SatOne just completed his latest mural in Bielfeld titled “Rebirth” SatOne usually working abstract in nature with vivid colors, yet when you look closer you are able to see color and form establish a conceptual idea. It is through his abstract aesthetic and brilliant use of color that you are confronted first with a beautiful image of abstraction, but as you look closer you may notice the symbolic use of color and manipulation of form creating representational elements as well.

The strictly limited Sneaker Freaker x Montana Cans Infra-Red created a nice segue for us to talk to two true German sneaker and graffiti connoisseurs. Lars a.k.a. AtomOne was born in ’72 and is among other things MC of the Too Strong hip hop crew, a busy graffiti artist of more than 25 years and a long-running Montana Cans employee. Niko – also known as Besser – was born in 1975, also grew up in the Ruhr’s graffiti scene and currently runs the first sneaker store in the city of Essen, Sole Hunters. Both of them have been passionate about sneakers for a long time – and to celebrate, they sprayed a piece for Sneaker Freaker on a wall in the centre of their native, former coal-mining area known in Germany as ‘The Pott’.
