open source 'n' networks

This is a collaboration with my favorite art partner Stefan Schwarzer. It was painted during the Fokus Festival 2011. I titled the work "open source 'n' networking". It is a message to the Fokus Festival and the whole audience. It is really important to share ideas, developments and at least contacts - without thinking about any profits. Profit is something which generates by it s own. That s what i think .

LOKO11 - Heerlen

After holding a succesfull pecha kucha presentation about "muralismo morte" at Pecha Kucha Maastricht , I'm invited to present "Lak Aan Braak" at LOKO11 in Heerlen. LOKO11 is "the national convention of commissioned art professionals of netherlands". It takes place at the Royal Theater in Heerlen. We will offer a guided tour.

The Invited Vandal

Last saturday I had a great performance.
For " the invited vandal" nobody was allowed to enter the gallery space. All visitors had to wait outside. Free coffee from a thermos flask was offered to the visitors. The visitors had to wait for me, like painters wait for painted trains in the station.
From time to time I entered the gallery space to make some paintings on the walls. The rest of the time i stayed in the office of the gallery. Stefan Schwarzer took some action photos. During the Performance i even got a call by a reporter. He asked me if i could come outside to make some more lines on the wall, just for a press picture ...
The paintings are visible 24 hours from outside - like street art . nobody needs to enter the show. On 31st of march we will present the catalogue of the show.
Thanx to all visitors ... i had a perfect opening of this show !!!
