A graffiti-action often is a trigger for very high penalty fees in Germany.  Because there are some police officers and homeowners who do not think, graffiti are art.  I have met a graffiti artist who sprays only on huge boards, dangling from the ceiling of the hall such as Super-Mobiles. He travels from exposition to exposition with that great idea and has no criminal charges, which could destroy his motivation.
The photo was shot by myself during a week of ART ACTIONS in my hometown Wuppertal, Germany. The organizer of this art event “Kraut’s Gallery” in the old ELBA factory was Thilo Küpper. View more at – the famous train with wheels on top (following the river WUPPER) is called SCHWEBEBAHN.

In Deutschland könnte eine Graffiti-Aktion ziemlich hohe Straf-Gelder auslösen. Weil es einige Polizisten und Hausbesitzer gibt, die das nicht für Kunst halten. Ich habe einen Graffiti-Künstler kennengelernt, der nur noch auf riesigen Pappen sprayt, die von der Hallen-Decke herabbaumeln wie Super-Mobiles. Damit fährt er von Ausstellung zu Ausstellung und hat keine Strafanzeigen mehr am Hals.
