When I got the announcement of this exhibition, I was irritated at first; this name was not unknown to me, but I just didn’t get it! But then! He first appeared on my radar through his collaboration on the mural „Remixing Gerresheim“ for the 40grad Urbanart Festival 2013, which unfortunately no longer exists. He also left his mark on a second mural in Franklinstraße in collaboration with BROKEN FINGAZ and KJ263.
