P. Luetzelschwab

Graffiti art, photography and screen printing combines Patrick Luetzelschwab in his works. In his artistic work, he does not intervene only on the organism of the city by the painting of industrial buildings, bridges and arrows but also in his photographs, which were edited. The artist communicates the recipient its contents on two levels. The first way you can go to Baudrillard described as " tattooing the walls ". He leaves behind traces of his presence with the help of graffiti art. He can win the territory, his city and its surroundings regain symbolic, emphasize its presence through this intervention in public space. At the second level, he emphasizes his individual point of view by editing cityscapes, which he was previously often actively involved. It creates surprising compositions. On his screen printing destroyed courts, post-industrial or industrial landscapes were often contrasted with innocent children figures. This compound shows more intense the special character of these areas. Also, the apparent idyll on the images from the series " Lilly and Marie" was broken by industrial elements such as surveillance cameras or nuclear power station. Both, his graffiti work as well as the compositions of his photos can be seen as an attempt to overcome the alienation in post-industrial urban areas.
