This year’s Stroke Urban Art Fair hosted contemporary urban artists from all over the world at Alte Münze – Am Krögel in Berlin. It is a self-proclaimed hub for “Low Brow”, “Illustration”, “Street Art”, “Graffiti”, “Graphic Design” or “Comic Art” fused with classic notions of art as well as unconventional resources that are newly interpreted in a fresh, innovative and mostly postmodern context.
There was an impressive amount of work displayed at the fair, about two-thirds of the work were displayed by galleries and the other third were artists representing themselves. An exciting spin on your typical art fair were the live painting installations where fair goers were able to watch artists at work (as seen in the picture above). See some more pictures below!
It was enthralling to watch artists work and see all the variations in methods and means. Some had headphones in, some chatted with the audience, others would be so focus it looked like they were becoming part of the art work itself.
There were many people enjoying fair. The hours were quite convenient, it was open from 1 pm-10pm most days.
The fair encouraged and produced lots of dialogue and exchange between artists, curators, gallerist, and art enthusiasts. Like these two artists who were using each other as inspiration while people admired their work and occasionally made enquires:
