Last year i went to Ukraine to participate in the autonomous organized festival "Black Circle". After six hours staying in a bus at the polish-ukrainian border I finally arrived in Lviv. There Blazej Rusin picked my up and the whole Black Circle Crew met up at the regional train station of Lviv. It was sunny weather and perfect time for camping in the carpatian mountains. The 2016 edtion of Black Circle was held near the river Stryi somewhere near the town Stryi. For about 6 days we stayed together in a rural area near an unfinished nuclear powerplant. The construction of the powerplant stopped at an early stage but in the whole area we found nice huge walls and hidden spots of all kind. Caves, Large walls, small walls, rooms of empty houses...
During my stay at Black Circle I met a lot of ukrainian artists. Some of them took time to do collaborations. Here s a collabo with eas from Krementschuk.
One night we had terrible strong rain. To survive the rain and not just sitting in the tents we started to sing and move like Indians around our fire place. Out of this movement we performed the "Karimata Brigada Dance" - the "Thermal Mat Brigade Dance". As a tribute to that crazy night i painted a mural.
For the whole week we stayed offline and we had a lot of talks and a nice time in the outback. In between also some deep thoughts about urban art theory.
Thanks a lot to the whole Black Circle Crew !
