1969 born in London, spent his childhood in London and Hongkong, moved to Germany at the age of seven
Graffiti-Writer (as Codeak) since 1984, being among the first Writers in Germany. Studied at the academies of fine arts in Brunswig and Munich
„The Networking in the Graffiti-scene was one of the best experiences
I made in my life. To be in the scene, was like having a family and this was a global one. Painting together side by side was an intense collaboration.
One key to my artwork is, to ask where we are located. It’s a question about space. Finding answers to this is like completing our own invented three-
dimensional jigsaw puzzle. These kind of complex structures give me the sight of an overview, how we are transconnected, taking and giving influences. This is what I’m reflecting in my work.
Which project will you have finished before you come to Munich?
Where are youheading to after SCALE?
Two weeks before SCALE I’ll have this wall project for the ColorKubes Project in Kassel. At same time as SCALE we (Giussani, Kapitola, Man) as an artist group will set up a huge steel/aluminium Wallsculpture for the MVHS Munich.
What is you actual "artistic concern" or theme?
In the studio I’m like a lost backpacker, I love to „slacken the reins“ and just go forward and discover whats next. By exploring the shape and reaching the top I realise the entire stack. All the sediments of doing creates the artistic landscape. Its like alchemy. This is the actual essence of my work.
What are you looking forward to regarding this project?
Working, having fun, partying! A familiar meeting with inspirational colleagues and good old friends! I’m really looking forward to this exceptional and outstanding gathering!
