Today we were lucky to receive in our editorial office the Vitali Kraft work, a german tapeartist’s with a personal style, that you will see it, in her Instagram profile (vitali_kraft) he defined as a “tape artist with a sticky attitude. a strange point of view?️” Cool!
We asked him how he came to the world of the tape art and how he defined his style and this is what she answered:
“Once I saw El Bocho on TV, i liked his work in tape art. Couple of months later in 2011 I started to try it by myself. I like popart, grafitti, constructivism. Portraits is the only thing I ever did and will be doing in my life. Thats how i define my style. First it must be fresh. Second it must be the truth. Third there are no rules allowed. so forget about the first two!”
We like his answers so much and we haven’t wanted to touch anything or reinterpret her. This is Vitali and that’s what he tells us:
“I hate to eat honey and jelly. Not because of the taste but because of the mess. The same with painting, tape is clean and it has sharp edges and much contrast. People love contrast, even if they say they dont, thrust me, they do.”
And to finish, and continue enjoying with you, tell us what is your dream in tape art, Vitali?
“Since I am practicing tape art I want to make a portrait of nike the goddess. I have drawed like 100 scetches therefore but I cant start taping. It has to be big, magnificent-big, wtf-a-mtf-monster tapeart-hiding-the-sun-big. So I better chill before starting. And when ill be ready, I let you know first.”
Didn’t you find he nice, authentic and with a lot of magic? We do, a lot and that’s why today we dedícate him this post and we pass it to the front page of our website.
A pleasure to have meet you and as you say, Vitali, we are looking forward to that “monster of tape”.
