Bond truluv Location Leipzig, Germany Photography Jordan Katz Profile @bondtruluv Montana Cans visits BOND TRULUV Entering the world of graffiti augmentation BOND TRULUV uses travel as one of his greatest sources of inspiration. Walking paths he has never gone before translates to his creative goal of creating artwork that has never been seen or done before. In this article, we explore the world of BOND TRULUV from the comfort of his studio and watch as this dynamic artist creates his augmented reality artwork, with his trademark graffiti touch. 46 Artist in focus / Interview bond truluv

There have been many references to the Germanborn artist BOND TRULUV throughout the Montana media platforms. Without a doubt, his unique artworks have caught not only our eye but also that of an international audience. Going beyond your classic graffiti style writing, BOND’s commitment to finding new ways to express his artwork and letters has taken him down a unique path. Born in 1981, since the 2000s BOND’s roots in graffiti have guided him in a direction where graffiti meets fine art, stopping in the digital world and graphic design along the way. With a neverending thirst for travel, BOND’s adventures have not only taken him around the world for education and experience, but they have also enabled him to leave behind an international trail of artworks. He has exhibited and created murals all over Europe, Africa and Asia, including countries like India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Myanmar. His constant experimentation of the digital world, long exposure photography, installations, and video mapping has resulted in him being the first graffiti artist to embed augmented reality into his artworks. ↑ Layer upon layer, there is no easy way to get to perfection except with patience and passion. ↓ From the outside looking in. The space where BOND’s studio work comes to life. To get a closer look at how BOND creates artworks on small scale, we were lucky enough to have a studio visit with this multi-media creator. Not only was his informed ease of use with Montana spray products such as Montana GOLD, BLACK, MARBLE, and VARNISH impressive, his instinctive incorporation of drawing by way of the ACRYLIC refills and Montana EMPTY markers, was equally as natural. Where BOND takes his art to a new level is his multi-media initiatives. His constant experimentation of the digital world, long exposure photography, installations, and video mapping has resulted in him being the first graffiti artist to embed augmented reality into his artworks. This extends both the visual content but also builds on digital transformations that are also site-specific. Constantly pushing the boundaries of contemporary urban art has made him a leader in his respective fields. On one hand, he has earned and maintained the respect of his peers in the hands-on analog world of graffiti writing, while on the other, creating a whole new way of making contemporary art that is compelling even for the ‘outsider’. Given that there are few innovators in this field such as BOND, while at his studio, we took the opportunity to ask him a few questions to hear his own perspectives on his work. This is what he had to say… Artist in focus / Interview bond truluv 47
