GERMANY: Fabulous CESAR ONE and the STONED NOMADS CREW – SNC

Krusty the Clown and Fred Flintstone, Garfield or Bugs Bunny. If you discover such characters individually or integrated into larger wall paintings, then this probably indicates the workings of the STONED NOMADS CREW, short SNC and in particular the crew member CESAR ONE. And this article here is exactly about this creative artist. CESAR ONE founded the SNC in 1999 with the  KRIZLA. Together with MIND21, SPASM, KOMA and other homies and supporters they form the team. For more than 20 years the crew has been increasingly supplying class material in the Rhine-Main-Area in Germany but also all around the globe. Check out the interview.

BELGIUM: Banksy Exhibition in Antwerp

He is probably the artist of the moment in the stencil sector and by doing freak out art at random suprising places which is just making you think about issues and art also. And this went worldwide and the guy is keep on doing. Very nice!. Even in Corona times, he shoots really good stuff! Everyone knows him, but they don’t know him. Confusing, isn’t it? Such a short drumroll. None other than „BANKSY”. There was a great exhibition about his atworks in Antwerp at the same time while we have been around and we actually really found it! That was worth two Brouwer’s beers in a row! We just saw it by accident, it is cool, but we don´t have time to do it later, so means we have to do it now! It was defilitely worth it!

MALTA: Streetart Malta – Conservative in ochre, but studded with small Diamonds

Malta was initially a disappointment when it comes to street art. Everywhere only the color ochre and ochre and again ochre on these strange conservative stones. But in between, and often half-hidden, there are still small oases of urban art. Some of these creative spaces have been generated by the fantastic crew of ADD MORE COLORS during the few utterly legendary MALTA STREETART FESTIVALS, while another important spot is certainly the colorful and famouse MSIDA SKATE PARK, of which the MSA MALTA SKATEBOARD ASSOCIATION is taking care of. But we found even more super awesome and also less awesome stuff. Especially the great local artists COOKER, JUSTINK’S AND MURALS or TWITCH should be mentioned here. They are talented productive and heartful busy all over the island by bringing diversity on this rock. Or let´s say multiple rocks. There are some more islands. And yes, we have also streetart footage even from the island Gozo! Check out the huge gallery with around 1000 photos and numerous sub-articles.

MALTA: Duck Village – Ornate Bird Refuge

Manoel Island in the bay of Gżira is not the highlight of the city, but worth a visit for a short walk. There is a small fort, a bathing spot popular with locals and otherwise closed ruins or construction sites. The excursion was really nothing special and in absolutely hot heat we also missed the bathing spot. For a short inbetween visit you can pass by the spot, but you should not necessarily do this at noon time because there´s no shade at all. But you will get a nice view of Valletta and Sliema over the water. In addition shortly after the bridge to the island, there is the lovingly and creatively assembled Duck’s Village, which now houses not only ducks, but many other bird species and even hares and guinea pigs. Just like the motto: All Animals in Harmony.

PORTUGAL: Streetart Porto – International Flair and Portuguese Graffiti

Of course, a city with so much quality also needs a street art scene of the extra class. That’s what Porto can do. The decaying charm of some buildings contributes very well to highlighting the art even more. Many local artists, painters and graphic artists are at work here. But international artists also have spots in the heart of Porto. In addition to the azulejos, which are already great art in themselves, the open-air galleries expand and open up the cultural horizon of the city.
