Aside from a few bits of sunshine every now and then, the weather in Berlin has been rather grey and cold the last two weeks. Season it with a bit of rain every now and then and you know what we are up to over here.
And this is why I embrace and appreciate color and art of all forms even more right now, then I sometimes do over the rest of the year. And though I cannot complain about the weather this summer in the States, I must admit that art on the street is probably the number one thing I missed (Aside from friends, of course!) when I was away from Berlin.
If you’re in the city in August or early September, make sure to check out Urban Affairs.
+++ ATM likes to invite you to URBAN AFFAIRS – probably the biggest streetart groupshows this year in Germany with about 45 different artists from all over the world! ATM is proud to be a partner of this event and likes to show you new works of participating ATM Artists BIMER, EMESS and BONK!

Went to ATM maybe 2 weeks ago on a weekend, widnessed awesomeness by Bimer and had an interesting chat with Mark (owner of ATM-Berlin gallery, which was opened in Dezember 2007 (if I remember correctly)) about art, streetart and life in general.
So I suggest you go there to check out Bimer and have Mark put you on some list because they plan on having this kind of exhibition more often.
More impressions from Bimer’s exhibition at ATM-Berlin are to be found in my Flickr set.
