New Multi-story Mural by RONE in Berlin‏

December 1, 2013

Christopher Jobson








Street artist RONE recently completed work on this great five-story mural on building facade at Nollendorfplatz in Berlin. The artist is known for straddling the line between beauty and decay by creating large-scale depictions of idealized portraits that appear perfectly composed at a distance, but a closer inspection reveals signs of deterioration and imperfection. You can see more photos of this piece over on photographer Henrik Haven’s Tumblr and see more work by RONE here. All photos courtesy Henrik Haven.

Update: According to Complex the face used in his latest piece is that of fashion model Teresa Oman as a part of Project M with Strychnin Gallery.
