Murals in Essen (8th)

Quick and dirty – the gong sounds to the next round When I started the series „Murals in Essen“, I was angry about a friend, who described Essen as a real desert of art. I wondered about this preconception, unbraked by any expertise. I recommended him to open his eyes and look around. There is […]
