Berlin Graffiti Artists Are Covering Up Hateful Swastikas In Creative Ways

This group of Berlin street artists was getting tired of seeing swastika graffiti around their city.

How did this group of artists respond? They fought back with love and humor. The movement is called #PaintBack and involves transforming hateful Nazi symbols into something funny or beautiful.

The project was started by street artist Ibo Omari of Die kulturellen Erben e.V.. He considers them to be neighborhood activists, so doing something about the swastika graffiti was only natural.

The artists behind the project turn the hate symbols into everything from a mosquito to bunny, cat, flower, four leaf clover, and Rubik's cube.

Of course, we noticed that so far, no one has used the most obvious cover-up design-- where is the Windows 95 logo? Clearly, this group of artists is missing a key component of their portfolio.

You can follow the #PaintBack movement on Instagram.
