"This character is Krakenheinz, this was a character from the last big murla that I created in Berlin. I did this illustration the first day here in Detroit." - HRVB
Hailing from throughout Germany and Austria, we are excited to welcome the collective internationally known as The Weird to 1xRUN as they join us for their Detroit group show! Each member of the international mural and illustration collective -- CONE, DXTR, FRAU ISA, HRVB, LOW BROS, NYCHOS, LOOK, VIDAM and ROOKIE -- focus their work on high quality character design created in unique yet recognizable styles. In addition to street art and graffiti murals, they work as gallery artists, professors, graphic designers, illustrators and lecturers throughout Europe.
Showcasing a sharp, vibrant and aggressive palette with both gallery and street work, the collective has painted murals throughout the world and have worked for high profile clients spanning Converse to Red Bull. Their first group show in Berlin in 2012 was hailed a huge success and the collective has been featured in publications throughout the US and Europe including Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose and Amateur Magazine.
