Berlin Street Art - TEJN

Berlin Street Art - TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

A selection of some of the best Street Art Berlin has to offer.

Danish Street Artist TEJN creates sculptures from salvaged Iron found on the streets.  A number of pieces from his ‘Locked On’ project have popped up around Berlin including this huge character, which seems to me like it may be a Norse god, a larger version of a previous sculpture on Kastanianallee.

i812's insight:

The struggle for freedom continues.

Picture above: Street art sculpture by TEJN. Handcuffed character reaching for freedom symbolized in a bolt cutter, chained just/almost out of reach.

Finding Peace with Sculpting Street Artist TEJN - Brooklyn Street Art

Finding Peace with Sculpting Street Artist TEJN - Brooklyn Street Art | TEJN | Scoop.it

...Tejn just released a fresh batch of lock on sculptures. Made from salvaged iron found in the streets, welded into sculptures, and returned as art chained to public railings. The three pieces I have spotted so far, all speak of peace, and they seem almost tailored for the locations. Like the gun in the meat grinder, attached to a pole by the troubled People’s Park.”“The attention to detail is extraordinary. Look at the tiny hands on the man carefully winding up the peace sign! I find it impossible to pass a Tejn, and not feel instantly better.

Den sjuttonde december 2010 blev sista gången den tunisiska regeringsmakten konfiskerade gatuförsäljaren Muhammed Bouazizis grönsaksvagn. Klockan halv tolv på förmiddagen tog tjugosexåringen en tändare och satte eld på sin bensinindränkta kropp i protest mot en odemokratisk statsapparats övergrepp.

 

Muhammed Bouazizis aktion satte igång ett folkligt uppror och arabvärldens autokratiska regeringar sattes i gungning. Idag är det tre år sedan den arabiska våren startade och upproret pågår fortfarande...
