Berlin Street Art and Murals

I am ridiculously behind on writing about my visit to Berlin. There is so much to write about that I need to break it down into different subjects so it doesn’t become an extremently long blog post.

This one is of course about some of the street art I have seen around the streets of Berlin. I encounter more art on the streets in the East side neighbourhoods than where we are staying now in Wedding.

When we returned from Rotterdam a few weeks ago I discovered there is an app for the Berlin Mural Festival, which happened at the end of May shortly before we arrived. I was surprised to learn their festival was in its first year, but I guess plenty of murals have been produced without a driving force behind it.

The two crow stencils were located in the same area, and were a pleasant surprise to come across. We need crow street art in Vancouver. 😉

This is but a small taste of the many murals, stencils, paste-ups, and random bits of graffiti I’ve come across so far in my wanderings around the city.
