One thing is for sure – The Change

Shame – Essen tidies up the inner city. A chameleon and an old piece of ADD ENTRY is lost. In times of Corona (#FUCKCORONA), people are bored and have too much time. Their normal strategies of distraction don’t work during the Lockdown. Fitness studios, cafes, pubs and every other beloved entertainments – nada! So they […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

In October 2017, under the umbrella of TRANSURBAN, BETONT.ES has painted the backyard of Atelierhaus Schützenbahn. Now, some years later, the facade was redesigned by a group of artists based in Dortmund, due to a project of Werkstrand.

One thing is for sure – the change

Even if this wall in the south side of Essen is not a wall listed to be legal, it frequently gets a new face by the local writers and I have learned over the years, to visit it from time to time, in order to observe the changes. My yesterdays visit brought only one new […]

One thing is for sure – the change

Those who know this blog know, the change is a recurring theme here. Sometimes you win – sometimes you loose. What you get is something new, even if you haven’t asked for it. This time it’s more a loss; 04/2019 I have made the first picture of it and it was untouched since then. Now […]

One thing is for sure – the change

My timing is terrible. My last visit at HoF Villa RÜ is just two days ago and during this walk the question occupied me, where the hell KEDO has gone to paint his pieces. His last piece at Villa RÜ was in July 2020. Hardly retruned home, www-egghead brought a new piece of KEDO at […]

In October 2016, GIGO PROPAGANDA has painted the backyard of Atelierhaus Schützenbahn for UFAM Ruhr. Now, some years later, the backyard was redesigned by a group of artists due to a project of Werkstrand. GIGO PROPAGANDA (UFAM Ruhr 10/2016) PASS and others for Werkstrand (10/2020)

One thing is for sure – the change

When I took the first pictures of the mural created by various local artists at the bycicle and pedestrian ramp, which connects parking lot P2 at Messe Essen with Rüttenscheider Straße, it was already old and it already had set moss. That was June 2014 and I was a newbie without a clue. It was […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Owing to many sponsors and donations, since November 2016 it sparkles in its full beauty again, Albert Hien’s Light sculpture „ZOO“. It tops and decorates the building at Rüttenscheid’s central Market place, which houses a combination of newsstand and public restroom facility. Of course the kiosk is targeted by street artists of all stripes. I […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Forwarding: The wall shown is not a legal wall. I have no idea, who the owner of this wall is, but one is for sure: he/she must be a fan of graffiti, as he/she tolerates the frequently popping up of new pieces of the finest graffiti artists of NRW. TEACH TONEY DEMON THE TOP NOTCH […]
