TAPE ART: Temporary Vandalism
Penetrate, transform, pimp! –we approach exterior and interior spaces with this motto in mind. Tape is definitely the best material for this. It sticks forever but can be removed without leaving a trace if necessary. No matter where, no matter what, no matter when: no wall, no window, no floor or any other surface is safe from our interventions! We are inspired by our years of experience in urban art, contemporary art, architecture, printing, film and music. Our skills include tape art as well as everything created with a spray can. Our “vandalism” can be encountered on the streets, facades and walls, in museums and galleries, as well as in commissioned works. Our “vandalism” can be found on the street, on facades and walls, in museums and galleries, but also in many commissioned works.
Artworks created with brown and colored packaging tape. This type of art technique works only along with the light. Therefore, the works are always lit from behind. Either with sunlight or artificial lightings such as LED or fluorescent tubes. For smaller pictures, I mostly build a lightbox. In this gallery, you can also observe the progress I made in this technique in recent years.
