StreetArt Leipzig

 

I took a walk around Westwerk last weekend and was amazed by the density of street art just in the vicinity of this building in the neighborhood of Plagwitz in Leipzig.

Merely by walking around the building, you can find all sorts of different works from different artists.

The most obvious would be graffiti, but also artists working with stencils, stencils on paper, wood blocks, tapes and vinyl. Some of which carry political statements, others are just pieces of art as such.

I evens saw some lego pieces placed between the gaps of bricks, or larger figures that reminded me of the quite well known spaces invaders works of a French artist. In addition to that you can find quite a number of simple tag like pieces all around Leipzig. One of them, that reminds me in the structure of a version of the twin peaks symbol was even the reason for a local to write a book about her pursuit of trying to track down the artists …. which eventually failed but made her write this book nevertheless.

Another quite striking work for me was a spider sprayed on a large transparent foil stretched between two scaffolding bars.

A walk around Westwerk is certainly worth it, especially as you can combine it even with a visit to the local flea market and one of the many bars and restaurants close by.
