One Thing is for sure – The Change

Time is running out fast and it is now short to twelve. The walls at Zollstraße will be brought down soon. Demolition has already started to run. Zollstraße, that topic doesn’t let me go and I think it will hold me tight in its clutches for a while. So I go on with my review and […]


Let me introduce to you SIR and PILZ. They are a constant factor in Essen’s graffiti scene and ever-present at the halls of fame in the Ruhr area. I have found a lot of pieces over the years but apart the fact that they often work side by side or in collaboration, I don’t know […]

A long time ago in 2014 – A1ONE at Zollstrasse

I didn’t know that much about graffiti when I first visited the hall of fame at Essen’s north side (Zollstrasse). However, one thing was immediately clear: graffiti is much more than childish smearings. A1ONE was one of the first signatures I was able to identify; of course not without difficulties, but after all there was […]

A long time ago in 2014 – KONT & WERT at Zollstrasse
