Let’s talk about Goch baby – Live long and prosper

U.S.S. Bird of Spray has landed in Goch. I was there and saw it exactly. They have landed, left their spaceship and swarmed out – and now they are everywhere amongst us – …to boldly spray where no one has sprayed before. The Spockemons. OLGA, their mother, has long since lost control. Her creatures have […]

Let’s talk about Goch Baby – Never forget…Never again

LACUNA – Looking for an explanation, or better a translation for this strange street name, I found out, that a lacuna is a gap or a missing part. That makes sense – working in the streets, an artist is a lacuna of society. For GhmS Festival LACUNA painted a number of memorial pieces in remembrance […]

Let’s talk about Goch Baby

My 4th day in Goch and it was time to say bye. I decided to make the most of it and visit outer rim. As a pedestrian it wasn’t easy to visit all the spots without using a car or a bike. To my greatest displeasure, a number of spots were unreachable in an efficient […]

Let’s talk about Goch Baby

That day I met my personal festival guide on my way to a spot called Rampe. He had changed his outfit to a stylish black, with subtle color accents; ready to take me out for dinner later. The spot „Rampe“ was a 200m long section of the mighty retaining wall of Südring, which was painted […]

Let’s talk about Goch Baby

Please let me introduce to you my personal GhmS-festival guide. He is a real gentleman cat with style and was designed in collaboration of METRADA & TIANOO THE CAT. Well dressed for every occasion, with top hat and monocle, west and tie. He had welcomed me the day before in red and guided me through […]

Let’s talk about Goch Baby

The pictures shown here are somewhat outdated. Due to a number of technical problesms with my computer equipment, I was unable to show them in time. But now – here I am. Due to Corona it wasn’t easy to plan vacation as usual this year. I didn’t fancy the idea, sittting in a train for […]

GhmS Festival 2021 – The Spots

August started with good news; there is a map, where all those playgrounds of GhmS Festival are to be found. I have to warn you all: this will not be an easy task to walk them all in only one visit! This festival has mutated to a monster in only one year. So – don’t […]

GhmS Festival 2021 – Line Up Street Art

A colorful cloud hovers above Goch, ready to pour over town. A pack of creatives from all over is on the way; the list of artists is long and I fear not quite complete yet. In addition, artists often are multi-talented and able dancing more than only one wedding at the same time; or to […]

GhmS Festival 2021 – Line Up Graffiti

This is the very first piece of this year’s GhmS Festival in Goch. I show the picture by courtesy of Benjamin Taag, the organizer of that festival, who has sent it for my further heatening. This was completely unnecessesary; after a first look at the line up, I had before acute difficulties to wait until […]

GhmS Festival goes to the second round

I would like to draw your attention to Goch, which is a small town in the district of Kleve, in North Rhine-Westphalia, not known as a stronghold of street art up to last year. Then Benjamin Taag came up with the idea of a street art festival of a special kind. Supported by the local […]
