These days BRAUSE, a flagship of Düsseldorf’s subculture, has turned 18 years of age and faded away simultaneously. With a final smile and a last party, it was celebrated once more, to say good bye in dignity and with a smile on the faces.
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.

Born in the 1980ies, Rocco and his brothers are a fixed value in the graffiti scene of Berlin. In January 2016, the collective „ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERES“ […]
In April heaven is close to hell. Especially last Saturday, street art community of Northrhine Westfalia seemed to have flocked together and have conspired to a complot to drive me to distraction.
