Street Artist: Base 23

It’s not always easy to find information about street artists. Base 23’s page from Street Art Chennai helps us on our way in this case:

Base 23 lives and works in Berlin. For his graffiti, ink drawings and cardboard installations, he draws inspiration from a wide array of sources such as the psychedelic art of the 1960s, underground comics from the 1970s, Japanese robots and robot toy packaging, experiences from his stay in Hongkong, sources from typography as well as traditional fabrics from Tibet and some of the most innovative graffiti styles. Combining all these influences into his unique graphic style, Base23 displays his passion for detail in his large murals as well as in his delicate works on paper and canvas. Vibrant colors imbue his works with expression, intensity, and dynamism.

Check out the crazy cut out he brought to RF16!

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. - Albert Einstein
