Berlin Street Art and Graffiti

A little piece of culture

If someone asks me to describe the capital of Germany, I will say Berlin is really unique. The city cannot be described with the ordinary definition of “beautiful” because it has its own charming. Berlin is unique, lively and creative in many aspects. With most of the citizens from many places around the world, Berlin is a melting pot of exotic cultures and living styles. It’s difficult to decide what to see in Berlin because there are SO MANY things that you should observe. In this article, I will focus on the very interesting perspective of this city – Berlin Street Art and Graffiti!

Berlin Wall

Thanks to its popularity, Berlin Wall is one of the must-see-attractions if you visit the capital of Germany. It was built to divide Berlin from 1961 to 1989 into two parts: East Berlin and West Berlin.

When the Wall was taken down, many artists have used it as an art gallery for exhibition. Walking along Berlin Wall, I can see the creativity and exceptional contribution of artists. Here are some pictures from my discovery.

My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love

You surely cannot miss this iconic graffiti “My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love” by Dmitri Vrubel. This artwork is also referred as “Fraternal Kiss”. It is one of the most well-known murals in the Berlin Wall Galery.

You can find this mural around the middle of East Side Gallery wall. After the restoration in 2009, the fenced was put in front of the mural to protect it from destruction.
