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 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 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 […]

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 […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

In Steele everything is new in spring. Around Kaiser Otto Platz there are a few freshly renovated cable distributors to admire and in addition, some freshly painted flower tubs are waiting to be planted so that the path from the station to the city centre becomes even more colourful. Kaiser-Otto-Platz (11/2022) & (03/2023) THE TOP […]

HoF Villa RÜ in March

Do you know the Moomins? No? No problem, I was only recently introduced to them by my friend from Berlin. These lovable, HIPPO-like characters were invented by the Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson. Sweeties, but they are all Trolls. My Berlin friend initially met them in Berlin, but now it seems as if they […]

Essen Steele Ost in January

The new year has also arrived in Essen Steele Ost. When I stopped by on my traditional New Year’s visit, the pervasive smell of fresh paint made it clear that the New Year had been welcomed here with a colourful party. A New Year’s greeting to the usual suspects. May it be a good year […]

Picture postcard from Essen

Help! Snowy the snowman is already half thawed and the gingerbread man is up to his belly button in water. All the presents are threatening to float up and away. Climate change has arrived at Villa RÜ just in time for X-mas. MR.PILZ Location more pictures -> click

Gustav Heinemann Brücke in December

The wall below Gustv Heinemann Brücke in Essen Werden doesn’t change it’s design that often, as it is not listed as one of Essen’s legal walls. Nevertheless new pieces of graffiti pop up here in very infrequent intervals. Why Chrome is so popular with writers is beyond me; they will have their reasons. In any […]
