12ozProphet Exclusive: BPLA Spraycation in Berlin

By - Tuesday, July 14th, 2015


After having fun with Urban Nation in Berlin for a week documenting their Project M8 (covered here) we joined up with several writers that were brought out by BPLA (Below Poverty Level Artists) to have some fun around the city. The trip included a handful of DMS members from Los Angeles to New York: SKID, TALE, GNS, N8, Los Angeles based COSMOE OTR, Oakland based MINE and New York Based SAVS. The trip was packed with MANY close calls with cops as well as a couple of the guys getting picked up (Skid being arrested in photo below) for a day in Berlin. Their adventures took them an espsestoss filled abandoned hospital directly on the line where the Berlin Wall stood. And it wouldn’t be a trip to Berlin without hitting the east and west sides of the walls which required a heavy effort of looking out. We also noticed there was some fun random tags the fellas did around town. The graffiti scene of Berlin is very close to what the United States looked like in 1993 not to mention the oldest piece we saw running was from 1991!! The cities level of respect for other writers is quite astonishing too as everyone tries to out do each other by climbing higher and higher or using giant rollers to go around other pieces. Check out the madness that happened between all the beers we had. Stay tuned for our coverage of the BPLA crew in Amsterdam!
