Create a Selfie Wall Mural Live for Moxy Frankfurt East

Creators Selected On
October 2, 2017

"The jury and Moxy Frankfurt East would love to thank everyone who submitted artwork to this Creative Invite. There was a lot of interesting and thought-provoking work and the jury enjoyed looking through the work.

The jury chose Edward Langlais work as it managed to incorporate three important aspects: local reference, wit and the opportunity of interaction. On the image some of the most famous aspects of Frankfurt are displayed, the apple wine with the original glassware and carafe as well as Goethe, the famous poet who significantly shaped Frankfurt and its society. At the same time the bridge and the party people give the local reference to the immediate surrounding of the hotel. The combination of all of those aspects led to the result that this image is the right piece to complete the overall public area design of Moxy Frankfurt East. - Jury Black Canvas Competition – Moxy Frankfurt East"
Following the success of the previous #MoxyBlankCanvas campaigns, Moxy Frankfurt East is on the hunt for the next Artist-in-Residence to debut at its Coming Out Party in October 2017.

Street artists, live illustrators and graffiti artists from Europe* are invited to design a large wall mural to be used as a selfie-backdrop by guests staying at the Moxy Frankfurt East hotel. This will be Frankfurt’s first official “selfie wall”.

To mark the opening, Moxy Frankfurt East is offering one visual artist from Europe the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their work live on as part of the hotel’s permanent art collection. The selected art piece will be featured on a wall in the hotel’s public space and should inspire hotel guests and locals to take photos in front of the artwork and share them on Instagram. The wall measures 3m (H) by 5.42m (W).

Moxy and its panel of judges are looking for artwork that embodies the spirit of ‘Getting Away With It’ and entertains their fun hunting travelers. The more fun, spontaneous and playful, the better. Before submitting, please read the 'Things to Consider' section below and check out this mood board.

The Selected Artist will receive €4,000 plus €2,000 production budget to bring their design to life. The Selected Artist will be flown to Frankfurt to install their design in the hotel (between 10-20 October, 2017) and attend the hotel’s Coming Out Party on October 19, 2017 (travel and accommodation provided), attended by international media, influencers and other VIPs. Two Finalists will receive €500 each and potential exposure across @MoxyHotels and @MoxyFrankfurtEast Instagram channels.

Things to consider

Before submitting your work, please consider the following:

  • Please submit a visual/sketch/mockup of what you propose to paint/install in the hotel along with a Proposal Plan (pdf) outlining what materials you will be using and examples of your previous work. The Proposal Plan should keep in mind the production budget available.
  • The proposed work should be 3m (H) by 5.42m (W). The wall will be within the public space of the hotel. Please see further renderings and images of the space here.
  • Please keep in mind that Moxy Frankfurt East is located in an industrial harbour area that has a lot of history - Moxy would be happy to see suggestions that incorporate this.
  • Do keep in mind that the Selected Artist will be installing their art into the hotel within 7-10 days before the hotel’s Coming Out Party.

About Moxy Frankfurt East

Moxy Frankfurt East will become a meeting point for local entrepreneurs, while at the same time offering the travelling employees of the neighbouring European Central bank a unique design alternative to their day to day surroundings.
