About neck.cns


This Website is the online portfolio of graphic designer (by day) and graffiti artist (by... uh... also by day, actually) Neck of the CNSkillz crew from Germany.

I started out painting pretty classic graffiti styles back in 1989. Then I honed my skills on the emerging 3dimensional letters. There was the fascination, there was the next big thing, kind of a revolution to be taken part in. And so I did.

oliver gelbrich, neckcns.comI found that graffiti had become my main interest, so I studied communicational design as a consequence and ended up being a fulltime designer. The result? My graffiti art looks like done by a designer, and my designs definitely still have that graffiti feeling to them.


born in Düsseldorf

first graffiti work

founding member of international Artist Group "Checkin' New Skillz" (CNSkillz) with members Ate1, Efas, Meric, Moritz, Scien&Klor, Seak

Graphic Designer, Creative Director for On- & Offline Media

Constantly trying to push boundaries, to develop something new blending my most dominant backgrounds: graffiti and graphic design. There is a massive amount of inspiration, input and development to be derived from the force field existing between the movement and emotion conveyed in a wildstyle and the more reduced and somewhat clinical beauty of graphical layouts: this force field is the area in which I operate.

Take a look around, enjoy your stay.
