"OTHER" or Derek McHaffrey, is an "other" kind of graffiti artist who lives in Montreal. He doesn't use spaypaint, or letters. He colorblends oil sticks to create surreal characters. He actively travels around the world painting on walls or objects that he finds and then leaves in public.
I met Other for the first time at the Berlin airport. He heard I was going there to make a video on the wagon communities. I paid him half his airfare to help me. I ended up turning the camera on Other as he painted and as we toured the streets of Berlin looking at street art. We saw SWOON and BANKSY before anyone knew who they were.
This video is a good look at the street art of Berlin.
