Description

Big Poster Gleimtunnel

The Poster Gleimtunnel Berlin is panoramic (56 x 20 cm / 22 x 7,87 inches) and represents the intersection of the roads”Gleimstrasse” and “Schwedter Strasse”.
I drew this urban sketch on the 11th of April 2018 directly at the location in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg: map

As a technique I applied wash drawing (ink + water). And as artistic tools I used for the Poster Gleimtunnel Berlin:

  • a little black panoramic sketchbook that I began in 2010 (Format 43 x 14,5 cm – 17″ x 6″-, ca. 120 g/m2 – 410 lb.in2-)
  • a calligraphic pen (“Pilot Parallel Pen”- 2.4 mm)
  • fineliner Staedtler® (0,05 and 0,1)
  • 2 paint brushes (fine and medium)
  • dry pastels

I was sitting on the pavement in front of this crossroad, back to the Mauerpark.
In the Gleimtunnel was a check point of the Berlin Wall. Now it’s the “Berliner Mauerweg”.

🌸 These cherrytrees (symbol of Peace in Japan🎐) are although planted after the cold war on the border of the Berlin Wall 🕊️.
 

This illustration is also on my portfolio Urban Sketches.
