Another picture post…
… but not as long as yesterday’s.
This time we went to Wuppertal, which is Velbert’s neighbor town. Again… a little bit of history, taken from Wikipedia:
Wuppertal (German pronunciation: [ˈvʊpɐtaːl] ( listen)) is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located in and around the river Wupper valley, and is situated east of the city of Düsseldorf and south of the Ruhr area. With a population of approximately 350,000, it is the largest city in the Bergisches Land. Wuppertal is known for its steep slopes, its woods and parks, and its suspension railway, the Wuppertal Schwebebahn. Two-thirds of the total municipal area of Wuppertal is green space. From any part of the city, it is only a ten-minute walk to one of the public parks or woodland paths.

Ugly architecture, striking colors.
forebodingly through the night
is it autumn yet?
typical architecture of the “Bergisches Land” with the typical green shutters.
Bruschetta. Tasted awesome!!
And now this. As seen in an art gallery. I mean… seriously? Who in their right mind would pay 1.250 Euro for this? Yeah… it’s of course all a matter of taste and how you perceive “art”. I think I’ve mentioned this in another post when we visited an art exhibition: if I see a painting and like it, I like it. If I see a painting and think it looks like shit and the experts consider it art… fine. The painting in the photo – to me – looks like shit. Full of negativity. Would drive me insane having it up on the wall in my home.
And this? Someone decided to paint some big tits. Done.
That this has even found its way into an art gallery… But I guess, only idiots like me who know nothing about the art of painting and only color silly colouring books would think that this simply looks AWFUL. Sorry.
