After Berlin epically embraced and celebrated the unique art installation “The Haus” in 2017, it was about time for another larger than life urban art project to hit Berlin’s scene (and have it all wet in anticipation). Berlin Art Bang e.V. – the creators of “The Haus” – have thought of something equally special to keep the urban art spirits soaring: large, breathtaking brand new street art murals, all over the city.
About 100 artists were invited to grace Berlin’s dirty old walls with 30 new mind-blowing murals, that turn the city into a big open air gallery for the very first Berlin Mural Fest that took place in May 2018 with artists like Ben Wagin, Arsek & Erase, Herakut, Stohead, Saturnoart, Semor, Tasso, Akteone & Cren, Saturno, One Truth, Insane 51, The Weird, Quintessenz und Mr. Woodland and also Klebebande.

The urban art initiative Urban Nation – known for their One Wall project for years and most recently for the opening of the first contemporary urban art museum in Schöneberg – have also thrown their latest murals into the mix making the Berlin Mural Fest even bigger with international artists such as Elle, Nevercrew, Millo, Telmo Miel and James Bullough, Super A, Nuno Viegas and Snik.
