Berlin Drawings 2

Stefan Marx - Berlin Drawings 2
The everyday life of Stefan Marx in Berlin, in a new 300-page volume of drawings.
Berlin Drawings 2 is released three years after the first volume, one could say the two volumes span pre- and post-pandemic Berlin. The small scale drawings were made in different situations—being on public transport, in nature, at the TXL airport, walking in different neighborhoods, or just at home. On 300 pages Stefan Marx shares his impressions, thoughts and observations of his surrounding space, drawing down faces, typographies, animals, daydreams and quotes of Berlin.
Berlin Drawings 2 is Stefan Marx's 30th publication with Nieves.
Artist and designer Stefan Marx (born 1979 in Schwalmstadt, lives and works in Berlin) is an actor of the skateboard scene, whose drawings usually adorn productions of his label "The Lousy Livincompany". He also collaborated with Playhouse Records, as well as with famous skateboard brands.
An expression of everyday's experience with a critical distance, his black and white drawings, overpainted flyers and enigmatic slogans are anchored in street culture but address our cultural awareness.
During the past years, Marx' art travelled around Europe in several occasions and galleries (like "“The Side Effects of Urethane"), as well as being reproduced in various magazines and publications like The Art of Rebellion and Street Logos.
