Alter Wartesaal im Bahnhof Herne shows FRI / VOL.2 – solo show „ROCCO UND SEINE BRÜDER“

Do you know ROCCO? And what about his brothers? No? Never mind, you’re in best company. Nobody knows them personally, except a small number of carefully selected people. Born in the 1980ies, Rocco and his brothers are a fixed value in the graffiti scene of Berlin. In January 2016, the collective „ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERES“ […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

One of the steady routines of my Berlin friend is to observe the changes at Dircksenstraße, which has developed to a race between the rabbit and the hedgehog recently. A cheeky thief – or thiefs? – has/have stolen again the head of the collaboration piece of PLANETSELFIE x STICKERMAIDBERLIN x SOSCHÖN. My friend is pretty […]

Who has stolen the coconut?

I love apes! In a ranking of my favorite animal, apes will be in the top 10. Since my days of childhood I like Rudyard Kipling’s „The Jungle Book“, but the American animated musical comedy film produced by Walt Disney, I love the most. The characters Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo the bear and all others got […]

Hotel Lindner City Plaza hosts „Aérosol de cologne“

First of all: This is not a sponsored article, even if this might be hard to believe. But my enthusiasm is genuine and incidentally cannot be purchased. Cologne is proud of its more than 80 neighbourhoods, which are called „Veedel“ in colonian dialect. They all are unique and have their own identity and character. A […]

Im Ahrfeld has got a facelifting

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend is very generous and always has another ace up his sleeve, which is just waiting to be played. In light of recent events, he has submerged to his archive and rediscovered an older piece of HONSAR to amaze me and turned my face again to pale green incidentally. Friedrichshain – HONSAR and […]

Speicher Pop Up Gallery 2.0

In April heaven is close to hell. Especially last Saturday, street art community of Northrhine Westfalia seemed to have flocked together and have conspired to a complot to drive me to distraction. Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Essen and who knows where else – the last weekend was a blast of events around the topic street art. […]

  The Central Committee of street art in Essen and Northrhine Westfalia came together on Saturday for consultations, party and a multi-day exhibition at Alibi Essen, Holzstraße 12.

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend has made a flying visit to Brandenburg. I think he does not know exactly where he was, but somewhere in nowhere he stumbled unexpectedly across streetart hunters paradise. TOBO BERLIN in deeply rural areas
