Street Artist Plotbot (KEN) became famous in Berlin for his perfection of multilayer stencils and par amounting backgrounds that have been appearing on the streets, abandoned buildings, historical places, power stations, chemical factories, military bases and other exceptional locations in and around the city. There are various reasons that are motivating artists to bring their art on the street and extraordinary places. In Plotbot´s case, one reason is for sure: His apocalyptic works and their environment are artistic synthesis that are developing an expression that could never been paralleled in a gallery.
„What Plotobts Street Art is visualising a reminiscence of our past, presents and future.“
This Art Work in the water can be found near „Stattbad Wedding“:
This artwork can be found at the RAW in Revaler Str. 99, Berlin:
Another Art Work that can be found near „Stattbad Wedding“:
His Street Art in Berlin is showing nuclear or chemical disasters, and is revealing an end time atmosphere. His apocalyptic creations seem to be surreal and terrifying. Through the contrast of dark and really bright and fluorescent colours, that he is using to emphasize the unnatural and lethal substances, his pictures appeal like they would be originating out of a dark futuristic science fiction nightmare. His art works become even more glommy when you realize that his works aren’t science fiction nightmares, they are the reality of our present age and future.
The next artworks are located at Plotbots personal „wall of fame“. The location is secret.
That artwork by Plotbot was made for an event called „Movement for Hope“
The humans in his pictures are wearing well protecting ABC suites of different decades of our nearer history to protect themselves against the outside world that is a hostile for life. Plotbot depictives chemical warfare gear of the first and second world war, of the Vietnam war, of Czarnobyl and Fukushima. Some protective suits. That is confronting and disturbing the observer.
That artwork by Plotbot was made while the „Stroke – Urban Artfair“ in Berlin
The last both artworks are located at the arthouse „Tacheles“
Great to see a collection of some of the city’s fesint. I have still never taken a true blue tour of Berlin and think something like this tour might be just the right way to play tourist in our own city. One question was Tacheles still open? I heard it was really & truly shut down.
We have no personal opinion about guided tours. But there are allready a bunch of companys offering tours in Berlin and some of them are doing there job really really good.
Yes, the Tacheles is really and truly closed. On the day they closed it down there have been maximum 200 people, including police, lawers, reporters and the artists. It was sad that nobody has shown up to prevent the closing.
Here we wrote a short post about it:
You can also find some photos of artworks made in Tacheles if you search on our Blog.
We hope the information was helpull.
