Biography / XooooX

XOOOOX is an anonymous street artist based in Berlin. Originally working with graffiti only, XOOOOX moved on to use wheat paste to attach ads of women from fashion magazines onto walls. The artist has also explored among other mediums having also experimented with stencil art. Over the years he developed a broader sense for street art in general and starting working on public installations also. His works can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/11 in 2017.

His life-sized stencils, which are heavily influenced by veterans of the art form like Blek le Rat, can be found in major cities all over Germany. XOOOOX’s work is rarely planned, the self-taught artist instead, usually finds matching walls and places to share his art whenever he roams through a city.

He then takes some time to locate the perfect spot, one that matches the message he wants his art to convey. Often times those places are transitory media such as exposed brick walls or worm eaten woods, places that support the contrasting image his fashion-themed designs express. Using mostly pictures of dolled up women that appear in stark contrast to the surface they were attached to, he sheds light on issues within the fashion industry and mass consumer marketing, while touching on existential themes such as vulnerability and transience.
