Varieties – Frida Kahlo

The newest work of Anna Littsa aka FOXY, depicting Frida Kahlo, was the trigger for this post. Frida Kahlo – who doesn’t know her, the charismatic Mexican artist with the characteristic eyebrows and the light lady’s beard? She is an artist, whose life was marked by pain, suffering and her love for the painter Diego […]

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The pictures shown here are somewhat outdated.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 […]
