23.04.2010 SPRINGMANN.VAROL Gallery opening:


One of my favourite artist will be in my town this friday ! His works are breathtaking. I got to meet and talk to him a few months ago, when he was in Germany and the stories this guy has to tell are just unbelievable, amazing, frightening, funny, thought-provoking...beautiful and so real. 

He captures all of those stories in his pictures, somehow to me it's like this pictures can talk. He's gonna show his exhibition WOMEN ARE HEROES for the first in Germany at the Springmann.Varol Gallery opening in Düsseldorf this Friday. Come by and say yay !



Freiburg gallery owner Henrik Springmann and entrepreneur/art collector Selim Varol 
have joined to form the Gallery Springmann.Varol. Henrik Springmann has previously focused on 
contemporary art and classical modernism, while Selim Varol contributes his extensive collection from  
and connections to the contemporary and urban art world. The concept behind Gallery Springmann.Varol’s new Duesseldorf location, 
Muehlengasse 3, will be contemporary art, with a focus on the works of international emerging artists, who are being presented in Germany for the first time.



The French photographer, activist, and artist JR, born in 1983, ranks amongst the world’s leading artists of his genre. 
Starting on April 23, WOMEN ARE HEROES will be the first exhibition of JR’s works in Germany at the newly opened 
Gallery Springmann.Varol. 
WOMEN ARE HEROES is JR’s third project in the series 28 MILLIMÈTRES, after PORTRAIT OF A GENERATION and 
FACE 2 FACE. As was the case in his other works, WOMEN ARE HEROES also supports the causes of peace and humanitarianism. 
JR’s project pays tribute to the scores of women who are dealing with the effects of war, poverty, violence, and oppression on a daily basis. 
He meets them in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Phnom Penh, Delhi, and Kibera/Kenya and with his camera, he captures 
their faces in moments of emotion. JR’s works document the personal histories of the people he photographs and his works in interior spaces – photographs and collages on various media – are already well-established and respected throughout the international contemporary art world.


The artist will be present for the opening of the exhibition on Friday, April 19, 2010 at 7 o’clock p.m.

The exhibition 
will be open for viewing until May 30, 2010 on Mo – Fr, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and by 
arrangement with the Gallery Springmann.Varol.

There's no reality except the one contained within us.

Herman Hesse is such a badass.I am reading this book at the moment,"Demian" . There is so much simple truth in it, that I keep marking pages and lines.I am not even half through it and the book already looks like a crazy coloured mess. Anyway, what I want to say keeps me thinking. The following lines have been on my mind since I read them. I think in times where the influence of social networks like facebook and twitter on our everyday life is getting stronger ,we tend to lose the focus of whats real and what is not. I mean real like, true to yourself to your own opinion,to the things that YOU love and think. It's so easy to lose your focus between the tweets and listen to the voice of the "scene" instead to ones own.Tell me about it.


There is no reality except the one contained within us. That's why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself."

Hermann Hesse


Everything in life is art.What you do and how you do it. The way you love someone and how you dress. How you talk, your personality and your SMILE.What you believe in and ALL YOUR DREAMS.The way you drink your coffee and how you decorate your home.Your to do lists,the food you eat.How you party and how your writing looks.The way you wear your hair,the playlists you make and what you call them.And the way you feel.

Life is art.

There is no need, to be someone else, to play a role or to try to be something or someone different from who you are. You are your own piece of art and there is no one but you to decide how it should look. You don't even need to check how other pictures look, cause yours is just right the way you like have to find out what YOU like and what YOU want, maybe that's the most difficult part of it all. You can be whatever you wanna be, when you are true and honest to yourself.It's all within you, you just need to find it.

The uncomfortable truth

I just realised that I've been listening to this song on and off for about 4 years now. And still...the moment the beat begins, the song just got me. Every time I hear it. Four years man! I mean...I just don't get sick of it...ever. 

When I met Nneka's producer FARHOT in the studio for the first time a few months ago, I was actually a little nervous, just because I think his beats are so so damn good. = P (Shouts to Farhot..always smiling ;P)



Last year after she dropped her second album I went to see her live in Cologne. This girl is as tall as a smurf and thin like Erykah (used to be) , but her voice filled the room and every inch of my body.

All of it...her songs, her performance and expression were pure emotion. She was. could feel and see that she meant every word she sang, from the bottom of her soul plus she was kinda funny too. 

Loved it. 


For those of you who are not German, did you know that (Hamburg based) Nneka is half German ? =) 


Make sure you get to see her live,when you have the chance! It's def worth it.She  is gonna be the support-act on the " Distant Relatives Tour " (US) with Nas and Damian Marley hitting the roads May 2010.
