To bring his name into harmony, Germany’s 3D-virtuoso DAIM prefers to take graffiti in the »unusual« direction. It seems as if his four letters jump off the walls, explode onto canvases, explore natural environments, and come to life as sculptures. In this printed gallery, DAIM’s versatile techniques and range of artistic motifs become clear: the strange glances of exotic fishes, a gas mask viewed from different angles, complex abstractions of his name, acrylics here, drawings there, all executed with a master’s control of color, light and shadow.

When asked if he departs from traditional graffiti ideas, he answers: »My aim is to show new sides of graffiti art. There will always be writers who paint illegally, but the number of graffiti artists who use new media and styles is steadily increasing. So we have new ideas alongside the old ones.«
