Last weekend, the “Wallbreakers Festival”, which toured through Germany the last months, ends with a big get-together in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The last part of that street-art-exhibition-series was a exhibition, including live painting and music session, by Neoangin aka Jim Avignon, who presented some really interesting paintings.
The idea behind the “Wallbreakers Festival” was it to discuss 20 years breakdown in an artistic context:
“2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. A historical moment in German history, as well as for the cultural scene of the Street Art movement. On one hand, the Berlin Wall represents a salient symbol of the Cold War and the separation of Germany. On the other hand, it represents a creative areal of a peacefull revolution and the biggest open-air galery in the world.”
The Munich native Jim Avignon is well known for his speed, while painting a lot of pictures and selling these cheap or even giving them away for free. His unusual paintings arouse interest, because of its childlike style. Everything seems to be false. Hence you’re wondering about each detail…but take a look or two yourself!
