KEF! comes from a small German western town close to Aachen. He moved to London in 2013 after seeing the vibrant street art scene and feeling that there was a gap for his style. In 2015, he decided to move to Berlin attracted by its alternative lifestyle.
The intricate style of KEF!'s work can be described as abstract graffiti. He is often saying that he is simply obsessed with painting lines. The result of his obsession are tripping but yet harmonius pieces of work. His work is bringing a timeless feeling of serenity to the surrounding, wherever it is placed. As an artist he works instinctively taking inspiration from Pure Land Buddhist teachings and nature. Nature contains for KEF! the utmost beauty on this planet.
Seing the world in a chaotic state he believes that the only positive energy he can bring is his harmonius work which speaks a universal language. KEF! is convinced to reproduce the material world as an artist is blocking the evolution of art. Thus he avoids to paint figurative.
