Most of my friends think that’s crazy; means my mania not to leave home without my camera. I have seen this happening only too often, stumbling unexpectedly into something requiring a camera, and where is my equipment? At home! Horrible! Impossible! Today this was ready again. I had arranged to meet a friend, to get […]

Probably you are fed up hearing anything of Phatty, but I don’t! In Essen today was an awful day with typical November attitude. That is why I was housebound and as in Berlin the weather was similar, I was surprised to get pictures, freshly shot today in wind and weather. I know this very well, […]

Winter is coming fast now and so it was quite clear, what to post next from the pictures, my Berlin friend has sent from his flying visit of Frankfurt/Oder. Travelling this town and looking around for street art, no one seems to be able to escape them: SPOARE and his friends seem to have a […]

The pictures of SPOARE (and SOLD) in Frankfurt/Oder, at Oderbrücke, reminded me of a piece I had seen in Munic 2016. That was the first time, the tag SPOARE had appeared on my radar, and this was the one and only encounter with that tag. I never had seen it again, until I came to […]

My Berlin friend has payed Frankfurt/Oder a flying visit and as always, he came back with a stunning collection of pictures. It was a struggle to make a selection, but at least I decided for a stunning mural, designed by SPOARE and SOLD at a pillar of Oderbrücke. It seems that the heraldic animal of […]

The pictures my Berlin friend has shot at Mühlenstraße 6, have reminded me that I have seen a similar mural made by INNERFIELDS in Hamburg’s Karoviertel 2015. The same topic of promotion and the same style. In both cases the artists have decorated the walls with elements from the world of the product. The visual […]

A lot of artists have worked for advertising; who wonders, artists have to pay rents too. The question, if an artwork loses quality when it was made for promotion purposes only, is often hotly debated. Some photographers find it under their dignity to take pictures of advertising walls. Me and my Berlin friend certainly do […]

I plead guilty – I have a big crush on this damned dog named Phatty, even if it seems to have sharp teeth. Just to please me, my Berlin friend has consulted his archive and picked out some photos of Phatty, he has taken over the years. I will not withhold them from you any […]

My Berlin friend comes with a surprise for the weekend. Guests are welcome irrespective of whether or not they are going to bring gifts. It seems that Drew Straker aka THE MURALIST, graffiti artist based in Perth, Australia, is in Berlin. He has left some gifts in Friedrichshain. Straker probably was the first artist to […]
