A new, stunning artwork is the result of CityLeaks’ cooperation with IG Metall. Daiker of Cologne artist duo Debug Visuals, whose draft won an internationally announced competition, finished his blazing mural on the facade of IGM education centre in Sprockhövel in late October. Fly, robin, fly!

CityLeaks Interacting Day
Performances
All over Cologne
13.9.2013

For one day professional as well as amateur dancers, actors/actresses and performance artists transformed the city of Cologne into a large stage for contemporary art. The artists’ choreographies interfered with the city’s everyday activities and thus created moments of confusion, joy and interaction. Check out the video for some impressions of that perfectly inspiring day!

Sten Lex at CityLeaks 2013
Mural Painting
Hospeltstraße 28

Italian street artists Sten and Lex have created a fascinating mural above a yard in Ehrenfeld’s Hospeltstraße! By way of their stencil poster technique the artist duo has pasted and carved a dazzling relief of abstracted lines and circles onto a formerly bleak house wall. The clip offers an insight into their complex working process. Check it out!

Hendrik ‘ecb’ Beikirch at CityLeaks 2013
Mural Painting
Dasselstraße 31

Think big! Hendrik ‘ecb’ Beikirch has finished his massive wall at Dasselstraße! As with his mural at Bismarckstraße he leaves us with the deeply melancholic portrait of an old man. We are simply fascinated by the mural’s emotional intensity. Big thanks to Hendrik! Now come around and have a look yourself!

ARYZ at CityLeaks 2013
Mural Painting
Severinswall 54

Despite his young age Catalonian artist ARYZ already counts among the protagonists on the international urban art scene. Marked by an intensive colourfulness and compositional brilliance, his large-scale murals are of a hypnotic power. In August he scared us like hell with his giant skeleton now peering down from a huge wall in Cologne’s Südstadt! Dare to have a look yourself…

GAIS at CityLeaks 2013
Mural Painting
Ubierring 61a

Brazilian street art wizard GAIS is famed for his colourful abstractions. Already in August he transformed a large wall at Ubierring into an hypnotic mosaic of abstract forms and vibrant colours. We’re stunned! Muito obrigado no GAIS!

Aya Tarek

Last but not least, Egyptian artist Aya Tarek completed her mural on 1st October! Her vibrantly coloured wall now brightens up Cologne’s Follerstraße. Alongside the gaudy parrots, Aya’s androgynous youth seems to dream hermself away into a tropical paradise. We’re pleased to join in! Thanks so much, Aya! All the best!

Italian street artists Sten and Lex have created a fascinating mural above a yard in Ehrenfeld’s Hospeltstraße! By way of their stencil poster technique the artist duo has pasted and carved a dazzling relief of abstracted lines and circles onto a formerly bleak house wall. With several stripes half ripped off and now dangling in the wind Sten Lex have endowed us with a most melancholic monument to transcience. Mille grazie, amici!


Zezão
Murals for CityLeaks 2013
Hansemannstraße 13
Vogelsanger Straße 280a

Brazilian artist Zezão has placed his radiant blue water ribbon on a large wall in Ehrenfeld’s Hansemannstraße. And of course, the blue ribbon has also found its way to a sewer cover on a yard in Vogelsanger Straße. Come by and discover! We’re enchanted! Muito obrigado no Zezão!

Liebigstraße 70

MaJo Brothers and Klaus Klinger have finished their mural in Ehrenfeld’s Liebigstraße! In our digital age the stance of the Düsseldorf muralists is crystal clear: A world made up of zeros and ones can only generate its own flaws. In the end, there seems to be only one way out: Restart! Immediately! Thanks to Klaus and Joe for debugging!


Low Bros

Trierer Straße 61

Brothers Florin and Christoph Schmidt had already acquired some renown as graffiti artists Nerd and Qbrk before forming the duo Low Bros. Animals of a strikingly human nature are central to their work. For CityLeaks 2013 Low Bros painted a huge wall at Barbarossaplatz!

Already in May 2013 New York-based artist Maya Hayuk turned the bleak facade of a car park near Neumarkt into an ecstatic carnival of vibrant colours. We’re enchanted! Thank you so much, Maya!
