“Get Well Daniel” Raises Funds for Innovative DTANGO aka COST88 – Online and in Berlin

Innovative artist in the public sphere, Daniel Weissbach aka DTAGNO aka COST88 has charted new territory many times with his hand made experimentation that makes graffiti and street art search themselves for new definitions.

Creating new tools and techniques for applying the traditional aerosol spray to the wall, he inspired many imitators and redefines the artists’ relationship to art in public space. Rooted in graffiti culture but scaling a number of disciplines, he has trail-blazed his own idiosyncratic routes and aesthetics full of humor, discovery, and contradiction for more than two decades at work, and in the process he’s created new paths for us to explore.

Beginning next week with a special showcase of works by admiring peers in the graffiti/ Street Art/ Urban Art/ public art Berlin family, a large number of works will be auctioned to benefit the 44-year old artist as he lives with a medical diagnosis that is a great challenge. Since 2016 he has faced the challenge bravely and will need to have greater care as time moves forward, so the community is reaching out to help.

Following on the heels of a successful campaign on GoFundme last month, this multi-stage online auction of works donated by many local and international artists will assist him and his family during this time, so that he can spend it  “in his familiar surroundings, at home, with his 8-year-old daughter and with us,” says artist Christian Hundertmark in his GoFundme essay.

A Monster Mash on the Streets

“I have never seen a greater monster or miracle in the world than myself.”

Michel Eyquem, seigneur de Montaigne (1533–1592)

Seeing a monster on the street can make you pick up your pace a little.

Especially if it is a dark windy autumn night and the block you are on has no working street light. And if the  leaves and garbage and random pieces of plastic are swirling in the air and clattering into cluttered little piles in the corners of doorways. Here’s an eclectic collection of spooks and skeletons and wild-eyed beasts created by today’s Street Artists and shot by photographer Jaime Rojo that may make your march along the footpath just a little more mysterious and monstrous as the wind picks up and you rush to your home for safety.

Enomeks “Stenciled Rat = Big Deal” in San Diego, CA (photo © Enomeks)

“There were a few things that went into creating this photo and I will try to sum up my meanings and reasoning behind it.

I first off wanted to capture the sort of sideshow spectacle that goes along with a rat being stenciled on a building. Blek Le Rat probably would have been a lot more famous had the full boom of internet media been around during his stencil height.

Most people these days know of a stenciled rat as being a Banksy thing, that too could be blamed on the media in general.  I too am a fan of Banksy’s work, back before you had to either stand in a line to get a print or pray you win the lottery that goes into acquiring one these days.  The reason for all the people taking pictures is the hype that surrounds his pieces, most of these “photographers” would not even look twice at other graffiti that could accompany the wall, that could very well be a known graffiti legend.  I tend to look at some of the photographers taking shots to say they have actually seen a piece in person and the other half are going to upload photos to create a new set of coffee mugs and mouse pads to be sold on Ebay.  The “Guess Who?” on the wall was a comment on various headlines and such you constantly see.  For every 10 articles of “OMG new Banksy on wall in such and such”, turns out only about 1 is real.  Almost anything stenciled on a wall these days will have some amateur journalist drumming up web hits by just putting Banksy’s name in a title.  That is my personal opinion and reason for the piece.” ~ Enomeks
