The Spanish artist David de la Mano was in town to enrich Berlin’s Bülowstrasse with a new ONE WALL. The wall he was working on had already been featured one of his artworks, which was unfortunately damaged due to installations on the house. No problem for the artist – he lets this ONE WALL shine in new splendour with a new work of art.

David de la Mano is best known for his stunning murals often depicting silhouettes, trees and other monochromatic imagery. With his new ONE WALL for URBAN NATION entitled “Gray Habitat”, he also remains true to his style, because it shows in a large-scale a black-and-white picture of a woman who on the one hand is closely interwoven with nature, but at the same time also seems to nourish herself from the power of nature and thus gains strength and size. In his usual minimalist aesthetics, De la Mano evokes strong feelings and thoughts.

David observes others and their social or anti-social behaviour, exploring every corner of social behaviour in his practice, using silhouettes of men, women, or the masses as narrative metaphors. Through these figures, he gives poetic visions of the human condition in society and the ways human perceive the world.

The new ONE WALL by David de la Mano can be seen at Bülowstrasse 10.
