that was fixed on the house front in 2004 to demonstrate against rent increase and a change of living conditions.



Did you see the Black-Red-Gold colours (we have on our federal flag), accidentally created by the black light bulb holder, the goldish yellow bulb and the red light? That was certainly NOT the intention of the street artist to create such a context... ;-)


Street art meets narrow-minded smugness...
...two sides of the same coin nowadays???


Name of a fish & chips stall at Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin.


No idea how many great street art motifs already disappeared for ever when a building is fully renovated.
So I'm really curious how many of my motifs I'm going to find again the next time I will visit Berlin.


top and bottom: two of my favourite motifs I found:

John Lennon in interaction with the two guys busily engaged in writing text messages with their mobiles

and

never-to-be-forgotten Rick (Humphrey Bogart) and Ilsa (Ingrid Bergmann) in
Michael Curtiz romantic drama film Casablanca.



You find Little Lucy in nearly all variations (the one I took is one of the most harmless motifs) everywhere on Berlin's walls...


Street art motif and the ravages of time


Two different interpretations of womanhood I found in the streets of the Prenzlauer Berg locality.

  1. Wow! I love anything that has art in it and I love it even more when I find a photographer who does full justice to its beauty! This is incredible, I checked the other post that you shared with me as well, I totally adore works that intrigue and inspire. Thank you so much for sharing, Uwe! Wish you a great day ahead.

  2. A wonderful collection of street art. Art should not be hidden away in galleries. Tom The Backroads Traveller
