Mittenimwald

To promote his current exhibition, we received from the artist Mittemnimwald a portrait. StreetLove loves his artwork which is always full of meaning.
Pictures are better than any words!

Mittenimwald, who originally followed a career in advertising, often draws on classic advertising methods in creating his stencilled paste-ups. He intertwines them with punk and tattoo elements to create a peculiar mix of sex sells and revolutionary practices.

Mittenimwald’s motif selection ranges from a poster campaign about poverty, hunger and mettwurst to metal-tattooed urban beauties and skull-trimmed pop art icons. Commerce meets anarchy, punk meets advertising – Mittenimwald’s urban image world appears to be the artistic antithesis to the guerrilla marketing of the advertising industry.

By means of quotations from the punk scene, Mittenimwald’s works seem to point out that each revolution will absorb its offspring: sell out or realness is a matter of perspective, but in the end it’s all about fun in this great rock’n’roll swindle!

If you’re based in Germany, don’t miss the exhibition of Mittenimwald named Día de Muertos.

Día de los Muertos, is the Day of the Dead like a holiday celebrated in Mexico. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The Day of the Dead is a time of celebration, where partying and eating is common. Some people believe that possessing Day of the Dead items can bring good luck”
