Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend has payed Frankfurt/Oder a flying visit and as always, he came back with a stunning collection of pictures. It was a struggle to make a selection, but at least I decided for a stunning mural, designed by SPOARE and SOLD at a pillar of Oderbrücke. It seems that the heraldic animal, a […]

One more advertising wall – Innerfields Hamburg Karoviertel 2015

The pictures my Berlin friend has shot at Mühlenstraße 6, have reminded me that I have seen a similar mural made by INNERFIELDS in Hamburg’s Karoviertel 2015. The same topic of promotion and the same style. In both cases the artists have decorated the walls with elements from the world of the product. The visual […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

A lot of artists have worked for advertising; who wonders, artists have to pay rents too. The question, if an artwork loses quality when it was made for promotion purposes only, is often hotly debated. Some photographers find it under their dignity to take pictures of advertising walls. Me and my Berlin friend certainly do […]

Notes from a Berlin friend – or a real gentlemen is simply a patient wolf

I plead guilty – I have a big crush on this damned dog named Phatty, even if it seems to have sharp teeth. Just to please me, my Berlin friend has consulted his archive and picked out some photos of Phatty, he has taken over the years. I will not withhold them from you any […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend comes with a surprise for the weekend. Guests are welcome irrespective of whether or not they are going to bring gifts.

But my „lady’s program“, I had planned for this last morning, was […]

5 days of Berlin – 4th day

This day I had a date for lunch with my Berlin friend. We agreed that a regular meal in a common restaurant was boring and doesn’t meet our requirements.

5 days of Berlin – 3rd day

The next day was a Sunday and as I was still flashed by my Kreuzberg experiences the day before. I got a bumpy start and decided to take it easy with a visit at Haus Schwarzenberg. This is an area which is easy manageable. My Berlin friend gave the recommendation not to miss the S-Bahn […]

HoF Villa RÜ in November

Today was the first day after a very long weekend, Halloween included. I decided to have a look at the residues of the party and headed to Villa RÜ first. My time was short and this Hall of Fame is not that big, even if it is a very active wall and always worth a […]
