Project Description

In November 2017 I spent a week at the Tollwood Festival in Munich. The winter edition takes place at the Theresienwiese (where the Octoberfest ends just a few weeks before). The Tollwood is Europe’s biggest organic food and art festival seeing more than 1 Million visitors each year! The mural painted is called ‘#5vor12‘, a German expression signifying it is ample time to do something. It was inspired by the festival’s motto: All of Us and is an interpretation of the 3 monkeys, don’t hear evil, don’t see evil and don’t speak (about) evil. Instead of acting, people tend to ignore the most pressing issues of our time like global warming, pollution, refugee crisis and war.
