This was posted on a power-station hut near the Südpark in Düsseldorf. Anyone know who it is? I have a feeling I should know, but alas, I don't.

He looks like Charles Bukowski to me.

I didn't know either, but a quick picture search using tineye.com yielded: "Charles Bukowski". There you go...

I have terrible facial recognition, often taking months to learn to tell certain cow orkers apart, but that looks like poet Charles Bukowski to me. He was born in Andernach, not too far up the river from Düsseldorf.
I enjoy his poems and novels, but feel oddly uneasy after, like my enjoyment somehow retro-actively enables a destructive lifestyle. Bukowski died for my sins of mediocrity.

That's Charles Bukowski if I'm not hugely mistaken.
