Blank walls are shared and democratic canvases that allow people to express themselves through art. Street art is contemporary and often reflects the zeitgeist. Berlin’s graffiti, in particular, has a story to tell, of the wall that separated East and West Germany. And when the wall fell in 1989, artists from a unified Berlin expressed themselves through graffiti, turning the city into Germany’s street art capital.
German street artists have visited India on a personal level and have literally left a piece of themselves behind. They’ve also come here by invitation from the German Embassy New Delhi or the consulates as part of Indo-German collaborations like the celebration of the year of Germany in India. What’s Up, Germany? brings you a selection of captivating street art that speaks of Indo-German friendship.
