CLASH WALL is an interaktive street art event in Berlin.
Street artists Wurstbande, Gogoplata and RylseeBring want to bring color to the grey walls of Berlin with a gigantic and collaborative artwork. What they’ll paint is up to you. You can make proposals and give them your ideas via Facebook and Twitter.
About the artists:
Born and based in Berlin, Wurstbande is a creative heads collective which is active in the fields of illustration and wall design. With their roots in the urban art culture, their graphical style is known for naive, cute and sometimes featherbrained characters mixed with original lettering and patterns. The passion for painting and traveling brought the Wurstbande collective around the world to cities like Copenhagen, Prague, Milan, Paris, Budapest, New York City or Vienna where their work can be found.
Cyril Vouilloz, aka RYLSEE, is a visual artist originally from Geneva Switzerland and currently living in Berlin. With a background in typography, design and mural painting, he is obsessed with words and hand-drawn type compositions.
Also he is inspired by moments of everyday life, the city, and signage. He is interested in expressing mundane situations and places in a satirical way. Rylsee is currently an artist resident at URBAN SPREE, an art and cultural space in Berlin.
Berlin-grown, comic-enthusiast Gogoplata developed his creative skills as graffiti artist Gogoplata on Berlin’s streets and as designer in animated film feature productions. Alongside Gogoplata’s fascination with Californian pop-surrealism and lowbrow-artists, his inspirational source is also found in day-to-day life and communication.
