After he finished his studies in  Münster and Brussels he decided to resident in Berlin and to take part in it´s prosperering street art and urban art culture. While he shared his art with the city and was awarded the jury price of the Berliner Kunstverein, his works had been shown by the Museum Kunstpalast Düsseldorf, the Museum Weserburg, Bremen and the Freiburger Kunstverein. Since 2012 he is one of the resident artists of the Urban Spree Gallery, Berlin.At Urban Spree Gallery would his upcoming solo exhibition take place and Street Art Berlin was allowed to attend Johannes Mundinger during his mural painting there and to do exclusive shots of him at the wall.His new mural is part of his exhibition with the title BELOW THE FOG (original German title: UNTERM NEBEL).About the main intention of his show, Johannes Mundinger stated as follows:“The impressions we have aren´t reliable, it was a lifetime ago and now we have vague feelings of atmospheres, colours and smells; everything else remains inside a dense fog that psychiatry calls the consciousness.There are a few images that remain in our memory, from our early years we don’t remember them but they form us. Our behaviours, our personalities and our lives all rely on those things we think we have forgotten.Mundinger uses these fragments that are left, he plays with these early influences of images blurring into memories addressing the canvas as if he would recall a moment locked in his own mind capsule.Mundinger plays with the repetition of reality as every painter does yet he explores intuitive gestures and unconscious sequences that gives a detached feeling to the works and allows the viewer to play with their own set of aesthetic beliefs.”
