Gift Card – Poster A4 Volksbühne Berlin
The Gift Card- Poster A4 Volksbühne represents the theatre “Volksbühne”. It’s located at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz (Rosa Luxemburg Square): map.
I drew this urban sketch on the 26th of May 2010 directly at the location in Berlin-Mitte.
As a technique I applied wash drawing (ink and water).
And the artistic tools that I used for this illustration are:
- a sketchbook (Watercolour Paper- fine grain, Format 31 x 22 cm -12,20″ x 8,66″-, 280 g/m2 -140 lb.in2-)
- a calligraphic pen (“Pilot Parallel Pen”- 2.4 mm)
- 2 paint brushes (fine and medium)
I was sitting front of the cinema “Kino Babylon” on a piece of wall, at the crossroads Hirtenstr. and Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. I needed one hour for this urban sketch but then it began to rain… so it seemed that I had to stop to draw.
This illustration is also on my blog “Traversée d’Encres”.
On the left of the Poster Volksbühne Berlin, we see the theatre “Volksbühne” and on the right the cinema “Babylon”. We are at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. This place is dedicated to the Marxist theorist, socialist, communist and revolutionary German woman: Rosa Luxemburg.
The Volksbühne (“People’s Theatre”) was built during the years 1913 to 1914 and was designed by Oskar Kaufmann.
The “Babylon” was constructed in 1928-29 by the architect Hans Poelzig. This cinema is used for the “Berlinale International Film Festival”, as well as musical and literary cultural events.
