West Berlin

West Berlin was enclosed inside a city where everyone else was trapped. It was a great place to live. People were encouraged to move there by cheap living costs. Many people, including artists of all sorts lived and were inspired in West Berlin.

Berlin on a whole is full of graffiti and the graffiti is in someways encouraged. Part of the wall was preserved and artists were invited to paint on it. This section of the wall is one of only a few remaining and stands as a graffiti gallery.

I went on an alternate tour of Berlin, one that showed a ton of artists and their art work.

I thought that was pretty cool.

One artist didn't really like cats. This is one of several examples.

Damn cats.

The inside of the artists residence.

These are different pictures found in the gallery on the wall.
