KLUB7 – a 15 year old, Berlin-based, art collective focused on collaborative mural and illustration making. They regularly creates intricate chalk installations on sidewalks in public spaces, drawing on their common vocabulary of hand-painted symbols, characters, and lettering. Their aesthetic is also readily applied on various surfaces. They making murals, customizations and illustrations throughout the world. KLUB7 likes to live in the moment and create collectively their trademark style that combines the diverse backgrounds of the six members. With the resulting large work revealing itself in the process.
The fact that KLUB7 uses chalk, appear to be a tricky consequence on unfriendly experiences. Increased surveillance, fines and numerous campaigns against tagging and other media, including posters, stickers and stencils, have seen a real boom in developed countries. Official advertizing campaigns trying to avoid juristic debates or even punishment with using chalk spray. This should feel and look like rebellion without being subject to criminal charges. KLUB7 is motivated for other reasons in using chalk. They work on walls and the ground. First of all, this simple drawing and painting material is easy available and seems particularly fit for spontaneous artistic interactions. Most often, their activities involve children as well as the adult public in a sort of “jam session” that expands the view of graffiti art to an acceptable public act.
