Then He Decided To Cross The Tracks - Solo Show

In 2010 I visited Vienna. As part of my scholarship "Trainworkers - in the footsteps of nocturnal shadows" of the Cultural Foundation of Saxony, I made contact with trainwriters from Vienna. I accompanied them during their nightly activities and photographically documented these experiences. From the documents emerged a series of drawings and screen prints, which have been shown in Amsterdam, Berlin and Dresden.

In 2018 I return to Vienna. Before arriving in Vienna, I will draw numerous drawings about expectation, which serve as the basis for his stay in Vienna. Once I arrive in Vienna I will discover the public space of the Danube metropolis day and night. I will search for places - for visible and hidden works. Of each work I take a part with me.

Out of expectation drawings and fragments of works I will create a new egozin. The Egozin will be printed live during the opening at Oxymoron Gallery and will be available there and after.

On the 22nd of November, the solo exhibition "Then He Decided To Cross The Tracks " opens at Oxymoron Gallery.

Title: Then He Decided To Cross The Tracks

Location: Oxymoron Gallery, Burggasse 98, A-1070 Vienna, Austria -

Vernissage / Opening: 22.November 2018, 6pm - 10pm / 6pm - 10pm from 7.30pm live - screen printing of new egozine

От пътуващо студио за ситопечат до авторски издания

In 2013  me and the Bulgarian Urban Artist Valeri Gyurov (GIFTED:) realized with partners from all over Bulgaria a tour with a moveable screen printing studio. We introduced a large group of people to the technique of Do It Yourself screen printing. Thanks to the support of Goethe Institut Sofia workshops have been hold for free in Burgas, Pleven, Plovdiv, Ruse, Shumen and Sofia.

During this period I introduced Nadezhda Georgieva and she got so inspired, that one year after, she founded Sito Studio. Today Sito Studio is well known in the Bulgarian illustration and urban art world for their well done prints and contemporary illustrations. Sito Studio was the first place of it’s kind and for four years teached over 250 people in the technique. Nadezhda Georgieva would like to share with you the future plans for the studio and the story behind. She will also show some of her recent drawstring bags, t-shirts, prints and give you a sparkle about independent working and creating your own art products.

I will talk about the „2013 - Screen Printing Bulgaria tour“, my printed works after my stay in Bulgaria and of course about recently printed works -  hand printed Egozines. For my Egozines i used spray painted papers from visited places around the world and folded those papers to DIY Egozines.

In 2018 I already realized two Egozines - „Tel Aviv - Israel…“ and „April 2018“

After the presentation we will print live new works on papers painted in Bulgaria. The fresh prints will be directly for sale.

Who? Jens Besser (DE) & Nadеzhda Georgieva (BG) & special guests
The talk will be hold in English !  

Where? Gifted Sofia, ul. "Ivan Denkoglu" 24, 1000 Sofia

When? Saturday, 3rd November - 7 p.m.

Fröbtau unites the Dresden dirstricts of Friedrichstadt and Löbtau.

Fröbtau - that means unauthorized graffitis at abandoned factories in the 90’s, illegal urban art shows in empty residential houses and street art posters by the group NOLOGO in 2000’s.

Since 1989 the appearance of Fröbtau changed intensively. Contributions of local actors like riesa efau, Friedrichstadtzentral e.V., konglomerat e.V. or Jens Besser lead to diverse alternative life in the districts of Friedrichstadt and Löbtau.

Jens Besser operates globally as muralist. In the 90’s he already started his activities in urban design in Fröbtau. Later Besser invited international artists in projects at Motorenhalle e.g. „Muralismo Morte“ or „Conceptual Vandalism“. 2011 Besser started to curate the public gallery „RAUM City Bilder“ in cooperation with riesa efau.

The urban art bicycle tour invites to discover the prospering urban district of Fröbtau. The tour is part of Roads Festival .

Tains, Travels & Papers - solo show at TEGN: Art space

In April I'm invited for a solo show at TEGN: Art-space in Jyderup/DK. The space is located in a town with only 4000 inhabitants. It will be really interesting to present my works in the countryside area of Denmark, because my works are usually much connected to urbanism and metropolitain chaos. At least Jyderup has a train line including a station.

The show starts on 28th April. On the same day i present my catalogue "Trains , Travels & Murals". Thanx a lot for the invitation to Anders Reventlov.

More murals from 2016

This is a mural painted in Dresden-Prohlis without sketch. Painted like a street bombing piece. And while you paint you get an idea what it deals with. This one is about panel and T2B sized works on trains - compared to a wall. Mural in Dresden-Prohlis The Flying Spaghetti Monster above all During the LackStreicheKleber - Festival 2016 I painted some works at Groove Station Dresden. This one shows the flying spaghetti monster above the arms of an unknown priests group.
