Victor Ash’s Cosmonaut in Kreuzberg Comes to Life

We already have you a bit of a preview of the new street art murals that were added to Berlin’s landscape thanks to the Berlin Mural Fest 2019. One piece that really stands out is actually an old classic – but revisited.

I’m sure you’re all familiar with the big cosmonaut by Victor Ash that you can see from Skalitzer Straße corner of Mariannenstraße. It’s probably one of the most known pieces of street art in Berlin and has become really a symbol of the district and the city. The idea to create a video mapping to bring the spaceman to life is really ingenious – but wait until you see the final result.

On this past weekend on Saturday and Sunday you were able to see the video projection with a mapping created by RE:SORB in the evening with an atmospheric soundtrack that made the experience really goosebump-worthy. The animation looked absolutely stunning, so much better than I could have ever imagined. And so much better than many video mappings I ever saw. But I guess as a fan of the original artwork I am slightly biased here.

If you missed out on this happening or simply want to enjoy it again we recorded a portion of it for you to relive the magic.
