One Thing is for sure – The Change

When I started to take pictures of HoF Villa RÜ, my point of interest was the painted wall. The façade of the building was almost untouched by the writters and so it’s a problem to find a proper picture to document the condition of the façade at that time. It was – and still is […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Hall of Fame Villa RÜ is well known to be one of Essen’s legal walls which can be painted spontaneously and without permission. But only the wall opposite the building is legal; the house wall of the villa is made of open-pored stone and is not approved for spraying, which was well respected for a […]

Bilk S has got a facelifting

Until recently, Bilk S was a stop for local trains only and the surroundings for the common passer-by not really attractive. Entrance, walls and surrounding columns were playground for the street art scene and the pasted and sprayed walls gave the passer-by cause for many a rant. No question, for the street art enthusiast a […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

My last visit in Bilk was for 40° Urban Art Festival 2020. Corona and it’s latest variety, was the reason why I was somewhat reluctant to make excursions to neighbouring cities like Dortmund or Düsseldorf. No wonder that there were a lot of changes during the years; also some, that are no longer new. Friedrichstraße […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

My last visit at Adler59 was a very long time ago (#FUCKCORONA) and it was overdue to have a look. Of course, I have found a lot of new stuff, but the most important first: Adler59 shares it’s backyard with Falkenstraße 6. Both doorways are designed (only of the best). And while the doorway at […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

I am asked again and again if this wall is a legal wall and about the exact location of it. To say it once and for all: No, this is not a legal wall and it is not allowed to paint it spontaneously. I don’t know who the owner is, but the concept of protecting […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Hohenburgstraße 88 is located in close vicinity to HoF Auf der Donau. It’s a private house and the shown wall is not a legal wall. It’s bad luck that the house is located on the direct way to the train station: practically it is on the way home and very often used for utilising leftovers […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

In 1986 Martin Magielka founded his label RAP X in Bochum Ehrenfeld, which has become one of the best-known brands in the streetart/streetwear-scene. The shop at Alte Hattinger Straße 11, designed 2017 by ENOC801, has got a new face by Berlin based artist Matthias Gephart recently. RAP X – Alte Hattinger Straße – ENOC801 (10/2017) […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The Change – that is a fact in street art and graffiti, I had and still have the most problems to accept and deal with. It’s a never ending story of loss as well as win and I can very well understand an artist’s anger, when someone else doesn’t deal with an artwork respectfully. In […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Viehofer Platz currently is getting a new face. It was already painted in the past, but I do not know when this design was created, nor who the artist was. Those paintings were in a bad condition when I was there in 2017 to take my first pictures there. Today I’m happy about the few […]
