GRAFFITI AT FRANKFURT'S OSTENDSTRAßE METRO SATION

For six weeks, artists Case Maclaim and Does teamed up paint the complete inside of Frankfort's Ostendstraße metro station. Case and Does chose green as the base colour for the tunnels – not only because green looks fresh, but the color green also stands for growth, renewal and energy, plus it is traditionally associated with finances and banking. Quite appropriate seeing that Ostendstraße metro station is located near European Central Bank (ECB), right in the heart of Frankfurt’s financial district. When the green base coat was applied, Case and Does started applying their designs and after another 2 pallets of paint and 6 weeks of hard work. the tunnels were completely dipped in color. Where Ostendstraße was never considered a safe place to wait for the train, Ostendstraße is now a ‘must-see’ if you ever visit Germany.
