Along with stencil, posters, sculpture, and installation, graffiti is a widely used form of visual communication in the rich and unique context of public space. As wild, anarchic and cutting-edge as graffiti might appear, graffiti writing has its background in clearly defined ways to deal with type. Over decades, these became more and more stylistically diverse. The main invention of graffiti writing is the unique way to distort and invent new letters and apply them to various surfaces and contexts.

Course leader

At the age of 12, Felix Gephart got to know graffiti through his older brother Matthias, with whom he has painted most of his walls till today. Focusing on wild-style pieces for 14 years, he moved on to immerse himself in figurative drawing.
