Notes from a Berlin friend

DOROC JIFF BOYS (08/2018)

HoF Zollstraße in August

Vandalism – this is a commonly-used term that does not roll trippingly off my tongue. This term is often used when people talk about graffiti and do not know that much about this kind of art. Who reads my blog knows, I have a positive attitude for graffiti; legal or not, that is not what […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

I don’t know if this piece of EL BOCHO has been painted or glued to that wall. All I know is, that this piece is ancient history now. It was located in Friedrichshain, at the premises of a former car service station, which housed the techno club „Morlox“ until 2014, when it has fallen victim […]

Notes from a Berlin friend

Please don’t let me be misunderstood: everyone starts small and has to practice – and learn about the unwritten rules of the graffiti community.

#FUCKDEPRESSION

This memorial is not only meant as a pilgrim site for mourning fans of the former front man of the American rock band Linkin Park, […]

#FUCKDEPRESSION

Everybody who knows me knows that patience isn’t one of my strengths. I of course couldn’t wait for Saturday, when the new Chester Bennington Memorial with a brandnew portrait of the former lead singer of Linkin Park will be opened officially.

This was unusual, as the wall was lovingly equipped with pictures, flowers, wreaths and grave lights. I asked www egghead and as expected, it brought clarity. The new memorial is […]
