Berlin's rough cityscape is marked by urban art. Paintings, graffiti, stencils, paste-ups, stickers. Berlin is a city where both national and international artists go wild. This iPhone application allows its users to discover urban art where it takes place - the streets, hidden backyards, in hallways, behind fences or in remote places. You can search your local environment for art work, go on suggested tours or scroll the mobile gallery to see another side of Berlin. The Urban Art Guide editorial staff will constantly update the site. Users can interact with the guide: If the user explores new works of Berlin's street art himself, he can send his suggestions to the editorial staff directly via his iPhone. Furthermore all pictures can be rated, commented and recommended to others. In addition to the iPhone application, the Urban Art Guide website urbanartguide.com goes beyond Berlin's scene by featuring pictures of international art works, artist portraits and interviews as well as event and book recommendations. adidas Originals offers the Urban Art Guide for free download for the iTunes store from March 20th forward.
Mobile devices are excellent platforms for interactive art. This channel is a celebration of such artefacts.
