 photo 2016_04_Kera_Sokaruno_Berlin_c_zpsuck7p8ef.jpg

Mural painted in Tempelhof, Berlin.
Collaboration with my friends Kera and Sokaruno

The historic airport of Tempelhof in Berlin, closed on 2008 to the passengers after about 80 years in service and reopened as a recreational park in 2015. Now it is slated to become one of the biggest refugee camps in Europe. Already the former aircraft hangers are occupied by a few thousand refugees, mostly from Syria. By the end of the year the former airport grounds are expected to house nearly 7000.

"Happiness: a dream's game"
Acrylic on linnen canvas, 135 x 95 cm

We embark upon a trip of happiness in a pirate paper boat, on an indefinite journey where birds symbolize the freedom of our mind , flowers are the sprouting of our soul and universes are drawn within the harmony of our senses and inner colours"

BALIDIVERSITY / PAINTING

 photo unnamed_zpsh64o7lgv.jpg

Last November i was hosted by East Editions in Bali where i was working with them in a new limited series of abstract paintings inspired on my days in the island.

Now i am excited to announce that this paintings are release with East Editions, more info at www.easteditions.com

 photo unnamed1_zpso9fhyjd5.jpg

First I designed 3 geometric shaped mounted plywood panels and then custom made in Kerobokan, Bali, Indonesia.

When I landed in Bali, I spent the first few days exploring the island, nature places, visiting temples, learning a little bit about the balinese culture and fascinated with the colors of the island and the rituals.

Then after feeling super inspired from my experiences and surroundings, I spent three days in East Editions studio in Canggu, painting the panels using a combination of acrylic paints and collaged rattan, a local resource in Bali that has many practical applications.

My time in the studio resulted in three unique abstract colorful paintings.

Titled "Balidiversity", these pieces were inspired by the Balinese landscape, people, customs and cultures, as well as the lush tropical surroundings, native plants and coastal location. These artworks are a true reflection of my time in Bali and an extension on my ongoing abstract body of artwork.

There are only three original works available in the series, each piece is signed and numbered on the side and back.

Now available to order online (Shipping worldwide) with FREE shipping within Australia and Indonesia.
