GERMANY: Urban Art Bochum – Universitätsstraße Wiemelhausen – Kings Wall

Today we show you some masterpieces from Bochum from the “Kings Wall” at the Universitätsstraße. In autumn 2021 the retaining wall on Universitätsstraße got a new look and 28 graffiti artists were involved in the redesign. About 20 years ago the wall was primarly decorated with large-scale graffiti.
