HoF Auf der Donau in April

And as if I haven’t got nothing else to do, a visit of HoF Auf der Donau was necessary, because KEDO and his 134 rascals have painted one more of their incredible monkeys. Middle parting and gold chain – simply priceless! 134 crew – WELK x KEDO More pictures -> click

Speicher Pop Up Gallery 2.0

In April heaven is close to hell. Especially last Saturday, street art community of Northrhine Westfalia seemed to have flocked together and have conspired to a complot to drive me to distraction. Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Essen and who knows where else – the last weekend was a blast of events around the topic street art. […]

Alibi Essen shows „Zentralkommitee Straßenkunst“

Am Freistein – Who knicked the scaffolding?

Thanks for making my day!

Street artists are a secretive gang – necessarily – they always are in a footrace with the authorities and so it’s not easy to get information about the location of pieces. A problem for me, as there are areas in my city I haven’t been ever, I don’t know or haven’t heared of. From time […]

GABOR DOLEVICZENYI – The circle of life

To mark the hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, Museum Folkwang is offering a look at the Expressionist beginnings of the school with an exhibition of works by Lyonel Feininger. Wandering through the exhibition and looking through a window, I became aware of a facade painting at a house at the opposite side […]

HoF Villa RÜ in March

Springtime has broken and cabrio season has started. Anyone who is the proud owner of a convertible car, takes the chance to cruise with opened top and hammering noises from the sound system up and down RÜ (Rüttenscheider Straße) for the edification and entertainment of the (more or less) amazed strollers. The ape, created by […]
