ODEM of SOS Crew Berlin was more than an iconic figure in the graffiti movement in the 80’s and 90’s and inspired many future generations with his approach to stylewriting and graffiti culture. We grew up with his book ODEM: ON THE RUN, the book was and still is like a bible for many writers and one of the most read books on German graffiti ever. His stylism mission published in the SPRAY CITY – Graffiti in Berlin Book inspired many graffiti writers from all over Germany and had a big impact and influence! ODEM´s writing career was a stylistic embodiment of 90’s Berlin writing culture and his swinging letterstyle influenced many and helped create the typical Berlin style of the glory days of the 90’s and to today.
On this sad morning today as many graffiti artists from Berlin and hundreds of social media posts from Germany tell us that stylemaster ODEM SOS from Berlin have passed away.
We are stunned and shocked by the loss of one of the most important graffiti writers of Europe. Our sympathy goes to the family and close friends of Petar ODEM Kundid.
ODEM – 1973-2016 – REST IN PEACE
