... and here is my top topic for the 8th week of 2024 artistically implemented. New every Sunday.

Students who “run amok” or kill themselves - such news is increasing (at least subjectively felt). There was another case last week in Wuppertal, about 50km away from me, where a possibly mentally ill student stabbed his classmates with a knife.

Such events tear me out of my “idyll” and show me how cruel and incomprehensible reality can be. This always makes me extremely sad. Hence the choice of motif and title:

What is actually beautiful (subject and surroundings appear soft due to a slight blur, suggested sunset in the background, beach landscape) is destroyed by the hard foreground (black, sharp, vertical lines). The protagonist sits in a puddle that resembles blood.

This picture is part of my weekly ARTblog on Instagram , in which I discuss current topics from the past week that are close to my heart. I do not claim to have the “ultimate, correct opinion” but rather just present my view in artistic form.

Image generation/creation using artificial intelligence according to my specifications. Further processing using Photoshop.

Unlimited edition.

Available as print or download.


a) Print on high-quality aluminum composite with magnetic suspension
(different sizes)
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.

b) Printed on high-quality fine art photo paper from Hahnemühle:
Baryta FB 350
21 cm x 21cm (including edge up to 5 mm)

Delivery is without frame - sample images are for illustrative purposes only

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.
