I am excited to share some great news with you guys! In less than 2 weeks I will be going on a month-long trip to Nepal, where I will be doing a 10-day meditation retreat at a Tibetan Buddhist monastery and then I will be trekking through the Himalayas for the second part of the trip.
When I come home I will be taking all the inspirations gathered from the trip and turning it into a new body of work for a solo exhibition (alongside a publication and a screen print release) in March 2018 which will be supported and presented by @thejaunt as the first project of their Jaunt Magna format.
It will be a quite a unique and inspiring journey for me and you can support and follow along by pre-ordering a screen print for 60€. Find out more details here: thejaunt.net/trips
Guess what? I secretly did another mural just before I left Rovaniemi. Just an imaginary one this time with my new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, which will come in handy for future mural sketches. Now back in Berlin and pretty excited to attend the
sketch walk at Apple Kurfürstendamm tomorrow that’s centered around observational drawing. Check out the link in my bio for information on future sessions. In promotional partnership with @Apple.
Some photos from the "More Than This" exhibition with @matiassantamariacea @pablobenzo and @tooneymax at Mommsen 35 (Mommsenstraße 35,10629 Berlin), where you can find some of my new ceramics, sketches and experiments. Show runs till Sept 30th.
Finally had a chance to post photos of my recently completed mural in Rovaniemi, Finland!
This mural, titled "Vessel", is a reminder that we are so much more than what we think we are as humans beings. We are not limited to our bodies, our identities or our past memories. If we can fully open up and let go of the judgement and control over ourselves and others, we will allow space for magic to happen.
It's been an absolute pleasure working on this project in Rovaniemi, Finland. It's my biggest mural to date and i've learned so much from the process. A massive thank you to @mytkis for being the best assistant ever🏆. Thanks to the @upeart team for the amazing opportunity to share my art in Finland. Thank you Finland for the northern lights, the lovely and supportive people, the delicious fish soup and the much needed saunas. I am super grateful for the whole experience. Till next time 💚
A closer look at the mural I painted in Mauritius a couple days ago. Feeling really grateful for the beautiful people I've met there over the past week. Big Thanks to @porlwi festival, @mr.barlo @lucazamoc @bault_ @gorg_oner @falklandartist @boxvincent @megatrops
Just finished this little lady for @porlwi festival in Port Louis, Mauritius. What a pleasure to be painting on a tropical island in winter! I hope to come back for a proper vacation next time :) Thanks to Jurgen for the invitation, Jordan for the assistance, all the awesome artists involved in the festival, and the Canadian Embassy of Mauritius for the sponsorship.

I realized how much I miss this beautiful and more reclusive time of the year. Perfect time to get clear about what I should be spending my energy on, and let go of what no longer serves.
This print is hand screened by the awesome print studio @leraclet.
