Graffiti, with its individual aesthetics and bohemian values has poured in many parts of visual communication for a long time. An exclusive selection of designers and illustrators, who derive their professional way from their graffiti past, documents this evolution.
»FADINGS« shows their latest works with the involvement of briefing and concept. Thereby it is enabled to relate the approach of design to the final product. At the same time – by examining the existence of graffiti – analogies and mutual influences are presented, which vitally have characterized the handwriting of the graffiti designer and graffiti illustrator.
Artists profiled: CMP, ZEDZ, 123KLAN, ATALIER, TYPEHOLICS, VIAGRAFIK, HELLO, BACKYARD 10, INKUNSTRUCTION, MISTER E., ESHER, NECK, BESOK, SUPERBLAST, FLYING FORTRESS, SAT ONE, STUKA, EROSIE, FINSTA, 56K, GOMES, DIBO, HITNES UND SHAWN-THESIGNER.
