Typography Tuesday: Typopassage mural by Alex Trochut

Created by graphic artist Alex Trochut in 2010, this typographic experiment is a passage in the Museum Quarter Wein.  Inspired by the poem of Frederico García Lorca “Pequeño Vals Vienés” and the interpretation from the song “Take This Waltz” by Leonard Cohen, the lettering shows parts of both pieces.  The gray lettering is in English, the brown in Spanish.

Typopassage is an innovative museum project which exhibits typographic design spanning from the initial concept to the final stage. Curated by the design studio bauer konzept & gestaltung this freely accessible exhibition series runs throughout the year. It includes three events which present experimental type designs by young and well-established graphic artists at Vienna’s MuseumsQuarter, a grand museum complex.  The kick-off event included  this impressive ceiling design.
