Work by Mittenimwald:

Mittenimwald was born in Northern Germany. The birth year as well as his real name remains mystery for the public as he chose not to reveal too much of himself. As for his artistic presentation, there is a rational explanation for this tongue breaking name. At one moment of his life, this artist found himself without a job and any thought of what he might to next. So he stood “in the middle of the forest and couldn’t find his way”. Middle of the forest, in German translation is: “mitten im wald”.
He has been involved in street art since 2006 when he began with stickers. He prefers not to be related to any crew as he rather works alone as a full-time artist.
For a long time he has worked in advertising agencies and he learnt there to influence people. His inspirations are coming from aggressive advertising, provocation and punk.
mittenimwald is not working on the street that much. He prefers working in a small garage, on canvas and other supports. His define his work as not art but simply craftsmanship and graphic expertise. To work, he uses a knife, spray-cans, rolls of paper and wood to create extremely detailed, hand cut stencils that he places on ground coated wood panels. Next step is to carefully apply aerosol cans paint.
The results are skillfully applied, multilayered stencils so fine that they look just like they are airbrushed. When it comes to choosing the theme for his artworks, mittenimwald is usually depicting people and text. His imagery varies between beautiful women, revolutionaries, pop-icons and dictators with messages such as “fuck art”, “I love $$$”, “enjoy capitalism” and the always reoccurring “vandalism”, meant to prompt critical self-reflection. By subverting the advertising-colored messages he is balancing his art through the references to punk and revolutionary symbolism.
