When I realized that Hagen takes part UFAM Ruhr I was electrified. I had been in Hagen in March the first time and found Wehringhausen, a lively neighbourhood that tries hard to make the quarter more liveable with a lot of street art and graffiti in a surrounding of Art Nouveau town houses.
UFAM Ruhr homepage announced a gable in Christian-Rohlfs-Strasse 17 to be the setting of the work of David Radon and Robert Matzke aka ROOKIE THE WEIRD. Amazing! Both are artists of great national and international renoun and seem to collaborate regularly. I was very excited about what would await me in Hagen. They started on Friday with the outlines and when I arrived they already had finished for that day. The next day I started early and found work in process. The wall should have been finished in the evening.
