Berlin Street Art: El Bocho
Little Lucy and her poor, poor cat.
If you're a lover of street art, you can't go wrong with Berlin. In almost every corner of the Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg districts, you will find paste-ups/poster art and graffiti pieces, providing some much-needed colour and contrast against the grey walls that occupy the city.
My favourite was seeking out the work of El Bocho. Inspired by a character from a 1970's Czech TV series “Little Lucy fear of the Streets", his Little Lucy series sprawls the city, and beyond. In the artworks, Lucy is portrayed as a young girl obsessed with killing her cat and is often featured doing so in a number of different devious scenarios. Her slain cat will also be located nearby (within 50 metres of any Little Lucy you find around Berlin).
Another El Bocho character, Tina Berlina, found near Alexanderplatz - Located next to a It's Time to Dance Project piece.
Asides from cute cartoon characters, El Bocho's other artwork can also be found scattered throughout the city.
