Why Street Art?
EyeEm believe that nowadays street art is not only an underground phenomenon anymore, but it defines urban spaces around the world. That’s exactly why shooting street art has become incredibly fascinating: there’s so much out there that „the street“ literally transforms itself into an artistic playground where numerous art forms collide. Whether it be a mural, stencil, graffiti, installation, sculpture, tag or some random act of artiness around the corner: capture what strikes you, tag it with streetart and upload it to the vibe.

Your Image on the Wall!
To make this incredible stream of street art become real, EyeEm decided to put up a special kind of exhibition. On Friday night, 18th of November, they’re going to project the vibe onto a house wall in Berlin. So what has been captured on streets all around the world will then come together and find a new home (for this night) on the streets of Berlin. T
