Ingo Giezendanner (born 1975) is a switzerland painter and installation artist. Since 1998, Ingo Giezendanner, alias GRRRR, has been documenting the urban spaces in which he has travelled and lived. Apart from his native city of Zurich, his travels have taken him to diverse cities from New York and New Orleans to Cairo, Nairobi, Karachi and Colombo. Everywhere he travels, he captures his surroundings on location with pen on paper. His drawings have been presented in numerous magazines, books and animated films as well as in spacious installations and wallpaintings.
In conjunction with Mark Divo he painted the exterior façade on the squatted factory grounds Wohlgroth in Zurich in 1993. Since then, GRRRR has realized many wall paintings. During his stay in New York, he painted a mural on East 2nd Street. In 2004, he worked on a large-scale mural on a site hording at the Kunsthaus Zurich depicting the reconstruction in progress.
GRRRR has been presenting his work continuously in a series of publications. The first is the self-published booklet “GRR1: video”, which appeared in 1998. The current book “GRR30: urban recordings” is his thirtieth publication. It contains drawings from the years 1998 to 2006 which provide insight into GRRRRs entire work for the first time.
Now Nieves presents his last work, Iskandariyah Skan (192 Pages, Soft Cover, b/w Offset, 13.2 x 18 cm, $28).
The book launch will take place this Saturday, July 2nd, 2 – 5 p.m. at Nieves, Ankerstrasse 20, 8004 Zurich.
