It’s the start of spring and the weather is improving as winter slowly leaves us. It has been a time of stagnation in the street art and graffiti scene as the artist avoid the freezing temperatures, but as the mercury rises there is a stirring in the streets, an energy that invites us back outside and the perfect opportunity for artists to get active again. An artist who goes by the name of FUKU SHIMA recently bombed Friedrichshain in RAW, the East Side Gallery, the Oberbaumbrücke and throughout Kreuzberg. Featuring throw up and paste up styles we have had a whole new project of art donated to the streets, ad a run one at that.
FUKU SHIMA hit the streets leaving behind a few fish designs, @ Pirates Berlin, The Alicé Pasquini Mural and RAW Temple.
Along with the fish there were a few paste ups left behind on the East Side Gallery of the ‘fish face’ design but no tags were left with any of the works. So I had to search a little more to put a name to the new works of art. I identified this artist through stickers, displaying the unique style that appeared throughout the Kreuzberg district known as the Wrangel Kiez.
This sort of bombing is rather interesting as we see a blend of graffiti styles mixed with street art installation techniques. Quite a simple design but also attention grabbing and a really fun design to add to the street art scene in the area.
