  • Street of the Paris Commune

    Quite a large four storey mural on Straße der Pariser Kommune, Friedrichshain, just across from S Ostbahnhof. I get the impression that there was another face on the right hand wall but this was too faded to make out properly. http://bit.ly/1sgSzQk http://flic.kr/p/nAXEhc

  • Tree children mural

    I came across another Victor Ash mural today while walking through Wedding. This is quite close to the S-bahn station and seen across the court of a petrol station. It seems to be a tree where three children are watching with binoculars. ( http://bit.ly/1j9ejZ1 ) http://flic.kr/p/nzAzix

  • Anne Frank street art

    Anne Frank street art Anne Frank portrait by the English artist Jimmy C. on the wall outside the exhibition ( or Anne Frank Zentrum – http://bit.ly/1ljx7ZP ).

  • Pink Man by Blu

    “The Pink Man” is a mural by the Italian street artist ‘Blu’. Painted in 2007, it is at the western end of the Oberbaum Bridge in Kreuzberg. The five storey tall monster is made from lots of smaller humans, one of which he appears to be about to eat. http://flic.kr/p/ncGcWE

One depicting an unmasking my two figures making East and West signs with their hands, the other a business man adjusting his tie with a gold chain between […]

  • Round Heads by Nomad

  • The Lads by London Police

    The Lads by London Police The London Police have a very distinctive style ( http://bit.ly/R0fAeM ). “The Lads” appears on a wall which looks like it is the background to a kids playground at the corner of Cuvrystrasse and Wangelstrasse in Kreuzberg. http://flic.kr/p/nrsyBe
