Stern Freihand Veredlung


The drawing pencil in hand since youth, specialized in lowbrow art and custom painting since 2009: This is “STERN freehand refinement” in full trade. No painting surface is sacred to him: His works find space on wood, metal, glass, leather, car bodies, house walls, tools ect.

The daily business includes cups and individually created gift ideas, tattoo templates and logo design to elaborate CutOut installations. Meanwhile, his works are already collector’s items …. Let’s see what he has in Walldorf!

His creative workshop is located under the same roof as “PEPPER’S”, the 50’s bistro of his wife Sandra. A true insider tip, comfortably furnished like in grandma’s parlor and always worth a visit. In addition, there is a diverse store with many women’s accessories ( also present at the WEEKENDER !!!) Moonshiner for men and countless eye-catchers!!! Many visitors come several times, because you can not perceive everything at the first visit! 

Where is’n that?  “PEPPER’S Art Inn Shop” & “STERN Freehand Refinement” * In der Teichmatt 1 * 79689 Maulburg (Facebook & Instagram)



Mosaik Massaker (Hartmut “Mini Kretz)


Thaly’s Tiki Art


When Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States in 1959, the exotic tiki wave spilled over with full force onto the American mainland  – and later also reached Walldorf. 

With us again is globetrotter Alex from Thalys Tiki Art. With chainsaw instead of guitar in his suitcase, Thaly travels and works for various scene events (rock’n’roll, surf, punk, etc.) and tiki bars around the world, where his art is in demand. Always following his motto: 

“My Way To Rock’n’Roll”

We are happy to have him on board again. Based on his sound backdrop, you will hardly be able to miss him outside the gates. 

Witness how a tiki like this is made.
