Adler 59 forever

I’ve no idea how many times I’ve said it, nor how many times I have to say it again in the future: my favorite spot in Dortmund’s Unionviertel is the backyard of Adlerstraße 59. I’m still waiting for someone to give me a hint, to find a spot to top the special atmosphere in this place. […]

Wanted – Chameleon

A heart for birds

There seem to be a new player with a fresh idea in Essen’s street art scene, who has a heart for birds. He/she/they install/s lovingly designed nesting boxes midst the desert, we’re calling city centre.

Have you ever been in Aachen? I wasn’t there until yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, all I knew `til yesterday was, that Aachen is a highly attractive destination.

STRIPED GUYS has done a great job. P.S. After the publication of this article I got a message, that most of these pipe cleaner […]

Ladybug – Landing or Lift Off?

Not long ago, in January, EINSA CE has had a solo show at Sold Out Gallery in Bochum. I have been there and spent a long time viewing his creatures. Non more so his chameleon with its eye rolling mechanism and this bug! Now it has followed me to Essen. I hope it will stay […]

  SWEETSNINI AFD is healable – Go Vote Heliosstrasse, Cologne

Hedgehopper from Düsseldorf sighted downtown Essen

Not expecting anything bad I strolled around the city center, mainly to take a better picture of the STRIPED GUYS in Rathenaustraße / Kapuzinergasse. When I had found those guys on last saturday I only had my small pocket camera with me and so I wasn’t quite satisfied with my pictures. On my way to […]
