One Thing is for sure – The Change

Due to Corona I hadn’t been at Dortmund’s harbour since 01/2019. Thats a long time and who wonders, the change has beaten hard especially at Speicherstraße. The wrecking ball has destroyed nearly all the old familiar buildings and you no longer know your way around. My last visit at Speicherstraße 54 brought a new piece […]

ManKenntSich Kollektiv – New Mural at Speicherstraße

Dortmund’s harbour is a graffiti and street art hot spot, not just because MTW has it’s headquarter there and sets accents. In the course of the time especially the area around the old warehouse, Speicherstraße 100, is a meeting place for the murals of artists of all kinds. I haven’t been there for a long […]

Krupplyn meets MTW – Results: Backboard Jam

When Krupplyn and MTW do a picknick, they can’t do it without music and graffiti. And normally everyone runs to avoid missing it. But the timing! On the weekend of Hafendampf?! To be true, that causes frustration for graffiti fans. As far as I’m concerned, the decision was not difficult. Hafendampf won and Backboard Jam […]

Amarena Cup Mark Gmehling Style

A year already has passed since Mark Gmehling has designed the wall of a popular Ice cream parlour in Dortmund at Rheinische Straße / Ritterstraße. A greedy tongue hanging out and a cherry topped ball of pistacio ice-cream, that was my first thought, looking at this artwork, which was new for me. Why can I […]

Dortmunder Gruppe shows „Banner Project“ at Phoenix West

These are hard times, not only for artists, who are unable to present their work in exhibitions actually (#FUCKCORONA). So I would like to draw your attention to a project of 22 artists of Dortmunder Gruppe, who exhibit their current works in a prominent place next to the disused blast furnace at Phoenix West. The […]

KRYPTIC LINEZ has finished new mural in Unionviertel

When I came accross Unionviertel three weeks ago I found a new mural in the process of development. Meanwhile the mural was finished and a signature was left. So I’m able now to provide additional information about the artist(s) – at least partially. The wall was signed with KRYPTIC LINEZ, but that is all I […]

New mural in Dortmund’s Unionviertel (work in progress )

My last visit in Dortmund’s Unionviertel felt like an eternity ago and I was stunned in view of all those new artworks close together. The finding of an unfinished project at Rheinische straße 38 brought it to 4 new murals a day in total. I don’t know anything about the artist(s) behind, but I’ll do […]

Denis Klatt – Tied Up Humpback Whale

Almost a year is passed since my last walk in Dortmund’s Unionviertel (#FUCKCORONA); plenty of time for the change. I didn’t expect to find such a variety of new murals there. Denis Klatt aka HIFI has realized a mighty Humpback Whale at Lange Straße 21. The background story is given by his Instagram account. What […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Since my first visit in Dortmund’s Unionviertel I was keen of an old advertising mural at Kraftstoff, a popular pub and beergarden at Augustastraße 2. Unfortunately I didn’t got a proper picture of it and when I was there in October 2020, I found the facade scaffolded and did’nt foresee anything good, I didn’t know […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The wall opposite Dortmunder U, designed in November 2013 with „HYPE“ by Mark Gmehling, has got a new face. Curated by 44309 STREET//ART GALLERY, artist collective „MAN KENNT SICH“ (Herr Choko, A.Elementar, Kasino 44, Call Me Marc & Dr.Aco) has redesigned this eyecatcher wall in the heart of Unionviertel. Unfortunately the exhibition „I was here“, […]
