On the occasion of All City, a citywide Graffiti and Street Art initiative, launched by the National Museum of Mexican Art, the Goethe-Institut Chicago dedicates the month of January to Street Art in Germany.

As a collector and pop culture enthusiast he has been photographing the anomalies in the streets that would then be labeled Street Art in a concerted effort since 2005.
