Cream began writing graffiti in 1991. In 1998, he turned attention to working with urban space, and in particular was drawn to abandoned buildings and sites. In these he’s created large-scale installations, with the intention of bringing attention back to disused space. For his exhibition with Urban Art Info, Cream focuses on Michaelkirchplatz 4/5. The building has been vacant for some time and is located in close proximity to the former Berlin wall. All this combines with Cream’s work to invigorate interest in the spaces and places of the City’s past. The exhibition will run June 22 through July 20, 2009. (via Gestalten).
