Tape, spray-paint and abandoned walls, that’s what the Amsterdam-based urban art duo Graphic Surgery needs to create these fantastic, architectural-inspired, geometrical graffiti artworks. In the last month they were really busy, travelling through Europe and painting new things.
I got in touch with their rather interesting wall-paintings some month ago and wanted to get more info about the artists, because I haven’t heard something about them before. Fortunately, Graffuturism did that nice interview with Graphic Surgery earlier this year, which gave me some insights into the thought of Erris Huigens and Gysbert Zijlstra.
Walls are one of many surfaces we love to apply our work to. Our work is strongly influenced by city elements. The city is mostly built up out of walls, so it is simply a perfect surface to apply it to. One could say our work belongs to walls. We actually started painting on walls because we lacked a certain amount of studio space, wanted to work big and love to paint in public space/ the streets. (Graphic Surgery)
By the way, when Graphic Surgery is not out and about to spray-paint some new abandoned murals, they work as EHGZ in a design studio…For more info about Graphic Surgery visit their website or their photo-stream on Flickr!
