You don’t have to walk more than a few blocks in Berlin and you will find it – graffiti. This form of art has me confused - I’m not really sure how I feel about it. Most of the time I’m annoyed that the brilliant European cities that I love are covered in graffiti - it actually enrages me. However I also see that some of it is absolutely beautiful and oozes creativity - as well as normally being clever which I greatly appreciate. But for some reason in Berlin I leaned on the ‘pro’ side of the fence. As I walked throughout the city the graffiti captivated me. Colorful scenes were painted out on drab run down buildings, clever messages were in places you least expected them. For some reason graffiti looked good in Berlin.
As I walked around the city as a tourist – I found some great designs and placement that caught my eye. It’s hard not to. Here are some of my favorites.
