From September 26th to 30th 2011 several members of GRL Germany had the chance to be part of this years International Urban Art Festival „Sexto Asalto„!
Based in the City of Zaragoza in central Spain, graffiti artists from all over Europe and Spain were invited to do walls in the old-town. Graffiti Research Lab Germany was represented with a talk, two workshops (Creative Code and GML) a hand full of mushroom Throwies, the launch of bombIR 2.0 and of course a night out with blitzTag. Here some pictures from a truly inspiring, busy and VERY sunny week!
At August 5th the Light Rider had yet another chance to prove its awesomeness even without light. Thea (näh & werk studio) and C3MY (yarn throwies) loaded the Light Rider with a sewing machine, chairs, mats and materials and rode it to Alexanderplatz. At the spot we set up our small open air sewing workshop including an old Singer sewing machine powered by the Light Riders batteries. Accompanied by music from the bikes sound system a dozen kids and grown-ups joined in in sewing mushroom and monster shaped yarn throwies for the rest of the afternoon.
Thank you to all the brave and awesome people out there who made it to our last event despite of rain and cold last Friday! The crowd at our first spot got even big enough for the police to check out on us with three vans full of cops and dogs. However, they only helped us remembering that we had planned to move to a second spot anyway – what we did nicely on time.
Here is a preview video (sorry, no sound yet) dokumenting the event and some of the writings of that night. Special thanks to all writers!
This Friday 22nd July we are bringing the Light Rider out to Berlin-Neukölln one more time. It will be the last chance to tag walls in this neighbourhood using blitzTag for the next couple of weeks. If you have missed our previous events along Karl-Marx-Straße make sure you come along this time! There is even two meeting points this time:
from 22:30h, Karl-Marx-Straße 110 (U-Bahn: Karl-Marx-Straße)
from 00:15h, Karl-Marx-Str. 231-235 (S-Bahn Neukölln)
As usual see our Twitter stream that night to stay updated!
Friday night we went out with the Light Rider for the third time to light-bomb walls along Berlin-Neuköllns busy main street Karl-Marx-Straße. Thank you to all of you who came along, stopped by, wrote with us and created new styles!
