Notes from a Berlin friend

Berlin graffiti scene will know him, but I don’t know that much about DEMUT, except that he is an institution of the Berlin graffiti community and known for his breathtaking photorealistic portraits. My Berlin friend has found one of them in Moabit yesterday. DEMUT „Kinder tragen das Tuch der Unschuld“ – „Children carry the cloth […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

As I’m completely taken out of action by a terrible flu and my main activity at present is coughing the walls, I don’t have that much to tell about news from the Ruhr area, even if I’m sure that there are a lot of news, worth telling them. My Berlin friend does his best to […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

I would like to point out once again to this: Under the headline „Notes from a Berlin friend“ I post more or less frequently the pictures of a Berlin based friend. He has no real wish to create a blog, or to have his own homepage, but wants to share his pictures. We have agreed […]

As one of the men of the first hour and the grandfather of Berlin mural painters, Gert Neuhaus is an important participant in the design of post-war Berlin. […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Wintertime is long and awful and in my region the weather mostly is not good enough for postcards, but more like nasty weather. February is the month, which often offers at least some snow, but it mostly ends in mud quickly. The colours are dark and grey and so I was very pleased by the […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend has sent me a number of pictures of a new painting at the facade of a house at Schönhauser Allee / Kastanienallee, which  has recently been refurbished. Nothing was to be found out about the artist, who surely is in best tradition of Gert Neuhaus. This style I would call pseudo-architecture, because […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend has made a walk at hall of fame Mauerpark and found a number of stunning portraits of EME, Berlin based artist with Afro-Caribbean roots, who was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I must confess, I’m eager for more of that stuff.   Instagram
