Essen Steele Ost in January

I took me a long time to find that wall at the pedestrian tunnel in Essen Steele Ost. But since I knew where it is localised, I visit it regularly and I usually find something new to please me. My last visit was no exception. VEGAS CKSM EKS & BLANCO DEMON & THE TOP NOTCH […]

The first walk of the new year

For me it has been a tradition since the beginning of my interest for graffiti and street art, to take the first walk of the year to the Danube. Essen is next to the Danube; one of our halls of fame is called Donau – after the river, just like the street „Auf der Donau“ […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Viehofer Platz currently is getting a new face. It was already painted in the past, but I do not know when this design was created, nor who the artist was. Those paintings were in a bad condition when I was there in 2017 to take my first pictures there. Today I’m happy about the few […]

In good company of CVA & GFS …

My dear friends of graffiti and street art, the year 2021 draws to a close and before everyone sinks into hibernation, there is not much more to say than „Frohe Weihnachten allüberall“. Means (free translated): Merry X-mas all over near or far. Please find the comments of the local graffit scene below, as far as […]

Murals in Essen (9th)

But of course, that’s not all; we’re growing and get more as time goes by. Please find more -> here Hedwigstraße; Gabor Doleviczenyi „Der Kuss“ (05/2017) Location Helbingstraße; Olli Rose […]

Kray Nord Bf has got a new face

A recent study by the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association (VRR) shows, in Essen most of the railway stations are in poor condition. More than 70 per cent of the railway stations in Essen are „in need of development“. These stations also include Essen Kray Nord, where in April 2021 a large-scale renovation project, with a volume […]

Steele-S has got a new image

The strategy of protecting buildings and facilities from graffiti with graffiti is not new. German Railway at any rate trusts in it. It seems to work. Every year again, the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association (VRR) documents the condition of their stations in a station report. Again and again there is a need for improvement; in 2020, […]
