1,5 Mio inhabitants of Munich
Art action (2010-today, Metro Munich)
1,5 million people is the population of my hometown Munich. For three years now I am sketching in munichs Metro and have filled about 150 Moleskine sketchbooks with roughly 18000 drawn people. My plan is to catch every citizen of this city on paper. Sketching in the trains is not the easiest task as it shakes all the time and you don’t have more than a few seconds to work. At the beginning I used sunglasses that the people did not know I was sketching them. With the years I got faster and could remember the gestures and facial expressions better. Nowdays I integrate more shortcuts into my sketches what makes it look more naive and spontaneous.
