I was very excited to find Madame Medusa in my hometown in 12/2016. This paste-up, made by DECYCLE, was highly respected by Essen’s street art community for a long time at that spot downtown, at Viehofer Straße, but in the course of the time it suffered from wind and weather and was very taken over […]
Pieces of OVAO and HAER are rare in Essen, but from time to time they pay us a flying visit and again disappear at night and fog.

I don’t know anything about him or her, except the signature, which is MOC. My latest visit in Dortmund, for the MADC solo show, again brought me down Adlerstraße […]
