Angie, by Xi Design

Hidden Berlin Facebook and Instagram blogs (20 May 2016)

Hunched over and dismissive, her bored gaze out over Körtestraße seems almost like a challenge to the Kreuzbergers walking to and fro below. This unhappy angel fell to earth in summer 2014 and since then she’s silently looked out over this trendy Berlin street. What’s Angie’s problem? We guess only the guys at Xi Design know that. “Urban design at its finest” is Xi’s motto. All their works are handmade, sprayed manually onto facades and walls wherever they’re requested – just like Angie was, by the Roggenbruck family at Körtestraße 12. Describing themselves as one of Berlin’s strongest trend-orientated communications firms, Xi Design create works that “capture the ongoing attention and fantasies of the beholder.” You’re meant to have room to breathe when you look at a Xi masterpiece. Room to make up your own mind about what’s going on. And we’re definitely still trying to figure out what’s going on with Angie… See Angie being created at youtube.com/watch?v=0Q-l29a6I0Q #StreetArt #HiddenBerlin #Kreuzberg #Körtestraße #StreetArtBerlin #BerlinStreetArt #Graffiti #UrbanArt #Angie #Angel #XiDesigns #Mural #Art #Berlin #Berlinstagram #IgersBerlin
