EPOS257: Urban Shoot Painting

Schönes Projekt “Urban Shoot Painting” von EPOS257 in Prague und der suburbanen Umgebung – zwar schon ein bisschen älter aber gut. Mehr zum Projekt gibt es hier.

Continuation of the project Urban Shoot Paintings of 2009. The theme – a gesture signalling an attack – remains the same. Its essence, however, relates more to the very roots of guerrilla art (for it now involves a homemade weapon and ammunition), established at the end of the 1960s in the US by activist groups refashioning billboard adverts. Furthermore, I move around with the weapon in the open urban landscape. In my case, it is not an attack on a particular advert but billboard as a medium in general, which in this context represents a painter`s canvas in the urban landscape.
