Hafendampf 2022/2

Teenager! As if I hadn’t seen it coming! I think this is a novelty – we never had a Hafendampf event twice a year; somehow I could get used to it! But as teenagers are, erratic, unpredictable and with an ever-burning fuse, word somehow got around last Friday that there would be an extraordinary Hafendampf […]

Hafendampf in the course of the years – The Artists

Today our countdown comes to an end. Tomorrow the big party will start at Bottroper Straße. Of course I cannot end without mentioning the „Coolest of All“ at last. The CVA crew, they all are our local heroes, and they are much more than SHIK and BRICKS & DRIPS! The crew, based in Essen, were […]

Varieties – Santa

Todays topic was predictable. Varieties of Santa on St. Nicholas Day – thats a matter of honour. And it’s easy as well; there is always a supply. Every year again. What else? Ah – yes – GREETS FROM SANTA – HoHoHo! SMACK GFS „GREETS FROM SANTA“ (12/2020) SEL EIER (12/2020) SHIK CVA (12/2020)

HoF Auf der Donau in November

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 […]

Spring is in the air …

… and it was a nearly perfect day in the south side of Essen, up to the moment when I came across my favorite tunnel for pedestrians. Favorite because of the squirrels, which populated that tunnel since 2015. My little friends have changed territory. I hope they will be back sometime. I miss them sorely. […]

HoF Villa RÜ in April

This time Hall of Fame Villa RÜ was dominated by „The Coolest of All“, CVA crew. I don’t know who the originator of the pink unicorn was, but I suppose CVA has had a finger in the pie as well. MR.TUNER CVA – THE COOLEST OF ALL – SHET SHIK and others

Gustav Heinemann Brücke in the course of the years

Werden Bridge is the last in a long row of bridge constructions, connecting Werden and Essen since 1065, when a bridge in Werden was first mentioned in a document. Today’s structure was opened 1968 and since 1982 it bears the name of the 3rd German Federal President, Gustav Heinemann. Looking at old photos, this was […]

HoF Zollstraße – Requiem, Swansong, Farewell

I was invited to take a street art trip with friends in Dortmund yesterday, but the night brought a lot of snow and so we decided to avoid longer journeys and stayed in Essen. The idea was to have a look at HoF Zollstraße and take a cup of tea later. On site I got […]
