PICHIAVO for METROPOLINK

PICHIAVO for METROPOLINK At Heidelberg Central Station Location Heidelberg, Germany Photography Schreiber & Pötter Profile @ pichiavo, @metropolinkurbanartfestival The chances of residents, tourists, and commuters missing their trains at Heidelberg’s Central Station in Germany has just increased. Not because of trackwork, strikes, or god forbid it…vandalism! The reason is the amazing new head-turning mural by Spanish street art duo, PichiAvo. → It doesn’t get any better. A café right under your piece for those hard earned coffee breaks. 56 Production Pichiavo for Metropolink

↖ The weapons of choice, Montana BLACK, and GOLD cans lay at the ready as the artists prepare their materials. ← The calm, before the storm, before the calm again. One of the many layers of what becomes a tapestry of graffiti iconography. ↑ A very large, blank, white, indoor space ready to go. Right in the middle of Heidelberg’s main station. → Up-close and personal. Not possible for most viewers considering the elevated nature of the work. As part of the METROPOLINK festival that takes part in the region of Heidelberg, the mural has found its new home on a large scale in the main terminal building of the station. A meeting point, food stop, and transport hub all in one, the station has now become home to a contemporary mix of graffiti, classical sculpture and street art. Starting with layers of graffiti fodder, their image forms as a transparent eagle, and a Romanesque statue figure emerge over the backdrop of vibrant, Montana BLACK and GOLD fueled graffiti mark-making. A meeting point, food stop, and transport hub all in one, the station has now become home to a contemporary mix of graffiti, classical sculpture and street art. The duo from Valencia Spain, formed in 2007 after meeting in the graffiti scene and later studying Fine Art and Design together. Pichi born in 1977 and Avo born in 1985 abandoned the idea of individualism for a path of art-making that works best in pairs or more. Production Pichiavo for Metropolink 57
