Attack of the 50 Foot Socialite … Berlin Street Art

Great street art straight from Berlin, (c)ourtesy my friend Paul

A couple of years ago, Conde Nast Traveller called Berlin, “The world’s best street art  spot”, and it’s difficult to argue with that assessment. A myriad of artists from all over the world have been creating a kaleidoscope of street art across Berlin for decades, ranging in size and scale from a sticker on a lamppost to the side of a building. Walking around the streets, we regularly unearth extraordinary artworks. Tristan Eaton’s huge Attack of the 50 Foot Socialite, is just one example.

When it comes to street art, Berlin really is the gift that keeps on giving.

      • I have no desire to return to Berlin Brian, I took the Viking Tour in 2016 and cruised the Rhine from Bern down through the Moselle Valley region. I am dying to rerun.

      • I’m sure you do. We did a shorter route on the Rhine in the 80’s. From Mainz to Köln if I recall, Stopping overnight in quaint old villages. Name Andernacht pops in my mind. “Guten Abend, haben Sie eine Zimmer frei? Mit Früstuck?” 😉

      • Very creepy… 🙂
        (I also remember that on all maps the castles had a mention: castle such and such built… destroyed by the French in 16something!)
        I kept my French low…
        (I must confess I had to look up leid, désolé, and gebucht which I’d forgotten…) Thanks for the German brushup.)

  1. Hello Equinoxio. I am always amazed at the size of building art. To try to paint something that large and have it come out well is a grand talent. Hugs

    • Absolutely. There are several buildings in the South of Paris with the same size of street art. (Need to post more). Can you imagine the vision to paint something that large?

  2. Compelling title for your post – and compelling art, too. Berlin has for so long been a place for that raw, hedonistic creativity. I don’t so much “like” these pieces (not that I think that’s their purpose) as admire their audacity.
