Walking around the city with some newly-made friends from IES, we passed an artist drawing a landscape of Berlin on the sidewalk. I stopped to take a picture, and was about to walk away when what I learned in Photojournalism class kicked in and I decided to stop to talk to him.
Martin Zill is a street artist in Berlin. According to him, some years ago street art was very popular, but he hasn’t seen very much of it recently. He uses chalk and charcoal to draw on the sidewalks. His art doesn’t have any deeper meaning, he just sees pictures in his head he likes to realize.
