Yellow press and trash TV, social media and fake news: The enormous power of media moguls not only provides cultural critics with a lot of material for discomfort - but also thrillers with the material for exciting, gripping stories. It is no coincidence that the spy girl in this motif appears as a display beauty on a smartphone, which in this case could also be called a spy phone. Digital media have not only revolutionized global communications, but also the interception and interception options for secret services and criminal hackers. What if a megalomaniacal media mogul came up with the idea of ​​not only aiming for monopolies, but also world domination with powerful accomplices and cyber terrorists?

In thrillers, a scenario with villainous media tsars is already played out. Ralf Schellen shows the flag(s): China and the British seem to be involved in a mysterious conflict here. It's no coincidence that the protagonist is apparently an Asian agent. Is there a perfidious plot behind this by a third party, a media power that wants to play off both? This is what the image-carrying smartphone suggests: “Cell phone communication and social media have long since become an enormous power,” says Schellen, “a dangerous power if they are misused for fake news and conspiracy theories.” Like a handy one, but destructive weapon with flat rate.

The printout is made on “aluminium composite”. Thanks to the latest generation of UV direct printing with 7 colors including light colors, the matt surface of the aluminum composite shines in absolutely rich colors and subtleties are displayed in high resolution down to the last detail. The pictures come with a pre-assembled profile suspension and are approximately 1 cm away from the wall. This gives your mural a floating look.


NOTE: The pictures of the "Spy Art Edition" are also offered in high-quality acrylic version in museum/gallery quality up to a size of 90x160 cm via the "Galerie Heidefeld und Partner" in Krefeld. You can of course also purchase the works shown here in the gallery. Please contact us for further information.


All images are usually printed directly after ordering. If an external printing service provider is involved in the creation, the delivery time can increase to up to 2 weeks.

Delivery is free of charge.

Treatment & Care

The print is applied with high quality ink on high quality art paper. To ensure longevity, the image should be protected from direct sunlight.

It is recommended that you only touch the pictures with gloves.

Only pictures made of acrylic glass can be cleaned with a clean, damp cloth without pressure.
