I Use Photos Of Berlin Wall Splinters As Background For My Drawings

There is a remaining part of the Berlin wall in the Mauer Park, district of Prenzlauerberg. For decades graffiti artists have colored this historic piece of concrete, trying to turn something horrible into beauty. They can. Tireless, they express all sorts of questions with shapes and colors.

From time to time, the overlapping layers of paint begin to weigh and collapse. The peeling paint brings years of multicolored and unique history.

My prying eyes did not let these details pass. Fascinated by the diversity, culture, and history of the Berlin city where I’ve lived since 2011, I photograph the everyday landscapes of the German capital. Attracted by the colors and textures, I began to photograph these small pieces of colorful drawings that are no longer.

I use the photos of the Berlin wall splinters as background for my mixed media drawings. I make cuts and digital collages contrasting the brutality of the concept that the wall transmits, the infinite colors, the feminine power, and the delicacy of the animals in my own way.

I hate the Berlin Wall for all it represents in history, for the suffering it inflicted on so many people, for the deaths, for ignorance, brutality, and arrogance. But I love the bits of it, so colorful, so inspiring, so delicate.

Berlin does that to me.

And I think it’s great. Take a look at the resulting unique art.

Visited The Wall July '89. Recognized the section I'd touched & photographed on the news 9 Nov. '89. Still get chills when I see a piece.
