El Bocho on the streets of Berlin

Walking between Hackescher Markt and Alexanderplatz this afternoon I came across some new paste-ups by Berlin-based street artist, El Bocho. El Bocho has been putting up work on the streets of Berlin since 1997 and anyone who has wandered around central Berlin is sure to have seen some of his art. His most recognisable character […]

Vhils – Go Forth: Street Art in Berlin

Stadtbad Prenzlauer Berg

I have been fascinated by the Stadbad Prenzlauer Berg (or Stadtbad Oderberger) on Oderberger Strasse since my first trip to Berlin in 2009 when I tried to wander into the building whilst it was being set up for a Swap Market event sponsored by Skyy Vodka. At that time I didn’t realise that the building was […]
