"Street Art Movements" - Community Spirit Of Hamburg [ Part3 ]

in streetart •  2 years ago

It seems Hamburg is packed with graffiti of great artists, a city who truly values good street art. Alternative Hamburg offers walking tours, showcasing diverse culture and community spirit. 

"You will learn about community protests, gentrification threats, pirate legends, urban art movements and get to visit squatted buildings, re purposed bunkers, nature reserves and creative hubs." 

Graffiti Art in Germany

One artist, I never heard of before, stands out. His name is Plotpot Ken and he is actually from Berlin but I saw his art at the Tattoo convention ....

To Tattoo Or Not To Tattoo? Visiting The Convention In Hamburg [Part2]

No One is Illegal!? My Visit in Hamburg, St.Pauli [Part1]

Plotbot KEN is a Berlin based street artist that has walked the walk. Starting from small scale, on the street, graphic paste ups and all the way to complicated monumental Stencils. Dark nuclear graphics that create a sensation of their own. He is actively involved by participating in street art events and undoubtedly is part of the significant Berlin stream of urban art. - Source

Graffiti and Science meet with Plotterroboter KEN and Charite Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Motor Neurone Disease (MND) experts team up to raise awareness for MS and MND using multimedia art. 

Back in Bali I planned to explore European cities again and I truly hope I can make it to the @steemitfest in Lisbon as well but not sure yet.

I feel extremely edgy, if I am in one spot for too long, always looking for any kind of festivals my whole life, the best reason to visit new places in our beautiful world. 

I missed the Rolling Stones concert but it was sold out anyways and way too expansive. Hamburg offers so many other interesting events and festivals.

Here we go Hamburg, after such long drive.......

It felt so good moving on the Autobahn again, driving from Vienna to Prague, passed by Dresden and Leipzig. 

We left at 1 pm and arrived in Hamburg Schanze bohemian area around midnight, where I checked in to a great airbnb flat close to the famous Cafe Stenzel, Schulterblatt 61

Its been a lot of years, since I was in Hamburg the last time. I can't remember exactly what bands I toured with but it was James Brown, Kool & The Gang or most likely The Commodores. I only remembered our fancy 5 star hotel somewhere in the center, where we stayed for a night and left right after the show but this time I got a very different vibe from this interesting German town. 

I didn't see much back in the late 80's but finally had the opportunity to find a very fascinating, cool and also quite green city with many parks.

 

The first day it was raining as expected but we were so lucky to wake up to a bright sunshine day, inviting us down at the harbour. 

 

Best Fischsoup on the planet !

Great tags 🙀

I was struck by the nuclear graphics by Plotpot Ken. So stark and haunting. Thanks for sharing this with me. I'm going to have to do some study of this person and his designs.

Looks like a great trip through Germany! Thanks for the post, @mammasitta.

Art by Plotpot Ken

Wow... I don't know what the right words to describe this. I might need 1000 words... Beauty and innocence stifled by the threat of terror and violence... It's more than that, though...

·
·
·

Much more than that indeed!

BTW: I had to up vote this artwork, hoping somebody discovers his work more

·

OMG, He is so so so so amazing. I have more photos of him. I put a link to explore a bit about his stuff. I love my little trips. Keeps me happy.

I guarded the Commodores when they were in Boston in the 70's. They were really, really nice people and great to be around (not like a lot of the other disco bands I guarded like the Tramps and Tavares).

The Rolling Stones??? Are they doing their Arthritis Tour?

·

You make me laugh out loud! I remember the Stones concert 20 something years ago when they said it would be their last.
Commodores, I have tons of stories to tell but offline hahaha
6 months on tour

·

I liked the Commodores, they were polite and respectful to me. My friend's dad had a security company that had the contract for Boston Music Hall. Because of my military background I did bodyguard work for him. I would pick the bands up at the airport and stay with them throughout their stay. Bob Seeger was a really nice guy, I remember. The ELO were a hoot (they were crazy!!! and fun to be around)

When the Stones did their Exile on Mainstreet tour they came to Boston Garden (drat) so I had to date Ann Marie Cogliano (the ugliest woman alive!) to get a backstage pass to meet them. Her dad was one of the bigshots. I wouldn't have minded dating her sister Michelle, but she was going with my friend Smitty.

·

Loved ELO! Jeff Lynne went on to a decent career on his own, too...

·
·
·
·

I've seen tons of concerts (I'm old) I saw Hendrix twice, The Who, Pink Floyd (with Syd Barrett) and the best concert hands down was the ELO on Halloween night in 1981!

I hope I will see Jimi one day on the other side :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Me too... I'd love to jam with him!

·

wowowwwwhhhh @richq11 Thats awesome! We all have so many secrets and rich life ! So good to know you. I wish you could come to Lisbon. I just booked my flight and hotel. Now I am looking for somebody to share room with me to save some cash. It was super expansive.
to be on tour with Commodores was amazing and unforgettable memories.

·
·
·
·

I wish I could come along too (You couldn't trust me in a hotel room wink-wink lol). I enjoyed the Commodores, I picked them up at the airport and spent 3 days with them and they were a joy to be around. They were respectful to me and to everyone else they came in contact with.

I got a twin bed room, enough for 4 hahaha! 💫
I also had one of my best tours with them.

Yes, but "where there's a will there's a way!" Or I guess at my age now, "The spirit's willing but the flesh is broken." I hope you come to the States one day!

Danke Schön!

"Street art seems to have been born of a desire for liberation from the tight codes of graffiti which had begun to seem dogmatic and restrictive. A new breed of urban artist started to reject or ignore “the rules”. Characters or logos became the focus of their art instead of letterforms; and stickers, stencils and wheatpasted posters became as common as spraypaint. These artists often “hacked” the urban environment, doctoring billboards, mimicking civic signage or simply making work that responded to its surroundings"

I wish I could visit your area soon as well. I don't know much about your country. Ive been in SE Asia and USA for too long I guess :)

Street art and town decoration is an important part of the culture specially it gives an introduction to the local culture to a foreigner visiting the place for the first time

So wonderful @mammasitta ...Bless
