The Berlin districts Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain boast graffiti, paintings, paste-ups, and stencils. From the 1970s to 1989 the west side of the Berlin Wall was home to graffiti, paintings and wall newspapers. Since the reunification of Germany, Berlin has become home to a community of international street artists. The area's ramshackle buildings and blind walls gave rise to a vibrant street art scene. It has become one of Europe's street art strongholds. A stroll through the Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain districts will yield a bounty of public art. In recent years street art has even been featured in Berlin exhibitions. But the streets of the city remain the best showcase. What makes it more fun is that there's always the risk the art will disappear.
