Gallerage shows works of BYRDO aka BIRD

The backyard of Schützenbahn 19 (Atelierhaus Schützenbahn) hosts Gallerage. Gallerage – the word is a combination of gallery and garage. That makes sense, once a garage, the room has been converted into a gallery and is now used for changing exhibitions by local artists. I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming exhibition […]

HoF Auf der Donau in September

This cactus is turning out to be a bloody challenge cup! I had just learned that this character was not created by BRES, but by Nick Knite. Only a little later, another of these prickly little guys is found at HoF Auf der Donau. PABO, about whom I unfortunately know nothing, is apparently the one […]

HoF Auf der Donau in September

With a big fat grin I was welcomed at Hall of Fame Auf der Donau this morning. I hadn’t seen it for a long time and had already missed my Mister Earthworm. So he still exists – which makes me personally very happy. It does me good, that naughty grin. A few metres further on, […]

Backboard Jam Vol. 2

On 27.08.22 from 1pm until late night, Backboard Jam on the grounds of graffiti agency MORE THAN WORDS went into the second round as part of this year’s harbour walk. As a supporting programme, MTW had invited a number of well-known graffiti artists to redesign the walls in the immediate vicinity of the agency. ND […]

Bilk S – Opinion not Judgement

Actually, the last article concerning the change at Bilk station was supposed to go online yesterday. A report on my walk in Dortmund harbour and the Backboard Jam last weekend was planned for today. But I’ve received so many messages on Instagram about the changes at Bilk station that I want to add this post. […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Now the long wall opposite the entrance to the station remains to be discussed only. For some time it has been firmly in the hands of the graffiti writers, not always to the advantage of a universally pleasing appearance. The times when paste-ups and stickers shared the space here, are unfortunately over. At least I […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

The Friedrichstraße railway subway at Bilker Bahnhof has long been a hot spot for street art of all kinds, but this area has recently undergone a radical transformation. At the entrance and exit of the tunnel there is a wall element that is remotely reminiscent of an alkhoven or a niche. This niche has always […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Let’s go on with the changes at Bilk S. Today the columns are the topic on my agenda. There is no shortage of pillars at Bilk station. I have never counted them, but I have often photographed parts of them. They have always been used for billposting, although not always for advertising. Let’s have a […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Lets have a look at the changes at the busy pedestrian walkway between Bilk S and Weberstraße, leading to the next supermarket. The surrounding walls and the city drainage pumping station were rather annoying and not always eye-catching for passers-by.

Hit but not fallen

This time I was a bit afraid to visit Düsseldorf Bilk. It was unclear what I would find there after the brand new mural „FOR THE BRAVE AND DISPLACED“ by Düsseldorf based artist L.E.T. at Bilk S had been almost destroyed with a paint bomb. A targeted attack; who goes for a walk and has […]
