MILLERNTOR GALLERY #5
/ Heiligengeistfeld1 / 20359 Hamburg / Germany
*Unfamiliar – the potential of perspectives*
The topic of the Millerntor Gallery #5 is ‘unfamiliar’ and so is the Millerntor Gallery itself. It is a gallery, an art space and cultural festival in a football stadium – all to inspire and connect people to get socially involved.
‘Unfamiliar’ can be something strange, something unknown, something irritating. The Millerntor Gallery collective wants to raise curiosity and focus on social topics. New or old, black or white, commercial or non-profit and everything in between: It’s all a question of perspective. A change of perspective can sometimes change the thing itself.
Our intent is to offer this experience of transition to all the participants. We want to promote a discourse of the potential of perspectives.

COLORS OF MY HOME
I am happy to be part of this project! / See the ART section for pictures…
As much as we want to think that it is easy to get along with everyone, we can’t ignore that there are still some cultural differences that all of us face every day in our cities around the world. Our Social Cities One Wall – One Love series this October titled ‘Colors of my home‘ is dedicated to the people living in a multi culture housing complex in Berlin. Inhabitants and neighbours are dealing with the sometimes challenging aspects of understanding different customs all under one roof.
This is not always easy as we all know. Not only but often mostly language barriers are what gets in the way of mutual understanding and is what breeds fear or misconceptions.
However, there is always one language that we all understand:
ART. Communication within and through images, objects and colors.
With the strong and ongoing support of these artists:
BLO / TANKPETROL / deerBLN / ADDISON KARL / VHILS / YOH NAGAO / AWK and PAOLA DELFIN
SF Solo Show / Drawings

DECISIONS MADE / BLOOOM...
After being one of the curators of BLOOOM Art Fair since day one in 2010, I have decided to leave the team to focus on my personal projects. Some differences and changes have been the reason for coming to this decision.
Being part of BLOOOM has been fun and a great experience and I hope it will keep on growing in the future.
Finally! After weeks and weeks of hard work - it's time for the all new WEBSITE RELAUNCH!
I tried to bring everything together / to draw an outline of what I do. ...CORPORATE and LOGO works, ILLUSTRATIONs, my ART shown in galleries..., and even the BLOGS and side projects I am working on. Pretty much the whole range in a quite minimalistic surface.
Sometimes it's a little hard to categorize. For example some of the ILLUSTRATION works are pretty CORPORATE and vice versa... Plus - I only show some selected works here... The works shown on this website are not always in chronological order - 'cause some oldies are goldies…
