HoF Villa RÜ in June

One wonders how one is able to hold a can with such sharply filed fingernails, let alone operate it. But as you can see, it’s not impossible BARIO LYP TONEY x BRICKS AND DRIPS PASS Location More pictures -> click

Der schöne Hermann shows „Cardboard Dummies“

What do you think, hearing the nickname „handsome Hermann“? I, for one, imagined everything possible, but I would never have thought of an art gallery. But it seems to have escaped my attention that there is an art gallery in Eltingviertel, at the very edge of Kreativ Quartier Nord, that bears that name. And that’s […]

HoF Villa RÜ in June

Legal walls can be used for more than only fun. KEDO, member of 134crew, also uses his talent to draw attention to Rosa’s fate. Rosa is 8 years old, loves dinosaurs and is in the second grade. She has leukaemia and urgently needs a stem cell donation. And even though Rosa has found a donor […]

Because only with it gamers could play their favourite games – like Tetris, Super […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Hall of Fame Villa RÜ is well known to be one of Essen’s legal walls which can be painted spontaneously and without permission. But only the wall opposite the building is legal; the house wall of the villa is made of open-pored stone and is not approved for spraying, which was well respected for a […]

HoF Essen Borbeck in April

HoF Essen Borbeck is one of our halls of fame which are not allowed to be painted spontaneously. You have to ask for permission first. Probably that is the reason why it doesn’t change its face very often. Nevertheless, the frequency of renewance is not an indicator of the quality of the pieces found there […]
