Xoooox – Germany’s most popular Street Artist

Germany’s most popular street artist Xoooox just got his first monograph by and published by Gestalten! Xoooox, who became famous buy spray-painting models in unsuitable positions on the streets of Berlin and other metropolises, was the first German street artist to come to prominence on the international art market…

The work of has always been a standout for me. The images of these sexy fashionable women stenciled around the streets of Berlin always stood in such high contrast to the collapsing buildings they were painted on. In a landscape covered with street art that always looks much the same it is very refreshing to see an artist with such a singular vision. (Aaron Rose)

I for one really enjoyed his gimmickry with acid stencils on metal, the nice installations he created for the exhibitions at Circle Culture Gallery or for the Berliner Strasse group show some years ago and I also liked the somehow hidden consumer critique.

This first monograph, documents Xoooox’s works on the street and also includes photographs of selected exhibitions and of the artist at work. Looks like another great Gestalten issue on an interesting former street artist…
