Frieda is from Germany and received her Master of Arts for Interior Architecture at the Peter Behrens School of Architecture in Düsseldorf, Germany. She has been interested in art since she was a child and started to cut stencils and create street art in 2011. In the beginning she used old photographs from her family as a template to cut her stencil. The stencils are created in multiple layers, spraypainted onto a paper surface and pasted into the urban landscape. Frieda is currently exhibiting her art and collaborative works with Jason Gould at Pretty Portal Gallery in Düsseldorf, Germany.
With her artists name “kurznachzehn“ she has participated in several urban art festivals and group exhibitions throughout Germany and has her work published in the following books: Urban Art – The World as a Canvas, Street Art Cologne and Street Art Berlin. Frieda recently lived and worked in Cologne, Germany as a project manager and event coordinator for the Gallery AIT-ArchitekturSalon.
