Überliner is a creative collective based in Berlin, Germany. We work across the fields of art, architecture and design. We began working together professionally in 2010 and currently have 4 permanent members. Simultaneously, we draw from a pool of more than 40 international specialists, depending on the nature of the assignment: Sculptors, Builders, Illustrators, Painters, Designers, Urbanists, 3D Printing Specialists, Manufacturing and Casting Specialists, Advertisers, etc. Überliner's working practice seeks to create pieces of reality. Our particuar background and specific focus on Miniature Painting has sharpened our eye to the detail that can be scaled up infinitely. Überliner cultivates a working practice that is interdependent and collaborative, seeking to actively identify relevant projects that will often result in successfull, surprising, highly innovative collaborations and outcomes.
