[Forest Gum – A journey through the world of different materials]]
The two nature boys Frederic Sontag und Mr. Gum (Macozy Ziegler), who employ colors like others use oxygen to breath, take us on a journey through a world of natural fibres and chewing gum. From harmonious art works to explosive matter and light sculptures, the two artists illuminate everything from new perspectives.
Mr. Gum discovered the spray can for himself in 1988, and since then hasn’t put it down.. Alongside his career as graphic designer and post-producer in the on-air area, he was an active video artist and driving force behind the first Munich graffiti video released in 1996. In 1998 he designed numerous stage sets for different film productions. From 1999 to 2013 he was the creative mind behind the street label “Fuckuall” from Munich.
Frederic Sontag, born in Ludwigsburg in 1988, began his sprayer career at the tender age of 14. Five years later he turned his hobby into a career and trained as a stage painter. The skill here is to transfer a visual conception to a large format canvas, while maintaining the scale. His works can be seen within the context of a range of exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
