THC Piece on Kochstraße

One of my favor­ite graf­fiti pieces in Mitte is this THC on Koch­straße / Check­point Charlie. I used to pass it every day for three months, and every day I’d ask myself: why is this piece so clean? How come nobody ever removed it from these pop­u­lar tour­ist attractions?

I don’t know why and I couldn’t care less; I love that it’s there. I’m not sure whether it used to be covered by a street art poster which was removed later (I found a photo of it here), or whether the poster was removed by the sprayer to do the piece…

  1. Pass it every­day !!! I guess its older than 3 years by now! It was there before that streetart poster im pretty sure. To bad the guy how made it is in prison!

  2. The Poster was a piece by french streetartist JR » http://​jr​-art​.net/ . I don´t like THC crew at all but I share your thoughts about the piece in this part of town and spot.

  3. Yeah I’m not really a fan of THC at all either but this piece is just “per­fect”, even the col­ors match their sur­round­ings. Thanks for the info on JR!

  4. I love the jux­ta­pos­i­tion of the graf­fiti beside the per­fect blue sign show­ing the dis­tances to tour­ist spots. Very cool shot!
