Moby Losangeles Architecture:

ok, graffiti.

i mean, technically it’s attached to a building, so it’s tangentially architecture? right?

well, maybe i just have too broad an idea of what constitutes architecture, as i’ve included pictures of clouds and lizards on this site. but i’m a college drop-out, so what do you expect? an erudite and reasoned consideration of exceptional buildings? or pictures of lizards and graffiti? how about an erudite and reasoned consideration of lizards and graffiti? and buildings, too, on occasion.

i also have a really hard time spelling words with double consonants. like: ‘occasion’.  is that right? it looks like it should have 2 ‘s’s’.

so: graffiti. you have to admit, this graffiti is pretty remarkable. and it defines and establishes the space, far more than the building upon which it’s been painted. the building itself is kind of egregiously unremarkable. it’s only the graffiti that distinguishes the building from the few million other generic buildings in l.a.

i especially like the scary blue baby doll playing bongos. and the scary clown.

COLOURFUL FACES

Germany, Berlin-based Artist Johannes Mundinger (facebook) - "Slowly I got the impression that every medium was appropriate and the most profane materials were just the right thing. They were best paired with banal themes, like in the example of Nose Picking Pictures. Was it about the avoidance of collaboration with a sublime artistic concept with a bloated theoretical superstructure? Was it simply the joy in creating in the moment without having to consider the reception in the world afterwards? Is the artist picking my nose with his index finger, in order to consume the last traces of the grey matter in my head for dessert with delight?" - Oliver Breitenstein, director Berliner Kunstverein

"Hidden in forgotten places across the City, Johannes Mundinger‘s artworks are found mainly by accident. Colourful faces, fantastic figures and wall-paintings melted totally into decaying facades, create anxiety in dark urban corners. Corresponding to Graffiti, the style of the Artist is in a constant dialogue with this form of the street art. The lyrical and painterly finesse of Mundinger‘s works remains in contradition to the roughness and inexactitude of urban art. They are unique compositions. - Petra Wessbecher, Cultural scientist
