Jens Besser Turns Perpetuity Upright for “Infinite Transportation” in Dresden

Urban artist and urbanist Jens Besser from Dresden, Germany paints the city into his city. An organizer of mural programs and avid bicyclist throughout this historic Saxony capital of a half million, Mr. Besser has a keen interest in all forms of transportation which keeps a city running 24 hours a day, seemingly infinitely.

He used brushes and cans for a new mural he painted on the side of a hotel May 27 – June 3, and in it Jens includes many of these modes inside his illustration-style painting that runs along the looping symbol of infinity: trains, planes, drones, buses, boats, and of course bicycles. A world within his world, closer inspection will reveal details of city life to you if you take a moment – including a rave party under the bridge.

He tells us he took inspiration for certain elements from Adams & Itso, the artist duo known for finding and constructing domestic settings in the margins of urban life – see the #Metatreno hashtag on the side of passing freight. For Jens Besser, urban life is a theater, and on center stage here for this mural called “Der Unendliche Verkehr”, the city is an ongoing play of never-ending movement.
