Christmas as usual / Business as usual

I'm sorry but this post is kind of advertisment for buying nice things to give them away at christmas eve to friends and peple that you like. And because Artists need to survive from selling stuff, not only by teaching at schools and universities, stealing old food from the garbage can ( called dumpster diving ) and air from latin america ( i love it, even it's dirty) - i want to give some advise about places where you can buy some prints and works of mine.

this is one example - "Left traces in Namur" is a limited screen print for the show "Conceptual Vandalism" available in Dresden at Galerie Module or via e-mail. Price: 42€ (unframed) 70€ (framed with passepartout)

in Dresden - galerie module sells prints, original drawings (framed and ready to take away) anf the new Conceptual Vandalism shirts

in Berlin - idrawalot sells prints of mine - not framed but ready to take away ;)

all over the world - via e-mail

- in some stores in Dresden (Büchers Best, Chamäleon,Supreme ) you can even find some of my recent designed shirts for conceptual vandalism show or publications like "muralismo morte". You can buy stuff as well at the conceptual vandalism show during events like the videoscreeing of spraymasters and the lecture of the spanish artist and teacher Javier Abarca

Geometric Playground

Geometric Playground is an experimental mix up drawing by using geometrical forms and some items of my sketched repertoire. I used an public holiday to paint and make a bbq with friends in a nice abandoned area. Unfortunatly lots of geocachers thought this day is perfect to find some caches in this abandoned area.More pictures of this work you can find on my photostream.

Countryside Rhythm

Small mural (2,5m to 2m) in countryside of northern Saxony at Stroga-Festival. Stroga is in the north os Großenhain. An area muche influenced by agriculture. But at the same time Großenhain had one of the biggest air bases of eastern germany since the 1930's. After the changes they had the crazy plan to change this air base into an transport airport. They thought Dresden airport will be to small.Then the airport of Dresden expanded. Till today the Dresden Airport has much capacity and Großenhain Airport is just an empty field for rabbits and foxes. In the furture the agriculture will still dominate the area - and Festivals like Storga as well. Thanx Abu ( waterlounge crew ) for the Invitation and the nice time over there. ps: to go to Stroga Festival area you just need to take the train from Dresden - and within 50 minutes you are there. Don't forget to take your bike. there are 2 km of a ride from the Station of Zabeltitz to Stroga on a quite countryside road.

Short Traveldiary

painting the "veetunnel"- This is prime painting in a tunnel formely used for cows. It's a beautiful spot in the countryside of netherlands. Total opposite atmosphere from my recent works in Cities like Santiago de Chile, Sofia or Dresden. Sometimes people pass by with dogs or kids and we have a relaxed smalltalk. a bigger flick here ps : I still look for a place, where i should leave a work just with these abstract forms.
Snake Train Collaboration - This is a smooth wall in chic bar in sofia. Valeri Gyurov invited us ( Shunzan & me ) to paint there. It was a nice job. Relaxed, tasty food and finally good music -from Valeri's mp3 palyer . bigger picture here
Mezdra 2011 (Cyanotype Drawing) - Last year Bozhidar Asenov took some pictures on a trip with friends. He finally developed some photos in cyanotypes. I made drawings over some of them. This on is called "Mezdra 2011" - Mezdra is a town in the north of Sofia, where we passed by on our trip - bigger picture here. Some comparable works you can find till 31st of May at the show nightshift in Sofia .

New Work in Dresden-Neustadt area - "Konfusion& Träume" is a work inspired by contemporary life in Neustadt area and Alfred Kubins book "Die andere Seite".

This is just a step in between, but i'm looking for a place, where i could leave such a abstract painting. In Dresden-Neustadt it will be covered with tags in a few days. That's why i prefered the outlined version.

Portrait " czech train painter 1"

Continuing a series of drawings on tickets called "just another nightshift".
This is one of two portraits of a czech artist . He is a a close friend, but has always struggle for life. He lives in a small workers town, where nobody thinks a lot about art or escpaing from the workers life. It's a place where it's really difficult to escape especially when you don't have opportunities to study. You are trapped in everyday work. His last resorts from the boring everday life are drugs ( beer and canabis), music and painting crazy stuff in his town.

"Träumer" - first sketch for the exhibition "Die andere Seite" in Dresden

"Träumer" is my first sketch for the exhibition "Die andere Seite" in Dresden. It' s an exchange project with the german artist Viktoria Graf and two artists from Litomerice - the town where Alfred Kubin was born. Alfred Kubin is the author of the -Book " Die andere Seite". It's an dark novel about the city of dreamers , which looks much more like a nightmare to the chief character of the book.

For the show we print a series of screenprints - inspired by the book and the exchange of ideas between czech artists and german.

Porto Alegre - inside works

"work'n'travel" was my last work in Porto Alegre this year. I did this one at the place of my hosts - Elisa and Felipe. Thanx a lot for the nice place and all the contacts in Porto Alegre. Hope to see them again ... next year. The painting features inspirations of the couple's life and some impressions from my trip.

I did not find a title for this work. It's nearly 270 degrees. I choosed that corner in Daniel's flat, because the painting can go up to the ceiling and again down to the wall. It reminds me on painting in empty buildings in Dresden. I used to paint a lot in abandoned flats. There you always found different strange conditions. Flats full of trash, or just empty. Sometimes a homeless sleeping place. It was always inspiring. Thanx a lot Daniel - for the opportunity to paint, the good food, the book ...

( and the helpfull payment )

Latin America Tour 2012 - Chile

Since I´m in Chile i just painted. 3 Walls in Valparaiso are finished. And th 4th at "museo a cielo abierto san miguel" is finished tomorrow.
The museo is organized by an art association based in San Miguel/Santiago de Chile. It s kind of a grassroots Organisation which exists in San Miguel for several years. The "museo" is curted by the artist mono gonzalez. Mono is a well know muralist at the age of 65 - and active for lot of years. One of his most famous works is in a metrostation in Santiago.

The Mural i participate in is a group work of 3 artists - Godi from Brazil , Mr Rik from Germany and I.It´s kind of crazy to paint all day long ... and i think i need a break at a beautifull beach.

one of 3 collaborations in Valparaiso - more pictures of works in Valpo here
