COKY’s Urban Kitties

  Coky is a graffiti artist based in Düsseldorf and even if my visits in Düsseldorf are not very rare, to find a new piece of him or of his DAC crew, is a highlight each time. So it was last Wednesday, when I visited Kiefernstraße, where the sound isolation wall just got a new […]

Notes from a Berlin friend
