Berlin Wall Art

I was in Berlin a few weeks ago and had a whicked great time. There's some seriously good wall art in that city--both on a section of the Berlin Wall itself that was turned into the "East Side Gallery" as well as sick graffiti. The first three pics are from the East Side Gallery, where various artists were given sections of the wall.
the famous Brezhnev-Honecker "Brotherly kiss". 
doves...with the Brandenburg Gate
"No-man's land"
"Detour to the Japanese Sektor"

This last picture is of a massive graffiti project right next to the Spree, the river in Berlin. I met up with a friend from a summer program on my free Saturday afternoon and she brought me here, it's real close to the East Side Gallery. Across the river are a couple of big business buildings with a lot of white collar jobs (actually, her boyfriend works for one of them) and the graffiti artists decided to use these walls to send the message that those jobs are enslave you with their materialistic bribes and promises. The message kinda backfired though...apparently the businesses just think it's really cool artwork and brag about being across the river from it....The other funny story is that just a week before I was in Berlin, an old bomb from World War II was found in the river directly between this graffiti and the office buildings and they had to have an emergency team deactivate it. Crazy stuff.
