Descrizione Opera / Biografia

Endless Artexistence
Even to be an artist is to exist and maybe existence after death. My point of view towards art
is like Joseph Beuys´s thoughts. I am a living sculpture in non-stop performance. Frankly, my
genre is visual artist. My the strongest field is to paint pictures and to make installations. The
main point for paintings are usually to contains some mystical emotion and expressive atmosphere.
In my large collage paintings I use colours by accident - where ever mud and colours will
splash. Mainly I use all kind of recykling material: part of old clothes, litle articles, old fur caps,
melt wax, sand, cement, salt, dry flowers... My paint incident can takes all my time. I work very
intensive and dedication way with very loud music all day long for weeks or nothing at all. It is
good to have a rest of lonely and mental tumult artwork period. Sometimes it is also good to
question of what is necessary to make artwork and even put on display for an audience. In my
opinion to be an artist is mainly must have a vision. I do not only mean an aesthetic dimension but
especially activity of spirits. It is the same spirit level where dreams, myths and religions or unknown
have the first existence. The dark element and energy of space science gives me wide thoughts
about an artexistence. This is my challenge to be living sculpture in the public happening.
