“Facetime” Mural by Various & Gould

View all 15 Photos

Berlin artist duo Various & Gould have taken their love of screen-printing to new heights with “Facetime,” a colorful mural that spans a 350 square meter façade on the border of Mitte and Kreuzberg. Their first attempt at a wall painting, the project from their 2015 series under the same name; a collection of collaged facial features, the unorthodox “portraits” are intended to question commonly perceived symbols of gender and beauty. Although each character is “fictional and [bears] no name,” they “appear more realistic and authentic than many of the glossy beauty faces represented in the daily news.” This large-scale, colorful expression poses a positive challenge to conventional media representations of the human form. Various & Gould have released a screen-print edition based on their mural, available exclusively at Urbanshit Gallery. See the mural for yourself in the video above shot by drone.

While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
