No Easter Bunnies in Essen too

A closer look to the blogposts of the past few years showed, that I have thematized a number of Easter accessoires like eggs and hares. Even umbrella drinks for easter have beeen a theme and a proper and representative carriage. What remains after that all? Easter lambs! Nada! Not a single lamb to be found […]

BILMO – BANG BLOOM BANG

BILMO DE BACHATA is a street artist, who appeared on my radar 2017. He is based somewhere in nowhere between Düsseldorf and Cologne. His street name has found him in a tapas bar, where he was taken away by music a la „me gusta la bachta“. Since then his friends call him like that. He […]

Pretty Portal shows – ARDIF solo show „MACHINaturE vs MachiNATURE“

How do you measure the success of an exhibition? I would say that this question is easy to answer. The proportion of exhibited works and red dots, showing that the work is sold, tells enough. According to this, the newest exhibition opened at Pretty Portal on 22nd March, is the most successful exhibition ever. Düsseldorf […]

It refers to the phenomenon of gratuitous fear or anxiety and is felt as typically German especially by observers from the Anglo-Saxon area. What has this got to do with the writer […]

Giant creepy-crawly sighted at Brause

This former cashpoint with old fashioned glass front of a small vintage petrol station has mutated in August 2001 to a social club with a number of concerts, readings, exhibitions and much more. Probably for the latest exhibition „Sticky Art“ which has shown everything around stickers, STUESSYDAN has knighted the facade with a giant cockroach. 

Oldies but Goldies

Coming from Bilk S, on my way to Floragarten, I always have to pass Haus Niederrhein, which seems to be a traditional restaurant and pub in Düsseldorf Bilk. I have always been very upset about the containers, housing the site offices of the urban rail construction site. These containers completely reduced the visibility of a […]

German Railway – Charm Offensive aquiring young trainees?

Travelling by rail is exciting and colourful. For me it is never boring and I don’t need a book nor earphones. The track itself is my newspaper. Who is the most important writer or crew of an area? Who is friend or foe of whom? Try to read the track and hope you have got […]

ARDIF – Traces of „Punks, Robots & Angels“

Close to the gallery Pretty Portal, where in December 2017 ARDIF took part of the group show „Punks, Robots & Angels“, he has left two paste-ups. ARDIF is a young French artist, who deals with mechanics behind living matters. In his drawings he transforms animals to mechanical beings. His creatures are splitted in two parts […]
