Murals | Installation
Here’s some first production pics I did right after finishing this office-mural-concept project in December 2022. I hope to get some proper photographs soon. Just to get an idea – two rooms, one concept. Client: VOLAREX | future in mobility
European University VIADRINA Frankfurt (Oder)
These are 30+ drawings I did for a 30-Years-Anniversary-Book about the European University VIADRINA in Frankfurt (Oder).
Going back in time and spotting the light on (architectural) places where it all started about 30 years ago.

Mural "Lichthof" Installation
I painted/built this installation at HOTEL BERLIN, Berlin a few weeks ago (@luetze_berlin). This space kind of has my name on it. It’s huge, weird shaped, has super high ceilings…
Here’s some first fotographs taken by @pixelanddot and me. Just flip through the pages.
Skateboard Decks Ltd.
Seven ply Canadian maple skateboard deck. Manufactured with tons of love in Germany. Size 8,25″ x 32″, mellow concave. Mid 90-ies shape. Rainbow dyed (all seven plys / seven colors of the rainbow). Limited on 100 pieces. Comes numbered with stickers. SORRY, SOLD OUT ALREADY.

900 MARIN ST. SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94124. Pics: @itsmissael & @deerbln
I painted this mural at the DRAWING ROOM ANNEX on 780 Valencia St in San Francisco. Thank you to my friend Renee DeCarlo. She runs this beautiful place alongside a ton of other great things. Full power woman and a good friend. If you’re in SF, you should definitely see this gallery in person and don’t forget to give Renee a hug from me.
I painted this little mural at BARLEY SF. It’s a nice and classy bar on 1038 Polk St, San Francisco. If you’re around – have drink and some nice bar food there and don’t forget to say “hi” to Erik. Cheers!
Here’s a fun little project I recently did with “LITTLE BOARDS” brand. Just got the samples.
Proper skateboard/cruisers for the very little ones. Canadian maple, good trucks and wheels for a good start. Cork top instead of griptape.
Here are some photographs of the penthouse terrace I recently painted for a client in Berlin. All in all approximately 25 meters in length.
As always, it’s tricky to capture the whole space – due to size and perspective. So please flip through the pictures to get an idea.
The clients reaction was pure happiness. All smiles. Berlin Sky.
Concept design. Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg. This used to be an old brewhouse back in the days. So I tried to incorporate a brew kettle and some architectural references from the area nearby. As always – it’s hard to capture the whole space. Please flip through the pages to get an idea. This foyer room is about 70sqm/770sqft with quite tricky lights and shape. Just finished this project last weekend.
"Culture is back"
Okay, it might seem a bit cheesy at first, but even though I appeared in a whole bunch of media over the years – this one is a little special. It just doesn’t happen very often to be
Especially with the title “The Culture Is Back”. Whow! You see me shy – and humble.

This is a hallway I recently painted for a client/friend here in Berlin. Super hard to capture the whole thing. I hope the pictures give some idea of the whole space. Tricky, narrow and long
mural installation at GO
Here’s some photographs of the staircase I also did at GO Berlin. As it’s a spiral there’s no way to see the “whole picture” at once. Please flip the pages to get an idea. It’s two stories.
GO / GameOver Berlin
Here are some production pics. I painted about 600 sqm murals (about 6.500 sqft, spent about two full weeks on the lift) plus a two story spiral staircase indoors. Pics: Anne Schulz / @annuee
REFLAECT Exhibition at Fernsehturm Berlin
This is a collaboration piece with Røb/TapeOver shown at Fernsehturm Berlin/TV-tower.
203 meters above sea level. Show is up until the end of October 2021.
Shutters - big scale free hand drawings
This one was quite a challenge. Pretty hard to reach because of the weird set scaffolding. The two bigger shutters (right) are 4 meters high and the surface makes it nearly impossible to draw a straight line – well, see for yourself. I am happy with the outcome. Unfortunately it’s impossible to take proper pictures of it. The scaffolding will stay about another year and the facade will be made (weird timing) probably next spring. I did my best – taking pictures to give you an idea of what it might look like. Big scale free hand drawings.
Some SF drawings from a while ago. Just to show a range…
Collaboration mural with Parisurteil
With this wall at the Teufelsberg Berlin, we want to honor Harvey Milks legacy as an advocate for equality.
„It takes no compromise to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.“
„If you are not personally free to be yourself in that most important of all human activities— expressing love—then life loses its meaning.“
Those are Harvey Milk quotes hand-written by @parisurteil next to my architecture fragments of the Castro district, San Francisco.

FULL DESIGN CONCEPT – "Future / Timeless"
I was asked to do a full design concept for the Berliner Volksbank Business HQ in Berlin. Including several murals to paint (main mural here), installation, polywrapping on ca. 30 meters of glass walls of meeting rooms, print finishing… Much work and way more fun – indeed.
So – here are some first pictures I took with my phone. More and professional ones to follow.
Fun little mural project I realized during quarantine times at @init_ag
SF in Berlin | Minimalism
Cosy Corner – SF Shadow
This is to be close to San Francisco, my “home away from home”. Even while being in Berlin. Especially in times of “Social Distance”.
Stay safe everybody!
Heinrich Zille Tribute
This is a collaboration wall with my friend and fellow artist PARISURTEIL.
And it is a tribute to HEINRICH ZILLE (quotes / calligraphy) and BERLIN.
Museum Island Berlin
A clients project.
This was a step outside my comfort zone. But the “Museum Island” in Berlin is quite a special place for me. I grew up just 2 minutes from there. We played in the ruins, walked by on our way to school and skated those ramps for disabled persons by the stairs when we were kids.
As for this mural – I am very happy with the outcome. The corner gave it some extra spice…
Indoors Dot Mural
I was asked to paint an indoors wall / mural for a client / friend that recently moved to Berlin.
I am pretty happy about the outcome – and so is the client. Yay!
Flip through the pages to see the full piece and some more detail shots.
This was the last wall in 2019. Looking forward to what comes next in 2020.

THE MIDWAY SF
I started this beast during my Dec.-2018 stay and finally finished it this October 2019. That thing is huge – and it’s hard to take pictures.
Please click through the pictures to get an idea of width and height…
When Renee DeCarlo asked me to paint her shop front/display thing at TheDrawingRoomSF – I didn’t hesitate at all. This is a sweet gallery/studio in the heart of the Mission/San Francisco. She’s working her a… off for the SF art community. My pleasure!
Sad news about this one – It was destroyed during construction lately…
Artist Feature in the very first issue of "B*" - The Business Magazine of Berliner Volksbank.
Special thanks to Olivia Rost for those warm words on my work.
The Urban Art Festival in an abandoned psychiatric ward in Neustrelitz | Germany.
I was invited to paint at this years artbase festival and took the huge hallway | staircase at “Frauen 2”.
Please flip through the pics to get an idea of the whole space I painted. Pretty hard to get an idea of height, size, the space from the photographs. Some pics with daylight, a few at night…

H23 | "Urban Red"
Task was to create a “Red Urban World” on the 7th. floor of H32/ FinTech Hub Berlin.
This floor is huge and I just uploaded some of the walls yet.
Sometimes it’s a thin line between art/ concept art/ design/ illustration.
So I’ll post it in the ART section and in ILLUSTRATION as well.

Just to give an idea how I work (on those). Those were framed right after they got some more details and such.
Here’s a glimpse of my studio wall – showing some random pics of my current fine art pieces. Since I don’t list every single piece of my artworks up here – this is to give you an idea or a reminder… Please feel free to come for a studio visit to see my art in person.
deerBLNstudio | Bülowstr. 96 | 10783 Berlin
Hosted by the DIXONS – the task was to turn a former parking garage into an art space. More than 50 artists were involved painting the place. I was one of them – showing my walls here.
The space itself is challenging on so many levels – soon to be open to the public.
Pics: KatWorx/ A.Baier/ deerBLN
Neue Urbane Welten – Mural
Fun project/ mural at ALTE POST Spandau/ Neue Urbane Welten. Urban Art Hall.
Besides the original artworks there are always a few art prints and editions every now and then.
You are welcome to stop by at deerBLNstudio or just check my Online SHOP.
These are just a few examples…
The surrounding of the MIDWAY SF at the dogpatch is a perfect playground for my “shapes and shades” – as I call my style of murals.
Due to some grey San Francisco sky it was quite hard to see the details in my minimalistic work. Please flip through the different pictures with grey and sunny skies.
Thanks to my friend Zoe Ani for the sunny pics.
There is more behind the steel fence… hard to picture the whole piece. Will upload some more pics asap.
The task was to turn the “green room” of The MIDWAY San Francisco – main stage into a little world of its own.
Here are some first pictures.
MURAL at PUBLIC WORKS, San Francisco, Mission District.
Better pics to come – due to parked cars, smokey air and tons of trash bins during the painting process.
Thanks to my friend and fellow artist Zoe Ani for helping me.

Amazing space. Mad props for this festival. Beautiful hanging, great industrial charm.
Get there to see the show if you have the chance.
I was invited to paint this mural inside MUCA – Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art in Munich. Tricky to take proper photographs, because of the shape of the wall. It’s a triangle – ending in a pretty tall part. Super fun anyways.
Those two dogs/ sculptures I was invited to paint. Street Dogs for MUCA
(Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art/ Munich).
Soon to be seen in a sculpture park in Ingolstadt Village.
Please flip through pictures to see both of them. More pics to follow…

Crossed Lines blurs the boundaries between art and design, as well as between mediums, through a heavy use of line by each of the artists. While born, raised, and based in different cities their styles speak to each other and to a contemporary international aesthetic.
I was asked to paint an “Urban Feel” for the entrance of high class restaurant
GOLVET – incorporating some surrounding Berlin street scenes …
URBAN NATION/ Museum for Urban Contemporary Art opened its doors on September 16/ 2017.
Still blown away. This is a must see!

Private Mural in a new built house. Pretty sketchy to take pictures. The wall is very long and two stories tall. Thin hallway. Fun anyways.
My friends at PureBlackInk did a wonderful job by producing these wonderful laser engravings on birch wood. It’s simply amazing. I sent them my drawing files and here is an example of what I got… blown away by the quality – still. There are some more. Just come by to my studio for a coffee and a chat and take a look.
Colors Of My Home
‘Colors of my home‘ is dedicated to the people living in a multi culture housing complex in Berlin. Inhabitants and neighbors are dealing with the sometimes challenging aspects of understanding different customs all under one roof. This is not always easy as we all know. Not only but often mostly language barriers are what gets in the way of mutual understanding and is what breeds fear or misconceptions. However, there is always one language that we all understand: ART. Communication within and through images, objects and colors. With the strong and ongoing support of these artists: BLO / TANKPETROL / deerBLN / IDRAWALOT / VHILS / YOH NAGAO / AWK and PAOLA DELFIN …we are aiming to help offer the opportunity to encourage connection for those living in these houses and hope for more communication especially amongst the kids in the house. All artwork is based on the idea of cultural freedom, positive curiosity towards things that may appear ‘different‘ and lots and lots of laughs and fun!!!
