Licht auf den Straßen – Light on the streets

My new book

At last, my art book „Light on the Streets.“ Here is the introductory text:

In „Light on the Streets“ you will find 112 pictures created in the last seven years. Since 2013 I have been working on the graphic capture of cityscapes and the charm of this subject has become stronger and stronger for me. The light, which draws patterns on the streets of Berlin and many other places around the world, is the main theme of my work, as it creates its own mixture of familiarity and astonishment. The reflections and shadows give the rooms an idiosyncratic structure and give the hectic big city something almost antiquated, giving the pictures a magic of their own. I invite you to search for this magic on the following pages and wish you as much pleasure with this book as I had when designing my cityscapes.

Behind the streets – over the pedestrian bridge
My latest work is a scratchboard of the pedestrian bridge between Dänenstraße and Sonnenburger Straße in western Prenzlauer Berg. There are only a few of the typically broken buildings decorated with graffiti – here are some of the last examples.

Art Market and a little café

Urban Spree and Aromas Cafè

The Berlin Graphic Days for this year are over. As always, I am exhausted but very happy that some of my favorites have new owners. Among other things, my oldest sratchboard, the „Victoria Park“ and my latest work, is the „Wet Sparrow“ of it. And many many prints.

Since yesterday (March 6, 2018), some of these pictures (more precisely eight) hang in Aromas Café in Marienburger Straße in Prenzlauer Berg. A very cozy little restaurant near the Boesner.

Anyone who wants to dine in Berlin / Westend in November AND at the same time wants to take a look at my pictures will have the opportunity in the Ristorante „Il Cardinale“ in which six of my works are displayed. The whole thing is part of the action „Art in the window“ and is organized by the association „Family and Friends“.
