Melina Berg was born in 1994 and grew up in Medebach. From an early age, she was interested in painting, drawing and the world of colours and participated in the first street painting contest in her hometown when she was only five years old. Since then Melina is taking part in this festival every year and always won the first prize in her age group. Since 2007 the young artist also paints at international street art festivals in Germany and the Netherlands reaching good placements. In 2001, she trained as a graphic designer in Bielefeld, Germany, but kept on being active in street painting. The same year, Melina successfully took part in a competition in Marktredwitz called “Buntes Pflaster” and one year later went to the famous Madonnari festival in Grazie, Italy, together with her father, the streetpainter Wilfried Berg.
