Both festivals produced 5 new murals each. In Wattenscheid, now the scaffoldings of the last 3 murals have been dismantled. MISTER OREO […]

WAT UP Festival – Beware of the predators at Hochstraße

Now that the scaffoldings are dismantled from the buildings next to Alte Post at Hochstraße 35 and 39 – 41, pedestrians are doing well to cross to the other side of the street. Not only to get a better view, but to get in distance to the teeth of a number of sharks populating those […]

INFUSION #10 – BATTLE OF CITIES

Well, it’s a good thing that I was not part of the jury, to choose the winner of that battle. My sympathies were not stable and switched back and forth all the time and my final decision would have been a bit different, as my sympathies came back all the time to INFAMOUS H TOWN, […]

Berlin in October – 5th day

3 more murals of Berlin Mural Fest 2019, located in Kreuzberg, were still pending. So that day Kreuzberg was on my agenda. Kreuzberg is easy, but – for matters of a street art hunter – hardly overseeable, in the face of all those street art spots and the masses of shutters, graffiti, installations, tiles, paste-ups […]

Berlin in October – 4th day

I do not tend to complain – let alone about the weather. Thats the behaviour of a common tourist. A covered sky usually is good for taking pictures – but a covered and a rainy sky? What about the struggle with the drops on your lens? For that day I had planned to look for […]

Wright Festival Bochum – TERA1 & JAYB at Wilhelm Stumpf Straße 49

37 shades of grey provide evidence, grey can be much more than a colour between black and white. Grey, mousy, stone and blush grey, the swarm of carrier pigeons, designed by TERA1 and JAYB are different, but not that much. They come together in a grey matter, except for that one and only pink one. […]
