I Scanned and photographed my recent artwork and i noticed that i am currently doing a wild mix of drawings, paintings, and digital art. Enjoy friends: Die Auflösung I-IV, Map of the British Isles, All Eyes on me, Fabelhaft, Concrete, Rohrschach, Kritzelbilder I-IX. Fratze, Wasserlinie, Flamingos Origins, Tribal.
My art teacher Zjelko is currently doing a new portait drawing class so i joined and was amazed how much geometry is involved in drawing a precise face. Circles, Lines, Squares, and proportions. I think i will need to draw more again so it is a good start.
I uploaded a lot of my recent work and all stuff from the exhibition to the homepage. As i was doing also drawings and prints in a recent VHS course my portfolio is getting more diverse. I tried new techniques and combined a lot of contrasting things like tusche and acrylics, drawing and painting, or simply putting things together in a new way. Hope you like them, my second exhibition will start soon, i am very excited.
My second exhibition Gegens�tze / Opposites with the "Studiengang Bildende Kunst" is coming in July 2015 - April 2016. The vernissage will be at 13th of July at the Volkshochschule Ost (Ostendstr. 110) in Stuttggart. Together with Anja Mauch, Brigitte M�ller, Christiane Bode, and Stephan Kambor-Wiesenberg I will show stuff that resulted from our course. We made paintings, drawings, and prints by applying various opposites.
In the second part of our Studiengang Bildende Kunst - a year long course at the Volkshochschule Stuttgart - we are focussing on drawings with all kinds of materials and pencils, pens, ink, paint, graphite, and more. I will upload more pictures of the course to the "art" section soon.
A very creative year is coming to an end. Instead of watching those stupid "Jahresr�cklick" tv shows, I took some time to photograph and digitalize most paintings I did this year and uploaded it to my page: reflections, funkeln, betonw�ste, coffee universe, paradiesvogel, antilope. Merry X-Mas and a happy new year everybody.
After auctioning two of my paintings for charity last year i now have first real exhibition inside the halls of SAP. For the next two months, I am showing 17 paintings in a large coffee corner in Walldorf. I was quite astonished when we were finished hanging the paintings, because i never saw so many of them next to each other. Quite impressive!
I've been drawing a lot lately and I have a lot of stuff that is ready to go to a larger canvas. Pencil sketches are nice, but these graphmarker pens are really awesome, not only for drawing comics but also for drafting stuff with really bright colors.
Added some new acrylic paintings from later this year, mostly abstract: schaumermal, space night, reflexe, martini mit olive, die anderen, this way! Have a great winter.
