Mots wall for URBAN NATION Berlin

We bring you the recently created mural by Mots in Berlin, which was titled “de-touch” and painted during URBAN NATION art residency.

“Our hands have always amused us: how many things we can express, love, hate, create and destroy with them. In current times they have become a symbol of our carelessness towards others and ourselves since we now have to care about what we touch to protect the ones we love, something that is the exact opposite to our most natural impulse. In our project, we decided to explore the ambivalent status of the hand and how its visual deconstruction can emphasize how we perceive it.“

Location: in a front of URBAN NATION Museum, Bülowstrasse 97, Berlin.

Mural painted for URBAN NATION Fresh A.I.R. in Berlin.


About Mots: 

Mots – visual art duo from Portugal and Poland, created by painter and illustrator Diogo Ruas. Jagoda Cierniak, photographer and project coordinator, has joined in 2017.

Their collaboration fused their individual approaches characterized by Diogo’s experience as an urban artist and Jagoda’s engagement in photography and social – art projects.

Mots is an author of dozens of murals, big-scale paintings around the world. The biggest piece done by the artists was created in 2017 in Porto’s downtown, near the iconic Douro river, and it became part of its panoramic view. Five hundred meters square wall merged with the landscape of the city.

Visual artists integrated work into various initiatives such as social projects, educational events, solo and group exhibitions, urban interventions, street art festivals, and publications in magazines and books.
