Graffiti for a Beginner – Continuation

2014 was the year, my infection with the virus, called „Street Art“ broke out in full strength. My mania for this kind of art didn’t meet on much understanding in my environment, but I couldn’t stop running for more. From 14.9. – 30.9.2012 the sound barriers of A40, the most frequented highway of the Ruhr […]

Corona Dampf

Since its birth 2013, Hafendampf, which is the top graffiti festival in our region, had to deal with various difficulties. In 2014 and 2015 it had to be outsourced to our halls of fame due to reconstruction works at the harbour site. Nevertheless, Hafendampf is an event with tradition, this year it would have been […]

Gabion Wall near Rombergpark has got a new design by Dortmund’s finest

In July it was announced by „art is just a four letter word“ that David Radon & ROOKIE THE WEIRD have painted a nice wall in Dortmund. My question „where the hell is that damned wall?“ was answered immediately: „above Schondelle inbetween B54 and Rombergpark“. OK – for me that sounded a bit cryptic. Schondelle? […]

Dorsten – wall protection by grafitti? It works!

I use to visit Dorsten frequently as my family lives there, but I never suspected Dorsten to be a streetart hot spot. My last visit gradually changed my mind. I wandered through the city and found unexpectedly some nice pieces of renowned graffiti writers.
