Berlin Street Art – Part 3

Berlin is a city that oozes street art, from professional paintings on the Berlin Wall, to murals on buildings and random surprises throughout the city. The most common form of street art found in Berlin is the hand drawn and painted, not always so legal kind. Welcome to Berlin, a living graffiti art gallery.
