“Technique and freestyle is my way of perfection”
Damian Yves Rohde is a contemporary Berlin-based artist who is known for his versatility. Growing up in an artistic family in West Berlin, he began experimenting with his own creations at an early age. Always directly influenced and inspired by his close contacts and the Zeitgeist (for example by the former Berliner Kunsthaus Tacheles or the Dead Chickens collective), he first began to make a name for himself as a graffiti artist.
After studying art at the Universität der Künste in Berlin (UdK), he began to work in classical painting. His abstract works are colorful and unconventional and show an unmistakable and unique character. Despite his worldwide success (shows in Paris, London and Basel, amongst others), he has remained true to his artistic roots on the street and continues to design art walls. Remarkably, Damian Yves Rohde is one of the most important street artists in Cuba. All of Havana is adorned with his (legal) artworks, created over the past decade. No local artist has painted as much in the island’s streets as he has.
