Walls of Berlin (2): Berlin wall art.

In our latest blogpost, we told the sad story of the Berlin wall as we saw it during our recent (December 2014) city trip (https://ourworldheritagebe.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/walls-of-berlin-1-the-berlin-wall/). While that post might have been slightly depressing, I am glad to announce that this one is much more heart-warming and colourful. When we strolled down the streets of Berlin, we observed the city’s impressive street art scene. Although most of the artworks can be found on walls (even on “the” wall), we also found some other street art forms that aren’t wall-bound, and even some that aren’t even two-dimensional… We were also glad to find some magnificent works of our favourite street artist: ROA (from our home town of Ghent).

For the remaining part, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…
