A Deutsche Bahn project on the theme of "façade art"


Here you can see the results of a very special action by Deutsche Bahn, completely detached from the Muralu project.

It is almost inconceivable how desolate underground corridors can be transformed into an art mile! It is also almost inconceivable what works of art have been created here. You stand in front of it and ask yourself: how can something like this be done "simply" with spray? What technique is behind it, which artists are capable of something like that?

Sometimes I show excerpts to make clear how incredibly detailed the work has to be in order to make a desired effect appear that way from the viewer's perspective when he or she looks at the whole work from a distance.

Great respect to all these artists, and many thanks to Deutsche Bahn for giving us these art walks!

An article by Manuel Gerullis, founder of the artist collective Buntic-Media

Initiated by Deutsche Bahn, Buntic-Media and a collective of 24 artists from the region and half of Europe completely redesigned the spacious subway complex at Ludwigshafen main station in September and October 2020. 

Under the motto "Meeting of Styles", the artists transformed numerous drab and monotonous surfaces into a lively graffiti gallery using the power of colour. The graffiti festival of the same name, "MOS" for short, which has been taking place worldwide since 2002 and is considered the largest festival of its kind in the world, has been organised by Buntic-Media for many years and enjoys a worldwide reputation. So it was obvious to organise a mini-meeting as part of the Meeting of Styles series and thus enliven the station.

Says Manuell Gerullis: "The power of motifs and colours is able to bring quality of life and atmosphere to an urban space that is predominantly characterised by monotony and monotony. The design of the station subway was therefore a very appealing project for us. Because here, with the graffiti art, we were able to transform a sterile, lifeless subway, through which people previously hurried, into a lively, colourful open-air gallery that invites people to linger and look at the pictures."

The individual works

It was not easy to assign these works to the artists mentioned above: The signatures often led nowhere, or I found none at all with the paintings.

Works that are still unknown can be found at the end of this page, under "Info wanted".


Cayn: Borja Sanchez. Expressive pair of eyes

The Spanish artist with the common name Borja Sanchez (38) worked for two days on this mural, completely applied with a can. Cayn currently lives and works in Berlin, but he is a busy and curious man who rarely stays in one place for more than two years, he says: "My life is painting and travelling!" And it all began in his teenage years in Barcelona, where he first smeared letters sprayed...


C. Saso

Bisherige Infos:




Cold Winter in volcanic landscape
Gaston Jannsen (23) aka ENOF was born in Beijing (China), has a Dutch passport and lives in Belgium. In his two-day work, the artist has used different styles in addition to cool and warm colours; the strong red provides an additional contrast. In addition, his penchant for oil painting has been incorporated into this mural.

Esobe BC

Peter Baczynski (35) was born in Poland and became addicted to graffiti as a teenager. After a period of living in England, it led him to the Netherlands, from where he has also been drawn more often to neighbouring countries, for example, to also carry out commissioned work for private individuals who like to have it unusual and colourful around their four walls. He had also gladly and fervently upgraded other bare facades. His very special thanks go to Manuel Gerullis, who had invited him to this sprayer meeting in Ludwigshafen. This work is completely freehand, ESOBE emphasises. And: It took longer than planned because it was tremendous fun to chat with the other colleagues...



Manuel Gerullis (49) from Wiesbaden (Germany) is the founder of the art collective Buntic Media and founded the Meeting of Styles Festival in 2002, which is now one of the most important events in the scene. As a teenager, he began with illegal spray actions on trains or other surfaces; today he sprays around the globe and gets paid for it. His credo: I want to directly shape my environment, enrich it with my images.
