Notes from a Berlin friend

If in a take away in my region the order is „Pommes rot/weiß“, you automatically are served with French fries with ketchup and mayonnaise. Berlin based graffiti writer GOMEZ has got special greetings in red&white on the occasion of his birthday in November. The pun is evident and needs no explanation.

One of the specialities of the House of STICKERMAIDBERLIN is adbusting and pimping up billboards. It seems that The Gregorians, well known choir for Gregorian chants, has got a new frontman who is keeping his teeth sharp.

Notes from a Berlin friend

Small things make my day and my Berlin friend is of the same type. Even small changes cause big fun and joy. To find those small treasures needs time and so a walk along Dirksenstraße always is a matter of patience. Sometimes, though you’ll find more than nutlets. The squirrel, made by METRAEDA, was a […]

Notes from a Berlin friend – or a real gentlemen is simply a patient wolf

I plead guilty – I have a big crush on this damned dog named Phatty, even if it seems to have sharp teeth. Just to please me, my Berlin friend has consulted his archive and picked out some photos of Phatty, he has taken over the years. I will not withhold them from you any […]

My Berlin friend comes with a surprise for the weekend. Guests are welcome irrespective of whether or not they are going to bring gifts. It seems that Drew Straker aka THE MURALIST, graffiti artist based in Perth, Australia, is in Berlin. He has left some gifts in Friedrichshain. Straker probably was the first artist to […]
