street art

I have a love-hate relationship with Berlin's street art.  There's a slightly wild feeling to the place - graffiti everywhere - some of it's breath-takingly beautiful but most of it's just plain ugly.  I know all big cities have graffiti, but there seems to be more of it here and I sometimes wish there was less of the tagging and more of the art.  Perhaps I could convince Miso (Stanislava Pinchuk) to do an exhibition in Berlin?  Miso creates street art inspired by Urkranian folklore for Melbourne's streets.   I love it - fellow Melbourne blog readers, if you spot any of her stuff around Degraves Street I'd love a photo!  You'll be handsomely rewarded, promise!

Wow Clare ... great pictures. I've seen some really amazing street art and actually have to pull over and study it! But then, scribbles and such can be really annoying.
Have a great day Clare.

There is so much tagging in Berlin isn't there! It is all over the place.
