Murals, graffiti, 3D
Have fun with our collection of new Berlin street art, from Tegel to Neukölln. All Infos about the artwork in the captions, or on our regular Street Art bike tour, which we also offer in German. As always we weren’t able to identify all artists shown here, so of course you’re very welcome to educate us and close any existing knowledge gaps. If availabe we included a list of links on the bottom of the gallery, so you can enjoy even more street art goodness.
Neukölln Street Art
Stair case on the back of the Kindl centre for contemporary art. The project « Meine Welt gemeinsam gestalten » ~ « To collectively shape my world », this project involved numerous locals to shape the concrete stair case at the corner of Isar- and Neckarstraße
On the side of Kindl Treppe we find this colourfull piece reminiscent both of hippie aestethics and traditional African designs.
This might be a pug on drugs or something completely different, found in a side street in Rixdorf, Neukölln.
Beautiful nude by makes one in Neukölln
I must admit, i found this mural a bit disturbing.
Psychedelic giant frog in front of Rütli campus. The school became infamous for the rate of crime and mobbing, but today is a positive example of how to turn situations like that around: by coming together and creating alternatives.
Senor Schnu has bee super busy over the last weeks, according to a report by RBB he created over a 1.000 pieces in the winter and then distributed them in only two weeks.
Murals/Street Art at Haus Schwarzenberg
Mural by Age Age aka Hannes Höhlig for IFEX at Haus Schwarzenberg. IFEX is an NGO promoting the freedom of expression through art as a universal human right.
Very clever bit by Otto Schade aka Osch where two skulls form a butterfly. Spotting his work is pretty simple a lot of the time. In most cases he creates his work using coloured bands
Collab by Liz.Art and Osch: bat signal and cat woman
These days Ron Miller is mostly doing commercial work, so its a bit special if you find uncommissioned work by them. Found this Geisha in Haus Schwarzenberg
War is over – at least according to this rather disturbing mural in Haus Schwarzenberg featuring John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Another mural by an as of yet unidentified artist in Haus Schwarzenberg.
Pretty deep, eh? 3D piece in Haus Schwarzenberg; a prison shaped like a smartphone
One Wall projects by Herakut, Nuno Viegas, Tankpetrol and Queenkong in Tegel
One Wall project organized by Urban Nation – Berlins first urban art musem – in the Tegel Art Park by Berlin residents Herakut and Nuno Viegas: « I will not let you down ».
Detail of the « real recognizes real »-mural by Herakut and Nuno Viegas
And a view from the other side
Another collaboration for a ONE WALL project in Tegel. « 2268 miles & Luchadore PAchamama » by Tankpetrol and Queenkong is about the realtionshiop between man and nature according the urban nation website. For me though it is a statement for strong feminity, showing that women don’t have to conform to male expactations of who and what they should be, but I’m an old feminist.
Mural in Tegel
MISC Berlin Street Art summer 2019
Classical graffiti piece in Mauerpark – just moments before.
Oh come on, China, surveillance is so 1984
Paste-Uop by Senor Schnu with his typical moustached popsicle. Found in Dircksenstrasse, one of Berlin Mitte’s remaining places for brilliant street art. On the left is an old one by El Bocho, showing Little Lucy in the process of beheading a cat.
In Kreuzbergs Bergfriedstrasse you’l find one of Ron English’s typically ripped super-babies as a giant mural
The artist Fankapan almost always incorporates these silver balloons in his work, always remeinding me a bit of Jeff Koons, so in a was this is a double Hommage.
Hidden in a park in Berlin Mitte behind a grille we found this older piece by El Bocho, one of his larger female portraits, that always exude a sense of melancholy and being a bit lost. This one says « Still Falling… »
A classic, Little Lucy beheading kitty. We still don’t why Lucy hates the cat so much, but it must be something deep.
Not sure if this actualy a piece by the « bird crew » or someone else, but I really like how expressive it is, even though all sentiment is created only very few lines.
I know, I should know this artists name but right now it escapes me.
