One Thing is for sure – The Change

„Schmuddelecken“ – Dirty Corners – each town nows them. You’ll recognize them by the people hurrying by with lowered eyes, without taking notice for the closer environment. Street art and graffiti adore such places and I love them too. They very often produce the gems I am hunting for. In Essen one of those places […]

To err is human …

Names are important; they give meaning and identity. This also applies to the correct names of graffiti crews. They don’t make it easy to you to find out the crew name, as most of them use abbreviations. In addition they use to play with those abbreviations, according to mood and opportunity. Due to that, I […]

HoF Bad Cannstadt – April 2015

Corona – and no end in sight. OK – lets have a look at my activities in April 2015, when I was in Stuttgart for a number of days. I didn’t know that much about Stuttgart and the local street art scene, but an article of a magazine reported about the graffiti scene there, which […]

Easter Eggs

It’s a challenge to find new ideas for posts in times of Corona. As I have decided to avoid public transport and do everything on foot, there is a lack of new pieces to be shown here. Let’s see – we have had a post about sculls, resipratory protection masks and face coverings, toiletpaper was […]

Oldies but Goldies

Coming from Bilk S, on my way to Floragarten, I always have to pass Haus Niederrhein, which seems to be a traditional restaurant and pub in Düsseldorf Bilk. I have always been very upset about the containers, housing the site offices of the urban rail construction site. These containers completely reduced the visibility of a […]
