1010 recently made his way out to Berlin where he painted for the famous Urban Nation. Using his signature illusion style, the German street artist crushed a massive side of a building adding an almost anamorphic effect to his trompe l’oeil style.
Kiwi artist Askew One recently made his way out to Germany where he got busy on another one of his stunning portrait based murals. In town, for the PM9 project, the muralist went sky high painting a vibrant piece of one of his close friends Suia, who used to live and work in Auckland but now resides in Berlin.
Interdisciplinary artist Deih XLF recently headed to Iceland last week to begin a mural project entitled “Wall Poetry.” Set up by Berlin based curators Urban Nation in association with the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival, the muralist got a chance to create a beautiful piece on the streets of Reykjavic, which was inspired by an audio artist’s song, quote, or poem.
Our man Li Hill recently finished up a new mural in Berlin for the One Wall Project by Urban Nation. The Toronto born multidisciplinary artist knocked out a giant black and white wall using his signature expressive figure subject matter. Here’s what he had to say about the project:
“Based on two source points, a famous statue in Berlin based on the greek goddess of Victory (Siegessäule/ The Victory Column) and the film Wings of Desire by Wim Winders, where an angel becomes human to experience the world. As well as speaking to the spirit of renewal and reinvention, this piece at its core is based on the fragile and unsustainable concept of constant progress and the fallacy of victory. All empires are bound to fall but something new is always born from it.”
