CASE MACLAIM

Case Maclaim is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading photorealistic aerosol authors.
Each of his works is a unique piece of art and can be discovered throughout the world.
Painting both murals and on canvas, Case holds one of the most extraordinary techniques known within urban art.

His images are based on the re-presentation of body shapes and photo-realistic portraits.
He focuses on the body which he abstracts from its human origin to make way for narrative, monstrous, animalistic or mythic elements. The usual ideal of beauty is replaced by bizarre-controversial characteristics, which are vexing but simultaneously fascinating.
Also the world of emotions is traced perpetually: uncertainty, melancholy and the constant fight of being a human are broached as the issue. The figurative subjects impress by their perfect execution and their excellent mixture of pictorial pureness and high narrative value.

Andreas Von Chrzanowski aka Case Maclaim was born in 1979 and grew up in East Germany, now based in Frankfurt.
