Last November I spent 4 days in Denmark for my Solo exhibition at the Idoart Lab, located at the former TANK shop space in Aarhus. Rikke and Matias from Idoart were such sweethearts and so are the others I met through this exhibition. We had so much fun hanging out and installing the show together. Below is a nice little video interview they made where I talk about some of my inspirations for this series of work. The trip was short but it was an amazing experience to revisit Denmark and share my art with the people there this time. I'll be back!

I'm happy to announce that I will be having my next solo show in Aarhus, Denmark next week. The exhibition is host by I DO ART Agency at the new I DO ART Lab (former TANK shop space).
It's been a while since when I was living in Denmark in 2007-08, so I'm really looking forward to revisit and exhibit my work there. As some of you might know, I studied at Designskolen Kolding in Denmark for a brief amount of time. It's also where I started my current art practice, so going back gives me a feeling that things have somehow come to a full circle.
The opening will be on the 21st of November at 18:00 (6pm). Hope I'll see some familiar faces there.
It's been a great pleasure to exhibit my work in Geneva for 2 weeks. Thanks for those who came to the exhibition and showed support. The show is extended for 2 more days so it will end on the 28th, with a finnisage this Saturday. See flyer below for details.
Here are some photos taken by Gabee at the opening and the live drawing day.
Here are 2 illustrations I did recently for two Canadian Magazines. The first one for NUVO Magazine - an article about reading, writing and publishing in the age of the e-book. The one below is for Backbone Magazine about scouting for employees for the I.T. sector.
The Circle Show was a success! Thanks for everyone who came support Urban Spree and our artists at the opening. Below is my piece for the show. Also take a look at all the amazing artworks in the show on the online catalogue here.
This coming Saturday is the opening of The Circle Show, a big group exhition that I'm organizing (together with Rylsee and Johannes Mundinger) and also part of. The Circle Show features a selection of Berlin based artists within the creative network of Urban Spree, our artist Residency. Some of the participants of the exhibition include Klub 7, BLO, Look & Vidam (The Weird), Hazard Hope & John Reaktor (Sam Crew) etc.
"Urban Spree is not only an exhibition space but also a cultural melting pot. Since it was founded last year, we’ve already built a vibrant community attracting local creatives as well as artists from all over the world. For the first Circle Show, we've invited a great lineup of artists to make an art piece each, resembling the shape of a circle. The idea of the circle represents our circle of friends that made Urban Spree an amazing place. We are looking forward to showcase the best creatives in Berlin who are closely connected to us."
Last Sunday, Rylsee and I did some live painting with some of our friends at the ARTnapping fundraising event in Berlin. All proceeds go to the Berlin Children and Youth House to help children in poverty. An afternoon well spent!
Pictoplasma is in Madrid right now. They're having an exhibition of Contemporary Character Design and Art at La Casa Encendida. The exhibition runs from May 23 to September 8. See more pictures from the show here.
While I was having holidays with Rylsee in Switzerland, we had a day-trip in the beautiful little town Annecy (France) to attend the opening of a group show we're part of. The show is called Art by Friends and it's held in the cells of a former prison, Palais de l'isle. For those who wish to attend, it will be up until the 23rd of June.
