My Berlin friend comes with a surprise for the weekend. Guests are welcome irrespective of whether or not they are going to bring gifts. It seems that Drew Straker aka THE MURALIST, graffiti artist based in Perth, Australia, is in Berlin. He has left some gifts in Friedrichshain. Straker probably was the first artist to use the ’neon glow‘ technique in his pieces, which means white lines under a transparent color and also the white only on black giving an almost negative effect. That gives his pieces the effect of a light installation with neon lights.
