Love Vandal: Bright And Cheery

Reader Natalie took these on Windmill Lane near her home in Dublin, Ireland. “Graffiti artists regularly tag this street and the guardai (police) have given up on policing the vandalism,” she wrote us. “It began as a homage to the band U2 who recorded their first albums in a recording studio on this street. Now, many of the U2 references are gone and the walls of this alley are tagged with any number of things. Considering the usually garish and gang related things that end up on these walls, these two pictures were pretty sweet.”

Berlin Wall Graffiti Art Becomes Fashion

Daniel Rodan, a leather fashion designer to celebrities like Tina Turner and David Hasselhoff, has turned Germany’s painful Cold War past into fashion. He recently unveiled a collection of Berlin Wall art-themed clothing to mark the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the destruction of the Cold War barrier. Rodan features graffiti art from the East Side Gallery, a 4,265-foot expanse of the Wall that was decorated in 1990 by 118 artists from 21 countries, on leather dresses and men’s garments. One mini-dress, according to Reuters, features an East German automobile smashing through the concrete Berlin Wall. The leather collection will be worn by well-known musicians and athletes at events prior to the anniversary celebrations on Nov. 9, and after that, the clothes will be auctioned for charity. “Bringing together these three things: the political event, fashion design, and the art of the East Side Gallery, and then making sure the clothes fit on the celebrities — it was a real challenge,” Rodan said at a news conference. Even though it was challenging, Rodan’s collection is evidence that beauty can come from something painful. Berlin cabaret artist Chin Meyer spoke about the collection: “It’s great that we can now have fun with things which previously were simply a catastrophe.” [Reuters] Keep reading »
