KM-ON-E

I started this triptych about two years ago but only finished it last week, two days before winter solstice. The background is done in cyan, magenta and yellow. The black and white stencil layers above consist of the five elements of my name K-E-N-M-O, so it took 20 steps on each of the three parts to get completed.
KM (which I used as short for Kenmo in the past) stands for 'Kosmic Man' ('Kosmischer Mensch' in german). ON stands for the opposite of off, meaning 'awake, alive, vibrating' and E stands for the energy, excitement and ecstacy - not in a sense of escapism to flee the troubles of the world, but rather 'enrealment', meaning the natural state of a free human being.
The size is 1m x 40cm each, 1,20m x 1m complete. Spraypaint on canvas.

A Shift in the Direction 1997-1998

As one can imagine from reading my former posts about my history, these birth- and death-experiences led to a shift in the direction of my life. And as there has been a shift in the direction of my life, there has been a shift in my artistical expression also. My works started to point more and more inwards and became more influenced by geometrical, fractal patterns or organical ones on the other hand.
Here you can see my first kaleidoscope-like works emerging out of the letter K, which later led me to my logo which I still use and I´m still working with these geometrical-fractal patterns that I created out of the essence of my graffiti styles.

Hall of Fame – rest in pieces!

Vor kurzem wurde unsere Hall of Fame in der Bremer Überseestadt abgerissen. Schade drum! Es waren zwei schöne Jahre.

Recently our "Hall of Fame" in the harbour of Bremen got demolished. What a pity! It have been two nice years.

Aller Ort

Zur Zeit findet noch bis zum 16. Juli das Festival "Aller Ort" auf einer Brache in Hemelingen statt. Organisiert von der ZwischenZeitZentrale und der Schule 21 sind dort das Alsomirschmeckt´s-Theater, Marnic Circus, Joachim "Bommel" Fischer und andere mit ihren Werken und Ideen vertreten.
Ich wollte dort ursprünglich gestern an einem Impro-Theater-Workshop teilnehmen, war aber der einzige Gast und habe dann nach einem Gespräch mit den Leuten vor Ort eine Leinwand zu malen angeboten bekommen - und dann diese improvisiert...
