Polish artists Daniel Kalinski aka Chazme and Michał Wręga also known as Sepe were recently in Bielefeld, Germany invited to take part of the Hoch2wei event for which they painted this amazing mural at Bielefeld University.
Partners in crime for a while now Chazme and Sepe create a magnificent mural that under the title of “Unreachables” depicting apparently desperate citizens trying to reach skyscraper high ships docked far away from the harbour, unreachable in many ways. The constructivist style of the ships and the unrest visible in the scene’s foreground seems to highlight this fact.
Mixing Chazme’s interest for technology and architecture that give shape to urban-like structures and Sepe’s quasi-mannerist figures, defined by delicate but deliberate brush strokes the artists give form to a haunting composition where human lives, people, seem to be confronted with the massive and cold figures of unreachable ships, maybe a representation of power? Anyhow the expressions of each character seem to tell a story that hardly goes unnoticed.
