EvL, Edward von Longus in Wedding, Berlin

While walking in Wedding, a part of Berlin, last summer I came across three tall images by Edward von Longus, an Estonian street artist.  In fact, it’s his little hedgehog on a laptop graffiti that is sometimes at the top of this blog.

These are what I saw:

on a pillar in Wedding Berlin, an almost life sized in shades of grey, street art of a person that looks like Abraham Lincoln in a long robe

below: These figures are part of (R)estart Reality an app that facilitates combining street art and digital technology.  Apparently there were 100 ‘people’ in many European capitals with a story to tell to those who have the app.  The program began in June 2017 and I am not sure if it is still running. in shades of grey, street art of a person - a soldier sitting down, helmet on and gun in lap by Edward von Longus

It was in celebration of Estonia’s 100th birthday.

Cafe Cinema Courtyard, Berlin

The Cafe Cinema Courtyard starts as a small alley beside the Cafe Cinema off Rosenthaler Strasse close to the Hackescher Market. It is almost completely covered with street art of all kinds – painted murals, stickers, paste ups and more.

Tallinn is the capital city of the small Baltic country Estonia.  I was only there for a short time but I did find some street art in the old town and in Kalamaja.
