  2. Ho tivoli and flea market 28-31.8.14

     

    For the first time I’m visiting this yearly event in Ho, Denmark together with Tabita Henriksen and Søren Bosch.

    We decided to group up and go somewhere fare away in distance but also in mentality(Maybe).

    We brought alot of our art and materials so we could create new works during the weekend. The prices on our paintings and sculptures is set to fit the market prices. So they are very cheap this weekend in Ho.

    It’s been great fun so far and we have met all kind of special/different yet sweet people.

    I’ll follow up with pictures and experiences from day 2 and 3.

  5. Skull jacket 26.8.14

     

    Søren wanted me to draw something on his leather jacket and I decided to do a human skull

    Skulls are so popular in the art scene and I can easily understand why.

    Do you like skulls in art?

  6. Stephan and friends 18.8.14

     

    Stephan aka artboydancing and I met on tumblr a few weeks ago and we decided to do a art trade.

    He said that I could stay at his place a couple of days if I planned to go to Berlin at some point so I made a sign that said BERLIN and went down to the nearest highway. The sign took me to Berlin in less than 24 hours.

    Stephan and his boyfriend Jörn opened their home for me with a lot of love and friendlyness. They made me good vegan food and delicious homemade juices.

    I slept in the living room but it felt more like a temple or a meditation room. Surrounded by Stephans paintings and “Babies” (which are the small instalations with babyfaces) I felt safe and sound.

    Stephan and I both like to go into deep conversations about the meaning of life and family issues so we spend a lot of time on that and Stephan is full of interesting and meaningful perspectives and stories about life. Stephans spirit is like a kid and it made me very relaxed

    I also met two of Stephans friends and colleagues Fritz and Daniel who you can see in the bottom picture. I gave them a painting each because they are so sweet and welcoming.

    Stephan and I traded works and he gave me the big universe painting that I’m holding in the picture and I gave him the small E-Painting and a Scanner E-Painting.

    Love and good karma goes to Stephan and all his friends and family!

  7. Artboydancing’s place 18.8.14

     

    Stephan asked me if he could impliment my face and body imprint in a human size instalation. Which I of course accepted right away.

    I’m looking forward to see how the sculpture is going to look like.

  8. I’m a big fan of Vivl 17.8.14

     

    Last month I mailed a box containing my art to a nother artist the danish musician Vivl.

    His music makes me feel so calm and happy. Sometimes tears run from my eyes when I sit back and enjoy the fantastic sounds that really fills me with ecstasy in a way that no other art ever did to me. My experience can be compared to a sneeze or an orgasm. It may sound corny but it’s the truth and it’s lovely.

    I wanted to give Vivl something in return so I gave him a peace of my art. The importent thing for me is to show my gratitude and respect to a very giving person.

    He sent me 3 cd’s in return. Thank you so much again Vivl!

  9. I’m in Berlin 8.8.14

     

    I got to Berlin by hitchhiking this wedsnesday and I can’t complaine about anything. It’s been a fantastic trip down here.

    I had six rides and my fifth ride a man in his forties took me from a gazstation where I stayed for the night and to Hamburg. He sat me of where I could go by train to a good hitchhiking point. This very friendly guy even insisted to give me money for the train ticket so I of course accepted this kind offer.

    When buying the ticket this homless romanian guy begged me for money and I gave him the rest that I had in cash wich was like not much but he gave me a big hug and told me where to go to find my train. Fantastic. Another older guy walked me from the train stop and right to the hitchhiking point. All this friendliness.

    My last ride took me all the way from Hamburg to Berlin and we had a long talk about art, humanity and other great issues. He told me about the Viennese Actionism wich is very interesting and crazy. I gave Martin a peace of art in return of his kindness and his interest in art.

    The first night in Berlin I couch surfed at a cool girls place. She took very good care of her first couch surfer and so did her cats. She also got one of my paintings for her friendliness and hospitality.

    Now I’m at artboydancing ‘s place but I’ll wait to tell you about that because this needs it’s own post!

    I hope that you guys aswell meet sweet and openminded people out there. If that’s not the case then I believe that if you are such a person you self you will automatically run into other great and warm people. Cause it’s how you picture the wold that It’s all about!
