“Fenster Zum Hof”- giving something back to Mannheim
Using the limited palette of colors inspired by the surrounding buildings, CZOLK used Montana GOLD and Montana BLACK can colors that gave a small nod of respect to the local people. the very people playing, going to the Mosque or church or on their way to the park. Some just cruising around by foot to get some fresh air and the last rays of the setting sun. Take a moment and enjoy the mural here.
“Fenster Zum Hof” is also the name of the the first and only album of the German hip hop group, “The Stieber Twins“. The album released in the late 90’s is now considered a classic for German hip hop heritage and was born only 20 minutes away in the neighboring city of Heidelberg. The album, a sound track to Czolk’s youth, was also a key part in the culture of German hip hop which plays a major role in his art, the culture of Mannheim and the streets of its surrounds.
