Donaukanal<br />

The voice of the public, put on the walls,<br />

exaggerated without any borders and<br />

limits, these are graffitis. In <strong>Vienna</strong> there<br />

are many places where you find them.<br />

Some legal, some wildly sprayed but not<br />

legal using public spaces beyond the<br />

provided “Graffiti-Areas”.<br />

I don’t see it as my duty to judge if a<br />

graffiti is legal by means of being on a<br />

legal wall, or what the message is. For<br />

me it’s a documentation of great graffitis<br />

in <strong>Vienna</strong>.<br />

This is the first book about <strong>Vienna</strong>’s<br />

<strong>Streetlife</strong>, since graffitis are permanently<br />

renewed and overpainted, this series of<br />

books might never end.<br />

Most photographs where taken along the<br />

“Donaukanal” - easy found at<br />

Underground station “Schwedenplatz”.<br />

graffitis can be found here: <br />

The faces<br />

Graffiti-faces mostly look<br />

funny or even wild. Here<br />

you’ll find a selection of<br />

“hot” faces directly from the<br />

<strong>Vienna</strong> <strong>Streetlife</strong> scene.


The messages<br />

A graffiti tells a story, thus<br />

transports a message. These<br />

disclosures sometimes<br />

comprise out of single words,<br />

word groups, phrases or<br />

sentences; often they are<br />

displayed as signs, drawings<br />

or symbols.


The stencils<br />

Hit & run - within seconds a<br />

stencil is on the wall, thus<br />

delivering the message. The<br />

diversion of the expressions is<br />

very wide. Here you’ll find<br />

some “straight forward”<br />

stencils, the more<br />

controversial subjects I have<br />

added a separate chapter.


The superheros<br />

From Superman to Mickey<br />

Mouse everyone gets her or<br />

his space in the graffiti scene.<br />

Wild or funny, large or small<br />

you’ll find all your superheroes<br />

in bright colours.


Controversial<br />

Some of the statements found<br />

on the walls are taking up<br />

subjects rather unmannerly,<br />

unmerciful even vicious. There<br />

are no borders, no limits,<br />

religion, politics, every day life<br />

- freedom of speech - and -<br />

freedom of thought - these are<br />

displayed here.


Simply great<br />

Great pieces of very detailed<br />

graffitis are also among the<br />

many artworks at Donaukanal.<br />

Sometimes hidden messages<br />

are found in them, some of<br />

them are simply great and<br />

lovely to look at.
