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“, […]

Thank heavens – They were there!

I must confess, I’m almost ashamed to admit, that yesterday the lack of public lavatories caused a serious case of emergency. No loos in local transport, that’s not new; I firmly counted on „Sanifer“ in Dortmund’s main station, but sorry for any inconveniences. My last hope – Dortmunder U – shut due to Corona restrictions! […]

WARK ROCINHA – A Taste of Rio de Janeiro in Unionviertel

Living in Rocinha, the biggest favela of Rio de Janeiro, muralist WARK ROCINHA is known for his comic style angels, which are his trademark. Since 15 years, when he discovered graffiti as his means of expression, he plasters his neighbouhood with his googly-eyed angels. Nowadays they have made their way to Dortmund’s Unionviertel. One of […]

The spirits that I’ve summoned – Corona Ghosts

They have become an icon of the pandemic in Dortmund – Corona Ghosts; there are hundreds of them all over the city. My last visit in Dortmund was before Corona (#FUCKCORONA) and before it was the dominating headline of our days. And so I was more than surprised to find those funny guys with baby […]

44309 STREET//ART GALLERY shows „What If“ group show with BIRD KIBE MISOUS & TRAFIC

On my way to 44309 Street Art Gallery to see their newest group show „What If“, I suddenly understood that this was my first visit in Dortmund in 2020 – #fuckcorona! Soon it became clear to me, much had changed. But about that a bit later, the exhibition first, as it soon comes to an […]

Again and again – Adler 59

From the beginning of my streetart hobby in the year 2013 up to today, Dortmund was and still is on my list of cities to visit regularly. Not only because it is well connected with Essen by urban traffic. In Dortmund graffiti has got the initial ignition for the Ruhr area and even today music […]

If pigs could fly…

… they probably will get out of DortmunderU, where they currently populate the staircase, to point out the Pink Floyd Exhibition, and fly away to Adler 59. They would have maximum pleasure there with a lot of new pieces; as for me Adler 59 never disappoints – never! As was proofed again yesterday, when I […]
