5 days of Berlin – 3rd day

Those of you who are on the hunt for street art, cannot avoid Friedrichshain; it is a stronghold for graffiti, stencils, cut-outs and installations of local, national and international street artists. In times of cold war and German division, Friedrichshaun was a neighbourhood of the eastern part of Germany and part of the Capital of […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend is very generous and always has another ace up his sleeve, which is just waiting to be played. In light of recent events, he has submerged to his archive and rediscovered an older piece of HONSAR to amaze me and turned my face again to pale green incidentally. Friedrichshain – HONSAR and […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Actually in Berlin an icon, which has determined the historic townscape since 1865, when Ernst Litfaß had the idea of a cylindric advertising column and invented his „Litfaßsäule“, is due to fade away. Following a tender procedure, a new company now plans to place a newer type of column and 2500 of old advertising pillars, […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

I love styro cuts. My Berlin friend exactly knows about my preferences and likes to surprise me at the weekends with some special sweets in the style of „From Berlin with love“. This weekend he pleases me with his newest finding from Fredrichshain, where he has found „The Void #15“ by STYRO next to Warschauer […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

As reported from the German capital, the current weather is not made for paste; it is almost too cold, but it’s dry at least. There are 3 words of hope and tremble: no snow please. But winter has just started and who knows what the future will bring.

Magdalena Wiegner aka ORBLE was born in Karlsruhe/Germany 1982 and grew up in Nuremberg. She is a freelance illustrator, painter and comic drawer, […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

A lot of artists have worked for advertising; who wonders, artists have to pay rents too. The question, if an artwork loses quality when it was made for promotion purposes only, is often hotly debated. Some photographers find it under their dignity to take pictures of advertising walls. Me and my Berlin friend certainly do […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend comes with a surprise for the weekend. Guests are welcome irrespective of whether or not they are going to bring gifts. It seems that Drew Straker aka THE MURALIST, graffiti artist based in Perth, Australia, is in Berlin. He has left some gifts in Friedrichshain. Straker probably was the first artist to […]

5 days of Berlin – 4th day

This day I had a date for lunch with my Berlin friend. We agreed that a regular meal in a common restaurant was boring and doesn’t meet our requirements.

Berlin Appetizer II

OK – it will take more time to get an overview! Paste-up festival at Deutsche Oper Berlin is beeing worked on. In the meantime I’ll show a stunning wall created by JOYS & VOLKADERGOLDENEREITER x Henning Marten Feil aka NAUTIC NOBBY3000 & SOKAR UNO at RAW last year. This wall seems to be highly respected; […]
