In 2015 two Munich graffiti veterans Patrick Hartl and Christian Hundertmark decided to combine their talents to create a dynamic “painterly dialogue”. They have been experimenting with the fusion of their styles ever since.
Patrick‘s caligraphic writing elements are infused and overlaid with Christian‘s hard-edge floating fields. This creates deep-spatial variations on type, line and colour field. The images are not planned, they happen. Sweet, crunchy and layered; fittingly, the results of this collaboration got the name Layer Cake, a cake with a rich filling. More or less by chance, a new concept emerged; the idea of turning one of the most important rules of graffiti, that of going-over or crossing (not painting over other writers‘ images), upside down.
