Hong Kong | Wall Art Scouting in Sheung Wan

While personally I got very, very tired of those boring and overflowing instagram selfies in front of painted walls around the world, it is not the paintings that annoy me, but more the mainstream individuals posing in front of them. As a world metropolis, Hong Kong, of course, features many photogenic hotspots for wannabe influencers, so during this layover I headed out towards Hollywood Road on Hong Kong Island.

And it proved once again, that a graffiti does not need a person in front or have to be huge to leave an impression or to add to the surroundings. Continue reading

Munich | Church Chic – St. Matthäus

St. Matthäus, or St. Matthew´s in English, is a protestant church just outside the ancient Sendlinger Tor Square in downtown Munich. I pass this rather modern construction almost every day, and it was not until I came up with the idea to start the series “Church Chic” that I finally laid foot inside. Continue reading
