I just opened another category for the stock images section of Bilderbook: backgrounds. There you’ll find images that are suitable as a background image or background pattern – for websites, but also for print products.
This one almost looks like a flag, although it basically just shows, what in Berlin you would see everywhere: a wall – and some cobble sone pavement. Although – i have to admit that i was amazed how clean this wall looks like. Usually Berlin Walls are covered with Streetart – Graffiti and Tags – this one was probably just painted. So you could for example use this image as a canvas – to add your very own message on the wall – your very own virtual Graffiti.
In case you want to use the image – please feel free to purchase the appropriate license right here. Thank you!
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.
Somebody painted this park bench in rainbow colors. I am totally loving it. I mean – it’s not just ‘painted’ but actually somebody took the time and effort to either draw little drops, or maybe the paint was just of the right fluidity to draw the drop traces itself. However it was done – now it’s a great art piece.
Seen somewhere near Bernauer Strasse.
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.
A big LOVE as seen on a wall right next to the rails in Reinhardtstraße in Berlin-Mitte. Berlin loves you. Approved.
The photo may look like a collage, but it is actually only one photo. You can also find it here on my instagram account.
Another short graffiti / statement found in the streets of Berlin: “Youth”
Another piece of LOVE streetart – this time on top of one of these boxes you see in the streets all across Berlin – this one is probably a small transformer station.
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.
In Prenzlauer Berg the “Administrative Office for Citizens” (Bürgeramt / Bezirksamt Pankow Prenzlauer Berg) is located at Fröbelstrasse – a group of old brick buildings, that used to be a hospital. And this red brick chimney used to be part of the hospital too.
The HDR effect is a bit harsh, but – still – i liked the photo somehow. So here it is.
