Electricity, Water and Connection

3 Steps for creating a mural that represents the company


I was honored to create a celebrational mural for the 130 year jubilee of the Stadtwerke Kufstein. They serve the residents of Kufstein with water and electricity thus creating easier and more comfy life for the people since.

Here are the steps to how we came up with the idea of the motive:

1 | Finding the vision


They told me their story and their values as a company. The keywords we have found are electricity, water and connection. With that I began to work and found a way to deliver the message through my artistic handwriting.



2 | Translating the idea of electricity, water and connection into my artistic language


Water was an easy task as fluidity and flow are a main focus of my art style, as well as my beloved and calm blueish color palette. But how to handle the electric part then? Electricity I perceive as very dynamic as well but more edgy than a water substance. If you think of a lightning stroke, it draws kind of these zig zag lines. So why not creating a big zoom on these lines to create dimension? That's what I did. In a fluorescent "chantier - yellow" (as a beloved friend would call it) I created these electric strokes as a huge dynamic narrative going broader than the surface of the wall.


A persona was added that can be read as either feminine or masculine or both, depending on the eyes of the observer. Two hands are seen, one holding the logo of Stadtwerke Kufstein, the other one going with the head in a right-warded motion creating a person who is in the flow with the whole identity of energy and connectivity.


The black lines emerging from the logo going around the builing to further enhance the impact Stadtwerke Kufstein has on the city.

3 | Realisation phase - 5 days for appyling it on the building


With the ready made plan I then came to Kufstein to paint. It took 5 days to paint the 4 walls of the building.

Day 1 the doodle grid and the sketch were applied to the wall.


Day 2 and 3 the color comes to action, filling every spot with the right tones.


Day 4 and 5 all the magic happens, as the fresco finally comes to life with details and final renderings.

4 | The result


The corporate vision of Stadtwerke Kufstein now solidified into a dynamic, electric and flowing work of art in public space that everyone can enjoy. To have something playful for the eye is proved to elevate the overall spiritual energy of the people and so to say the Stadtwerke now can claim to have unlocked even another form of connection through my handwriting.
