HoF Villa RÜ in September

This cat looks harmless, but make no mistake and beware, this is not a kitten! The claws are filed to a needle point. Somehow I can identify with this little animal. That excuse „Sorry Mum – Gone to REAL“ could be mine! And many greetings back! BARIO LYP CVA x BYE MR. PILZ DEBIL x […]

HoF Villa RÜ in August

OK – There is a fiftyfifty chance that I am right to name the true originator of this funny cactus. Last time I was bloody wrong and it wasn’t BRES who had painted it. This time I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, this cactus was made by NICK KNITE. I’m […]

Graffiti Gallery Essen Steele has got a face lifting

Sure, I’ve actually said it often enough, but better safe than sorry, and lest there be any doubt: this is not a legal wall, it’s a graffiti gallery. Entry is free for everyone. The only condition: Leave your cans at home and keep your hands off! CVA DEMON x BRES x BRICKS & DRIPS COCONUT […]

HoF Villa RÜ in July

It’s holiday time, which means that the villa is not too busy. And that’s a good thing, because it gave me enough time to come back with a freshly charged battery. A camera not ready for use; that hasn’t happened to me for a long time! 0ae CLUST FTC STIER x DEST TDB Location More […]

HoF Villa RÜ in July

My readers have known for a long time that I come from the Ruhr region. Like everywhere else, we also have our own special tone of voice; translating sayings from the region is not easy. In this case, I’m afraid it wouldn’t be ladylike either. Let’s put it this way: someone who is doing extremely […]

Hafendampf 2022/2

Teenager! As if I hadn’t seen it coming! I think this is a novelty – we never had a Hafendampf event twice a year; somehow I could get used to it! But as teenagers are, erratic, unpredictable and with an ever-burning fuse, word somehow got around last Friday that there would be an extraordinary Hafendampf […]

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

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 […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

When I started to take pictures of HoF Villa RÜ, my point of interest was the painted wall. The façade of the building was almost untouched by the writters and so it’s a problem to find a proper picture to document the condition of the façade at that time. It was – and still is […]
