Outside white and slippery – inside girlish pink

For today a visit at HoF Auf der Donau was planned, but the weather again spoiled my plans with a lot of snow. I had to find something else to fight boredom and as April is the month of cherry blossom, I got the idea for a pink post. Now – pink is a colour […]

Graffiti for a Beginner – Continuation

2014 was the year, my infection with the virus, called „Street Art“ broke out in full strength. My mania for this kind of art didn’t meet on much understanding in my environment, but I couldn’t stop running for more. From 14.9. – 30.9.2012 the sound barriers of A40, the most frequented highway of the Ruhr […]

It’s summertime and when the weather is fine, it’s festival season, but in times of Corona (#FUCKCORONA) festivals have become a rarity. The conditions for such events are strict and so a lot of people are waiting in desperation for offers. And here it is, the festival „AUS DER ART AM SEE“, a special offer […]

Uecke lives and thrives

Like other European coal mining towns, Gelsenkirchen and especially Ückendorf and its 20.000 inhabitants are suffering from the decline in mining activity in the area as well as the whole Ruhr region.

Pottwall Jam 2019 – After the Jump

You’re welcome to feel sorry for me. Meanwhile a new heat wave is rolling over the country and since last Saturday, when I just survived this year’s Pottwall Jam, I have locked up myself in my darkened appartment. My confirmed habit is to visit the finished walls the day after, to take pictures of them. […]

PottWall Jam 2018 – After the jump – Part II

Five locations were the playgrounds of PottWall Jam 2018. I have shown Munscheidstraße in part I. Three locations remain for part II. Bochumer Straße (I don’t know the house number) Dangerously licked catches and big yellow eyes glare at the passerby through the bars of an iron-barred gate. Is it a dog or rather a […]

PottWall Jam 2018 – After the jump – Part I

PottWall Jam is an annual event in the calendar of Streetart Initiative Gelsenkirchen. This year for me it was a very special event, as they deviated from their convention to play at a legal wall, such like Schürenkamptunnel (2017) or Nordsternpark (2016) and have chosen a crime scene in Ückendorf, next to the center of […]
