Fronx – Werkstrand & Mr.Pilz have finished a new mural

The beat of life is at Frohnhauser Straße, but turning into one of the quiet side streets like Jacob-Grimm-Straße, you’ll find yourself in a quiet and shady universe with old trees. A peaceful neighbourhood, where fox and hare bid each other goodnight. Especially the residents of house 5 nowadays may have the impression to live […]

Essen gets on the bike

At ETEC, next to A40, the most frequented motorway in our region, Ursula Meyer has finished her new mural „Essen steigt auf“. Inveterate motorists softly are motivated by two of the artist’s iconic characters on bikes, to change their style of travel to a more climate-conscious one. Location

They have moved to […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

It has taken a while to find this wall, which is not listed as a legal wall in Essen. Nevertheless, renovations are carried out here on a regular basis. Since 2017, when I stumbled across it by chance, I visit it frequently, to keep an eye on the changes. VEGAS CKSM DEMON & THE TOP […]

Gabor Doleviczenyi (Zinnober) has painted the facade of a private house in Altenessen following the designs of Moni van Rheinberg

Moni van Rheinberg was an artist who has left varied and lasting traces in public space in our town. She died far too early in 2006 in Essen. Her murals are among the oldest murals in the city and are highly respected here. As a tribute to the artist, 2016 her son had commissioned artist […]
