Mr. Earthworm is back again to stay

I still have no idea who is responsible for this funny worm. He/she is just one more player in the game of making Essen’s boring downtown more attractive. Essen needs more of them!

Paste-Up; Unknown Artist;  "Mr. Earthworm"

I met Mr. Earthworm with its naughty grin the first time as a paste-up near University in June 2015. I’m not quite sure if it is the same artist, but I suppose so. The paste-up was made of brown wrapping paper and was pasted up under a bridge. So it was there for longer, as it was well protected from weather rigors. Whenever I passed it, it managed to enhance my mood, but unfortunately it was torn away later and IMG_0009after a long time I was happy to recover my Mr. Earthworm quite recently at a spot at Marktkirche. Now the artist seem to have found his style. Paper is changed to a more resistent material. I guess the character was cut out of cardboard or a thin plastic sheet. Definitely this funny guy is very welcome in the streets of Essen! Today I met him again at a walk down Kettwiger Straße. He smiled at me from an elevated position at a sculpture called „Stadtzeichen 003Kohle“ at  Kasteienstraße/Viehofer Straße.
