I thought this would be a quiet autumn day, sitting at the breakfast table this morning, making my plans for the upcoming week. I almost choked on myself, discovering a FB post about a new urban art festival in my region. I would like to draw your attention to WAT UP Festival, which will produce […]

Wright Festival Bochum – TERA1 & JAYB at Wilhelm Stumpf Straße 49

Carrier pigeons belong to the Ruhr area like mining towers, cinder hills and the kiosk next corner. „Racehorse of the man in the streets“ it is respectfully called and in our area they were the favorite pastime for miners. TERA1 and JAYB are going to eternalize them at a wall at Wilhelm Stumpf Straße 49 […]

Sold Out Gallery shows „Stan Lee Tribute Show“ group show with 9 artists and 18 pieces

Wright Festival Bochum – Murals at Springerplatz 40

What should have been a post about my 2nd day in Berlin, turns out to be one more delay. Yes – there is a life outside of Berlin too. That is why I headed for Bochum this morning first of all, where at Springerplatz 40 the scaffoldings had been removed. Now the passerby has an […]
