"Friends and a Passport / Four Wheels and a Pencil / Life's good"
Just came back from my second SF stay this year. It's always inspiring to be in the city, to meet my friends and gallerists and having a good time. These are some of the drawings I did while I was there this time...
This is a "quickly done" mural / installation I did recently.
Painted inside an abandoned hospital outside Berlin. Super fun!
A fun little show mainly on a body of work I did on Toronto a while back. Plus some recent pieces as well. Frankfurt, Main / Kombinatrotweiss.
This was a super fun project for and with kids. Task was to paint a mural and incorporate the neighborhood-kids. Mural plus stencil workshop. Everybody loved this. Awesomeness. Success. Kids smiles for miles.

Thanks to Gewobag / Berliner Leben and everybody who helped.
A big city is a polarizing place: for some a behemoth – dangerous, restless, crowded and noisy – for others an inspirational stronghold – full of art, culture, eccentric city folk, expats and tourists from all over the world.

Various target groups are addressed and motivated to engage themselves socially, through the universal languages of art, music and football.

I sent them my drawing files and here is an example of what I got... blown away by the quality - still. There are some more. Just come by to my studio for a coffee and a chat and take a look.
Colors Of My Home
‘Colors of my home‘ is dedicated to the people living in a multi culture housing complex in Berlin. Inhabitants and neighbors are dealing with the sometimes challenging aspects of understanding different customs all under one roof. This is not always easy as we all know. Not only but often mostly language barriers are what gets in the way of mutual understanding and is what breeds fear or misconceptions. However, there is always one language that we all understand: ART. Communication within and through images, objects and colors. With the strong and ongoing support of these artists: BLO / TANKPETROL / deerBLN / IDRAWALOT / VHILS / YOH NAGAO / AWK and PAOLA DELFIN …we are aiming to help offer the opportunity to encourage connection for those living in these houses and hope for more communication especially amongst the kids in the house. All artwork is based on the idea of cultural freedom, positive curiosity towards things that may appear ‘different‘ and lots and lots of laughs and fun!!!
