Apl315, a 23-year old graffiti artist, is the head of the Fat315 writer crew, known across Ukraine for its work on walls and train-carriages. Apl315 collaborates with sprayers from Germany, France and Holland; arranging their meetings in train stations over the internet.

In fact, Apl315 studied entomology, with a specialisation in beetles, until he decided to jack in academic study and concentrate on art. The influence of his study of tiny creatures is writ large in his imagery.

Inside-outside is apl315’s first show in Germany, following successful shows in Warsaw and St Petersburg. The works were made during Apl315’s stay in Berlin in September-November. His work was not made any easier after he broke his leg fleeing from the Ukrainian railway police shortly before his arrival.
