Originally from Baltimore and Seattle the two urban artists James Bullough and Karl Addison (together known as JBAK) are pushing urban art in Berlin for round about a year now, creating colorful murals (like the purple one they did last year) by combining photo-realism, geometric forms and fine line drawing styles.
JBAK – Urban Art Berlin
Though their styles and approaches are different, their shared interests in art and culture and their desires to experiment within the limitlessness of their mediums, brought them together. Their mutual love of travel, urban societies, and the people who inhabit them, led to the development of a more cohesive theme of unity and humanity. (Jennifer Weitman about James Bullough & Karl Addison)
I for one like their somehow crazy, pure artworks and their open-minded attitude. Berlin needs people like James and Karl to continue being Europe’s capital of creativity, for what reason I’d like to say thank you to the Berlin Collective for producing this nice artist introduction!
