Tuesday 12.10.2013 , Posted by
rone-5

Street artist RONE’s newest work makes us do a double take. Painted on a five-story building at Nollendorfplatz in Berlin, the piece looks perfect from a distance, yet proves rough and dripping upon closer inspection. One example of the Melbourne-based artists’ extensive street portraits, the mural embodies RONE’s efforts to “locate the friction point between beauty and decay, the lavish and despoiled, creating an iconic form of urban art with a strongly emotional bent.” [Read more…]

Buildings Spray Paint Stenciled on Old Cardboard

Monday 04.30.2012 , Posted by

While these may look like photographs of large apartment blocks from Eastern Europe, what you are actually seeing are highly detailed artwork on common cardboard. That’s right, Berlin based artist Evol takes discarded pieces of cardboard, tape and grease pen markings intact, and spray paints near photo-realistic windows, doors and light posts with stencils on their corrugated sides. Surprisingly, the many layered paintings on the rough texture come off looking much like the beige facades of well worn buildings in pre-gentrified East Germany. [Read more…]

No Sailor Jerry or unicorns here, the tattoo designs of Peter Aurisch have a distinctly designer look to them; so incredibly different than the standard ink on the street. His work melds both modern and reinterpreted classic themes, often combining intricate line drawing with carefully chosen overlapping layers of bold color.

Wednesday 04.27.2011 , Posted by

The KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin defines itself as a place for the production and presentation of discourse oriented contemporary art, and Cyprien Gaillard is the perfect artist to have an exhibit there. Gaillard is known for constantly exploring the dystopian aspects of architectures and their ruins; carefully observing their dilapidation, destruction, demolition, preservation and reconstruction.

A First: Interactive Film with Augmented Reality

Tuesday 03.15.2011 , Posted by

As part of a relaunch for Germany’s Universal 13, a revolutionary new film, The Witness, has been created in which you play an interactive, traveling roll. Using augmented reality on an iPhone, participants begin their adventure by witnessing a kidnapping by the Russian mafia. It’s then their job to track down the victim, finding clues, communicating with other participants and viewing other scenes on location around the city of Berlin. Much like a real life Choose Your Own Adventure, participants can both save the day or become the next victim themselves.

Hans Hemmert is fascinated by air and latex balloons in a bright canary yellow. But these aren’t just your average latex inflatables, some fill entire rooms while others surround Hemmert himself. Posing as a giant elongated egg, he performs dances or interacts with the objects outside his elastic bubble. His work here is just a small sample of the expansive portfolio displayed at ingesidee.de.

Looking for a locals bar in a popular city? Look no further than these maps, which plot the places locals and tourists frequent.
