Untitled Mural for Kunstkurort Zauberberg in Ballenstedt/Anhalt

For "Amuse Gueule", the first appetizer at Kunstkurort Zauberberg, I realized a large sized paper based work. This temporary mural is basiclly made out of two layers - a base made out of primed papers using abstract structures connected to Urban Art such as drips and teared up papers and drawings over the pasted layer. Over the final shape of the pasted papers i draw some figurative and abstract drawings. Well recognizeable elements of my works such as trains, cargo bikes or an inside view in a room can be found. But there are also comments add to the place, such as an old person going around with a typical walker, a mix of caps and hats and some crazy guys. A network of red lines and small circles connects the whole setting.

Infinite Transportation - a tribute to the never stopping traffic flow

From May 27 to June 3, I realized the large-format mural "Infinite Transportation" - in German "Der Unendliche Verkehr". The mural can be seen at the new hotel Antonstraße 43 in Dresden.

I revisit the basic form of the upright infinity loop in this work. Already in 2013, I used the vertical infinity sign for the series "Train of Infinity" and let international trains draw circles forever. The vertical loop adapts optimally to the vertical length of the façade.

On closer inspection, you can see on the one hand rail, air, bus, bicycle and boat traffic, on the other hand you will also find hidden details like revereing to underground cultures such as the "Hipster Hobo" and a rave party under the bridge, the hashtag #Metatreno painted on a freight train or a moving house on a freight car - a reverence to Adams & Itso's art pieces.
The work also reflects current aspects and discussions about transport policy. Cargo bikes and electric powered drone aircraft can be seen in the upper and lower areas.

Many more details await the lingering observer day and night. The artwork will be visible at night after completion of the building in dimmed light. The work was realized with a mixture of façade paints and acrylic spray paints. all photos by Sven Ellger
