Graffiti Legend Sigi Von Koeding Aka "DARE" Rest In Peace

Dare To be different
 Unfortunately Sigi von Koeding aka DARE(b.1968) has lost the fight  with cancer and died at Evening 6th March 2010 in Hospital in Basel . The loss of this Inspiring Artist will be noticed more and more by every minute for sure... Our sympathy goes to the family and close friends of Sigi and All Graffiti Writers who could see the magic in his lines.
After several exhibitions in Switzerland between 1992 and 1995, Dare exhibited at the Art Frankfurt fair and at the Kallman Museum in Munich in 1996.
His works can be interpreted as written selfportraits, every letter is unique and has it's own expression, reflecting the artists daily feelings and representing his name. Dare Induces his own writing style, punctuated by elegant and fluid poses. Always exploring new posibilities and techniques on his canvases.

Rest in Peace Dare † 06.03.2010 from I Love Graffiti on Vimeo.

Qualified as « branding », his style has an unique identity, including letters outlined with extreme precision, layers of bright colours and original backgrounds. 
the paragraph below is one of the latest posts he made into his blog for his fans.
"every year, first sunday in december the kesselhaus where i have my atelier opens the doors for a public viewing. hundrets of visitors joined this event... for those who missed, see you next year in my atelier!"  Taken from Dare's Blog 7th december 2009.
