Continuing their art related efforts, Urban Nation recently invited Shepard Fairey's (featured) in for their One Wall Project. Intermixing the text "Make Art Not War," "Eyes Open Mind Open," and "Rise Above," with his familiar imagery, the Los Angeles-based street artist has left a visible mark in the hip Berlin district for the fans of Obey. The new mural is located right at the entrance to the U-Bahn station Hallesches Tor, Mehringplatz, at the beginning of Friedrichstraße. Shep states - "I was in Berlin for a few days in 2003. I have hardly ever seen so much graffiti in one place as in Kreuzberg. There is so much youth culture and energy to soak up – it was great working here and it certainly won’t be the last time.” Photo credit: Henrik Haven. Discuss Shepard Fairey here.
