Some months ago, he was part of the “Aerosol Fumes” exhibition, which presented almost the best Berlin-based stencil artist and now he has his own exhibition at ATM Gallery in Berlin – Yes, I’m talking about Czarnobyl, who lives and works in Berlin since 1993!
Well influenced by the craziness of cyberpunk, house squatting and graffiti, his detailed stencil artworks combine motives of cyborgs, alternative people, abstract patterns and other strange things…
It seems like Czarnobyl’s works want to remind us of the technological progress and its’ unfulfilled promise of a better future. His creatures are completely torn, lonesome but oppressive as well as nostalgic and not yet in a common sense beautiful. Czarnobyl’s protagonists appear much more as mutated outsiders of an evil and unequal game like the mutants of the Megapolis. (press release)
Last Friday, I visited the well-frequented opening and took some shots.
