A Pixeleye View: The Evolution of Kustom Kulture

We have known about Kustom Kulture for quite awhile, but probably could not have explained it fully to anyone ten years ago. As we trudge along we get glimpses of what Kustom Kulture is through the eyes of many different people. But no one else we know can tie all the elements together like  Dirk “The Pixeleye” Behlau of Pixeleye Interactive can.

This photographer, designer, and film maker, based out of Bonn, Germany knows so much about the modern representation of Kustom Kulture, as well as it’s history and evolution, he could write a book or make a movie about it. Which actually he has done!

There are many photographers who can take a great photo of an event, festival, or weekender, but very few can tell a story through their lens, like Dirk “The Pixeleye” Behlau can, and in doing so brings a subculture to life through color, perceived motion, detailed elements, amd the people who make it real everyday. Through his eyes we experience the evolution of Kustom Kuture in print, film, and his exciting photography.

To say that we are honored that he has granted us permission to use his photos is an understatement. I personally got wet. So here is a preview of what’s to come from one of the Kulture’s preeminent photographers along with some music from Hungary’s own singing “My Red Sock,” The Horibillies.

Be sure to check out one  of Dirk’s books at this link, Kool Fellas, Ltd. – Photography by Dirk Behlau (2010, Huber Verlag), and  his film documentary  “Flake & Flames.”
