Quirky Monsters Playfully Occupy Abandoned Berlin Warehouses

Fun and Random



German street artist Kim Köster is doing the impossible—turning the typically scary content of monsters and abandoned buildings into interactive entertainment for children. Köster started by spray painting mischievous monsters in derelict warehouse sites outside of Berlin, allowing them to playfully interact with the surrounding architecture. Köster is now turning these works into an interactive children’s picture book called Monzter that gives kids a chance to play with these colorful creatures without having to wander into any creepy buildings.

The app invites the audience to reflect and laugh with the philosophical musings of children like, “Are ghosts able to see me?” and “How big is the sun?” The app is iPad compatible and available in the Apple app store.

Köster was born and raised in the North German village of Worpswede. Originally experimenting with drawing and watercolor, Köster moved into the graffiti scene. Like Monzter, he often employs new media within his work allowing for a wide public accessibility of his pieces. (via Geyser of Awesome)
