On August 28th, 2015 Keep Berlin Weird presented the two chicagoeans Zor Zor Zor and Mario Gonzalez, Jr., a.k.a. ZORE or Zore64, for a joint exhibition at the Berliner Vorwahl Loft in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Both are working as street artists as well as studio artists in the USA and it is their love to Berlin that regularly brings them back to our beautiful city we all love so much.
At the artist reception both artists were quite busy answering plenty of questions from the people and were happy to explain ideas and markant features about their art to the interested audience. Especially ZorZorZor’s deep drawings of women which also have become kind of her trademark steered a lot of interest with guests.
One of the visitors of the exhibition was Berlins oldest Hipster, seventy year old Anton Krabbenhöft who was recently featured in style magazines all over the world for his unique way of dressing, including Cosmopolitan and the US Huffington Post. In a chat with Mario, the Kreuzberg native revealed that he is a big fan of street art and that he enjoys being surrounded by the ubiquoius beautiful art that the streets of Berlin offer. He added, it’s like living in a big gallery which is also permanently changing and evolving.
We would like to thank the artists for bringing their great artwork to Berlin. Many thanks also go out to our friends from Berliner Vorwahl for hosting this event in their space, and Bangkok Street Food Kitchen for taking over the beverage catering for the event. We had a lot of fun and we are looking forward to the next time our friends from Chicago are back in Berlin!
