One thing is for sure – the change

Even if this wall in the south side of Essen is not a wall listed to be legal, it frequently gets a new face by the local writers and I have learned over the years, to visit it from time to time, in order to observe the changes. My yesterdays visit brought only one new […]

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 […]

Kupferdreh S – Sound Barrier

I have no idea when they have installed the new sound insulation wall, facing Kupferdreh station. For years there was a single wall at the other side only, shielding the houses nearby. Passing Kupferdreh S by urban train, it was my greatest pleasure to have a look at this perfectly designed wall. Now the view […]

HoF Kupferdreh in November

Hall of Fame Kupferdreh is one of our halls of fame, you are not allowed to spray on spontaneously; you have to ask for permission to paint there. I suppose, that is the reason why it doesn’t change its face that often, and so I do not visit it regularly. It’s difficult to impossible to […]

One thing is for sure – the change

My timing is terrible. My last visit at HoF Villa RÜ is just two days ago and during this walk the question occupied me, where the hell KEDO has gone to paint his pieces. His last piece at Villa RÜ was in July 2020. Hardly retruned home, www-egghead brought a new piece of KEDO at […]

HoF Villa RÜ in November

We have arrived in November and the dark season is not the time of the year I like the most. Wet weather, slimy fallen leaves and slippery footpaths. That sounds like an upcoming depression? Probably – frustration is close to all of us, facing the renewed lock down (FUCKCORONA). Partially or not – simply depressing. […]

Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and Herr Müller-Lüdenscheidt’s lost heart

In October we had an illustrious guest in town, who helped our local writers to beautify a wall in the south side of the city. My October highlight was a piece of ICHBIN3OELTANKS, a tourist from Berlin – in Essen. My Berlin friend never had the pleasure to find one of his pieces so far […]

New Kids in Town

KIES, KOSTN, ZASTER – in German language all synonyms for money. It seems, that we have a new group of writers in town, who have founded a new crew named ATM. I don’t know that much about them, but I’m pretty sure that we will get more of them. KIES ATM KOSTN ATM ZASTER ATM
