A regular to the street art scene around the city of Berlin and around the world – artist Sokar Uno held his very first exhibition at the ‘Factory Berlin’ in Germany launching late April 2018.
Held in his homeland the exhibition ‘Delirium’ was a chance to showcase his talents in creating art that encapsulates vintage techniques and artefacts alongwith featuring people affected by erosion and damage to their statue-like bodies.
Some of the artwork is titled ‘VHS’ and you can see why – here he has captured the line tearing, the bearding and general degradation of the video signal! #tvgeek
Set in the ‘Factory Berlin’ the venue’s contrast of exposed brickwork and battered concrete really made the work stand out and shine whilst DJ F Rille provided some great vibes on the opening night.
“The basis of his artwork are illustrative-realistic representations of human beings and their body shapes which he breaks into fragments and than brings them back together in bustlike pieces.
In his self-created world he also reflects his own feelings and emotions.
This close connection of the artist and his artwork and the specific haptic of his painting make every piece not only immensely expressive and powerful but also extremely timeless and valuable.

Whilst so far the work has been exactly what I imagined it to be I was totally blown away by some other work on display featuring abstraction using foil as the primary media.
(Apologies if this isn’t Sokar Uno’s work but I couldn’t see any information on who else it would’ve been created by!)
Having travelled around the world Sokar Uno has previously painted a fantastic piece in Camden, London which is a typical example of his current style and techniques.

Originally from Gotha the self-confessed artist, painter and illustrator now resides in Berlin and paints on many media including some larger pieces direct onto walls too.
Here he painted this masterpiece at Upfest in Bristol where you can view more images via the link below:-
The exhibition runs until the end of June 2018 and is well worth a visit.
