Picture stories: art in cologne

First city in Germany! Cologne is very cool. With A large student population the city has a very mellow vibe, some nice museums and some very cool art tucked away around corners and in driveways.

This next is a lot more whimsical. The French artist “invader” has taken on the challenge of posting space invader art in as many countries as possible. He has a website and, basically an empire, at this point.
I also went to some place called koblhalle which was an amazing artists collective. I talked to a few of the artists living there, people come from lots of places; England, Argentina and, you know, Germany. It was like walking through a living antique market full of the greatest finds.
