    Just came back from a trip to Berlin for inspiration and trend spotting.
    Many of us took a picture of that including me. Funny to see it again/

    If this photo doesn't scream "BERLIN" I don't know what does. Awesome!

    You are successfully wetting my appetite for Berlin!

    Could it be Banksy??

    Its an Norwegian artist who is behind this grafiti. His name is DOLK and have many artworks around in Norway and other European cities.

    Use google translation if you don't understand norwegian:P

    Just google DOLK and you find many artwork from him

    Excuse me, but this stencil is by Oxo, Xoxox or XooX, as one can see when looking at what comes from her head. It is an artist from Berlin!

    I would say it's the artist Xooox. He makes stencils in Germany. Manly woman thinking xooox.

    But maybe it's work of both.

    Guys, it really does not look like Banksy. The style is too clumsy for Banksy (even for Dolk, I would have thought but I am wrong apparently).

    Not everyone who does stencil is Banksy. Banksy did not invent Stencil! I read recently in the British press that Blek Le Rat is France's answer to Banksy… I have seen Blek Le Rat's stencils in Paris at least since 1984 (and I am told he started in 1980-1).

    I also suggest you have a look at guerilla photographer, if you want to see the most fantastic stencil/photo landscape art in the world:

    I think this IS mindblowing.

    BY the way: nice picture, great post!

    This made me smile. The street art inspiration is fabulous, but her outfit is great, as well! Is that weird to say, considering she's graffiti? Probably..

    I wonder who the heck painted that. It's cool (or kewl)! Be interesting to see if and how it turns up in fashion media.

    This is exactly the kind of photo I love to take on my travels. It's like a Banksy for the fashionista. And I know she's only a painting, but I really love that outfit!

    Anyone know where exactly this is?

    That stencil is made from a shoot by Russh Magazine with Catherine McNeil a few years ago in Australia. I'm pretty sure it was one of her first big editorials.

    Have we stepped back in time here? I love this. I am instantly reminded of Mary Quant, Vivian Westwood, Sid and Nancy. This wall art spans over twenty years of fashion. And obviously in this area of Berlin, its still alive and well. I love this. I lived through, an apt way to put it, this period and loved the absolute abandon in manner of dress, makeup, accessories, music, everything! It was a time of pure raw self expression.

    hey guys, my name is peter.
    i made a story on both xoooox, who did the wonderful stencil and the model eva, who is looking exactly like the spraypaint.
    you can see it on my site:
    have fun
