Thomas Baumgärtel: Ohne Spargel ist alles Banane,
Grenzhöfer Straße , 68723Schwetzingen
To celebrate the anniversary “350 Years of Asparagus Growing in Schwetzingen”, Thomas Baumgärtel was commissioned to design the facade of a municipal building. With his mural “Without asparagus everything’s bananas!” he has put his artistic finger on the importance of Schwetzingen as an asparagus metropolis. Parts of the banana-yellow asparagus tip have been made up from any number of his signature spray bananas – a stylistic approach he terms “banana pointillism”. Baumgärtel’s mural intrinsically defines itself as a further development of his “fruit pictures”.
