LAPIZ – ONE LOVE 2022-04-01

LAPIZ – ONE LOVE

LAPIZ artist is returning with a recreation of an older wall painting highlighting Putin’s narcissism and homophobia. ONE LOVE was first painted at a festival in Lemwerder in 2018. Over 3 m tall, a bright coloured Vladimir Putin was kissing himself. During that time the FIFA world Cup took place in Russia and the intention was to highlight Putin’s narcissism and homophobia. Four years later, in February 2022, this motive of course is very up to date.

”When I pitched the idea to Loomit, he immediately understood that it needed to be seen. And just like that he gave away part of his most prized wall in Munich’s Werksviertel, a piece he painted back in 1999. Over the next couple of days I recreated ONE LOVE, so here is again the homophobic narcissist loving no one else but himself.”


About LAPIZ:

LAPIZ is currently living in Germany but taught himself to paint on the streets of Dunedin (New Zealand). In Africa he worked on HIV but the shocking social contrasts were processed via public interventions. While living in Buenos Aires (Argentina) he started painting huge technical stencils. In his sophisticated works he deals with current socio-critical and political issues.
