We often receive info to promote artists’exhibitions. This was the case for Mittemnimwald, so as we loved his artwork, we published a portrait on StreetLove, as well as we asked him for an interview.
Mittenimwald, who originally followed a career in advertising, often draws on classic advertising methods in creating his stencilled paste-ups. He intertwines them with punk and tattoo elements to create a peculiar mix of sex sells and revolutionary practices.
Mittenimwald’s motif selection ranges from a poster campaign about poverty, hunger and mettwurst to metal-tattooed urban beauties and skull-trimmed pop art icons. Commerce meets anarchy, punk meets advertising – Mittenimwald’s urban image world appears to be the artistic antithesis to the guerrilla marketing of the advertising industry.
By means of quotations from the punk scene, Mittenimwald’s works seem to point out that each revolution will absorb its offspring: sell out or realness is a matter of perspective, but in the end it’s all about fun in this great rock’n’roll swindle!
