The hare, the fox, and the human are all part of an intertwined yet paradoxical cycle of connectedness. Fox and hare, human and balance, enlightenment and infinity, sunyata and sea—all flow together in the never-ending adventure that is life.

Sometimes Art is just Life.
I would like to start this post with a quote by Ai Weiwei: Life is art. Art is life. I never separate it.This comes after long weeks of fretting over the fact that I’m in a rather turbulent period in my life where lots of changes happen, prohibiting me of having time to dedicate on … Continue reading Sometimes Art is just Life.
HOW NOT TO GET DEPRESSED AS AN ARTIST
Fighting with Depression (acrylic on canvas 72’ x 48’, 2016) is a canvas that I created when I was dissatisfied with the lack of recognition my work received. By the time I finished the canvas I felt already in a better mood, so I added the swallow´s nest in the storm lantern. Don’t ask me … Continue reading HOW NOT TO GET DEPRESSED AS AN ARTIST
Trying to Understand
“trying to understand” - appeals to approach the reality from a higher level.
Lost (acrylic on canvas 46 x 23 cm) is a painting that expresses a feeling that's very common nowadays. It features some African people who rather risk their lives by crossing a sea in an overloaded shaky dingy than to suffer a miserable existence in their homelands, the Arab man who finds no better purpose … Continue reading Lost
The Blowfish who Stole my Weekend.
Porcupinefish are also called blowfish because they have the ability to inflate their bodies by swallowing water or air, thereby becoming rounder. This increase in size (almost double vertically) reduces the range of potential predators to those with much bigger mouths. A second defense mechanism is provided by the sharp spines, which radiate outwards when … Continue reading The Blowfish who Stole my Weekend.

Why do you have so many contemporary painters who pose with brush and pallet in their hands while most of their work consists of digitally created canvas prints? Previous generations were proud to pose with the latest tools of their craft that offered them more possibilities to increase the quality and quantity of their output. … Continue reading Artists and the Middle Way.
My Kingdom for a Comfortable Chair.
An incredibly comfortable chair. One that looks nice. I just want to be able to sit and work without having to use any muscle in my body except my fingers and maybe my brain muscle. Those who're following me for a while will probably notice that my studio became a little crammed. That's also a … Continue reading My Kingdom for a Comfortable Chair.
The Newtonian space and time collapsed in 1905 when Albert Einstein, at the age of twenty-six, published four groundbreaking papers: On the Photoelectric Effect; Brownian Motion; The Special Relativity, and The Equivalence of Mass and Energy.

Resurrection as a Literary Device.
Resurrection isn’t anymore the monopoly of theologians, priests and other religious leaders, but has become also a recurring subject of intense research and speculation among artists and scientists.
The main purpose of this novel is to entertain the reader with a historical fantasy: a spellbinding epic tale of ambition, anarchy and absolute power, set against the canvas of North America, Europe and Asia during World War 1 and the ensuing great depression.
Why do Writers Write?
Writing is a way to find rest and repose amidst an incredibly busy and bustling life — an oasis found through the writing process and its fruition. It helps me to release some complex and convoluted thoughts that I foist with the narrative of a historical fantasy. This provides me with an effective source of grounding and stress release and takes a greater burden off of my shoulders.
During the past weeks the word transition was prominently echoing through my mind. The primary cause for it was that I’ve been traveling extensively lately before settling down again in one of my familiar lay backs, Grand Canary. Soon after my arrival, the island was hit by a heavy sandstorm (locally referred to as a … Continue reading Transitions
