Notes from a Berlin friend has got a new home

I would like to draw your attention to the brandnew spin off of my blog streetartwalks. Due to a lack of free space I had to come up with something new. And so I established streetartwalks reloaded. There you’ll find my new Berlin branch. It will be filled more or less frequently with the pictures […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Graffiti with political content is rare, but happens from time to time. My Berlin friend has found one of the examples at HoF Mauerpark. With mass protests the population of Hongkong prevented the conclusion of an extradition agreement with China. The shown piece is made by an unknown artist to support and appreciate the people […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Passers of Walter Benjamin Platz in Berlin Charlottenburg currently enjoy a spectacular installation made by QUINTESSENZ. It is titled “COLORMAZE” and shows a complete color circle. They have installed and moved 8,5 tons of wood. Over 10,000 screws turned in and several liters of white lacquer used for priming. The installation is built as a […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

In these days my Berlin friend is close to dispair. The hot temperatures make it difficult to break free from the shady garden, but in Berlin things are on the move; no good times to stay in the shadows!

Notes from a Berlin friend

Styro seems to have spent hybernation with crafting. Now, after reawakening from the winter sleep, he seems to be on his way, to set his creatures free, wherever he stands or goes. And my Berlin friend finds them, even if not looking for something special. Nobody stays home in this bright weather.

Will he risk jumping off with his provisionally paraglider? And will his crash helmet prevent him from injuries? I spontanously named him Otto, because he […]

I have to say good bye for a short break, as I will visit my friend, who regularly supplies me with news from the province. I hope that I’ll have a sack full of new pictures and stories for you, when I’m back. Let’s see, if my my faithful companion dog Phatty will wait for […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

One of the steady routines of my Berlin friend is to observe the changes at Dircksenstraße, which has developed to a race between the rabbit and the hedgehog recently. A cheeky thief – or thiefs? – has/have stolen again the head of the collaboration piece of PLANETSELFIE x STICKERMAIDBERLIN x SOSCHÖN. My friend is pretty […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

My Berlin friend is very generous and always has another ace up his sleeve, which is just waiting to be played. In light of recent events, he has submerged to his archive and rediscovered an older piece of HONSAR to amaze me and turned my face again to pale green incidentally. Friedrichshain – HONSAR and […]
