It Must Be The Abs

Stencil piece by Polish artist Igor Dobrowolski titled “Sick Future” found at the Berlin Wall in Germany. This work is a series of stencils relating to social media. Dobrowolski likes to depict the bad sides of humans and draw attention to social and political issues.

“There are many topics that I try to move in my work, or maybe the topics move me, such as death, depression, war, problems of the poor and homeless, addiction, narcissism, lack of empathy.”
– Igor Dobrowolski

This is how I found the piece two days ago. And below is a better shot right after it was finished.

Who Is Strøk?

Anders Gjennestad aka Strøk is a Norwegian street artist from Arendal, currently based in Berlin, Germany. He is known for his multi-layered stencil work that contains extraordinary details. His stencils are mostly based on his own photographs. Strøk likes to recreate the photographic visuals on new surfaces such as decaying ruins of factory walls or rusted metal.
Allegedly, Strøk often chooses not to sign his outdoor works by any name, stating “that it is not important to him if people know the identity of the artist as much as it is important for them to feel something in front of his work”.

Love Letters Building

In 2011 German conceptual artist HA Schult wrapped a former Berlin post office in thousands of oversized love letters that he collected from the public!

About 35,000 of the collected letters were used to plaster the outside of the building in a colorful mass of whites, reds, oranges, and blues, while about 115,000 more were found inside. This project was called “Love Letters Building”.

A letter from the latter read, “I can’t live without you. The loss feels deeper by the day.” Then ends with the words, “It is a pity you’re a cat.”*
