Mother Drucker and Victor Ash just released a new limited edition screen print based on a mural created by the French artist at Urban Spree this summer: “Full Moon” can be considered as the follow-up story of the iconic Berlin Kreuzberg “Astronaut”.
9 years after Victor Ash painted the “Astronaut” mural (22m x 14m) in Berlin Kreuzberg as part of the 3rd editon of the Backjumps Festival in 2007, the artist came back to Berlin in the summer of 2016 to paste the full moon motive on the Urban Spree Artist Wall.
As much as the “Astronaut” refers to David Bowie’s song “Space Oddity” (the astronaut is a direct reference to Major Tom), “Full Moon” is a tribute to the sequel song “Ashes to Ashes”.
Separated in time (9 years), and distance (3,5km), the mural and the print offers a reverie about the fate of Major Tom and the essence of street art: did Major Tom find the moon Victor Ash placed for him, and will he ever?
We have only a couple of prints available of this already sold out edition.
