Photographer Salvador Seda has visited this area several times and created various galleries and interesting story writings with information to the artists of the tags, bombings and graffiti at this spot.

Israel / Performance / SocialThis is the story of Shoshke. A super heroine brought to life. And it’s probably one of the weirdest and funniest but above all most motivating stories here on this channel so far. The creator himself, namely the Israeli artist Zeev Engelmayer repeatedly takes on the role of his self-designed comic super heroine. Then he just becomes Shoshke in a special costume. An idea for an artistic performance has developed into an unbridled dynamic of its own and an independent character within Zeev’s psyche. That´s Shoshke. It´s not schizophrenic, more like a symbiosis. Zeev loves it and he frequently is setting her free. Because Shoshke makes always and every few days crazy but fabulous actions. Currently, according to Marker Magazine “She” is one of the 100 most influential people in Israel. And we need some more Shoshkes on this world! She fights for the good and important things. Take some time for this article. It’s going to be strange and complex, but for sure as well funny and super interesting. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...

Painter / USA“In each painting I am committed to creating sacred space, portals into imagination using abstract expression, color and texture. My paintings express an internal landscape that provokes emotions.” Drea Jensen – For the artist Andrea Jensen art is not only her chosen form of expression; it is also a special power and energy that can deeply touch and connect people. Her creative abstract works are doors to the mind and to the heart, they express emotions, good and bad, and touch the viewer on an individual and personal level. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...
Germany / StreetartIn the Rummelsburg district of Berlin there was once a legendary Hall of Fame, where grandiose works of art and graffiti were created over decades.

Culturists / Gastro / Lithuania / StreetartDelicious burgers and fantastic graffiti diversity next to the table. When you go to Vilnius you should definitely visit the unconventional artist and alternative dinner place Keulė Rūkė in the Pylimo street 66 near the train station. The whole restaurant, the walls outside and inside, the garden area in the backyard and even the roof and the floor, just everything is painted and bombed. It´s a wonderfully loaded color clash you wouldn´t expect in this street close to the tracks. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...

Cambodia / GastroIn fact, when discovering a country, you should of course immerse yourself in the local cuisine and homemade specialities and explore the unknown flavours. But we had been travelling in Asia for a while and hadn’t eaten real good bread for a long time. You rarely find this around, let alone a real pizza. It was all the more surprising to suddenly come across a cosy pizza bungalow on the beach at the farthest tip of the paradisiacal island of Koh Rong, where one of the most delicious Italian-style pizzas imaginable was baked. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...

South America / Streetart / UruguayOn the first glance you could assume that the place is somewhere around the Baltic or at the Wadden Sea. The architecture doesn´t really look very South American. As well there is this huge but small white lighthouse, which reminds more on Denmark or the German Otto comedy movies. But the palms, the warm climate and the high waves will disabuse you. La Paloma is located at the southeastern coast of Uruguay and it´s covered with awesome paintings, fantastic streetart and hidden graffiti. We brought you nice photo material from our last trip to the little chillspot. It´s an insider tip for surfer, artists and mountainbiker. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...
Malta / StreetartOn the island of Malta in the neighbourhood Msida we found an interesting graffiti area. If you walk through a small tunnel on the north side of the Msida Skate Park, you don’t get out directly on one of the other sides of the road. There is again an open space, from where the paths branch out again and lead into further tunnels. The entire walls of this small plaza are of course all painted and frequently there apear new fantastic ones. Check out the photos of the great artworks we captured at this hidden little art space. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...
Canada / StreetartThe fantastic artist MAXILIE MARTEL aka MONO SOURCIL from Montreal embellishes huge walls and facades in urban areas with her colorful and comiclike murals filled with weird and funny-scary characters. She started with small stickers and initially drew mainly business people in stress mode. At some point the figures became more and more oblique, the works of art bigger and bigger. Still her trademark is the “uni-brow”, which appears continously on her artworks and also reflects the meaning of the name. Mono Sourcil means uni-brow. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...

Chile / Culturists / StreetartWhen you look on the photographs and the way how Salvador Seda presents and documents his fantastic findings you probably will get quite often the word historian in mind. He definitely is an ambitious street art hunter and as well a wonderful history lover with an excited focus and patient eye for the little details. Salvador is a searcher for the specialties what urban life can offer, gives impulses and tries as well to teach a little bit about the background of wall paintings in the city. At the moment he is building up the Streetart Map of Angol in Chile. >>> READ MORE [...] Read more...
