Hagen Mural Projekt

Yes – I know this is late! But to save my honor I have to confess, that I have heard about this just today. I would like to draw your attention to Hagen Mural Festival, which is almost over. From 23.7. – 1.8.2021 this project produces 10 new murals in Hagen, which was badly affected […]

Don’t Coco the Nut – Happy Birthday Coconut

Thank heaven! A touch of normalcy in all those disasters that have recently come upon us. Birthday parties in writer circles are wonderful. Of course the crew mates of ALME and other friends of COCONUT have had party fun. But they not only gave gifts to their closest friends, but to anyone passing by. ALME […]

Gustav-Heinemann-Brücke has got a face lifting

My last visit at the wall below Gustav-Heinemann-Brücke was in January. At that time the painting with a number of funny Santas was related to Xmas. The face of this wall doesn’t change that often, as it is not listed as one of Essen’s legal walls. Nevertheless new pieces of graffiti pop up here in […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
