A tree grows in Wedding


I found this large mural just across from the Wedding S-Bahn station. It was painted in 2011 by artist Viktor Ash - I'm amazed it hasn't been tagged or defaced over time. I rather like the subject, although it could be more colorful for my taste. However Ash is known for his black and white murals and he's probably not going to change his style for me! It's Monday again and you'll find more murals at Monday Mural.

  2. It is rather stark but certainly attractive in its own way. I wonder what the kids are looking at. Oh, they're looking at all the people looking at them. I, too, think a little color would be helpful.

  3. Maybe a strange form of neighborhood security. I'd go to the art in Beijing show.

  5. I love Wedding ! I love the people there a real melting pot of many different traditions and nice and unexpected things to discover for people who are not native Berliner. And for the Americans we do not need security NSA is already doing the shitty business. Here no one has a gun.under his jacket.

  6. Nice one again although the 3 persons in the tree are not in scale with it and looked glued on here. A little pity for an in total nice mural with the Berlin rough side to it.

  7. Enjoyed the three people with binoculars. I don't think it matters if the people are not in scale with the tree…artist's license. It does't really matter.

  11. Fabulous! So neat that the billboards are carefully placed not to cover any of the artwork.

  12. I think I would prefer it in colour too but I can understand why an artist likes to keep his style consistent.

  13. In 1995, I photographed a tree whose silhouette was painted on the side wall of a building at the corner of Bd de Strasbourg and rue du Château d'Eau and I can see it still there when I visit Google maps. Long life to Viktor Ash's tree!

  14. Love this guy's stuff. You have to have incredible confidence to do such large scale work. Thanks for the link. And thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  16. I like it very much also Hal.. checked out his link, he's good. Maybe we can talk him into coming to Perth for our next big street art festival! It's amazing that the taggers seem to actually have some respect for these works, but not for other public and private property.

  17. This one is fantastic, Hal. Even in black and white. This is high praise for one who thinks most street murals are vandalism and who likes color.
