Originally born and raised in Germany in 1981, Bond TruLuv became involved with graffiti-writing at the beginning of this millennium. Since then he has eagerly committed himself to examining new ways of composing letters and calligraphic ways of expression, as well as modes of fine arts and graphic design. His permanent longing for transformation and variation in terms of material and style is cultivated through extensive travelling as well as the search for environments and sceneries that inspire new pieces interactively.
The artistic map of Bond TruLuv features murals and exhibitions all over Europe, Africa and especially Asia (India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, etc.). There he found social life and culture happening extensively on the streets, offering a public forum where his graffiti would be appreciated by the locals and would adopt the various dominating atmospheres and emotions. At the same time, he is constantly experimenting with different materials such as canvas, video and installations. The recently discovered tool of long-exposure photography combined with additional light-sources (“light-writing“) enabled him to reach a new level of Graffiti-Art, creating spectacularly vivid images, morphing reality and dimensions within the letters and the locations they are applied in.
After receiving his MA in Anthropology in 2010 and participating in the “Darmasiswa” scholarship at the University of Arts (ISI) in Yogjakarta, Indonesia he works as an independent artist, travelling all over the world from wall to wall.
