Last weekend I took part in the “Berlin Rising” street art festival organised by Hidden Streets of London at a very unique venue: Teufelsberg. The abandoned spy station from World War II, located in the woods in West Berlin, is a huge complex with multiple rooms, domes and rooftops – the perfect playground for street and graffiti artists!

Argentinian roller master Alaniz and I did a collaborative 8m large mural. Whilst I created giant black and white hands, Alaniz painted the face and hands of a girl being trapped in the middle. The hands are trying to suffocate her, keep her quiet, while she is fighting them. The piece is about abuse, about the untold, about the empowerment upon a suffering being, about people trying to reduce you to silence. About the resistance and the fight against it.
