The wonderful thing about having a guest room is the possibility to share not only the flat, also share ideas and thoughts about streetart, life and music. This does not happen with every guest, of course, but sometimes it works out well. Earlier this year I had the pleasure to host a young musician called Telekineses, he composed some songs for his new album here in Berlin. And last weeks guest in my house was the artist Luke Ramsey, he was was invited to participate at the Pictoplasma Festival to give a lecture about his work and live on a small Canadian Island called Pender Island:
“My partner Ange and I operate Islands Fold, an artist residency located on Pender Island, B.C, Canada. We invite artists to our residency free of charge. We collaborate, promote health and well being, and produce unique art and publish zines. Islands Fold is sustained through public support by purchasing the publications and art we sell online.”
Here is the website of Island Fold where you can see and buy all the things, he and his collaboration partners have created. If you are located in Berlin, you can see some of his things at the “Pen and Paper ” exhibition (artSpace Gallery – Linienstr. 109 – unitl 24th of April)
While he was here, he created a picture, which he gave away for free at his speech. The person who got it, was choosen by a paper plane, which flew from the balkony into the audience. Nice Idea. In his speech he talked about the development of his different characters, the collaborations with other artists but also about the need to slow down the daily things.
And he left a nice drawing on my wall:
