B:Loft is inviting you for a bicycle ride to Alain Welter’s Vernissage. Filled with concerts by local bands, live art performances, this event is designed to present Alain’s urban art project MakeKolerKooler. In November last year, we had a chance to meet Alain Welter in person and learn about the creative process behind his unusual project.

URBAN-ART PROJECT in Kahler

The goal is to bring colourful street art to the surroundings by painting many house facades, barns and bridges. Because the art can be found in the streets of Kahler, it is easily and freely accessible to everybody. Alain Welter started the project in early 2017 after finishing his studies of Illustration-Design in Berlin. At this time the project is in its first stages and will grow bit by bit.*

After his three years of illustration studies at the BTK in Berlin he is now working on his personal project “Make Koler Kooler” by turning his hometown Koler into a constantly growing Urban Art Museum.
