When we visited Berlin-based Japanese artist Twoone in his studio last month, he shared explorative new works featuring animals. We got a chance to catch up with him again in Berlin last week, where he was hard at work on a new mural in the Urban Spree complex. Named after the nearby Spree river, the complex features rotating urban art by emerging and well known international artists. Sadly, it is rumored to become the construction site of a new highway, making Twoone’s large scale mural covering the main building’s facade particularly significant. Titled “Ride or die/sink or swim”, the piece took two and a half days to complete and portrays a rearing horse, energized with brightly colored abstract elements. A play on words, its title is a reference to the piece’s sponsor, Spoke Bike seat covers, as well as our original mode of transportation, the horse. Twoone’s mural is located at Urban Spree at Revaler Str. 99, 10245 Berlin, Germany.
