Berlin based Street Artist MTO

The Street Artist MTO, which is the short form for Mateo, was born in France and worked mostly in Berlin. Apart from that information, MTO managed to keep his identity and information’s about himself secret. But his artworks are speaking for itself and his anonymity im combination with the sizes and the elaborateness of his works are astonishing.

MTO became known for spraying gray scaled portraits with a typical red outline (that is part of the artwork and his signature at the same time) – usually of people who inspired him. For that reason he started painting musicians like the young Micheal Jackson, Ray Charles or Jimmy Hendrix but also movie actors and their most interesting film scenes, like Jack Nicholson from „Shining“, Robert De Niro from „Taxi Driver“ or Angelina Jolie from „Tomb Raider“.

But the most interesting works of MTO for Street Art lovers are definitely the portraits of Berlin based Street Artists like Emess, Alias or 4rtists (aka. Mr.6). Of course he proofed his skills also by painting objects like big turntables or showed a lot of humor by painting the German chancellor Angela Merkel as a punk in the old art house Tacheles.

      Hey Olli,
      das Kunstwerk Taxi Driver von MTO war an der Spree, nähe des Badeschiffs. Leider haben wir gehört(!), dass es nicht mehr existieren soll.

    Hey, I was wondering if I could get in touch with you and maybe ask you some questions about street art, artists etc. I’m working on a schoolproject about street art but I need to interview some people about the scene.
