Berlin street art graffiti The artist who made that large face did it by first digging into the plaster of then putting gun powder into the ridge, then plastering over the wall again, then setting off the gun powder.

"The popularization of graffiti through street art has been picked up by commercial brands as a subversive marketing tool. In Berlin this has materialized in the form of Levi’s collaboration with Portuguese street artist Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils as part of the company’s ‘Go Forth’ Campaign.

"Using the unconventional tools of drills and explosives, the portraits of four local figures were etched into selected walls throughout the city over the summer. Selected for their varied contributions to the community were Joe Hatchiban, host of Mauerpark’s famous outdoor karaoke shows, photographer and Berghain doorman Sven Marquardt, socio-political art duo Various & Gould and immigrant youth worker Fadi Saad."
