KARCOCHA STREET ARTISTS ARE IN LOVE WITH THE HARDEST WORKING STREETS.
Some of them are obsessed with their own art.
That’s what makes their work so difficult to capture on a canvas.
Nowhere is this more apparent than at the infamous Karcocha Street Art.
The city’s most famous street art group has been trying to revive their reputation since they were evicted from their former home in 2003.
Karcochas art has been repurposed to create some of the city’s finest murals, which have been seen on many buildings, including the Royal Albert Memorial.
The artist and his team of artists are a part of the new revitalization project that was announced last week.
One of the muralists is Karel Krueger.
He and his wife, Karla, are the creative team behind the Karcochanas murals.
Kruegels husband, Karel, has a passion for street art.
He’s been painting murals for almost 20 years.
He said he was drawn to Karcoca by the citys lack of amenities, like parks and bike lanes.
It was only in the last year or so that he noticed the murals and decided to make a living doing it.
Krues has a strong artistic sense and is passionate about his art.
I just like doing what I love and I think that’s why I did it,” he said.
“I know there’s no money in it, but we’re happy and we’re doing it for love.” “
People do not understand how hard this is to do,” Krueggs wife said.
“I know there’s no money in it, but we’re happy and we’re doing it for love.”
He says she and his husband are also passionate about their work and are looking forward to the day when they have their own home.
“There’s no other option, but I think it will be very difficult to get back into Karcochi.
But I will never give up,” Krues said.
Karla says it is a beautiful day for Karco and a chance for her and her husband to reconnect with their families.
They are excited to finally have their new home and enjoy life in the city they call home.
“We want to keep going with it and we are really looking forward for that day.
It is a great day for us,” Kruaegers wife said, when asked if she thought the muralties were a good move.
“We’re really enjoying it and I don’t think the graffiti has changed our lives,” she said.
We will always love KarcoCha street art but we will never stop painting.
This is a small part of what they do.
We love doing it and want to continue doing it with our family.
