Art Graffiti Video

Slider (Bandits) is multitalented graffiti writer from Dresden, Germany. Once upon a time (late 2013) he arranged an online competition on his Facebook-page where participants were given the task to draw “Slider” outlines. Slider himself would choose the winner and paint a piece to him/her. I naturally took part in the contest – How could I miss an opportunity like this?

Well, I didn’t win.

But I held liking in the lines I drew. What can I say, the word “Slider” does have good letters. And I hate to draw stuff which doesn’t end up being used somehow, somewhere. So later on I asked Slider would he have anything against it if I’d paint a “Slider” piece based on the sketch I sent for the contest. Quite the opposite, he actually gave green light and said he’d be more than interested to see what I come up with.

It took me some time to find a suitable moment for this project, but finally on early December 2014 I found a good spot and had all the colors sorted out for the painting. Considering Slider is a Molotow supported artist, I naturally felt that my version of “Slider” should be painted with Molotow colors as well.

Since more than a year had passed since the competition, I decided not to use the original sketches I drew for the competition. I made new ones instead, which in my opinion turned out even better.

So, here’s the piece, couple of making of shots and a short video above from the overall project.

Thanks again to my wife for editing the video.

This is an attack warning…

F.K.Ü. is a swedish thrash metal band for whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with few times. They’re absolutely cool people! In addition to creating kick ass music, artwork for their last few albums has been mindblowing. Well, the person responsible for ’em is none less than Jeff Zornow, a famous international horror artist and designer. He did magnificent work for F.K.Ü.’s Where Moshers Dwell (2009) album too, but Rise of the Mosh Mongers (2013) album had so cool overall apocalyptic atmosphere that I definitely wanted to paint something larger based on it.
