… and it was a nearly perfect day in the south side of Essen, up to the moment when I came across my favorite tunnel for pedestrians. Favorite because of the squirrels, which populated that tunnel since 2015. My little friends have changed territory. I hope they will be back sometime. I miss them sorely. […]

This time Hall of Fame Villa RÜ was dominated by „The Coolest of All“, CVA crew. I don’t know who the originator of the pink unicorn was, but I suppose CVA has had a finger in the pie as well. MR.TUNER CVA – THE COOLEST OF ALL – SHET SHIK and others

Unfortunately my traditional Easter walk was prevented due to the weather. I don’t know how far the shown pictures are related to the original coating for Easter, but anyway, to say it in German: HoF Donau – das kesselt! At any time! MASE x SCRIB GFS GOODFELLAS IROS X HULK X SEYM X ROWD PILZ […]

What a pity – A missed Opportunity On my way to Hall of Fame Auf der Donau, for years I have passed an advertising mural at Hohenburgstraße 80. When I last passed there, the wall was scaffolded and whitened. For the future I expected a new mural in the same style as before. What a […]

For today a visit at HoF Auf der Donau was planned, but the weather again spoiled my plans with a lot of snow. I had to find something else to fight boredom and as April is the month of cherry blossom, I got the idea for a pink post. Now – pink is a colour […]

As reported, January started with the shock that HoF Zollstraße was flatened, except for a few meagre remains. And the demolition progresses. Its only a matter of time until the whole area is leveled and until the last wall has fallen. Nevertheless a handful of writers stay until the bitter end and provide a dignified […]

A closer look to the blogposts of the past few years showed, that I have thematized a number of Easter accessoires like eggs and hares. Even umbrella drinks for easter have beeen a theme and a proper and representative carriage. What remains after that all? Easter lambs! Nada! Not a single lamb to be found […]

Helbingbrücke, a space-off area next to Essen’s railway station, currently gets a face lift. The seventh column of 20 in total was finished last week by Olli Rose, member of art collective SIGNS AND WONDERS. „Leviathan“ is the title of that mural. Oh – my – god – how I hate taking pictures of curved […]

I’m always tremendously happy to find pieces of pixel art. They are stunning. Classic Pixel Art is a form of digital art, created through the use of software, where images are edited on the pixel level. The aesthetic for this kind of graphics comes from 8-bit and 16-bit computers and video game consoles, in addition […]
