Suspended – Alice Pasquini’s Giant Sketchbook

Suspended - Street Art by Alice Pasquini aka AliCé in Berlin

Alice Pasquini, aka AliCé, has been back in Berlin and left the city a present in the form of a giant mural on the side of a building on Warschauer Strasse.

Previous visits to Berlin in April 2012 and December 2012 saw Alice paint a selection of pieces across the city but her latest work in the German capital takes things to another level.

Resembling a page from her sketchbook, Alice painted the series of portraits of a young woman, entitled Suspended and covering 150m2, over the course of 6 days.

Unfortunately, illness prevented me from catching Alice painting the wall but you can see a series of shots of the work in progress by Jessica Stewart of Romephotoblog on Alice’s Facebook page and Instagram feed.

Finding AliCé By Accident

A Little Angel Reflected - Street Art by AliCé in Berlin

When I found out Alice Pasquini aka AliCé would be visiting Berlin in December I was excited and disappointed at the same time.

I was excited because AliCé is one of my favourite Street Artists and disappointed because I knew I would only have a few days to find her work before flying to Cardiff for Christmas.

As it happens, I managed to find 8 of the 13 pieces she left on Berlin’s streets during her visit before I left, which I posted here.

It wasn’t until last Sunday when I was walking around Kreuzberg hunting out some old MTO pieces for my MTO: Photorealistic Street Art in Berlin post that I found the remaining 5 by accident.

Sometimes things just go your way.

For me, these are some of the sweetest pieces of Street Art that AliCé has painted in Berlin.

AliCé – Back in Berlin

Peek-a-Boo - Street Art by AliCé in Berlin

The insanely talented AliCé (Alice Pasquini), an andBerlin favourite, has been back in Berlin brightening the streets with her beautiful Street Art.

Knowing AliCé flew in last Thursday and spent the weekend painting in the city I had to get out and about and see what she has been up to.

I didn’t manage to find all the pieces that she has posted on her Facebook page and Flickr stream so far but what I did see was all well placed and well executed.

Whiskers - Street Art by AliCé in Berlin

Unfortunately, this piece, one of the sweetest of the latest additions to Berlin’s streets (as you can see here) has already been defaced by some idiot – some people just don’t want to see beauty in their surroundings.

London Street Art – Various Artists

An added bonus of a trip back to the UK to visit family and friends was an opportunity to walk the streets of East London taking photos of Street Art.

Street Artists have definitely been busy in London over the last year, especially in the lead-up to the Olympic Games, despite warnings from the authorities.

Where artists have appeared on the blog before through their work in Berlin I have linked back to the relevant posts, just click on the artist’s name.

Mr. Fahrenheit

It was great to see so much work by Mr. Fahrenheit (this isn’t all that I saw), much of which I had seen pictures of on Picturing England.  There’s quite a lot of his work on the streets of Berlin (some just metres from my flat) and I’ve been saving up photos to do a profile of the artist.

ROA

Giant Crane - Street Art by ROA in East London

This piece by ROA was the subject of an online petition and protest when the council covered it with a hoarding advertising Brick Lane as the ‘curry capital’.  Thankfully, the council saw sense and uncovered the piece when they realised the strength of the public outcry.

Birds - Street Art by ROA in East London

There are 2 birds in this ROA piece but new brickwork has been added and left significant gaps in the artwork.

CRISP

Yoda Protesting for the Occupy movement - Street Art by CRISP in East London

I saw so much great Street Art in a couple of days walking around London that I’ve had to split the photos I took into a number of posts, so expect some more London Street Art tomorrow and next week.

AliCé in Wunderstadt

AliCé Signature: Street Art by AliCé (Alice Pasquini) in BerlinI realise that the title is Denglish – it’s not grammatically correct in German and doesn’t make sense in English (and the name AliCé is neither) – but I couldn’t resist it.

Good Friday really lived up to its name for me.  I walked around Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg taking photographs of the incredible art of AliCé.

Who is AliCé, you ask?  That’s a good question and one that I wouldn’t have been able to answer two weeks ago.  I found myself asking that question when I first saw this piece in Friedrichshain after taking a photo of the Fadi Saad wall by Vhils for my Vhils – Go Forth post.

Undercover: Street Art by AliCé (Alice Pasquini) in Berlin

When I saw another AliCé in a doorway off Frankfurter Allee.  This time on the same day I spotted the two C215s in my C215 on Frankfurter Allee post, I had to find out more about the artist.

Pulling Faces: Street Art by AliCé (Alice Pasquini) in Berlin

I googled ‘Alice Street Art Berlin’ and checked out Alice’s website and Flickr stream.

AliCé (real name Alice Pasquini) is an Italian artist based in Rome.  Describing her art on her website Alice states:

I create art about people and their relationships, I’m interested in 
representing human feelings and exploring different points of view.  
I especially like to depict strong and independent women.

On her Flickr stream Alice has included photographs of the pieces she painted recently in Berlin and very helpfully included the locations of most.  Having noted the locations given and with a rough idea of where the others might be I headed out on Good Friday to take some photographs.

I realise that this is the Street Art equivalent of trainspotting but it would be idiotic not to mine such a rich seam of quality street art and get some photos while the pieces are in good condition (as it was the piece near Arena club was covered by a poster that I had to carefully remove).
