Kiss the City: French Graffiti in Berlin

While stones and bottles were flying against policemen and thousands of young people party the Walpurgis Night in Berlin, the Skalitzers Gallery in Kreuzberg opened its doors for a great art show last Friday! Kiss the City shows amazing artworks by the four famous French urban artists Babou, L’Atlas, Sun7 and Tanc.

With roots in tagging since the early 90s, it is the making of their mark that unites them. Working together since 2003, their works individually interpret the emotion, ambience, gesture and search for the master-stroke. (press release)

It’s very interesting to see their different styles close to each other – The abstract typography by Sun7, the style-mixture by Babou, the fine graffiti circles by Tanc and of course the genius of L’Atlas…

By the way, I heard the trees whisper that two of them had some trouble with the police. Hopefully everything is fine with them… However, the exhibition runs until May 28th. Those of you who are in Berlin, should make sure to check it out! Maybe – with some luck – you meet one of the artists at the gallery!
