Artist in Residence: BOND TRULUV
Since 2006, the Colab Gallery has been working exclusively with style-defining, international artists from the field of graffiti and urban art. In the recurring rhythm of two group exhibitions per year, over 200 artists have since accepted the invitation to Weil am Rhein. This year, Colab Gallery will add a new element to its exhibition format and has created a residency program for artists.
The aim of this program is to offer selected artists the opportunity to work without distraction and without economic risk. For this purpose we provide a spacious room in the Colab Gallery and a well-rehearsed team. For 14 days in February this space will be studio, workshop and laboratory at the same time. A safe place where the artist can focus on his or her own artistic quality and ability. In this way we can make it possible for our visitors to experience what would otherwise remain inaccessible to the public during the preparation of the exhibition.
Colab Gallery is very pleased to have BOND TRULUV, an extraordinary artist, as Artist in Residence.Born and raised in Germany in 1981, Bond Truluv started writing graffiti at the beginning of this millennium.Since then he has been tirelessly exploring new forms of letter composition and calligraphic expression, but also with forms of visual art and graphic design. He cultivates his constant yearning for transformation and variation in terms of material and style through extensive travel.
A true multimedia artist, BOND TRULUV is constantly experimenting with different materials such as canvas, installations, video mapping and long-term photography. Recently, he has been focusing on new technologies and was the first graffiti artist to incorporate augmented reality (AR) animations into his works.Time and again, he manages to push the boundaries of contemporary urban art further, creating spectacularly vivid images and changing the places to change the places where they are placed.
An opening event is scheduled for Feb. 25, 2023, when the, works created in the gallery will be presented to the public. These works will then be shown for four weeks, until 25.03.2023
