When I visited Berlin at the beginning of my summer holidays, I fell in love with the city. It has got such a rich history, so many beautiful buildings and on top of all that: great street art with a very positive message. When visiting Berlin you will pretty soon discover that the city is full of bears. They are literally on practical every street corner. These so called buddy bears have been inspired by the Zurich Kuh Kultur (see photo below), another colourful street art phenomenon.

The arms of the buddy bears are raised to symbolise spreading out friendliness and optimism.
The bears, painted by artists from all over the world, create a positive atmosphere under the following motto:
“We have to get to know each other better …
… it makes us understand one another better,
trust each other more, and live together more peacefully.”
East Side Gallery
This same positivity can be found on the painted Berlin wall known as the East Side Gallery. This gallery consists of 105 paintings by artists all over the world. They were painted in 1990 and express great hopes for a better, more free future for all people of the world.

I love many of the paintings of the East Side Gallery. This particular part is my favourite and you will understand why; I believe in small changes with huge effects as well.
