TRANSURBAN Bochum – DEMON & THE TOP NOTCH have finished their mural at Weiherstraße

On my way to Bochum I have had plenty of time to speculate about the newest mural of Essen’s dream team DEMON & THE TOP NOTCH at Weiherstraße / Knüwerweg. A fish or a bird, or something else? That was the question! What I found was a mural in their typical style and colours. The […]

TRANSURBAN Bochum – another unannounced wall at Malersaal (Schauspielhaus)

I would like to draw your attention to a new mural for TRANSURBAN in Bochum, where work is in progress now. The artiststs, from Bochum and Mönchengladbach, intend to finish their work at Malersaal, Saladin-Schmitt-Straße / Weiherstraße in the course of Tuesday.

TRANSURBAN Bochum – Henning Marten Feil has finished his mural at Neustraße

Pedestrians passing Neustraße in Bochum’s city centre in the future will be mesmerized by the shimmering underwater world of a coral reef, where a living fossile, a nautilus, guards a colourful reef society. For more pictures -> click

TRANSURBAN Bochum – KIBE & BIRD have finished their mural at Brüderstraße 1

There are a lot of graffiti crews and writer teams in the Ruhr area that play premium league. It is impossible to decide which one is the best. That depends. But anyone who knows me will know, that in the Ruhr Area this team is my favorite writer team. There is not much more to […]

TRANSURBAN Bochum – the whale is back

Denis Klatt aka HIFI has repaired the damage caused by some smearings at his mural of a sperm whale at Hermannshöhe. Now his whale again swims a sun-drenched sea with spots of sunlight at its skin unaffected by any slogan. Thank you so much HIFI.

Shipping Containers

Urban artists chronically suffer from shortage of playgrounds. Legal or not – there are a lot of places or things that have to be mold, to color or to stick. Very popular are vehicles like vans, cars or construction trailers and – to the sorrow of public transportation companies – trains.

Unknown Artist with affinity to nesting dolls

During my walks in the south side of Essen I came across these pieces which were made by an artist I don’t know anything about. I call him/her „Matrjoschka“, because the characters remind me of the well known Russian nesting dolls. 11/2015 11/2015 10/2016 & 10/2017

KISS81 – Rest in peace – only the good die young

This was not a good discovery when I have been at Hall of Fame „Auf der Donau“ today. I’m always happy to find a new piece done by BRES and YCKB, but this time the finding was connected with bad news. Düsseldorf based writer KISS81, member of the crews WCDIB, TODS, ZNC and PSE has […]

TRABSURBAN Archiv Container – One thing is for sure – the change

Essen – 2nd station, after Dortmund – new and untouched Düsseldorf – 3rd station – a small Banana has slipped in Bochum – 6th and last station before hibernation – Düsseldorf (KSR) amd Bochum (ENOC801) have done more than a Banana
