Bilk S has got a facelifting

Until recently, Bilk S was a stop for local trains only and the surroundings for the common passer-by not really attractive. Entrance, walls and surrounding columns were playground for the street art scene and the pasted and sprayed walls gave the passer-by cause for many a rant. No question, for the street art enthusiast a […]

Happy Anniversery Hafendampf

When X-mas, Easter, Whitsun and all the other public holidays fall on one day, then it’s the second weekend of April 2022 and Hafendampf reaches it’s teen age. A 10th birthday is special. Anyone who has a teenager in the household knows what I’m talking about. Caution! Teenager – can do anything – knows everything […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

My last visit in Bilk was for 40° Urban Art Festival 2020. Corona and it’s latest variety, was the reason why I was somewhat reluctant to make excursions to neighbouring cities like Dortmund or Düsseldorf. No wonder that there were a lot of changes during the years; also some, that are no longer new. Friedrichstraße […]

Düsseldorf shows solidarity with Ukraine

In face of Russia’s unjustified and brutal attack on Ukraine, it’s not only Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen’s concern to express solidarity with those affected by the war. A number of street artists use the very popular promenade along the Rhine as an exhibition showcase for their current works. SOSCHÖN – Düsseldorf Kasematten OLGA – Düsseldorf Kasematten L.E.T. […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

My last visit at Adler59 was a very long time ago (#FUCKCORONA) and it was overdue to have a look. Of course, I have found a lot of new stuff, but the most important first: Adler59 shares it’s backyard with Falkenstraße 6. Both doorways are designed (only of the best). And while the doorway at […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

I am asked again and again if this wall is a legal wall and about the exact location of it. To say it once and for all: No, this is not a legal wall and it is not allowed to paint it spontaneously. I don’t know who the owner is, but the concept of protecting […]

Notes from the streets of Amman

The world looks at ukraine with bated breath, the attention is bound there. In such times, the priority is survival and a quick end to the war; culture certainly does not play first fiddle. Still, culture is very good to distract me from my dark thoughts and fears. The irrepressible will of the artists who […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße in March

Normally I don’t visit our halls of fame on weekends; weekends are busy and you’re in danger to disturb artists at work and find pieces unfinished. Anyway, I was in the area and thought I’d stop by. It came as it had to – my farewell greeting was „I’ll be back on Monday“. So the […]

HoF Emscherhalle in March

Normally it’s not difficult for me to make a selection from the photos I took on one of my walks, but the pictures of Emscherhalle from last Monday are actually all worthy of being shown. But space is very limited here, so now more than ever: for more pictures -> click ZWERG MISTER OREO x […]

HoF Grüner Pfad in March

My last visit at HoF Grüner Pfad in Duisburg was in July last year; in the universe of graffiti that’s eons, but the truth is that I had decided to avoid longer trips due to the Omicron mutation of that terrible virus (#FUCKCORONA). Now spring is here and I had expected everything to be better […]
