A little look at Berlin street art - with the knowledge of how it is both discouraged and encouraged in Berlin's culture. Street art is illegal but it is still a vibrant part of Berlin's "architecture." Here is a look at a few pieces I photographed on 18 March 2013 on a tour by www.alternativeberlin.com and then a look at what I created in their street art studio that same afternoon. (It was never put up in the street so it is completely legal. :) That evening we attended a Fulbright event at one of the Berlin symphony halls and I was surprised to see that the designers chose graffiti art to hang in one of their reception areas. Street art seems to be in a love/hate relationship with the people and culture of Berlin; it's fascinating.
