Adrià (1985) studied both graphic design and sculpture. After working for some years as an art director in Barcelona for adventising agencies, he moved to Berlin where he focused his attention in illustration and tattooing. His mix of disciplines can be found in the pursuit of balance between simple lines and volumes filled with textures, trademark of his work, which displays an interesting two-sided influence flavored with some recognizable elements of Surrealism and Medieval religious Art. At the Gat Point Charlie from February to April 2015.
Berlin breathes culture and history in every spot. And Gat Rooms has its own: Gat Point Charlie (Mauerstraße, 81-82), in the Mitte district and only 50 meters from the legendary Checkpoint Charlie.

Carlos Collado (Barcelona 1977) : “It moves me to observe people looking at something or someone. Perhaps it is because I identify with the person that stops to contemplate that which has caught their attention. I find that the attitude of observing the unknown and following it with the gaze reveals individuals as they truly are”. Magic Rooms & Compemplatio, are two series of photographs that were shown at the Gat Point Charlie Hotel between the 24th of September and the 29th of October 2014.
