Christian Hundertmark

*1974, is an artist and creative/art director based in Munich, Germany. His very first sketches “Anarchy” & “Bat Man“ in 1989 were the ignition for a career as an active graffiti writer for more than ten years. Later on, in 1999 after having just finished his graphic design studies, Christian got into street art and was one of the pioneers of this then still young movement in Germany.

During that time he also got introduced into the international urban art scene and realized many projects in London, Barcelona, Madrid and Milan. Since then Christian keeps himself busy working on various art projects and exhibitions. His works were released in numerous publications and exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide.

Christian’s works are best described as compositions of hard egded floating layers with elements, which play with the momentum of the masked and balance between calm and tension. They often show traces of both his graffiti and graphic design background; the painted shapes are influenced by transitions of skateparks, which origins from his youth and present as an avid BMX rider and skateboarder in the 80’s.
Christian also runs the graphic design bureau C100 Studio and was author of the bestselling books series „The Art of Rebellion I, II, III & IV“, that came out in 2003, 2005, 2010 and 2016, which sold over 80.000 copies worldwide and are denoted to be the “bibles of street art“.

Since 2016 he also forms the artist duo “Layer Cake” with his fellow artist friend Patrick Hartl. Together they brought out the book “The Art of Writing Your Name – Urban Calligraphy and beyond“ in 2017.
