This week in Berlin, we've been enjoying the last pleasures of summer
which included trips to the playground
hopscotch in the sun
and big German pretzels for breakfast.
As usual, I wandered around my neighborhood with my camera
noticing odd things like these acupuncture dolls
surreal golden heads that were part of a jewelry show
a glass vitrine on the street corner with a vintage book of pigeon illustrations
and an old cigarette machine transformed into sculpture.
And yes, it's official - I have become a street art junkie.
I don't feel much of a need to go to museums or galleries lately, it's more fun to just take a walk. This artist is one of my favorites.
In countless nooks and doorways, there is artwork to be found
and undefinable characters.
The walls and doors are covered with expression
and if you look a bit closer
you can find beautiful free form street collages
on every corner
just waiting to be discovered.
I will be posting more European Artist Spotlights soon - including friends in Berlin, Prague, and Lisbon - so be sure to come back to visit me.
I hope you had a great week, and I'm sending you sunny, late summertime greetings today from Berlin.
Enjoy your weekend, and I wish you lots of inspiration and fun exploration wherever you are!
