BLU in Berlin

Shackled By Time and Take Off That Mask: Street Art by BLU in Berlin

If you’ve been to Berlin, the chances are you’ve seen BLU’s work. His Street Art murals are both visually striking and on a massive scale.

These pieces on Cuvrystrasse in Kreuzberg are visible from the Oberbaumbrücke and impossible to miss if you’re taking a boat trip along this part of the Spree.

BLU hails from Bologna in Italy and has been honing his Street Art since 1999.  He has travelled extensively and his paintings have adorned walls in Central and South America and the West Bank as well as numerous locations across Europe.

All of the pieces I have seen in Berlin have been in Kreuzberg.

You can see more of BLU’s work on his website and Facebook page and you should check out this incredible video of the artist at work on one of the Cuvrystrasse pieces.

Suicide Circus (Clown With 2 Uzis In His Mouth): Street Art by Primo in Berlin

I’ve trawled through the many hundred photos I took during my first trip to Berlin and added what I think are the best of the Street Art photos to a gallery here.

I intend to go through all my Berlin photos and create similar galleries for Street Art from 2010 and 2011 and will hopefully add some other galleries for pictures of the sights.
