Born in 1989 - Germany
KEF! is a young artist born in 1989, he is originally from Übach-Palenberg, Germany.
He moved to London in 2013 after seeing the booming of street art in this city and hoping that there was a place for his style. In 2015, he moved to Berlin.
KEF!'s name means 'scar' which is how he perceives painting on walls, according to him street art is an indelible mark left by an artist. This is where his name comes from, making reference to a scar.
He describes his style as abstract graffiti and he gives special attention to the balance and harmony of the patterns and compositions he creates.
For KEF! the most important facet of his work is that people enjoy looking at it."People should always try to feel and not think about my compositions" says KEF!.
As an artist he works instinctively and gets his inspiration from meditation and nature. Creating for him is a sort of meditation.The most important is that the viewer indulges in the multitude of lines and lets himself be transported until finding a sense of well-being and positive energy.
KEF!'s work has evolved over the years. He is known for his compositions, specially for his great mural frescoes and his interior redesigning of the London, Berlin, Stuttgart and Hong Kong Urban Outfitters stores.
