their own Style. Even if he is not really painting anymore since many Years, DANE is still a great part of the Berlin Writing History. Nowadays he's working as an illustrator and Art Director for worldwide known Magazines. Check some old Styles here, here, here, and here and some of his last sketches from 1993 down under.....
