Probably only of marginal interest to all of you in the old world but if you're around in L.A., this is a swell bit of lunacy and you're invited.
The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles in collaboration with LA Art Machine/Vox Humana,
German Graffiti legends MA'CLAIM.
AKUT, TASSO, CASE and RUSK a.k.a. MA’CLAIM have managed to paint their way up to the very top of the international Graffiti scene in no time. The crew from the former GDR has breathed fresh air into the world of graffiti writing due to their peerless workmanship of a mix of classic graffiti and photorealism.
Their extraordinary productions have set new impulses within the scene. Ma’Claim have attracted an international fan community and are an inspirational source for other graffiti artists. Individual members Case and Akut ( one half of the duo "Herakut") already had solo exhibitions at renown galleries in Los Angeles, this is their first visit and collaboration in Los Angeles with the crew.
The Goethe Institut Los Angeles and the L.A. Art Machine are proud to present Vox Humana, a live mural installation with MA'CLAIM, September 21-24, 2010 on the corner of Palms and Motor in Los Angeles. The Crew will give an artistic commentary on the state of the Earth in an era of climate change.
A second opportunity to see MA’CLAIM in action will be on Saturday, September 25th at the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles where we invite you to meet MA'CLAIM at a live-painting session, presentation and panel conversation between Ma'Claim, L.A. writer icon RETNA and renegade journalist Tom Kummer.
September 21th through 24th 3459 Motor Ave. L.A., CA 90034 Wall Commissioned by the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles. Ma'Claim on Climate. Herakut on the backwall.
September 25th Goethe-Institut Los Angeles 5750 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 100 L.A., CA 90036
2:00 – 6:30 p.m. - Live Painting The Ma'Claim crew will demonstrate their amazing skills by completing a piece on location.
7:00 p.m. - An introduction to Ma'Claim. An exhibition and presentation of their work followed by a panel conversation with special guest Retna. Moderated by Tom Kummer
Tasso is one of the nicest artists I've ever met, I recently spent some time at the IBug Festival in East Germany with him and he was a super host!! We managed to rock this up together... Man's a legend!
This crew and their stay in L.A. was just smashing. They got off the plane and have been painting for six days straight. They finished two large walls, a van and a huge canvas in the live painting. Herakut left another piece downtown on top off all that...
