“Size S” by Philip Wallisfurth on view in November only!
- UN MUSEUM EVENT 2022
- November 4, 2022
During his performance at the Long Night of Museums, Philip Wallisfurth (SENOR SCHNU) created an abstract moss graffiti titled “Size S” in front of the Production Office, Bülowstr. 96, near URBAN NATION Museum. It is still there to see until the end of November.
“Urban art is the biggest art movement on the planet. It can be found just about everywhere in a wide variety of forms. This art form is so popular that artists can create ever more extraordinary and larger works. But what’s actually behind it?” writes Philip Wallisfurth.
With “Size S”, he addresses the issue of sustainability in the field of urban art. By using moss and spray cans, he is also concerned here with the dialogue between different materials and techniques. Environmental issues are, among others, also questions that the works of 1UP and Jeff Hong deal with in the first chapter “We need to talk” in the exhibition TALKING…& OTHER BANANA SKINS.
Together with Dave The Chimp, Mina, Humble Writerz and Matt Jones, Philip Wallisfurth designed the then facade of the URBAN NATION Museum in 2020. Originally from Aachen, he now lives and works in Berlin. His work covers a broad spectrum from classic paste-ups to moss graffiti, sculptures and paintings on canvas. Currently he is intensively engaged with anamorphoses; and so “Size S” is also provided with an optical illusion,…
…which works particularly well in front of a screen: No, the work is not being uploaded right now! The circle symbol was sprayed with stencils: “This artwork is meant to make you think,” says Philip Wallisfurth.
