with some surprises
Berlin Graphic Days, 15 to 17 March 2019 at XLane, Kreuzberg
Since 13 years, „Berlin Graphic Days“ are inviting about 60 national and international graphic artists, illustrators, street artists, gig poster designers, screen printers and artists who have distinguished themselves in a wide variety of graphic fields, to exhibit and sell their works during that three days. Visitors can discover works and meet, get some silkscreen posters, prints, T-shirts, postcards, bags or unique graphics. This 13th edition takes place in an back yard location in Kreuzberg, an old charming brick building.
Surprising were the presence of adbuster collective Dies Irae and a group exhibition of painters known for urban interventions. Investing two levels of the empty building, WESR, NASCA, THE KRANK, Jason Parker and WAKE produced a show in situ: painting directly on the walls and adding some interesting studio works in the setting, the artists added some art gallery flavor to the whole event.
