Stefan Strumbel masht Streetart mit deutscher Kitsch-Ästhetik aus dem Schwarzwald, baut bunte, riesige Kuckuksuhren mit Knochen und Waffen und ist der erste Künstler der Welt, neben dessen Kunst sich Karl Lagerfeld offiziell ablichten lies. Großartig! SpOnline International hat ein Profil, Snip:

At the crux of Strumbel's work is one German word: Heimat. The quintessentially German concept, which roughly means homeland, was the title of a previous exhibition in Colorado, sparking confusion among visitors. "There is no English word for Heimat," Strumbel explains. "Some people link Heimat to a place, for others it is a feeling."

And it was his explorations into the concept of Heimat which led him to the cuckoo clock motif: "When I speak to people about Heimat, people from across Germany mention the cuckoo clock, it represents the German Heimat feeling."
