HoF Nordsternpark in August

This year again Hall of Fame Nordsternpark was crime scene of the annual Pottwall Jam event. If you want to see these walls with your own eyes, don’t forget to bring sunglasses and sunscreen. I recommend a straw hat, high sun protection factor sunscreen and a personal assistant to fan the air. Don’t forget a […]

When we’re done here …

BILK S is getting colourful Whether I will love the new Bilk S outfit as much as the old, somewhat grubby garb, remains to be seen. But what I have seen so far leaves little doubt. The shown pictures were made a few days ago during the working process. And as I was on the […]

SEILEISE Grand Tour 2022

Today in NRW summer holidays come to an end, but that doesn’t mean the travel season is over. It seems that Cologne-based street artist SEILEISE has also closed his show room until 10.9. and has gone on a big tour of Germany.

Mixed bag for free

Organised by „Initiative Düsseldorfer Büdchentag“, the annual Büdchentag has been taking place in Düsseldorf since 2016. It stands for music, art and culture in the everyday space of the Büdchen (also called Newsagent or Kiosk elsewhere).

Folkwang und die Stadt – Folkwang and the City

From 21 May to 7 August 2022, Essen’s City North will become the venue for numerous projects that unite culture, city and life. They are […]

Just recently on Viehofer Straße, in Kreativ Quartier Nord and now he’s also popping up wihin a concept wall by BRES and some friends with some other illustrious figures.

Kreativ Quartier Nord has got a new icon

In the middle of the lively Kreativ Quartier Nord, on Viehofer Str. 28, Krazy8 takes care of its customers‘ needs. Because the owner of the building was unhappy with the appearance of the small alley next to the shop, BRES, a local sprayer, was allowed to redesign this area. Now customers and passers-by are invited […]

HoF Villa RÜ in July

It’s holiday time, which means that the villa is not too busy. And that’s a good thing, because it gave me enough time to come back with a freshly charged battery. A camera not ready for use; that hasn’t happened to me for a long time! 0ae CLUST FTC STIER x DEST TDB Location More […]
