iepe: 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. official german railway bicycles were rented and rigged with hinged buckets that allowed for quick and easy unloading of the environmentally-friendly, water-based paint. red, yellow, blue, and purple, the colours were then organically spread by moving vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians to result in a dynamic, visual piece that mapped the life and motion of the intersection.
