From February 16 to August 16, 2020, the Arp Museum in Rolandseck station showed the impressive exhibition "Sinn Frisst" by the artist Jonas Burgert. Especially for this exhibition, he created seven large-format works that lead into fictional worlds that immediately draw the viewer's accent of reality.

While researching, I found Mr.

Portugal and the ocean are part of it, and so maritime motifs in street art are found to fit even when they appear on ruins under high voltage power lines. The fish chosen here as the lead (unfortunately without a recognizable signature) belongs in this category and we were able to look at this beautiful picture just before a highway entrance near Aveiro.
