Urban artists and galleries from around the world came together to exhibit their works at the STROKE.ArtFair, which took place in Berlin last week/end.
From painting to streetart, graffiti, illustration, comic or photography, everything was represented, the STROKE sees itself as a revolutionary art fair, with art for the 21th century.
The Street artists FinDac, Belin, Inti and Shaka decorated the wall which surrounds the YAAM, the Young African Art Market (Stralauer Platz 35), with some amazing Murals, during their visit in Berlin in 2012.
But since the YAAM has to move to a different location, to make place for another big construction project, it’s not quite sure how long the wall (and the murals) will remain.
STROKE N°7 took place in Berlin, artists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Mexico, Spain and many more countries around the world joined their forces to represent Urban Art as an emerging global postmodern art development without any attitudes or academic prejudices. From painting to streetart, graffiti, illustration or photography the URBAN ART FAIR represented finest in Urban Art.
The young international art scene came to Berlin to celebrate the capitals reputation as electric breeding ground for young emerging art and its corresponding lifestyle. New this year, ANIMAX and URBAN ART FAIR cooperated and brought the aesthetics of anime “on stage” during the fair.
Street-Artists, like Noel, Gogoplata, Dave the Chimp, Lake, 1010, Eliot, Base 23, Tim Robot, Czarnobyl, Bimer, Pabo, Herr von Bias, M:M, Sam, Prost and Emess, have transformed an old shopping mall within 2 month into a streetart masterpiece, you may recognize some of these paintings from older articles.
This amazing Street Art can be found beside a playground near the Maybachufer in Berlin’s district Neukölln. The wall painting was designed by children from the neighborhood and painted by the artists H.A.v. Bias, Statz and Dixo, because a big gray wall wasn’t really suitable for a playground.
Because Berlin is a World City, nothing is odd, not even a huge Brazilian World-Cup-Victory-Celebrating Street Art.
The painting, located in the Schöneberg district, was part of an art project named Joga Bonita (play beautiful) a unique promotion for the World Cup 2006 in Berlin/Germany.
And who knows, maybe they have to add another star after this years event.
Tomorrow is a big day, the City of Berlin will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
For that reason, the big East Side Gallery was repaired and repainted. The Berlin Wall East Side Gallery is a 1.3km-long section of the wall near the center of Berlin. Approximately 106 paintings by artists from all over the world cover this memorial for freedom and make it the largest open air gallery in the world.
The Gallery tells with its pictures the story of Berlin and Germany’s history. Many artists were invited to repaint their pictures which were created about twenty years ago. The paintings and the wall were in an extremely deteriorated condition through weather, air pollution, vandalistic collectors, and simply time.
The East Side Gallery is located near the Ostbahnhof.
