“As much as I enjoy the roller coaster,
sometimes I miss the cotton candy life.”
El Bocho is a Berlin based artist. He has been working on the streets since 1997 and is by now amongst the most famous and visible street artists in Berlin. Communication and references to urban life are the main components of his work. El Bocho considers himself as an observed observer. It is important to him to work outside the art scene, as this reaches an audience that does not visit art specific locations like galleries or museums. He picks up the reactions of the viewers and uses them in his works. This creates a constant flow of communication with the public.
El Bocho has appeared in national and international books, magazines, newspapers and exhibitions. The artist was featured in different TV shows, including German, Hungarian, Israeli, American and Hongkongese productions. In July 2009, El Bocho completed the world’s largest tape art piece in Berlin. 15.000 meter of tape were used on 1100m² at the front of the Stattbad in Berlin-Wedding. (Source: El Bocho)
