Painting Reality

Dutch artist IEPE rubingh along with the anonymous crew has transformed a major intersection near berlin’s rosenthaler platz into a colourful, oversized street canvas.’painting reality’ is a guerrilla-style art project that involved 500 litres of paint to be strategically spilled on to the road. Red, yellow, blue, and purple are the colours that organically spread by moving vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians to result in a dynamic, visual piece that mapped the life and motion of the intersection.

IEPE is known for his ‘traffic congestive actions’ in Berlin and Tokyo, as well as the raining ‘Miracle Trees’ in Singapore, Berlin and Arnsberg. Additionally, he is the inventor of the hybrid sport ‘Chess Boxing’ and is the director of the World Chess Boxing Organisation, with clubs in Siberia, London, Los Angeles and Berlin. IEPE works “within society” or “with society”. Thus the artists’ idea was to find a way of combining body and mind and integrate this modality in society. As well as this, his work is about controlling aggression and thinking outside of the many boxes society consists of. The work ‘Painting Reality’ is connected to the idea of Social Sculpture and is a picturesque implementation of it. The movie is a documentation and co-production by the director AKIZ and IEPE.
