HoF Auf der Donau in September

This cactus is turning out to be a bloody challenge cup! I had just learned that this character was not created by BRES, but by Nick Knite. Only a little later, another of these prickly little guys is found at HoF Auf der Donau. PABO, about whom I unfortunately know nothing, is apparently the one […]

Martha Margarete at Creative Quarter North

Installations are rarely to be found in Essen’s public space. They have the survival chance of a snowflake in hell. The foot troopers of the city cleaning company mercilessly remove everything that doesn’t fit in with the normal outfit of a modern city centre, and anything that escapes this clean-up frenzy finds a lover who […]

HoF Auf der Donau in September

With a big fat grin I was welcomed at Hall of Fame Auf der Donau this morning. I hadn’t seen it for a long time and had already missed my Mister Earthworm. So he still exists – which makes me personally very happy. It does me good, that naughty grin. A few metres further on, […]

HoF Villa RÜ in September

This cat looks harmless, but make no mistake and beware, this is not a kitten! The claws are filed to a needle point. Somehow I can identify with this little animal. That excuse „Sorry Mum – Gone to REAL“ could be mine! And many greetings back! BARIO LYP CVA x BYE MR. PILZ DEBIL x […]

HoF Dortmund Hafen in August

An anniversary is always a cause for celebration. But when FOG and MKG have a party at the same time, the crème de la crème of the NRW graffiti scene quickly gets together to deliver greetings and gifts. The passer-by enjoys and remains silent. He can only decipher a few things anyway – except greets […]

Next Saturday, 27.8.2022, a harbour walk will take place in Dortmund’s harbour for the 9th time. From 1 pm, Krupplyn’s Backboard Jam will take place in the heart of the harbour at Drehbrückenstraße. That means hip-hop from local artists, live & open-air, beats & rhymes to the ears. For this event, More Than Words has […]

HoF Villa RÜ in August

OK – There is a fiftyfifty chance that I am right to name the true originator of this funny cactus. Last time I was bloody wrong and it wasn’t BRES who had painted it. This time I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, this cactus was made by NICK KNITE. I’m […]

Bismarcktunnel has got a new face

The underpass of A 42 motorway at „Gelsenkirchen Zoo“ station on the B227 (Bismarckstraße) is the entrance gate to the city of Gelsenkirchen for many visitors. For many users it was an inhospitable place to be. In 2020 a new lighting concept for the subway was created to bring light into darkness. The lighting shines […]
