Qualifying round 4 @ Metropolis cinema

The last qualifying round was stamped from CROMATICS with superlatives. For the first time ever a Secret Wars Tournament was held inside the movie theater METROPOLIS. The four artists have been filmed during the contest and the VJ Kino Kid Cash mixed those short-takes with some fresh visuals and beamed them in real time on the 100 square meter silver screen. The local DJ hero T.Low Rock performed over the cinemas sound system a stunning D'n'B set for the battle. After a short break another premiere happened which was the screening of the documentary "NEXT: a primer on urban painting" from the canadian director Pablo Aravena. The movie was well received by the crowd and lots of people asked us if they could get a copy on DVD and we are happy to announce: "Yes YOU can!" just click here. The crowd and the judges Sebastian Osterhaus and Kay Damme decided to crown Nico Müller and Danny Doom as the winners of the evening. But Mike Okay and PROKSCH didn't had to go home empty handed both got a nice drawing survival kit from the Black Sheep stores. Here are some picture of the night and the TV news about it can be seen on www.secretwarsgermany.de

Secret Wars Germany - On Tour @ "Be Part @ We Art"

Our second On Tour event took us to Austria. So the CROMATICS crew went down to Westendorf and organized two integrative shows on Friday and Saturday. The world famous Ästhetiker crew filmed the whole event. The result was aired on national Austrian and German TV and you can watch it here.

Lilo Krebernik's idea was to integrate the participants and surround their drawings.

The next morning we decided to draw a special Santa Claus image as it was the 6th of December!


RED 136 was taking care of the letters....






Gogo and his mates from the Ästhetiker crew belong to the worlds most famous snow boarders which you see quite often in TV stations like Eurosport and DSF.
