Berlin-based urban artist Manuel Osterholt aka Superblast is going to have a new exhibition in Berlin this month!
Since 1989, Superblast discovered the world of graffiti, which made him detect his own, Hip Hop, Punk Rock and skateboarding influenced style. As a graphic designer he works with a lot of big brands like Sony Playstation, Ecko and Montana. His book Neo Utopia, which is part of some of our urban photo contest prize packages, presents his whole career, starting with style-writing in Heidelberg to street art influenced graphic design and painting in Berlin.
On August 22th, he will be part of the Sister Cities – Los Angeles/Berlin exhibition with his art installation called The Shadow Of The Future at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Berlin. He combines several icons and symbols of world religions and cults to an unconventional pairing. They are illuminated with the old world craft of gold foils and are combined with the new age of street art sensibility. With this he has created series of modern graffiti artifacts. I will go there and take some shots for you!
