Battle of Art Concept

Everybody know these fascinating battle scenes from the old hiphop movies, i guess. The opponents were facing each other. The breakers meet up at Roxy's or the Mc's that were battling on the basketball court. But what was up with the writers?. I can just remember that they were chasing each other in the tunnels and one was dying after a fight (Ramon?). Even in the movie Stylewars with Cap, it didn't look like they try to find a creativ peacefull solution.
So what i try to say is, that it never looked like that the writers accept, along themselves these peacefull solutions or rules, given by the hip hop world. But neverless, since I know battle's of the (Graffiti-)Writing world, i was always a huge fan of it. My first big battle was against the GFA crew, since them i became a member of GFA. Other battles followed against several writers in Berlin, also W4G 2003 and Montana Stylecombat 2005, in which we were also glorious.
But that is not really the reason why i really love those battle's, i prefer them because writers have 1000 different opinions about judging style and content, so if there is a guideline and a judge, that is accepted by all participants, that means already alot.
 One day i was asked from a very famous swiss artist, if I would like to join a battle of concept, with my 2 hand-Style. Since they realised that this, was something very special, unique and never seen before, they thought i would fit into this battle of concept. And yes indeed i did.
I had in this battle, with my pianting, to compete against powerpoint and laptop presentations and some really crazy concept's. The judges where famous people from the Artworld, but they had nothing to do with contemporary Art, I think. But neverless I ended up in the second place, the explanatory statement from one of the judges for this decision was like: "Graffiti is 80'ties, take a look at Banksy or Obey, they uplifted Graffiti on the next level already, thats why you are on the second place". Then i yelled that Stencil-and Posterart is not graffiti. Actually i dont even know why i replyed, the die is cast. Second place, first loser.

to realize her concept, she needs 1 million euro.

this artist destroyed his own works, to revoke them from the artworld business

As i can remember, this guy putted very old paintings in a washmaschine and showed them after the washing as a relict (the framed painting on the right). His inspiration came from Christianity (Picture in the center)

Backjumps Junior Issue 2.0 Arunski & Poet


Our Berlin wall was actually a canvas. A canvas for the kids. For shure the kids of course don't know the meaning or put it better the dimension, thats behind this historical wall design, with the infamous roll on top. But the history part was not the point. With layed down markers in front of the wall, they knew instinctively what to do (like most writers do).And when one sign appeared, others followed. Nobody had a problem to paint over somebody's else work. Quit the contrary, quik exchanges of color and space happened between strangers. So, that's about instincts. I quit ask myself where the other instincts went. Maybe they never went away, they just came at least, as the result.  I will try to post within the next days a actuall  picture of the wall. Its not like, that anything went wrong. The result after 2 weeks is amazing. unbended power getting lost on every centimeter.
The pictures below are taken by Just from the opening of  the Backjumps the Junior Issue 2.. See more from the opening and the works of the other artists after the jump..

getting post from Shek TCF in 1992

found a nice picture from a trip to a little youthhouse hiphop jam in Wolfsburg, back in 1992. We went to this party with around 150 Berliners and of course the party went out of hand. I can remember beeing getted arrested in front of the jam for lightning a fire together with Saet62(TFB-GFA) and Croms(TFB-GHS), and then at the policestation, I just walked out because it was overcrowed with arrested berliners. Outside of the policestation some officers tryed to catch us, Shek and myself were running away but didn't know where to run to, so we decided to hide in a hallway of an appartmenthouse. We chilled there for about 2 hours and Shek (TCF) was killing the time with a marker...Spirit stands for Spirit of Style (SOS) our old crew.

Soloshow in Bremen pictures

Some pictures, of the camvases that i presented, two months ago at my soloshow in Bremen, hosted by Bigchillexhibits.com. The first 3 works belong to a serie of canvases, that I call "the Outside in". The first works of that series and the idea behind, were shown at "the Fence" groupshow last year in Berlin. Also i had some bigsize Poet-brains with me and some new works on paperboards, where I tryed to cultivate my hand signature. Some of the works are only pictured in frames, since I forgot to take better pictures before they were sold. (For a closer view, please click on the image)
