Writing on the wall: “Art is my life …”

Art is my life

Quite an ‘arty’ statement: “Art is my life …” – but why end the message with three dots? Why not with an exclamation mark?! …we will probably never know, what the original artist intended to say…

A graffiti/tag on the wall of a Berlin bar by an unknown artist.

Graffiti in Mauerpark

Berlin Mauerpark Graffiti

Sunset at Mauerpark – the sunlight is reflecting in this graffiti on the graffiti wall in Mauerpark. The wall is not the Berlin Wall – but it was actually part of the border installations. So back in the days when Berlin was separated there was no way to get even close to this wall. Today it is open to the public – everybody is allowed to add her/his art piece to the collection. But please, when you’re done, don’t forget take your trash with you.

Writing on the Wall: Kultur

A small writing on the wall saying “Kultur” – the German word for Culture – found at the S-Bahn station Humboldthain in Berlin’s borough  Wedding. Mankind has always defined itself mostly through art – through culture: language, stories, texts, paintings, drawings, music etc. Some of the oldest proof of mankind are writings and drawings found on walls – for example the murals at the Lascaux Caves.
