Daniel Kalinski aka CHAZME 718 + Sepe | Cologne, Germany

Daniel Kalinski aka CHAZME (born in 1980 in Laufen, Switzerland). Is a Polish painter, illustrator and street artist. In 2008, He graduated in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of Technology in Warsaw. Chazme often constructs urbanised structures out of defined, geometrical areas. These dystopian compositions are comments and critiques on urban planning and architecture, which the passers-by are invited to decipher, reflect and maybe even oppose. On a visual level, they are most always compositionally perfectly balanced and reflect the pattern of our modern skyscraper architecture. The artist’s studio work ranges from canvas to collage. Even though his studio work is more figurative, it still emits the strong assemblage aesthetic which is unique to his work. Chazme’s street art pieces can be seen on the walls of many metropolises such as Prague, Berlin, Glasgow, among many others. Lives and works in Warsaw.
