Ladybug – Landing or Lift Off?

Not long ago, in January, EINSA CE has had a solo show at Sold Out Gallery in Bochum. I have been there and spent a long time viewing his creatures. Non more so his chameleon with its eye rolling mechanism and this bug! Now it has followed me to Essen. I hope it will stay […]

Yesterday 5 pm the new mural of BASTARDILLA & Gabor Doleviczenyi at Dreilindenstraße 70 in downtown Essen has been opened in a public ceremony. As a guiding theme they have chosen education for their mural, for everything is nothing without education.

Hafendampf 2017 – 1st day of the jump

Citizens of Essen normally don’t know that we have a city port and when they know about, they mostly think of soccer as the stadium of Rot Weiss Essen is located at Hafenstraße. The senior generation probably will remember that Hafenstraße once was notorious for it’s red lantern district. Today Hafenstraße houses one of Essen’s […]

Is Hafendampf already casting shadows?

Today I have made a walk at one of my favorite street art spots in Essen, one of our Halls of Fame. I try to visit „Auf der Donau“ frequently and find something new again and again. Artists playing there have to be very good otherwise their pieces die a sudden death. The pieces I […]
