New York drawings.
This Sounds a bit Like Goodbye is part
of Stefan Marx' travel drawing publications. This time New York City was
Stefan's host for a longer period of time in 2012. The book shows
different portraits, shop sceneries, strange impressions and human
individuals on 156 pages. The drawings were made in different situations,
sometimes only on small papers in the subway or in short seconds on
a traffic light. The book comes in a classic paperback size and is his
most comprehensive travel drawing publication to date.
Artist and designer Stefan Marx (born 1979 in Schwalmstadt, lives and works in Berlin) is an actor of the skateboard scene, whose drawings usually adorn productions of his label "The Lousy Livincompany". He also collaborated with Playhouse Records, as well as with famous skateboard brands.
An expression of everyday's experience with a critical distance, his black and white drawings, overpainted flyers and enigmatic slogans are anchored in street culture but address our cultural awareness.
During the past years, Marx' art travelled around Europe in several occasions and galleries (like "“The Side Effects of Urethane"), as well as being reproduced in various magazines and publications like The Art of Rebellion and Street Logos.
