From the street to the gallery

Christian Awe began his painting career as a graffiti artist in Berlin Lichtenberg in 1990. When he started studying art, he had never even heard of his famous teacher Georg Baselitz. In the meantime,he no longer wields his spray cans on the streets. Now he works from his loft in the Lichtenberg district of Berlin and shows his work in galleries on both sides of the Atlantic.
