HoF Villa RÜ in March

There is not much space at Villa RÜ, but nevertheless those walls are very busy. It’s always worth a flying visit and guarantees something new every time again. Whenever I’m in a bad mood – and thats often in these days (#FUCKCORONA) – you don’t have to look far to meet someone who cheers you […]

Spring is upon us …

… and not only in the Fronx the trees are budding. After resting and refining their strengths for another year, artists crawled out of their holes and nests, where they have spent the winter in hibernation. Nature and artists outdo each other with fresh colours. Westpark – LYP CVA Frohnhauser Markt – Installation / Paste-Up […]

EIKE & COSY for a better feeling at Kupferdreh Bus Station

After a little more than 18 months of construction and an investment of 5,8 Million Euro, Essen Kupferdreh’s new modern local transport hub was opened in 2019. Very quickly after its opening, the new bus station became a space-off area. The grey concrete surroundings were tagged wildly and most of the passers-by were confirmed in […]

HoF Villa RÜ in March

There is very little space at HoF Villa RÜ. Nevertheless, these walls are very popular, even among guests from near and far. Besides a number of guys from GBS, the GOODBOYS crew, KEDO still has found a place for his newest piece showing Marco Kehl-Gómez of RWE, the local soccer club. CHEZ & FANZ – […]

#HOPE – Better times are coming

The first time I noticed that new gap at Huyssenallee / Baedekerstraße, where RWE administration high-rises had been knocked down, was in July 2017. What a wonderful eyecatcher wall – that was my first thought. Nothing happened ever since. Now Kölbl Kruse, owners and building project developers have discovered the potential of that spot and […]
