The colorful stairway shown above is located in Wuppertal, Germany and it is the work of the artist Horst Gläsker.
After painting all the 112 stairs with a different colour, Gläsker wrote on each stair a word which expresses a human emotional condition. Words such as: sorrow, joy, anxiety, hatred, expectation, hope, despair, aspiration, panic, love, passion, admiration, attraction, fear.
Gläsker’s creation has a diverse interest, as it combines colours and emotions in a three-dimensional palette. It is an exceptional example which shows how the right amount of colour can drastically improve the gloomy image of urban scenery.
