Case Maclaim is a German urban artist from Frankfurt.
Case Maclaim, aka Andreas von Chrzanowski, has been a photorealism pioneer for over two decades, primarily using the medium of spray paint to embrace the power of movement through the universality of hands. “Power” and “movement” have individually played key roles in the backbone of his German roots, inspiring him to communicate his strong messages of unity and power by overlaying hands. The overlaying “movement” is not just the physical body movement but political movement, generally being left without a particular context in which the viewer is left to visualize the remaining story and/or emotion, relative to their current situations.
Having travelled to over 40 countries, Case has literally left his fingerprints in each, continually leaving bits and pieces of a language understood by all – after all a hand gesture can tell a thousand words.
