POET73

 

Today Berlin is considered one of the graffiti capitols of the world with entire districts of the city covered in paint at every corner.  The story of how it all happened however is unlike that of any other city.  With The Wall dividing Berlin in two as graffiti culture exploded across Europe in the 80’s, Berlin writers in the east and the west were creating their own ideas of graffiti both aesthetically and ideologically.  No district in the city embraced graffiti and punk rock culture more than Kreuzberg, the home town and playground to our guest POET. Few cities in the world have gone through more changes since the birth of graffiti and POET has been there, can in hand, through it all.
