Without water everything would be: nothing. Like air and light, H2O is a central element of life in its most diverse forms. And it's not just for thriller authors that water is an immensely valuable resource that can be incorporated into exciting stories and murderous conflicts - especially when opponents try to turn off the tap. Then, however, another rooster will almost certainly come into action, the rooster of firearms.

Thrillers sometimes work with the plot of an artificially staged drought - which threatens to become a weapon of mass destruction for the country and its people. Because every being needs its own quantum of H2O. The blue and reflection in this motif by photo artist Ralf Schellen create the impression of a large water surface. But could it be a hidden, underground reservoir? This contrasts with the orange over the water horizon and the brilliance of the knotted Maghreb necklace (which could hide more): Is the sun-hot tone a symbol of real drought, a desert or a mirage in the Sahara? The viewer can also interpret the spy girl's curved pose as an allusion to topographical formations. Thriller connoisseurs who are, as it were, well-versed in fiction will probably come up with potential fictional templates in a rapid flow of thought, which were important sources of inspiration for Ralf Schellen.

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.

Never expose unprotected prints to water. This destroys the surface.
