SEAK representing Cologne/germany

I combined the letters of my artist name “Seak” with the my birth and hometown “Köln” (cologne).

Using the offical colours of cologne (red and white and a bit of blackand orange) aswell a few local visuall traditions and heritage like the 11 blacks flames represent the 11 virgins which rescued cologne in very early medieval times from the huns, the three crowns, the top parts of the “Kölner Dom” (cathedral), etc, etc, etc…

The fact that ive painted the bar waggon makes perfectly sense with the party, carnival and highlife image cologne has in the world.
