HoF Auf der Donau in January

The new year had a somewhat bumpy start. The weather conditions in the first few days were not very motivating to go for longer walks and so there are 3 weeks between my last visit at HoF Auf der Donau. Time enough to miss a lot. A lot of pieces were already older and accordingly […]

Murals in Essen (10th)

When I started the series „Murals in Essen“ to answer a good friend and refute his prejudice, that Essen is a real desert of art, especially street art, I would not have expected to write 10 episodes. With the 10th edition the number of murals has increased to one hundred. Hüweg; CVA – SHIK x […]

HoF Emscherhalle in January

Admittedly, the pieces shown today are not dewy, but this is the state of affairs as of last Saturday. The new year starts in Emscherhalle with the last pieces from 2022. SOON SOON x DOM45 x ? OREO x DATER & PUG GATO more pictures -> click

HoF Unterführungsstraße in January

The new year is now a week old; slowly the food coma has gone and the urge to move can no longer be suppressed. I didn’t expect to find much, but the spring-like weather has woken some of the writers from hibernation early. There are fresh colours in the tunnel! NUNA MGS & TRIS KERN […]

Essen Steele Ost in January

The new year has also arrived in Essen Steele Ost. When I stopped by on my traditional New Year’s visit, the pervasive smell of fresh paint made it clear that the New Year had been welcomed here with a colourful party. A New Year’s greeting to the usual suspects. May it be a good year […]

Picture postcard from Essen

Help! Snowy the snowman is already half thawed and the gingerbread man is up to his belly button in water. All the presents are threatening to float up and away. Climate change has arrived at Villa RÜ just in time for X-mas. MR.PILZ Location more pictures -> click

Supporting Structure Colour – COSY

Project „Stützwerk Farbe“, which has the ambitioned aim to design as much as possible of the grey concrete columns of Helbingbrücke, a bridge of highway A40 next to Essen’s main station, progresses. COSY, member of SAW SIGNS AND WONDERS recently added the ninth column to the project. There are still lots of grey and unpainted […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Would you believe that Essen is a well-known player in Northrhine Westfalia’s clubscene? In the early 1990s, the discotheque „Siggi’s Kalei“ was cult. Later Kay Shanghai took over and founded Hotel Shanghai, which is a location dedicated mainly to electro music. The facade of the club is designed frequently and has got it’s newest facelifting […]

Gustav Heinemann Brücke in December

The wall below Gustv Heinemann Brücke in Essen Werden doesn’t change it’s design that often, as it is not listed as one of Essen’s legal walls. Nevertheless new pieces of graffiti pop up here in very infrequent intervals. Why Chrome is so popular with writers is beyond me; they will have their reasons. In any […]
