Case [ GERMANY ]all artists
Known for his photorealistic...
graffiti, Case started developing his technique in 1995 when he began painting with spray cans. The German born and raised artist is a founding member of the graffiti crew Ma’claim, which he founded along with fellow artists Akut and Rusk in 1999. The group is considered pioneers of photorealistic art in the graffiti scene. In 2008, he started doing solo projects. His work most often depicts people and body features particularly hands, which he has said are his favorite form to paint “there is nothing more powerful and universal than hands. Drawing hands is a way to express words without using words.”
For Wynwood Walls’ 2014 program the Art of Collaboration, Case was tapped to paint both a mural outside the walls and one for the Wynwood Doors, both of which feature his iconic hands.
