Call for mural/stencil artist

Create a Banksy-style graphic for exterior space.

Description
The Pfaelzer Hof in Germany is seeking a mural artist to create a Banksy-style stencilled image, conveying an emblematic and ecological message, which will be clearly visible to commuters traveling along the neighbouring train line. The design will be based on a photograph of German billiard champion and former hotelier  of the Pfaelzer Hof, Paul Schneider, and is to be applied to the building’s terrace facade. The application of this work is offered in exchange for seven days free stay at the Pfaelzer Hof. It is envisaged that stencil-making, painting and preparation of the wall surface will take just a couple of days with the remainder of the days being free for other creative practice. 

Duration of residency
One week.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
We are specifically looking for a mural/stencil artist for this one-off opportunity. We will provide curatorial guidance for this project. The cost of materials for the designed mural will be covered by the Pfaelzer Hof.

Accommodation
Residents stay in one of our three spacious and beautiful apartments. Each apartment is well appointed and has its own bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. There is WiFi throughout the house. Depending on who is staying there are shared dinners to enable discussion, exchange and potentially forge collaboration.

Fees and support
This is a free residency opportunity in exchange for a mural artwork to be applied to the facade of the Pfaelzer Hof. Includes accommodation, access to shared studio / project room and contact with mentor / curator to help you make the most of your stay.

Expectations towards the artist
We do like artists to have an interview with the local press about their stay.
