One Thing is for sure – The Change

„Schmuddelecken“ – Dirty Corners – each town nows them. You’ll recognize them by the people hurrying by with lowered eyes, without taking notice for the closer environment. Street art and graffiti adore such places and I love them too. They very often produce the gems I am hunting for. In Essen one of those places […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Who knows, how often the painting of the bridge at Oberschlesienstraße has changed since my last picture in January 2015. The neighbourhood around Storp9 is not on my regular routes to observe the changes around me. This time I visited it because of the hint of a friend and found a number of changes. Storp9 […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

It has taken a while to find this wall, which is not listed as a legal wall in Essen. Nevertheless, renovations are carried out here on a regular basis. Since 2017, when I stumbled across it by chance, I visit it frequently, to keep an eye on the changes. VEGAS CKSM DEMON & THE TOP […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The wall at GeKu Haus, situated at Kreuzeskirchstraße, in the heart of Creative Quarter North, is redesigned frequently, since I have discovered it in June 2014. In September 2019 MR.OREO had painted a portrait of Greta Thunberg, who is the face of „Fridays for Future“ movement, to support the protests for a better climate policy. […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Since my first visit in Dortmund’s Unionviertel I was keen of an old advertising mural at Kraftstoff, a popular pub and beergarden at Augustastraße 2. Unfortunately I didn’t got a proper picture of it and when I was there in October 2020, I found the facade scaffolded and did’nt foresee anything good, I didn’t know […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The wall opposite Dortmunder U, designed in November 2013 with „HYPE“ by Mark Gmehling, has got a new face. Curated by 44309 STREET//ART GALLERY, artist collective „MAN KENNT SICH“ (Herr Choko, A.Elementar, Kasino 44, Call Me Marc & Dr.Aco) has redesigned this eyecatcher wall in the heart of Unionviertel. Unfortunately the exhibition „I was here“, […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

What a pity – A missed Opportunity On my way to Hall of Fame Auf der Donau, for years I have passed an advertising mural at Hohenburgstraße 80. When I last passed there, the wall was scaffolded and whitened. For the future I expected a new mural in the same style as before. What a […]

One thing is for sure – the change

For a long time the facade of Villa RÜ, facing the walls of the Hall of Fame at the footpath to Christinenpark, was almost untouched by the writters. Then, in May 2020, some recycling containers have been established. Those containers were the perfect ladder and the go-signal for the writers to occupy more space. The […]

One thing is for sure – the change

Former administration building of colliery Amalie at Helenenstraße 110 is deserted. All those Kruppians have moved away, the building site of Essen 51 comes closer. 2010 the wall at the access road to the company premises was painted on behalf of the company by a number of local artists with the slogan „Developing the Future“, […]
