Of course, I know very well that we are in December and that tomorrow is St. Nicholas. It couldn’t go on forever with this mild weather! But I have taken precautions for such dark and wet days, when you don’t send a dog out the door. How about something tropical, like a jungle, for example? […]

After the walls of Steele station were artfully spruced up some time ago, the three pillars at the subway between the station and Steele city centre have now also been redesigned.The Immediate city centre Programme, which is funded by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Municipal Affairs, Building and Equality of the State of North Rhine […]

Kurt Schumacher Straße connects the Gelsenkirchen districts of Schalke and Buer. It is incredibly long; the longest street in the city of Gelsenkirchen. And, in my opinion, incredibly desolate. It is characterised by ancient industrial plants, newer commercial areas, endless rows of houses and never-ending traffic noise. If you look around for colour, you have […]

You must not let it out of your sight for too long, otherwise you won’t find even the really good pieces untouched.

Birthday parties in the circles of graffiti artists are always colourful events and when a birthday also coincides with Halloween, then no wishes remain open for the street art spotter. I hadn’t visited the graffiti tunnel in Duisburg Meiderich since July; I should have known what to expect. But I wasn’t prepared to find the […]

Well finally! I lost count of how long it took to photograph this mythical creature. I think it’s a griffin and I just love it. For about a year I’ve waited to take a photo, but it was always concealed by a parked car. What lasts long becomes good after all. Unfortunately I don’t know […]

In 2019, the artist Stefan Marx participated in the „Ruhr Ding“ with three monochrome murals in Dortmund, Bochum and Essen. The three murals form a triptych that symbolises the past, present and future of the Ruhr region. The façade of the IKK at Burgwall 20 was already artistically designed with a mural before. I took […]
