3 – Knowledge and Discovery

Ultimately, aside from the mesmerizing visual effects of the street art, you will find yourself richer with knowledge and perhaps even a newly acquired taste for art. It is practically impossible not to find yourself fascinated and immersed into the evocative world of Berlin street art and graffiti. You may even go into it completely ignorant of all the techniques, styles, and artists, but you will leave the tour with at least one or more new favorite creators and artworks. And even if, somehow, none of the pieces find their way to your heart, at least you will come to know the difference between a stencil and a painting, between a tag and a graffiti, you’ll be able to tell a mural from other techniques of street art and discern the differences and similarities between some of the best artists in the biz.
