Not expecting anything bad I strolled around the city center, mainly to take a better picture of the STRIPED GUYS in Rathenaustraße / Kapuzinergasse. When I had found those guys on last saturday I only had my small pocket camera with me and so I wasn’t quite satisfied with my pictures. On my way to that spot I again met a penguin, escaped from Dortmund. Are two penguins already the first sign of an upcoming invasion? Further on, at GEKU Haus, there was a new piece of GIGO PROPAGANDA. His last piece from January „Is there a common sense of togetherness?“ is gone. This wall seems to be one of his favorite spots in the city. What beats everything was the low flying duck made by PQUS. As far as I know, this is the first piece of this Düsseldorf based artist in Essen. I like his strange duckbilled characters with a high brand recognition very much. And again it felt like those nice pieces all are personal gifts just for me; I was pleased as Punch. Thanks for all those gifts – and this is not my birthday!
