The everyday life of Stefan Marx in Berlin, in a 300-page volume of drawings.
Stefan Marx releases his new book Berlin Drawings one and a
half year after moving to Germany's Capital. These small scale drawings
were made in different situations—being on public transport,
in clubs, at the TXL airport, walking in different neighborhoods, or just
at his new home. On 300 pages he shares his impressions, thoughts and
observations of his surrounding space, drawing down faces, typographies,
animals, daydreams and quotes of Berlin. Berlin Drawings is
Stefan's 27th publication with Nieves.
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.
