One Thing is for sure – The Change

Hall of Fame Villa RÜ is well known to be one Essen’s legal walls which can be painted spontaneously and without permission. But only the wall opposite the building is legal; the house wall of the villa is made of open-pored stone and is not approved for spraying, which was well respected for a long […]

RUbug opens it’s doors – Festival für Urbane Kunst

Industrial site redevelopment, or shorter: IBUG. Chemnitz has shown the way and Ruhr Metropolis follows. After more than ten years of vacancy, the old Westerholt colliery opens its rusty doors. More than 60 international artists have revitalised the abandoned site with spray cans, wood, varnish and paint. RUbug aims to create an arc between street […]

Turbo Urban – The Spacial Miracle goes to a new round

Do you know the meaning of „Salon hanging“ or „Petersburg hanging“? It has got its name from the opulently covered walls of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and means the practice of hanging artworks close together and filling the entire wall. Soon you will be able to see this kind of presenting artworks in Düsseldorf […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße has got a number of new portraits since my last visit in April. Next to Anna Littsa’s Frida Kahlo, her daughter DEMOKURA has eternalized a portrait of her favourite musician Dorian Elrctra, and no – the work hasn’t been crossed This moustache is quite deliberate; the popular American singer, songwriter, and performance artist […]

Varieties – Frida Kahlo

The newest work of Anna Littsa aka FOXY, depicting Frida Kahlo, was the trigger for this post. Frida Kahlo – who doesn’t know her, the charismatic Mexican artist with the characteristic eyebrows and the light lady’s beard? She is an artist, whose life was marked by pain, suffering and her love for the painter Diego […]

HoF Auf der Donau in May

First and foremost, this walk was overshadowed by the realisation that yet another new name will be added to the wall of remembrance for the friends who died ahead of time. The crewmates of the GOOD BOYS have painted a number of pieces, to commemorate FANZ, who passed away on 13.4.22. Around the corner I […]

R.I.P. FANZ – Rest in love

I had already seen it during my last visit in Duisburg’s Emscherhalle, that little side note „R.I.P. FANZ“ next to a piece of graffit, but the bad news wouldn’t get into my head. Not long ago, in January, FANZ & CHEZ (GBS) had left their Buisiness card there. My next visit was HoF Auf der […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße in April

At HoF Unterführungsstraße, colour comes up to the eye of the viewer, and I am again and again amazed and surprised, at how the scenery has changed in just 4 weeks. This walk was dominated by the characters of Anna Littsa aka FOXY and Frank Sirius besides the usual suspects. Anna Littsa aka FOXY Anna […]
