BÄDBOY – New Düsseldorf findings

I’ve always liked it, the Cheshire Cat, which is a fictional cat popularised by Lewis Carroll in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. During 40° Urban Art Festival 2015, I met this critter all the time as alter ego of BÄDBOY, who is a Düsseldorf based graffiti writer and street artist. In the last days I have […]

For this visit, however the wrong strategy. In times of Corona (#fuckcorona) nothing is normal. And so I happened to […]

What would Shakespeare's "Hamlet" be without the skull?
