If you know about any of these than we do, please educate us ;-). If we have links to the artist’s pages and profiles we put them on the bottom of the page.
I love the colours on this angler-fish grafitti in Mauerpark
Interesting style on this Tasmanian devil, using light outlines instead of black. Location: Mauerpark
Another colourful and extremely well executed grafitti in Mauerpark.
Various & Gould painted their second large-scale mural right in our neighbourhood. You find their collage behind Oderbad at Oderberger Straße.
We’re not sure if this „Obey the giant piece at the elevated tracks of U1 at Hallesches Tor in Kreuzberg.
Same location but down by the water is this portrait in black and white. In the text someone with 1,20 € and a canned beer tries to convince this lady to come to his place
She looks a bit lonely, or maybe that is me, 2-colour-stencil found at Thielenbrücke between Kreuzberg and Neukölln.
Another portrait on a painted tile in Kreuzberg. The artist’s name seems to be Acetone, but that’s all we could find out on short notice.
In 2017 Kam Laurene, a duo of French artist, came back to Berlin to leave about 2 dozen of these golden-skinned people. I find them vaguely disturbing, even though they’re meant to be positive. All of them are unique and this one is in Köpenicker Straße.
I’m always happy to see styles that are a bit different. This one and the next are both from RAW and are both not so much about pleasing aesthetics but their message, whatever that may be.
Another DC super hero by lizart and a matching cat by lembo. I love when artists start these micro-communications throgh their work.
The one on the left is a bit of a puzzle. Even though it is signed „IAMKINGART“ I couldn’t find anything about it online. The one on the right would be identifiable as a piece by Bruno Smoky, due to the unique character design that is typical for the Brazilian artist.
This pasteup by Pilzator has clearly been around for a while. Not to be confused with SOPE, the other mushroom-themed Berlin artist.
Possibly by Areas Almeida (the guy who painted the giant cowboy at Cassiopeia a few years back. Whoever made it, we love this piece of a Japanese cow and a twisted robot.
Tobo is a regular at Mauerpark and his anthropromorphic characters all have an anarchic streak and a „don’t-fuck-with-me-„attitude that resonates strongly with Berliners, who always had a problem with authorities.
No comment, but rest assured there are quite some NSFW-selfies shot at exactly this spot on Köpenicker Straße flying around the internet.
ÜF Crew (on the right) are one of Berlin’s most extreme grafitti collecitives. They developed their own font – which I personally can’t read – and most of their pieces are vertically aligned. That means they rappel down from the roof with a rope. And they clearly have an opinion of gentrification and the like.
Unsigned by possibly another AUM, I found this not far from the other on a courtyard in Köpenicker Straße.
A strong, if unsigned piece about female sexuality as a commoditiy. At least that’s how I interpret this.
We couldn’t find out anything about the piece on the left, although it is clearly signed. On the right a piece by Victor Landeta aka AUM, who is most famous for a series of portraits depicting Nobel Peace Price Laureates on leftover segments of the Berlin Wall in Teltow.
