Feature: El Bocho

El Bocho is one of Berlin’s more prolific and well-known street artists, whose paste-ups can be found all around Frie­drichshain, Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg. His ‘Citizen’ campaign de­picting fashionable young women looking morosely at the viewing public are in international demand and have spread to streets and galleries Paris, London and Sao Paulo. Among the more recent of his creations is the comic satire Little Lucy. These witty paste-ups are based on a Czech cartoon chro­nicling the adventures of a girl and her cat. In the hands of El Bocho, Little Lucy has taken a murde­rous turn and these days her cat can be found meeting a sticky and of­ten comedic end. Be on the lookout as well for Kalle und Bernd, two sardonic security came­ras who allow you to eavesdrop on their witty interludes but who serve as a harsh reminder of a time when secret police watched Berlin citizens very closely indeed. For a closer look at some of his work, head to Dirks­trasse in Mitte or Kollwit­zstrasse in Prenzlauer Berg.
