Item description for Berlin Street Art by Sven Zimmermann...
Street art is a phenomenon which exists across the world's urban centers. What was once regarded as a nuisance at best or vandalism at worst, is now increasingly being recognized as an important art form.
This book brings together the finest examples of street art in Berlin, a city bursting with artistic energy and expression. Working primarily at night, street artists leave their messages on building facades, mailboxes, advertisements, traffic signs and trash bins.
The author has spent many years photographing street art before it is erased by the authorities and he collects here the best work of the city's preeminent street artists.

Reviews - What do customers think about Berlin Street Art?
An enjoyable view into the Berlin Street Art scene Mar 30, 2007
Only a smaller book, but a good selection of documented material and examples of the street art scene in Berlin-one of the noticeably more bombed cities in Germany. I really enjoyed repeatedly browsing thru the book, and recommend it to all with an interest in wheat-pasting and stencil work, aswell as other graffiti appreciators.
