HoF Zollstraße – Deserted and almost empty

There’s really not much left of the old Hall of Fame at Essen’s Northside on Zollstraße other than tons of rubble and a few wildly overgrown wall remnants. The site on which the new Essen 51 district is to be built is still a field of rubble, with little left to remind us of the […]

HoF Auf der Donau in May

My last visit to HoF Auf der Donau was not so long ago and by now both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day have left their mark there. Lots of holidays and lots of opportunities to decorate the walls. MR.PILZ x CAME and others OVERALL EWS GIF FÄTERLICHE FÜRSORGE SMEK x KEDO 134 KEDO 134 Location […]

Essen Steele Ost in May

CHRIS, the visitor from Leipzig, also left his colourful fingerprints in Steele Ost. As I said, visitors who bring gifts are always welcome in Essen. And as if to give me an extra treat, a shy squirrel also came along in his wake. At last! CHRIS ? & COCONUT ALME DEMON & THE TOP NOTCH […]

HoF Auf der Donau in May

During my last visit to HoF Auf der Donau, I stumbled across a piece apparently left by CHRIS, a guest from Leipzig. Guests are always welcome in Essen, they bring variety and fit seamlessly into the picture alongside the usual suspects. DEMON x SHET SHIK x CHRIS BLIND ILLBOYS & PAD Location more pictures -> […]

HoF Villa RÜ in April

The scaffolding is still up, but the closure of the passage from Giradetstraße to Christinenpanrk has been lifted. So the roof work seems to be finished for the time being and the wall at Villa RÜ is accessible again. artists unknown POTTKID & artist unknown Location more pictures -> click

HoF Auf der Donau in April

It’s probably the same for everyone; the first thing you learn to read and write is your own name. This is a common practice in the circles of graffiti writers too. The graffiti spotter learns over time (if he is lucky) to decipher the writing, or at least to recognise from the style what he […]

HoF Villa RÜ in April

Anyone who wants to spend some time at Villa RÜ and leave something colourful behind, unexpectedly will run into problems. Due to works on the roof, the villa is currently surrounded by scaffolding and while the roofers are working, the footpath between Christinenpark and Giradetstraße is closed to pedestrians. The closure will not be lifted […]

The Masked Singer – Essen vs. Berlin

The word is out: the pandemic has been declared over. Other issues are now on the agenda. The TV programme has not got any better, but there are still constants you can rely on: They are dressing up again and they are also performing again, more or less skilfully. Last Saturday, a new season of […]

HoF Auf der Donau in April

Definitely, I’m about 3 weeks behind and a bit out of touch. I have only recently been accepted into the exclusive Club C and am still a bit weak after getting rid of the club logo (consisting of two parallel red lines on an oval white test field). A lot has happened at the hall […]

LACUNA on a flying visit

Just recently, during one of my wanderings, I stumbled across a paste-up by the Berlin based street artist LACUNA. I was thrilled; paste-ups are rare to find in Essen and don’t have a high chance of survival here. Too many people try to peel the works off the wall to take them away and destroy […]
