Jack Lack

“A wall is not a canvas, it is unique and bond to its physical location. In my opinion one of the most interesting parts of street-art is the awareness and inclusion of the walls’ environment. Just like that, it is possible to recreate the atmosphere of a place by the choice of the right colors, shapes or theme within the mural.”

Stuttgart based street-artist, Jack Lack, has been focusing his attention during the last years on murals of various sizes. Growing up in the local graffiti scene his tools of choices are still cans and rollers. In his works he combines influences from his graffiti roots with more modern aspects of street-art.

Aiming to always enhance his surrounding, he is using well balanced colors to assimilate his art into the environment. His murals often play with depth to create a three-dimensional image from a flat surface.

Multiple excursions and artist stays in different countries allowed Jack to find his way of expressing himself using the “dirty” aspects of color washes with big rollers contrasted by the clean fadings of the can.
