In most major European cities, graffiti is no longer considered as mere vandalism but as a form of art. And Berlin is the best choice if you’d like to see the freedom of graffiti art painted and sprayed on firm and rigid industrial design architectures and cement walls. The harmony of seemingly contradicting concepts is just beautiful.

Was it the previous existence of the Berlin Wall that inspired these street artists to express their voices, sometimes political, with vibrant colors that pop into the everyday lives of Berliners?

If you’d like to see more graffiti artworks than the ones on the walls, the recommendation is to go to Kreuzberg, the hip artistic heart of Berlin. You’ll discover yourself surrounded by street artworks no matter which street you walk in.
