Graffiti styles, pieces and murals from the graffiti photo archive of Neck.CNS

May 2, 2006: is the online graffiti photo archive of Neck.CNS. All the pieces and murals that I've taken pictures of since i began painting in 1989 were starting to collect dust in the attic. So I got the idea to open up my graffiti archive and share all these amazing graffiti pieces with you.


February 5, 2006:

The current issue of Graphotism magazine has a 42 page special feature about the ten year anniversary of cnskillz crew, so if you get the chance to flip through it, do it.


27 Addicts: a graffiti / design experiment

January 25, 2006:

27 ADDICTS is the documentation of the project ADDICTED TO GESTALTUNG: an experiment which is aiming for the point of intersection between graffiti and graphic design, as well as graffiti writing and computer-based design.


Boris Schmelter alias DYSET visits 27 like-minded graffiti artists, who are engaged as well with graphic design. The aim is to find innovative and independent ideas that deal with those genres in form and content. There is always one goal but there will be at least two ways to realise it: first the graffiti approach preferably a spray-painted wall after that the topic is dealt with graphically with the help of design tools, like printing, photography and computer design.

The book contains the 27 emerged works as well as infos around the travels and the artists. More over 4 big interviews with Neck, Zedz, Toast and Boe/Viagrafik.

Neck.CNS published

July 17, 2005:

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.


And yes! I am one of the 24 graffiti/design artists featured in this book, along with (among others): CMP, Zedz, 123Klan, Atalier, Esher, Stuka, Typeholics... Can't wait until I have my copy! Yay!

New Ate.1 release: "Delivered"

March 3, 2005:

Ate 1 does it again: His new album "Delivered" is available for download now via ideology netlabel, release no. id.018.

Praise for "Delivered": Once the pool-party is over, our style-lover relocates the bash into his private rooms and gets down lover-style with his second EP on your favourite netlabel. With beats that have the smooth push as well as the sexy bounce, and hooks full to the brim with funky sweetness and sweaty funk, he gets your ass in gear and your groin juiced up.

And if you're already there: his previous release "Lost in Beats" is also still available.
