For years Heiko Zahlmann was active worldwide in urban areas, made concrete walls his image carriers. His graffiti past is evident in his work today. Concrete, color, font and often sitespecific de- tails – the basic elements remain the same. And yet his work has evolved considerably. His spatial wall works move between archi- tecture, sculpture, painting and drawing. Working in situ, they refer to the area and its surrounding. Writing still forms the base for the now three dimensional shapes, but in its highly abstract form re- cognizable only at a second glance. Zahlmann was born in Ham- burg in 1973. After having painted hundreds of graffitis he was included among others in the Guinness Book of World Records. His oeuvre today lies with galleries and institutions, including the City Gallery Prague, the Kunsthalle Krems, the art space Kreuzbe- rg-Berlin, at de Pury & Luxembourg and the Museum for Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg. Some of his murals are permanently instal- led, including the Hotel Atlantic in Hamburg, FBC Frankfurt as well as in several private collections. In addition, works in public spa- ces continue to emerge. Zahlmann lives and works in Hamburg.
