Beni Veltum & Manuel Moreno in Beverly Buer

The new Galerie Von Veltum in Gelsenkirchen Ückendorf only opened in November 2019. Then Murphy’s Law came into play and everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Less than a year later, there was water damage in the old shop in Bergmannstraße, which made the gallery unusable for a long time. In September 2021, […]

Das Ruhr Ding – A good-shaped diamond is hard to find

In 2018, the last collieries in the Ruhr region were closed. An era of working conditions hardly imaginable in Europe today thus came to an end. In 2019, the artist Stefan Marx participated in the „Ruhr Ding“ with three monochrome murals in Bochum, Dortmund and Essen. The three murals form a triptych that symbolises the […]

BYRDO at Atelierhaus Schützenbahn

Changing identities or double identities are not uncommon in street art and graffiti. Whether artists use this to separate their professional and freelance works, or whether it is a matter of demarcating a developmental step, for the observer without insider knowledge it is not easy to stay on the track of an artist who has […]

Graffiti-Jam 2022 Bochum Rottstraße

During my wanderings through Bochum during the Wright Festival last year, I happened to come across this car park at Bochum West station, where a graffiti jam with artists from the area had taken place in September. Recently there was again a jam there, but this time I knew what I was in for and […]

Gallerage shows works of BYRDO aka BIRD

The backyard of Schützenbahn 19 (Atelierhaus Schützenbahn) hosts Gallerage. Gallerage – the word is a combination of gallery and garage. That makes sense, once a garage, the room has been converted into a gallery and is now used for changing exhibitions by local artists. I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming exhibition […]
