First Berlin Subway Wholecar 1989

West-Berlin in may 1989, after 3 months of starting hitting the subways in regular for the first time, by my old Partner Kage (GFA) and myself with pannels and e-to-es. I decided to show the pictures of our new hobby to Maxim (R.i.p). He came up with the idea to go one step further and said: "We have to do Wholecars". He asked me which lay-up would be the best for that and I reply Breitenbachstation lay-up. We setted up a meeting 3 days later and Maxim brought Asek (AC) with him. And so, we 3 went for this masterpiece (for 1989 in Berlin). This Wholecar was published, after more then 20 years for the first time, in the Documentary Unlike-U.
I have to notice, that on the right a t-to-b mushroom done by Maxim is not pictured, also the Wholecar is completely done with Marabou Buntlack, i mention this for Ces53 from Rotterdam, who once said in an interview, that we didn't know about Buntlack in Berlin, before they came to Berlin in 91.

recap: Yard 5 meets urban Spree

On the 19 of april 2014, Yard5 meets Urban Spree, was happening. An outdoor Graffiti jam + Indoor exhibition + Beatbox Contest + afterparty, with a nice Germanwide line-up + international guests and a even nicer Location, in Berlin. I painted a little wall outside, with ENTA from Hamburg and OGRE from Lyon, and showed some Style-canvases inside at the exhibition. Big up to Yard5 for organizing this huge event and the free entrance for everybody.

Recap: Backjumps "Christmas special" 2013

Kunstraum Kreuzberg, december 2013 from outside..
Backjumps "Christmas-Special" was represented in Berlin, from 13.-15. 12. 2013. @ Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien. The Exibition was curated by Adrian Nabi.
Displaying the works of: Akay & Brad Downey, Amok & Kacao77, Arunski & Poet, Markus Butkereit, Dave the Chimp, Markus Mai, Mode2, Phos4, The Wa, Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf and Daniel Weißbach. At the following pictures I just try to discribe what i saw, i had no talks with the artists about their intention or background within their works, so my comment is equivalent.

leftside of  Mode2 his room...

on the rightside were 2 canvases hanging..

A couple of drawings/studies? in different styles on paper...

 Markus Butkereit presented a remoted-operated motor-pump machine and a Shortfilm documenting the process of a bleeding housefront, that is struggling with the external circumstances...

view from outside...

4 works/drawings done together by Amok & Kacao77, which fitted good, i think, because of their strong distinctions stylewise/visuell and the try, to create harmony or commonalities in between via the contrast ...

The wall of Arunski & Poet, showing a couple of collabo works of their vision of a transport (out of 3 different "Monotypie-Bombings" serie's) and the try of total controll of a series of acts, within the transport. that is documented in a shortclip.

some works from the "white" edition 2011..


..3th edition 2013..

one out of the "high-glossy" edition (sorry for the bad picture)

in the center you see the small "tag-pack" box. Folded paper, where the removed color-pigments are packed from the transports.

Phos4 presented 4 new canvases, showing that his heart is still beating for stylewriting..

Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf  displayed a shortmovie..which i didnt had the time to really watch the whole film. But remember these names from Berlin, or better their shortmovies.  Symbolic, these guys interpretated or captured, for me the spirit of "getting up" in a complete new context.

The Wa presented a installation called "The Nest" (seen below) together with these pictures, Where the "doves" have the material taken from..

Dave the Chimp presented  a couple of great examples of unique and funny carneval mask designs,  seen weared on two picture frames..


Dave the chimp...

and Dave the chimp presented an (un)lucky (art)dip. where you could choose, for 10eurones a "surprise" package... 

Daniel Weißbach showed a serie of 3 canvases that looked first like glazed tile's, straight taken from the subway station, but on the second look you discover an ongoing anomaly within the gap's.  Another work from Daniel Weißbach was a manipulated piece of bricks hanging on the wall.
