ruhrgebiet

An homage to the Ruhr Area. Artworks that reflect on it or show parts of it.

The Ruhrgebiet / Ruhr area is in the north west of Germany. With a population density of 2,800/km² and a population of eight and a half million, it is the largest urban agglomeration in German -> Wikipedia

I lived in Essen for nearly 10 years. During that time I developed new skills in art, especially silk screening, and also created this series.
