Art fairs Berlin

I m in Berlin to present my Book at Stroke - Friday 8.10. - 7 p.m. and Saturday 9.10. - 7 p.m. in the lounge area - entrance to the lecture is free !

Because i had some time to look out what s goin on in Berlin I made a tour to art forum berlin. It s a huge huge art fair. I painted some stuff in front of it, because entrance fee was to high and I don t relly like these kind of places, where Security is on every corner, looking at you.
I invited a child of parents to paint, too. he looked really interested.
We painted only few minutes till security arrived. The security guy was really friendly. That's whay I did not continue. I m not a nasty bad boy, if security sees my face ;)
Luckily a man of the audience gave me some pocket money ...
Nice start for that day...

After being at art forum I went back to stroke . On my way i found a street sketch of my friend other .
I had to add something !
I made some kind of a triptych out of it ... hope to meet him again ( not only in the streets )

Muralismo Morte - Book release

My First BOOK is launched soon !!!

Text by From Here To Fame Publishing:

We are delighted to commence our fall season with a beautiful new title.

Wir freuen uns sehr mit diesem außergewöhnlich schönen Buch in den Herbst zu starten.

Muralismo Morte - The Rebirth of Muralism in Contemporary Urban Art reveals the vibrancy of a new type of muralism as it rises from the shadows of urban spaces in metropolises worldwide. From much celebrated pieces in prominent places to those hidden in anonymous, decayed ruins, it features the large-scale murals and small interventions of some of the most exciting international artists associated with this movement. Muralist and art activist Jens Besser uncovers these treasures and offers special insights into the emerging scene that is coloring our urban experience.

Texts by Robert Kaltenhäuser, Peter Michalski, Michael Haas (Facadeprinter), Markus Dorninger (Tagtool),Thilo Fröbel, Resto, Tec, Jens Besser and Kain Logos

Artists/Künstler: Roa, Remed, Klub 7, Aec & Waone (Interesni Kazki), Blu, Os Gemeos, Escif, Iemza, Tagtool, Sonice Development, 108, Resto, Aris, Kislow , Eleuro , Sepe, Kenor and many more.

Muralismo Morte - The Rebirth of Muralism in Contemporary Urban Art, zeigt die Dynamik einer neuen Form der Wandmalerei, die seit einigen Jahren weltweit aus den Schatten der urbanen Räume der Metropolen hervor tritt. Von den gefeierten Arbeiten an prominenten Plätzen zu den anonymen Werken, versteckt in verfallenen Ruinen, bietet dieses Buch die großen Murals und kleinen Interventionen einiger der spannendsten internationalen Künstler dieser Bewegung. Muralist und Kunst-Aktivist Jens Besser deckt diese Kostbarkeiten auf und bietet einen tiefen Einblick in eine aufstrebende Szene, die unsere urbane Landschaft in neuen Farben zeichnet.

etwas in eigener (deutscher) sache

wer sich mal wundert, wieso er nicht ausreisen darf, weil gerade fussball em ist:
möglicherweise ist er zufällig in der " gewaltäter-datei" der polizei gelandet, weil er mal beim fussballspiel einen hooligan anzeigen wollte. und damit du weisst das du demnächst den netten jungs von nebenan beim abendlichen chillen in der Neustadt erzählen darfst/musst:

sonstige Namen wie Spitznamen
andere Namensschreibweisen
andere Personalien wie Alias-Personalien
akademischer Grad
erlernter Beruf
ausgeübte Tätigkeit
Geburtsort einschließlich Kreis
aktuelle Staatsangehörigkeit und frühere Staatsangehörigkeiten

Personenbeschreibungen wie
a) Gestalt
b) Größe unter Angabe der Art ihrer Feststellung
c) Gewicht

na danke und tschüss ... also lieber gleich rennen, egal was los ist. UND nicht umdrehen - da heisst es sonst " der täter wollte sich gewaltsam entfernen. Der täter zog waffe und drehte sich um. Der Täter wurde mit waffenanwendung im fluchtvorgang gestoppt. sterbedatum = aufzeichnungsdatum"

ps - alles schon passiert - letzteres einem ausländer in nürnberg, der keine waffe besaß. bußgeld für die verrückte polizistin - 5000€ . genausoviel wie für eine besprühte wand eines kumpels. nur dass die wand noch existiert. der abgeknallte typ nicht.
