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 dropped me off 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!

Mail from Warren

First of all, thanks for the letter Warren!

Warren and I are exchanging our artwork. We met through Tumblr and our common interest in art.

Warren is not allowed to use Tumblr because he is in prison, nonetheless he managed to use Tumblr anyway and got in contact with me and I am so grateful for that.

His profile is now deleted so I guess they found his creative haven, sadly. I hope that he can get back some day soon and I hope to stay in contact with him. I also hope that he has received my work.

We decided that we should swap art and then make a collaboration, using each other’s work in a new way.

So in a few days I will show you what I have done to Warren’s sky mountains.

E - Container (Work in progress)

This 40 feet container is going to be my largest work so far. There is something special and exciting about going large. The fascination of creating huge monuments, buildings and art  is something that lies deep in all of us. We like to think that it gets better of more special if it is bigger.  

I am dreaming of making a big gable painting some day. I see a lot of surfaces that would be thrilling to embark on.

My face 9.9.14

 

artboydancing mailed me this work in progress picture a few weeks ago. It’s my face! Or it’s a copy of my face at least. You can really tell that It’s a imprint of me.

I’m so exited to see the final result of this 1:1 sculpture of me that Art Boy is doing.

He just mailed me today and asked if everything is okay with me or if anything happened to me because he is having troubles finding out how to go on with the peace it’s like that he can’t connect to it there’s something blocking.

So I’m okay but not like flying at all. I’m still searching for my meaning of life and that’s a very long journey sometimes it’s great but sometimes it’s also depressing. And in the moment I guess it’s a bit hard but then my mind falls on a thousands things that makes me very happy.

My girlfriend, my friends, my family, my home, my freedom to travel, free education, I’m good looking, you guys following me and you that I trade art with.
