One thing is for sure – the change

Former administration building of colliery Amalie at Helenenstraße 110 is deserted. All those Kruppians have moved away, the building site of Essen 51 comes closer. 2010 the wall at the access road to the company premises was painted on behalf of the company by a number of local artists with the slogan „Developing the Future“, […]

HoF Kupferdreh in November

Hall of Fame Kupferdreh is one of our halls of fame, you are not allowed to spray on spontaneously; you have to ask for permission to paint there. I suppose, that is the reason why it doesn’t change its face that often, and so I do not visit it regularly. It’s difficult to impossible to […]

Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and Herr Müller-Lüdenscheidt’s lost heart

That corresponds entirely to my opinion. The newest coat of those walls was designed by the usual suspects. Look for yourself. THE TOP NOTCH & DEMON […]

Hall of Fame Kupferdreh in June

Shopping, a day out, BBQ – Opinions, what a perfect weekend should look like, differ widely. Some have more fun with colours than barbecuing. For my taste it is both, provided there is one (or two) beer included… But the one thing what is more important than anything else is to have someone, ideally friends, […]

#ICANTBREATHE – DEMON & THE TOP NOTCH

In times of Corona the discussion over the systemic relevance of some professions were a daily topic. Artists are important for our society. Similar to a seismograph they respond to the vibrations in society. Climate change, Trump or Corona, they usually are among the top to pick up a theme and put it on the […]
