Our design hand painted on the Indbiss food truck. You might know that the most famous food in Berlin is the “Currywurst”, a sausage with curry ketchup every Berlin tourist tries. So when Chayatan Singh approached us, we immediately loved the concept of an Indian guy selling the “Original Indian Currywurst” in Berlin. It takes some balls to do that. And some patience to hand paint an entire food truck.

Mural design for childrens intensive care and maternity ward at the state hospital in Feldkirch: a place where joy and suffering are very close to each other, often only a few minutes apart.

Without getting too much into detail why, some projects start out very nice, you have a concept that everyone agrees on, its clear, understandable, it bridges from the artists to the audience, explains itself, looks good and has this eye catching quality. And then someone comes along and starts to cut, first a little, than more and more like a rabid barber whose drugs start to kick in while he’s cutting.

Yes, you do the maths, thats what happened to this project. Still looking nice but why a triangle? Why the brackets? There are brackets? Exactly! Thats what we refer to …
