There's been a lot of new street art popping up in our neighbourhood lately and some of it is really pretty, so I thought I'd share. Maybe Wedding is really becoming the new hip district, like everyone has claimed for years. *lol*

Stadtbad Wedding, a former swimming pool that has recently been transformed into an art/event space. All the art on the front is done with tape!





Someone scrawled all kinds of silly chalk graffiti on the building, including things like "I ♥ digestion." *lol* This one was my favourite:



Then someone painted amazing things on the old industrial buildings along the Panke, like these:





The photos don't really do them justice. For example, this one looks like some sort of cave painting:





There's also your normal, silly graffiti, of course:





This one is in the stairway of our house, painted with either dirt or something I don't want to think about, and it genuinely creeped me out the first time I saw it. (It says "Death is near, amen" - in an environment where 99,9% of graffiti are badly spelled names and notes by the local kids, this was just really weird.)



And some that are not from Wedding, but that I came across in other places:





In fannish news, [livejournal.com profile] shiroi_chi got me to watch "Band of Brothers" (I can't even say why I've not seen it before, considering I love war movies) and I might be a bit in love already. Unfortunate side effect: when I was woken up by a bad thunderstorm this morning, my brain refused to parse the sounds as anything but bombs for a few minutes. /o\ Not a good way to start the day.

The pig is so much more awesome when you see it "live". I wish photos would do it justice.

I bet 2.000 starbucks-cakes with you that it really *was* Brad Pitt who wrote it! :D

Ja, das ist wohl jetzt so eine "Event-Location", letztens war da eine Ausstellung und es sollen weitere veranstaltet werden, und Parties und so. Guckst du hier. (http://www.iheartberlin.de/de/2009/06/02/art-and-party-at-stadtbad-wedding/) ;)

Als ich das das erste Mal gesehen hab, war ich auch total fasziniert!

the art is so pretty and the silly ones are ♥ someone wrote a paper on Klosprüche and what form of communication they are, I think the same should be done with Graffiti. I think that'd be really interesting. (maybe it's already been done lol)

Oh and I really like the A bit more ♥ On the other hand it's like... Wow Maria is the only girl up there. And she's not even a "real" godess. :I lol (even though, I really ♥ Maria back! lol)

I'm pretty sure that's already been done. ;) It IS super interesting, though!

Wow Maria is the only girl up there.
Yeah, true. :-/ But that's major religions for you...

Band of Brothers ♥ Didn't Bambie have a small role in it?

He did! :D But I'm not at that point yet.

(Embarrassing confession: I couldn't remember his name last night. There was a German prisoner who looked like him and I was all "Oh, is that... is that... whatshisname... the Apollo guy from BSG?" Fail.)

I must admit I only found out about it after I had watched it and I couldn't remember who he was at all. *g*

(LOL. It's okay to blank out every now and then.)

Thanks for the pics! That's some amazing art. I'm fascinated by those lizard/slug/worm looking things with the red dots? Really imaginative.

Yeah, I love those as well! :D

Wow, that's all tape? So cool!

I love seeing art in unexpected (or even expected) places around cities. :)

When you say tape, do you mean like, duct tape?

From: [identity profile] scatterheart.livejournal.com
More like gaffer, but yeah, sticky tape that you wouldn't normally use for that kind of thing! :D

Man, I live in the wrong part of Wedding! :D The graffiti around Seestr./Rehberge is not that attractive...

You really do! But if we're going to become the new OMGTRENDY!!1 district, I'm sure you'll get some nicer graffiti as well. ;)
