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“ […]
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
Even if the wall Im Ahrfeld is not a wall listed to be legal, it frequently gets a new face by the local writers and I have learned over the years, to visit it from time to time, in order to find the changes. My last visit in February brought a number of brandnew pieces, […]
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. […]
Alibi Essen shows „Zentralkommitee Straßenkunst“
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. All the delegates arriving via Rheinischer Platz were received by BONA BERLIN, LUNA, MSBUBBLES and MR.PILZ at the old tunnel of former Rheinische Bahn at Altenessener Straße. […]
Am Freistein – Who knicked the scaffolding?
Every time the same in April – things move quickly and mostly there is more than one event on the same day, at the same time and I have trouble to avoid falling further berhind. So it did escape me that in night and fog the scaffolding at the facade of the house at Beisingstrße […]
Thanks for making my day!
Street artists are a secretive gang – necessarily – they always are in a footrace with the authorities and so it’s not easy to get information about the location of pieces. A problem for me, as there are areas in my city I haven’t been ever, I don’t know or haven’t heared of. From time […]
Take a Butcher’s Gallery starts „URBAN CREATURES“ – European group show with 4 artists from England, France, Switzerland and Austria
Yes indeed, I know this is unusual and late as well. But for those of you who are open for a vernissage on a Thursday, this may turn out to be an adventure. Take a Butcher’s Gallery shows a group show with: DMSTFF from England – Pasted, sprayed, sketched or drawn – whichever medium: Punk’s […]
Düsseldorf loves ARDIF et vice versa …
… I think that this conclusion is probably permissible. ARDIF, French street artist, has visited Düsseldof a few days ago on the occasion of the opening of his solo show „MACHINaturE vs MachiNATURE“. He took the chance and spread a number of new paste-ups all around and disappeared again in night and fog. Yesterday I have […]
