Kreuzberg, Berlin: My Creative Haven

Welcome to Kreuzberg, the vibrant district of Berlin that I have called home for more than four decades. As an artist, writer, and web designer, I immerse myself in the area's cultural richness, capturing its essence through my art. Occasionally, I also tend to the streets by sowing and planting flowers, adding life and color to our urban landscape. Join me in discovering the spirit of Kreuzberg through my unique perspective.

Reflections on Life and Beauty Contrasts and Harmony in Kreuzberg

Me at Mariannenplatz; every summer, I find solace on this stone, embracing the wind and sun's infinite dance. Kreuzberg's so-called normalcy.

Full Moon Kreuzberg, photo by Wiesław Sadurski

Full moon over Kreuzberg, viewed through glass with a hole. Is that why the roundness of the moon tends to drop shape? Maybe it will turn into a bright tear to remind me that that life is not simple.

Penis & Church. Three girls built this structure; metal rod scaffolding, transparent foil stretched over. Amidst vibrant flowers, it contrasts with St. Thomas Kirche's towers.
