Within the legendary Berlin street/urban art scene, Karl Addison and James Bullough (JBAK) have established themselves with a number of impressive works both in the city and beyond over the past few years.
The pair are due to start painting an epic 32m high building in Berlin on Monday, but before this, Karl had time to complete his own 100m long wall at the corner of Klosterstr. and Stralaurstr.
Karl’s illustrations are among my favourite, and it’s always great to see these translated onto a bigger canvas.
Utilizing a mixture of the Screen Printing theory of trapping he uses for his drawings and the way he paints using Colour Theory, these colourful Koi Carp are really, really cool.
Karl also runs the Idrawalot Gallery in Berlin, a great space in Neukolln that’s recently started to offer artists a residency in the city.
The Program is a free one month studio and residency for a working artist, providing valuable resources and support for a working professional and emerging artist specializing in drawing, screen printing, painting, murals, urban & contemporary art.
