Berlin Street Art Vol 5 – Various Artists

It’s time for another Pick n Mix of the best Berlin Street Art I have seen recently from a variety of artists.

As in previous posts in this series, you can click on an artist’s name to see more of their work if they have featured before on andBerlin.

C215

C215 has appeared here a number of times with work in Berlin and in London.  He never disappoints.

Mein Lieber Prost

If you’ve walked around Berlin, you’ve walked past a piece by Mein Lieber Prost – his smiley faces are everywhere.  If you’re lucky you’ve also seen his adbusting interventions.

Robi The Dog

Swiss Street Artist Robi The Dog was in Berlin earlier this year and his bright paste-ups were an instant hit with me.  It’s great to see some new work from him in the city.

Sueña

I have seen a number of pieces in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg recently with the tag Sueña and this Roy Lichtenstein inspired piece was my pick of the bunch.  A 10-minute trawl on Google failed to turn up any info about the artist though.

A Tribute To Prost

A Tribute To Prost (screenshot from the video)

The team behind Berlin Spricht Für Sich, the fantastic Street Art inspired music video that featured in my A Year In The Life Of Berlin post also created a A Tribute To Prost.

This is a song and video based on the Street Art of Mein Lieber Prost, best known for his smiley faces that adorn the streets of Berlin.

East Cross Project x Emus Primus – A Tribute To Prost

Unfortunately, I read recently on Mogli-Oak Berlin that Mein Lieber Prost has run into some difficulties with the Polizei.  In order to raise some money for his defence, Prost will be hosting ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, ONE AND ONLY PROSTIE PARTY at Kater Holzig on 13 December and Emus Primus will be performing. You can read the full post on Mogli-Oak Berlin here.

Smiley Face: Street Art by Mein Lieber Prost (often shortened to Prost) in Berlin

I have seen the smiley faces and people of Berlin-based Street Artist, Mein Lieber Prost (often shortened to Prost) on the streets of Berlin since I first visited the city in 2009.  His simple but effective drawings and occasional advertising takeover antics always bring to mind the phrase ‘Smile and the world smiles with you…’.

A number of his pieces appeared during a spree with ALIAS (see my post ALIAS: Busy in Berlin) and TONA (see my post about him here).
