I don’t know exactly when KIBE & BIRD will start their mural for TRANSURNAN at Brüderstraße 1. According to my information, the licence to operate the mobile elevated platform in the pedestrian zone has been given. Meanwhile the artists have made finger exercises at Oskar-Hoffmann-Straße 85.

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. The cherry on the cake was the removal of the scaffolding during the celebration, which was […]
One of my latest walks in Düsseldorf Oberbilk brought me to a mural at Mindener Straße 30. A huge detached wall, designed by Herr von Bias aka HRVB the WEIRD (Berlin) x KJ263 (Düsseldorf), two renowned artists with unmistakable handwriting.
