Great colors, right? That is what attracted me in the first place! I went to an exhibition of Parra in Alice Gallery, an artist that I had never heard about before.

Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to art, but of course we are pretty spoiled in Brussels with all the museums and galleries. I visited just one museum in Berlin, but there’s a lot of street art to discover when walking through the city.
