SuperBlast lives and works as a freelance graphic designer in Berlin. He puts his main emphases on graphic art, illustration and typography, in the fields of lifestyle and culture. His focus lies on the interface between art and commerce. Already in early years his artwork got seminally influenced by Hip Hop, Punk Rock, Skateboard and Comic culture. The interest in different international forms of culture as well as divers sub-cultural influences add an exceptional perspective to his works. The Heidelberg-born SuperBlast began his graffiti career in his hometown in the late '80s, with a very own interpretation of the classic New York style. Out of his preference for fonts, forms and colors his current field of work developed naturally. Here he can already show an impressive quantity of works, for example the collaborations with well-known brands, artists and projects, such as Ecko Unltd., Sony Playstation Portable, Nokia Nseries, Völkl Snowboards, Montana Cans, Upper Playground. With WK Interact, Jay1 and Skki he participated in a limited edition t-shirt project by Ecko Function and also got recruited as art director for the Sony Playstation Portable Street campaign in Berlin. His works have been published amongst others in Backjumps, Faesthetics, Lodown.com and the video game Marc Ecko's "Getting Up".
