Street Art Intervention: Demonic Beauties from Berlin in the Paris Metro

Vermibus in Paris by Thomas von Wittich 2

Berlin’s iconic subway has gotten its fair share of street art interventions, such as the train filled with leaves or the one equipped with extra surveillance cameras. Our subway stations also got temporarily adorned with some bold graffitis like the big smiley or the two hands.

Berlin-based artist and street art interventionist Vermibus also once used the Berlin subway stations as a gallery. For his bizarrely obscured advertising posters of fashion and beauty products he changes the perfect models into demonic creatures by painting over the prints with dissolvent. His work also made its way through Europe in the following years. His latest series brought him to the Metro in Paris. What a perfect match these fashion demons are for Paris!

If you want to see his work up-close and personal you should come to his new solo exhibition In Absentia that will open this Thursday on November 9th 2017 at Open Walls Gallery and run through November 25. Enjoy a making of video of his Paris intervention below.
