Urban Nation's Project M/5, Berlin

BERLIN --- Fecal Face contributor Henrik Haven recently got some behind the scenes access to Urban Nation's Project M/5 - 4 times a year Urban Nation invites a group of internationally acclaimed artists to creatively transform the facade and windows of a prominent building in Berlin while it is undergoing change. The art created acts as a creative cocoon, a city canvas, accompanying the modifications happening inside and outside the building.

PM/5 is curated by Roland Henry and VNA Magazine and features a massive mural (and walls) by Eine and window installations by Sickboy, Nick Walker (who also painted a wall outside), Xenz (who also painted a piece inside the UN HQ), Will Barras (who also painted a piece inside the UN HQ), Mark Lyken, Pam Glew, Steff Plaetz, O TWO (who also painted a piece inside and outside of the UN HQ), SheOne and Ben Frost. 

Apart from that Urban Nation organized new outdoor walls by Above, David Walker, Klone Yourself and Don John plus indoor walls/pieces by Anders Gjennestad aka Strøk, James Bullough, 45rpm, Yohnagao, Eli Troinin and Bosoletti.

ROA - new mural in Sweden

A new massive mural by contextual muralist ROA, which he painted last week on a large-scale factory building in Bromölla, Sweden as part of the Ifo Center and their Artist-in-Residence program.

The skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus was painted on the side of an old factory located in the center of Bromolla, situated in north-east Scandia. The village is known for its large ceramic industry, prehistoric fossil-finds and for the world's largest ceramic fountain (Gunnar Nylund's 'Scanisaurus'). Ifo Center is financed via an EU grant and is owned by Bromolla County.
