Last year I travelled to Berlin for the ‘Berlin Rising’ paint jamm at Teufelsberg which gathered around 40 artists from UK and Germany. This year I headed back to the capital to paint at Urban Spree and Urban Nation, two organisations promoting street art.

Urban Spree is an artistic space dedicated to urban cultures through exhibitions, artist residencies, DIY workshops, concerts, an art store and a large Biergarten. I painted the entrance door with a piece entitled ‘In Art We Believe’, depicting a girl praying while carrying a paint bucket and roller.

Urban Nation aims to bring together artists that shape and enrich urban spaces in neighbourhoods around the globe. Their headquarters, based in South Berlin, became my playground for a couple of days. I painted this boy, very serious looking, reloading his paint pistol. Game on!
