If you’ve ever been to Berlin, no doubt you will have noticed that the city is literally covered in (more or less) successful murals. Works by Blu, JR, Victor Ash or Various&Gould are inspirational, and lighten up a city scarred by an ongoing war against the past.
In London, murals are fewer (due to regulations, historical buildings and other reasons) but they are, usually, of a fairly good quality.
So who does it best? Is Urban Art a Germany thing or do the British do well enough? Here is my top 10 in the London vs Berlin Mural Match:
Murals – London vs Berlin
Mural by Os Gêmeos – Schlesisches Tor/Oppelner Strasse (Berlin)

Mural by Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) – Leake Street Tunnel (behind Waterloo Station)
