The Survivors

Welcome to the opening of The Survivors art exhibition on Friday 15th of April at 16.30 at the Atrium The Hague City Hall (Spui 70, The Hague), where my latest painting ‘Tumbleweed’ is exposed.
During the opening I’ll be performing the Live Drawing together with the Syrian music band. The performance starts at 17.15.
The Survivors art exhibition, organised by The Hague Peace Projects, will challenge and confront a large and varied public to consider the daily reality of the lives of Syrian refugees. 16 artists get the assignment to react on the drawings of a Syrian boy of 11 years old, Taim Safar, by making their own, new work. It shows that something as simple as a drawing of a child can lead to such a unique and innovative art project.

Please, support the crowdfunding campaign of this project (till April 6).

Place: Atrium City Hall, Spui 70, The Hague
Opening: April 15, 16:30
End: May 4

Colourful Identities performance

In April 2015 Colourful Identities were performed three times in Berlin and was followed by exhibitions of my paintings. In the performance Colourful Identities both art forms meet: the music of songwriter and composer Suzy Bartelt and my live visuals (analog and digital animated drawings).
Music is colour, colour is music: loud red, tender blue, hissing orange, sparkling melodies, round or sharp sounds. The energy of colour affects us more intensely than we consciously realise. In music “rhythms and sounds touch our souls at the deepest and shake it most powerfully” (Plato). Is it possible to use different colours and shapes, to let different facets and identities of an ego stand side by side? When am I “myself”? Is it okay to show many different “I’s“? What is the effect on outsiders when I show different “I’s” in my social interaction?
First time we performed in “Loophole” (Berlin Neukölln) and the performance was accompanied only by digital animated drawings.
For the second performance in “Hannes Café” (Berlin Gatow) I made only real drawings: one drawing for each song.
The final performance was at Oranienwerk (Oranienburg, near Berlin) and I create both analog and digital visuals as for Sonnige Silberne Freiheit .
Here is a Colourful Identities trailer where you can see three songs of ten in total.
