This wonderful wall is the work of German artist Tobias Kröger also known as TOBE and is a reflection of his current work which deals with the idea of human self-understanding in a technologized everyday life.
His fictional portraits, composed of data fragments and machine parts, give form to this concern about what it means to be human in a digital world making use of traditional techniques like classical painting in oil or acrylic, creating according to the artist “an exciting discussion regarding present and past, masses and individuals , communication and isolation” all reflected in the mural here presented.
The mural was painted in occasion of “Face Off’, Kröger’s first solo exhibition for which he created over 40 new works featuring cubist face structures, opaque molded masks that remind you of traditional cubist painting, mixing traditional painting with the graphic shapes of Urban Art.
