What is One Up? Who is One Up? Where is One UP? One Up is a sprayer crew from Berlin-Kreuzberg. Their work is everywhere, and not just in Berlin.

Some people have all the talent! I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted a very tall unicycle resting against a lamppost. The thing must have been close to 2 meters high - at any rate much bigger than I am. My astonishment was all the greater when my friend called out 'look'! There, on Continue Reading

This is a stencil graffiti by the Berlin graffiti artist who goes by the name Alias.
Alias may be working under an alias, but the work is pretty damn famous. This photo was taken in Kreuzberg just a few days ago. But the piece has been up on that wall for years! Now that's a sign Continue Reading

UTOPIA! Take a look. The word UTOPIA is crafted here from a bunch of plastic sandbox toys. The colorful shapes arranged to form letters. They're fastened to the side of an old and abandoned train trestle in Görlitzer Park near our offices in Berlin-Kreuzberg. UTOPIA... there you see a yellow shovel in the U. In Continue Reading

Augentäuschung! Dies ist kein Kiosk - sondern nur ein Bild von einem Bild von einem Kiosk. Der ganze Kiosk ist ein totaler Fake, obwohl die Zeitungsablage vor dem Verkaufsfenster sieht zum Greifen echt aus. Die Abbildung vom echten Kiosk auf der anderen Seite des Gebäudes ist auch etwas älter - man sieht's an der Knut-Schlagzeile Continue Reading

Kreuzberger Feuerwache, Berlin, German / Fire Station in Berlin, Germany
Graffiti is so Kreuzberg, that even the fire house is covered with it. Hand painted flames and fire fighters grace the front facade of the fire station in Wiener Strasse. One of our office colleagues thinks the figure here looks like a Berlin version of a Continue Reading

Mosaic by Mathias Waller in Görlitzer Park Berlin
Mathias Waller has created a new mosaic in Kreuzberg's Görlitzer Park near our offices in Berlin. Appropriately embedded in the side of the Turkish Fountain ruins, the piece is quite large, like Waller's other bottle cap mosaics. In summer, he had some temporary urban art pieces embedded directly Continue Reading

Winter seem to last forever in Berlin. The U-Bahn, our subway, is sometimes the only dab of color in an otherwise monotone landscape. Snow, gray sky, we welcome color from anywhere in months from October to April. Kreuzberg, Mitte, Neukölln or Friedrichshain - we know why the graffiti street artists are tagging the walls. From Continue Reading

Last Friday afternoon, while riding the bus, I witnessed an unusual scene from the bus window: German entertainer Frank Zander was singing at Kottbusser Tor (Berlin-Kreuzberg). Some people had gathered around him and a film crew was filming him. I don't know if he was giving a free concert there or filming a music video Continue Reading

realeyz.tv caught up with Timo Jacobs, the star and co-director of achtung berlin feature competition entry KLAPPE COWBOY! (Clapper Cowboy!) at Saturday's festival party. The extremely low budget labor of love (although not that low budget, says Jacobs, if everyone had been paid “humane wages” and not deferred their fees), produced over a period of Continue Reading
