Yesterday 5 pm the new mural of BASTARDILLA & Gabor Doleviczenyi at Dreilindenstraße 70 in downtown Essen has been opened in a public ceremony. As a guiding theme they have chosen education for their mural, for everything is nothing without education. The cherry on the cake was the removal of the scaffolding during the celebration, which was comparable with the public unveiling of a memorial.
The 17 goals of sustainable development of the United Nations have been enforced in January 2016. Urban art campaign „Weltbaustellen – Die Welt von morgen wächst vor Ort“ deals with those goals. 17 goals – 17 murals in North Rhine Westfalia. 8 different cities have got new designed facades in 2016; 9 murals are still to come in 2017.
A starry night sky is the background for a bar owl which is a symbol for wisdom and protection as well. It has caught a mouse whith a strange body: it has a set of stabilizers like a ballistic missile, undoubtedly a danger for the population at the ground. The owl has that strange mouse firmly in its grasp and grants a free way to a colony of leafcutter ants to collect feed comprising of cutted pieces of newspapers and other literature for their underground nest.
