It’s again that time of the year when I have to move, so unfortunately for all of us there won’t be much food posting in the coming weeks. However, there’ll be quite a few travel, tip and event posts coming up to keep your reading on. I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing.
That being said, let’s get down to the real deal. Who in here doesn’t like some good street art? Raise your hands please. Well then, keep on reading because I’m sure this will change your mind. While in Berlin we paid the usual visit to the East Side Gallery, and to our surprise, we found a bit more than just the remains of the Berlin Wall. Across from the Berlin Wall a big black van is parked, and on the side a wonderful display of the most astonishing little pieces of street art I’ve seen in a long time. 10€ a piece the street artist said from the inside of the van while he keeps on drawing.
Faruk Masri Vilca, this young street artist moved to Germany from a small town in southern Spain where he was living in search of better opportunities. With his van, his heart and his talent he’s making a living of what he loves, which is always inspiring as well as rare to encounter these days. You can find him and his mini street art gallery parked cleverly alongside the East Side Gallery, you’ll recognize it by the sign.
If you like what you see and you are not in Berlin, you can also contact him by googling his name, Faruk Masri Vilca, to order some of his street art and support him.
