Berlin based street artist Evol is best known for his recreation of streets and buildings on cardboard or electronic switch-boxes. He uses spray paint to recreate the “Plattenbau” aesthetic of urban Germany. Despite being a street artist most of his work today is done indoors and for the gallery market, following the likes of Banksy and the other household names of former street art you’ve all become very familiar with.
His latest project took him outdoors… not back to the street but to the countryside where he created an urban city within, or shall we say underneath, the endless meadows that are part of the MS Dockville festival outside of Hamburg. While Evol usually works and interacts with existing structures, this might be the first time he “broke ground”, got down and dirty and created one of his own.
