Graffiti for a Beginner

I owe the idea for this post to FOOL, a member of CVA crew, who has posted a picture of a piece, designed in spring 2015 at HoF Auf der Donau, this morning. It brought me straight back to the time of my start into a hobby, I never had expected to fell in love […]

Corona Dampf

Since its birth 2013, Hafendampf, which is the top graffiti festival in our region, had to deal with various difficulties. In 2014 and 2015 it had to be outsourced to our halls of fame due to reconstruction works at the harbour site. Nevertheless, Hafendampf is an event with tradition, this year it would have been […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Not all of the bus stops of line 146 between Wasserturm and Kray Mitte have been made worse. Frillendorfer Platz; LACKAFFEN for Ruhrbahn Location

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The change is a constant factor in graffiti and street art and I often get into a struggle with it. Especially when beloved pieces disappear and are replaced. Normally its a win situation, but not this time; and that is not the fault of the artists, who have designed the 4 bus stops of line […]

HoF Frillendorfer Platz in September

It is always big fun to find a new piece of SIR & Pilz. The majority of their work I have found at the HoF Auf der Donau and Zollstraße. I never have seen a piece of them at HoF Frillendorfer Platz. Last weekend it was a happy coincidence, to meet both at work at Frillendorfer […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

During Hafendampf weekend the jam was in my focus, but all the time when I was at Franz-Fischer-Weg, I had to pass HoF at Frillendorfer Platz, which is one of those HoF you have to ask for permission to spray on. That is why it’s face doesn’t change that often. In 2014 and 2015, during […]

Hafendampf 2018 – A40 Edition – After the jump

For me it’s almost a tradition to look back on Hafendampf and show the finished walls; so the focus of this post is a recapitulation and postscript of this year’s Hafendampf. First of all: at this point I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of those who had to endure my questions […]

Hafendampf 2018 – A40 Edition – 2nd day of the jump

Strange – but unfortunately true, Hafendampf-weekend is over again. Franz-Fischer-Weg has calmed down and all those strange special guests have gone  home and are scattered to the four winds. They have left rich gifts for the residents; confusing styles in radiating colours and hardly to decipher – as far as I am concerned – and […]

Hafendampf 2018 – A40 Edition – 1st day of the jump

This year again Hafendampf has left its traditional location in Essen’s city port, where it was launched 2013. In close proximity to HoF at Frillendorfer Platz, at Franz-Fischer-Weg, motorway A40 has got a brandnew acustic barrier. Hafendampf organisers, THE TOP NOTCH and DEMON, have occupied 300m of best German concrete to be painted. They have […]
