Stairway to Heaven by

Stairway to Heaven by BOND TRULUV Location Mannheim, Germany Photography Alexander Krziwanie Profile @bondtruluv ↑ Time to get down to business. The concentration is plain to see as BOND TRULUV prepares to lift off for higher levels. The SWK organization has been bringing amazing artists from all over the world to paint at its open-air art museum in Mannheim Germany, since 2013. For one of the 2020 murals, they called in the skills of German-born, Leipzig based artist BOND TRULUV. 52 Artist in focus / Interview bond truluv

KKnown to his parents as Jonas Ihlenfeldt, there has not been much that is considered taboo by BOND in the exploration of his artwork. Although graffiti has remained a strong basis on which to explore, even elements like science-fiction and spirituality can be credited as ingredients to his unique style. All of which is fueled even more by the experience gained while using his wellstamped passport. During what little was the European 2020 summer mural season, BOND also found his way to the German city Mannheim to participate in the renowned SWK mural festival. His mission: to create a next-level, jaw-dropping work, which he titled, “Stairway to Heaven”. And that is exactly what he did. His tools for the job were: A select color palette of Montana GOLD low-pressure cans, backed up by a popping array of Montana BLACK high-pressure 400ml spray paint. “Stairway to Heaven”, is a rewarding mural bringing together many elements from many visual sources. Graffiti art, typography, 3D illusions, futuristic realism, and even pixelated arrows that look like they have been lifted straight out of the 90s’, all come together in a beautiful four-story mural. Seamlessly, as no sign of error or hesitation can be seen as BOND proves his comfort in using many of the Montana GOLD and BLACK color ranges. The normally boring apartment block was transformed into an electrifying artwork, that will without a doubt will brighten many days of the residence within it. ↑ Precision is paramount. Even when using the high pressure Montana BLACK with its original fat cap. ↓ Piece by piece, step by step. The plotting of an image that is both analog and digital is no easy feat. That is unless your BOND. Artist in focus / Interview bond truluv 53
