New graffito by Baumgärtel in Sulzburg
Thomas Baumgärtel, also known as "the banana sprayer", sprayed a peace banana in the French national colors in Sulzburg, not far from the French border. He created his "peace banana" as a metamorphosis of his spray banana over 20 years ago, however, only in the classic colors yellow and black. In January he had reacted to the terrorist attacks at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo with a new metamophosis. The new peace banana is his latest reaction to terrorist attacks on freedom.
