EGS – Writing Stories with Three Letters
inkl. 5% MwSt. zzgl. Versandkosten
Egs’ universe is grounded in the use of the three letters in his name . Whether it’s his dynamic ink drawings, the slower but even more hard-to-control media of glass or a classic graffiti painting, those three letters are the fundament of his art and the stories he tells.
While showing works in museums and galleries internationally, EGS still keeps painting graffiti on the streets around the world. He has become an important figure in the international graffiti community. Both for the quality of his work, but also for an intellectual vibe that goes like a red thread through all of his work, strengthen their output as well as being an open, curious and generous person, doing pieces in the most diverse parts of the world with great respect for the context.
In this book, Egs and graffiti-archivist and author Tobias Barenthin Lindblad discuss Egs’ practice in both studio and in the streets. Their conversation covers topics directly connected to the artwork that is depicted in the book, but also about the deeper meanings and driving forces of being an artist. How does one bring the energy from painting in the street into a studio? How can you bring the uncertainity in making glass into painting graffiti in the street? How do a painting in an abandoned Finnish factory and a glass sculpture in a gallery communicate? Is an artist measured by a single art work or by his or her body of work? And last but not least: can a word without meaning have a message? Writing Stories with Three Letters goes deep into the art, creativity and theories of one of the most exciting contemporary artists from Scandinavia.

About the book
Vienna is transforming fast and positioning itself as one of the most interesting cities for street art in Europe. Renowned graffiti painters no longer pass around the Austrian capital – they leave their artworks here visible for everybody walking the 23 districts. Murals have been around forever, but in the past couple of years, street artists have begun to work on large scale surfaces more and more, often with permission and with the help of ladders, cranes and lifts. The results are artworks in heights barely reached before and the freedom to take more time to finish, which in turn leads to detailed artworks that interact with architecture and structures. This phenomenon is now also well-established in Vienna thanks to the many initiatives, galleries, agencies and curators that make our downtown spaces more vibrant, colourful and beautiful. Vienna is full of artworks both from local and international artists, offers plenty of legal space to paint on and local governments also support this art form more and more. There are lots of different manifestations of public art and street art but this guide focuses on murals as there is currently an incredible dynamic in this art form in Vienna. This guide’s ambition is neither to be complete nor finished; it is rather a documentation of some selected artworks as found in early summer of 2017 which Vienna Murals thinks you should take a closer look at when walking the streets of this city. Every mural featured in this guide is numbered and includes artist and curator info, the year of painting (if known), as well as the location address and a marker on a map.

Z6000 ist der technische Name für die „blauen Züge“ am Bahnhof Saint Lazare in Paris.
Als sie 1976 in Betrieb genommen wurden, testete die SNCF sie auf der Roissy-Linie, die dann zur RER-Linie B Nord wird. Danach waren sie ausschließlich auf den Linien der westlichen Vororte vom Bahnhof Gare Saint Lazare unterwegs: Versailles linkes Ufer / Saint-Nom-la-Breteche / St. Cloud / La Défense / Bécon-les-Bruyères / Maison-Laffitte / Cergy.
Das Fotobuch von RAP zeigt eine Auswahl an Panels aus den Jahren 1992 bis 1996.
