Bänke - Berlin
Bänke. Ink on Canvas. 11" x 17". The benches of the Warschauer Straße are a true bedrock of the skate scene in Berlin. Between the streetcar rails you can find a row of benches most every German skater has gotten a piece of. Nike fixed the benches some years ago. They fitted new metal to the benches so they’re easier to skate. Even the metal was made by a local skater named Jan Kliewer. After local residents complained from the loud noise of the metal caps, the benches are now back to their original raw grit. Part of an on-going series titled "Boarding Pass". "Boarding Pass" is a series of Posters celebrating some of Skateboarding's most iconic, beloved, and amazing skate spots, world wide.
