13th june: OMG* I´m veeeery nervous* because tonite I plan to hand out my new "Patrick Bartsch Painter" folders ... for the veeeery first time* "Metropolis" will be part of that evening too ... and I think, that I fit peeeerfect with it together* :* <3 PLS MEET ME LATER SOMEWHERE CLOSE TO THE MAIN ENTRANCE* <3

13th june: dear diary*

^^ my very first ´Patrick Bartsch Painter´ folder tour ^^

at the opening night of "Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin" in Haus der Kulturen*
I share awesome memories with that place, such as Teddy Award/Berlinale, Ulrike Ottinger exhibition, ... and since today my very first hand out of my new folder*
Normally I´m used to be alone in a room and to create paintings in oil on canvas. so I was quite nervous before, but those people there have been veeeery nice to me ... as I was it to them* I love that sort of people. they give me the feeling to be part of a huge family.

near the main entrance I found a good place to stay ... and wait till one bus after the other drove past and groups of people got out of those buses. I had as choice the german and english folder. most of the people thought, that I hand out a program for the evening, but I explained it, that I´m painter who paints Berlin in oil on canvas. most of those people liked my answer and accepted to take my folder. one woman told me that she´s an illustrator, someone else that she is a painter too, ... and many tourists from all parts of the world. it felt very good to have some talks with them.
a funny situation was, when a girl said to me: "you lived in Austria!". I was surprised and kind of shocked about it ... and asked in return: "why do you know that?" ... she answered: "it´s written in the folder!" ... then I needed to laugh and just said: "OH SORRY! yes, sure* it´s written in the folder!" :)
after handing out about 80 folders ... I decided to stop my job and go inside the building too. it was a strange feeling for me, because ... on a certain point I had no idea anymore ... who had a folder ... and who knows now ´what´ about me ...

I enjoyed the evening, but needed to leave soon, because the lamp on my bike doesn´t work and I didn´t want to drive home in full darkness. so I left soon and did a wonderful short bike tour through my hood ... met some friends on the street ... and felt completly happy about that great evening with so many awesome new people* <3

on my instagram account (patrickbartschberlin) ... I posted some pictures ...

14th june: OMG^^ my little spider grew HUGE in the past months* now she has almost the size of big flies* and she hunts them too now* OOOOH I´m so proud of her eating all other insects in my kitchen* :* <3

14th june: loooove my glamorous fabulous very own private fitness studio* :* <3 working hard on my sixpack* :* <3 now in the 36th week of doing workout at home* :* <3

16th june: Ich steckte mir ein großes Kissen unter mein T-Shirt und parodierte Helmut Kohl.

Sein großer Bauch erschien mir als besonders wichtig, als ich 10 Jahre alt war. Wir waren auf Schullandwoche irgendwo in Österreich. Zwei Jahre zuvor war meine Mutter mit mir aus Deutschland vor meinem gewalttätigen Vater geflohen. Ich fühlte mich als Deutscher ... obwohl ich dies zu verstecken lernte, da man als Deutscher in Österreich nicht unbedingt beliebt ist. Aber als wir bei dieser Schullandwoche aufgefordert wurden ein etwa 10 minütiges Programm zur Präsentation vor den anderen zu gestalten, war für mich sofort klar, daß ich Helmut Kohl parodieren würde. Das war im Jahr 1984. Voller Aufregung inszenierte ich eine Art Fernsehshow. Als ich diese dann präsentieren durfte interessierte sich niemand für meine Präsentation ... nicht mal die Lehrer.
Dennoch denke ich immer wieder an diese Jahre zurück, weil als in Österreich lebender Deutscher ... war es für mich vor allem Helmut Kohl welcher das Land über die Grenzen hinaus vertrat ... in welchem ich geboren war.

R.I.P. Helmut Kohl

22nd june: ^^ Gemeinsam in einer Ausstellung mit Prof. Klaus Vogelgesang ^^

Wir sind seit 13 Jahren direkte Nachbarn. Ich sehe ihn von meinem Fenster aus beinahe täglich und mal haben wir mehr Kontakt und mal weniger ...
Das erste mal hörte ich seinen Namen von Bruno Gmünder. Bruno erzählte mir von meinem berühmten Nachbarn, welchen man nicht nur in Deutschland kennt. Aber es sollte noch ein paar Jahre dauern bis Klaus und ich ... uns anfreundeten. Klaus ist ein Ausnahmetalent als Künstler ... gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter des "Kritischen Realismus" ... feierte seine größten Erfolge in den 70ern ... und trat eine Professur für Zeichnung an der Akademie für Bildende Künste an der Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz an.
Er ist ein großartiger Künstler und in diesen 13 Jahren Nachbarschaft gab es auch ein paar Jahre in welchen wir intensiveren Kontakt pflegten. In dieser Zeit lernte ich enorm viel von ihm. Irgendwie sah ich in Klaus eine Art "privater" Professor. Er lehrte mir Dinge wie zum Beispiel: den Wert der Genauigkeit.

Seit gestern sind seine und meine Arbeiten Teil der Gruppenausstellung "Art Is Resistance" in der Werkstattgalerie und damit geht ein Traum für mich in Erfüllung <3
Natürlich habe ich mir gestern bei der Eröffnung auch ein neues Buch von ihm gekauft und für mich signieren lassen.
Danke sehr!
<3

22nd june: als ich ein Teenager war gab es diese über 40 Jahre alten Männer, welche auf mich besonders schrullig und eigenartig wirkten: ... und zwar diese mit Goldketten, Baseball Caps, sportlicher Kleidung als ob sie gerade vom Golfplatz kommen und einem Dauergrinsen im Gesicht ... einem Grinsen, als ob es für sie keine Probleme in dieser Welt gäbe.

<= und genau so sehe ich jetzt mit 43 Jahren aus*

Ich denke, daß ich mich mit mir selbst unterhalten hätte, wenn der ´Patrick von damals´ auf den ´Patrick von heute´ zusammengetroffen wäre.

26th june: ^^* it´s a secret *^^

after two months work ... two secret new paintings in oil on canvas are finished. ordered by a secret person for a secret event*

secret till august 2017 ... then they will be shown to the public*

love those two new powerful secret important paintings in oil on canvas*

and YES! they are important! ... in august 2017 you will see them and understand why*

:* <3

26th june: ^^ my father ^^

he was wrong with a loooot of things ... such as beating my mother ... such as never accepting his first son (my half brother) ... such as a loooot of more really bad things.
but he loved his son Patrick ... me ... that child he always wanted to have. he spent his whole life ... all of his love for me. He ... as car mechanic and bus driver ... made it happen to pay for me one of the best education (private school) possible to get in Europe. He accepted me for being gay.
my father is old now ... I mean: not that much old ... he is 72 years old now, but with his heart pacemaker he seems to be very old and fragile.
two years ago ... after living 70 years in the same village in the deepest black forest ... he moved to the city Augsburg (because his wife´s daughter lives in Munich and they want to be closer to her).
his wish is that I visit him there. we plan it since about one year and next week I will go there.
those four days will be special, because it will be the only time in our lives, that we share something like that together.
I plan to show him that sort of respect, which a son should give to his father. I will try to explain him, that my life is good and he doesn´t need to worry about it ... and that it was useful, that I did that expensive education, which he paid for. I plan not to talk about bad things, which happened in the past, because I think that it´s too late now.
I´m very excited about that journey next week already.

28th june: preparing myself for the meeting with my father next week: never we talked to eachother in a kind of normal conversation. we met eachother about 10 times in the past 30 years. our telephone calls ... about every two weeks ... last about two minutes to maximum five minutes. the usual question of my father was "do you have enough to eat?" ... and my answer was always "yes." <= this was enough information for my father.
Now I have the feeling that next week everything will be different. I have the feeling that now ... he really wants to know what I did the past 43 years. I will spend four days with him together ... which means ... that I will have respectively one day to discribe him 10 years of my life ...

29th june: OMG^^* just saw a SHOOTING STAR in the sky* ... the first one in my life*

first I thought: "*DAMN* that plane flies on an enormous hight!" ... then I thought: "that´s not a plan. perhaps it´s an ufo!" ... but then I realized, that it´s a SHOOTING STAR^^*
OMG^^* how beautiful it was* ... then I thought about a wish* ... a wish which is going to change my whole life*

<3

then I thought about the first painting which I created on a canvas. with acrylic ... in the age of 19. that was 24 years ago. I painted a shooting star too as part of that painting*

now my circle of life has finished another round ... and at the same time is going start another round*

<3

29th june: zu "Eheschließung für Personen gleichen Geschlechts" im Deutschen Bundestag am 30. Juni 2017:
Patrick´s dumme Frage: jajaja, ich weiß, es gibt keine "dummen" Fragen, aber trotzdem fühle ich mich irgendwie "dumm" weil ich meine queere Umgebung nicht verstehe.
Also ich war noch nie der Beste in Sachen Politik und kann vieles einfach nicht nachvollziehen. Was ich aber weiß, ist: dass es immer wieder politische Überraschungen gibt. Deshalb kann ich es einfach nicht nachvollziehen, weshalb alle jetzt schon soooo sehr am Feiern sind!
Kann mir das bitte jemand erklären? Weshalb feiern jetzt schon alle? Hab ich "dummer" Mensch tatsächlich irgendetwas wieder nicht kapiert?

29th june: <3 Alles erdenklich Gute zum Geburtstag <3

Allerliebster Bruno* ... als Facebook neu war versuchte ich auch Dich dafür zu gewinnen. Als Antwort kam von Dir, daß es Dich nicht interessiere ... wann wer am Klo sitzt*
Du gehörst wohl zu den Menschen welche mir in Berlin am nähesten stehen. Auch wenn Dir dies eventuell garnicht bewußt ist. Unsere Treffen seit 2003 sind vor allem dem Zufall geschuldet. Unser erstes Kennenlernen im Bruno´s Geschäft ...unsere zufälligen Treffen auf unterschiedlichsten Events (mal mit und mal ohne Maske) ... unser zufälliges Treffen im Tiergarten (wo Du mir das Angebot machtest meine bisher einzige Einzelausstellung in Berlin zu finanzieren und somit zu ermöglichen) ... und auch bist Du wohl der einzige Mensch in Berlin, welcher mich zu Hause besucht hat und an meinem Arbeitsplatz und meinen Vater zweimal getroffen hat und usw.
Deshalb freute ich mich umso mehr, als ich Dich eines Tages dann doch auf Facebook entdeckte. Als mir damals Dein Geburtstag auf Facebook angezeigt wurde, rief ich Pascual an, um Dich in Deinem Büro zu besuchen. Wir besorgten einen Blumenstrauß und stürmten die Bruno Gmünder Hauptzentrale* Mit strahend freudigem Lachen sprangen ... hüpften wir an der Eingangsrezeption vorbei ... den langen Gang an Deinen Mitarbeitern vorbei ... bis wir am Ende des Ganges an Deinem Büro ankamen. Freudig, aber doch erstaunt und etwas entsetzt blicktest Du uns an und erklärtest uns, daß es ein Geheimnis sei, wann Du Deinen Geburtstag feierst. Worauf ich Dir entgegnete "Lieber Bruno, wenn Dein Geburtstag auf Facebook angezeigt wird, dann ist das kein Geheimnis!" <3
Auch heute wird mir Dein Geburtstag wieder auf Facebook angezeigt und ich freue mich sehr darüber. Schön, dass Du mittlerweile unserem "Facebook Klositzer Verein" mitangehörst und mit vielen wichtigen und interessanten Beiträgen bereicherst.
Jetzt bleibt mir noch Dir Alles Alles Gute, Gesundheit, Friede & Glück zu wünschen und daß Dein heutiger Geburstag ein schöner Tag wird*

<3

LG*
Patrick

30th june: DANKE MERKEL <3

"Nur wer närrisch scheint und weise handelt ... ist wirklich weise!"

Meiner Meinung nach hat Merkel ALLES richtig gemacht! Es ist zum Großteil IHR Verdienst letztendlich den heutigen historischen Tag in einem ERZKONSERVATIVEN STAAT, wie es Deutschland nunmal ist, möglich gemacht zu haben.

Natürlich gilt mein Dank auch ALLEN anderen, welche ebenso Jahrzehnte lang für diesen heutigen historischen Tag gekämpft haben!

Ich freue mich sehr :) <3

DANKE SEHR*

<3

30th june: I am what I am ... and thank you ... that I may be who I am ... in Germany <3

30th june: OOOOHHHH^^ mein aaaaallerliebster deutscher Lieblingsschauspieler hat sich auch heute gemeldet* :* I <3 Kostja Ullmann :* <3 ... und übrigens: hab mich mit ihm schon mal über meinen Balkon hinweg unterhalten, als er mit seinem Skateboard eine Filmszene hier gedreht hat* :* <3 OOOOOHHH I love him* :* <3 (Es ist genug Ehe für alle da.)

1st july: OMG^^ one of my aaaalllll times GREATEST HEROES <3 KURT COBAIN <3 ... "Cobain’s paintings, which will be shown alongside some of his notebooks, have been in storage since his death in 1994." ... caaaaaan´t wait*

1st july: Patrick´s Nachtrag zu: "Merkel und ihr Schabowski Moment."

äääöööööhhhhmmm ... HALLO!? ... vielleicht haben es manche noch nicht kapiert: Merkel ist nicht Schabowski!
Unsere Bundeskanzlerin Frau Dr. Merkel ist absoluter Profi! Sie gehört ... OFFENSICHTLICH ... zu den Besten in ihrem Gebiet! <= Diese Frau weiss was sie tut! Mit jedem Satz! Jedem Wort! Jeder Bewegung! Jedem Schritt!
es wäre als hätte man Nureyev entgegnet, er wisse nicht was er während des Tanzens tue! ... oder einem Muhammad Ali während eines Boxkampfes! ... oder einem Kasparov während eines Schachspiels!
Fr. Merkel weiß was sie tut! ... und sie hat alles richtig getan!
Sie hat mich und uns Schwule und Lesben in einer Art und Weise vertreten wie es zuvor kaum ein anderer führender CDU Politiker tat!
nochmals: Merkel gehört der CDU an! Keinen Grünen oder Der Linke oder der SPD! Merkel gehört der CDU an und vertritt Millionen von ERZKONSERVATIVSTEN Wählern ... viele ... welche ohne zu zögern auch eine AfD wählen würden! Ein "Ja" von Merkel hätte die AfD wohl in vielen Orten Deutschlands über die fünf Prozenthürde getrieben! <= und das kann hoffentlich niemand meiner Facebookfreunde wollen. Denn: die AfD ist KEIN SPIEL!

Wir dürfen heiraten und dafür DANKE ich allen Beteiligten!

<3

3rd july: dear diary^^

some hours before I should travel to my father´s place ... we had a fight on the phone and were about to cancel our meeting.
But what would be the alternative? my father could die any moment because of another heart attack. some years ago ... after his first heart attack ... he said it already, that he will not go through another heart attack. Which means if we would cancel our meeting, then I would be responsible for that, that his last big wish wouldn´t become fullfilled. I met people with a last memory of their parents ... which is a fight! I try to avoid that. I don´t want to live with something like that for the rest of my life.

I decided to call him again and fix those emotions which got broke at the fight some minutes before. So tomorrow morning I will travel to Augsburg. that fight caused a certrain pressure which took that relaxed feeling which I had before. I mean: I worked several months on that relaxed feeling ... which got destroyed just some hours before our meeting. but whatever ... I will give my best to spend four days with my father ... in peace.

He is the way he is and I am the way I am. but I have just that one father ... and I don´t know for how long

and: it´s his wish that I come there.

3rd july: Diesen Mittwoch findet bei mir kein "Offenes Atelier" statt. Ich werde in Augsburg bei meinem Vater sein.

This wednesday there is no "Open Studio". I will be in Augsburg to visit my father.

4th july: Patrick´s Kommentar: " den Preis finde ich absolut passend* wenn man von Mona Lisa als teuerstes Gemälde ausgeht. Mit geschätzten 800 mio bis 1 Milliarde ... würde es in eine Versteigerung gehen. dann wäre man bei Vermeer und Caravaggio bei geschätzten 500 bis 600 Mio ... würde das Wunder geschehen solche in einer Versteigerung zu finden. Dann sind 210 Mio für diesen Gauguin passend. ... dagegen wirken Auktionsrekorde von Picassos und Richters wie "Spielzeug" * ... "

4th july: ... ich bin dann jetzt gleich mal auf dem Weg zu meinem Vater ... um mich dafür zu bedanken, daß er (als Automechaniker <= das sage ich natürlich nicht. obwohl ich finde Automechaniker ja super und sexy*) für mich eine der besten Privatschulen Europas bezahlt hat ... und mir somit ein "besseres" (<= in seinen Worten) ... ein "anderes" (<= in meinen Worten) Leben ermöglicht hat.

so und jetzt muss ich los zum Bus nach Augsburg*

<3

9th july: <3 Autofahren in Augsburg <3

ICH HABE ES GETAN! :* <3

... vor etwa 20 Jahren bin ich mit meinem Auto (dunkelbrauner Opel Kadett Berlina (Berlina bedeutet die viertürige Version)) in den Bergen der Steiermark über eine Eisplatte gerutscht ... etwa 30 Meter in ein Tal geflogen ... es hatte mich dreimal überschlagen ... bin auf dem Dach gelandet ... und wie durch ein Wunder ... unverletzt aus dem Beifahrerfenster gekrochen. Danach bin ich so gut wie nie mehr Auto gefahren.
JETZT ... bei meinem Ausflug nach Augsburg habe ich meine ersten beiden Übungsfahrstunden genommen. Dabei saß mein Vater auf dem Rücksitz. Er hatte es zuvor abgelehnt mir das Autofahren wieder beizubringen. Aber der Fahrlehrer war richtig gut! Er erklärte mir alles und ist mit mir sogar auf die Straße gefahren. <= Dies war seine Idee. Er meinte, daß mein Gefühl für das Autofahren vorhanden ist. Ich bin lediglich noch etwas "nervös" und sollte daher auf jeden Fall noch ein paar mehr Übungsfahrstunden in Berlin nehmen, bevor ich selbständig auf der Straße fahre. <= Diesen Rat werde ich natürlich befolgen.

so plane ich jetzt gaaaanz langsam in den kommenden Monaten wieder Autofahren zu lernen.

... und weshalb?: Damit ich mit meinen Gemälden auch mal irgendwohin fahren kann*

<3

10th july: OMG^^* I loooooove my Berlin friends who I know almost since the first day since I came to Berlin* I <3 KRISS :* <3

11th july: *Ochsenrippchen* *Schweinshaxe* *Schweinsbraten* und *Weißwurst* untermalten das Treffen mit meinem Vater in Augsburg. Wobei lediglich ich die deftige Seite der bayrischen Küche genießen durfte, da meim Vater auf Grund seines Herzschrittmachers diese Speisen verwehrt sind.
Es tat gut vier Tage lang meinen Vater um mich zu haben und mich auf ein Kindsein zu konzentrieren ... ein beinahe vergessenes Gefühl.
An einem Tag nahm ich zwei Übungsfahrstunden in einer Fahrschule, wobei mein Vater währenddessen auf dem Rücksitz saß. An einem anderen Tag zeigte er mir Sehenswürdigkeiten in Augsburg ... wie die Fuggerei und den Golden Saal im Rathaus. Einen anderen Tag verbrachten wir gemeinsam in München.
Unser Treffen verlief friedlich. Ich betonte mehrmals wie wichtig es war, daß ich die Ausbildung in einer der besten Privatschulen Europas machen konnte ... welche mir mein Vater bezahlte. Ich betonte mehrmals, daß diese Ausbildung zu den wichtigsten Grundlagen gehört, damit ich mein Leben heute so leben kann und darf ... wie ich dies tue. Ich zeigte ihm eine Veröffentlichung eines meiner Fotos vom großartigen Musk Ming in einer chinesischen Zeitschrift. Zeigte ihm ein wunderbares handgemachtes Buch über mich als Künstler vom wunderbaren Mati Lempart für die Kunsthochschule in Karlsruhe. Zeigte ihm das Plakat von der aktuellen Gruppenausstellung "Art Is Resistance" ... bei welcher meine künstlerischen Arbeiten zusammen mit wundervollen Künstlern wie Naco Paris, Friedrich Lippe, Ingeborg zu Schleswig-Holstein, Prof. Klaus Vogelgesang, u.v.a. gezeigt werden. Zeigte ihm eine Auswahl von Fotos aus 14 Jahren Berlin.
Ich denke, daß ich ihn als Vater etwas stolz machte ... was letztendlich das Ziel dieser Reise war.

... und was ist die Moral dieser Geschichte: Daß man seinem Vater auch mal klipp und klar sagen sollte wie dankbar man für dies und jenes ist.

11th july: Lesbisch Schwules Straßenfest: Insiderinfo: ... aaaaaalso die großen, orangefarbenen Elektroverteilerboxen stehen schon an den Straßenrändern* :* <3 :* <3

12th july: meine Nachbarn sind wieder in der Zeitung ... (B.Z.: Kriminalität im Schwulenkiez: "Dies sieht alles nach straffen Strukturen aus!")

12th july: <3 BUDDHA BAR <3 okokok I listen to that since 20 years^^* I know which ones are good and not that good. just discovered T H A T BUDDHA BAR PRAGUE version with only about 4000 views on youtube. to aaaaaalllll Buddha Bar listeners: THIS ONE IS BLAAAAAST! ^^* pls enjoy it* :*

12th july: uuuuund passend zum Foto gibt´s heute Kuchen mit Nutella und Schoko- und Erdbeereis* :* <3 Patrick Bartsch´s Offenes Atelier ist jetzt geöffnet* <3

13th july: Ich glaube es hakt! Manche Menschen unter Gloria Viagra´s Post können tatsächlich nicht nachvollziehen, weshalb ich gegen einen Artikel mit der Überschrift "Warum ich ... bewusst nicht an der Regenbogenparade teilnehme" bin. Weil: KEIN CSD auf dieser Welt hat einen Aufruf aus der eigenen Szene verdient NICHT hinzugehen! Schon die Bilder aus Istanbul vergessen? und die Situation in Tschetschenien, Russland, usw.? In einer Überschrift dazu aufzurufen NICHT zu einem CSD in einem Land zu gehen in welchem es möglich ist ... muß wie ein Schlag ins Gesicht für jene queeren Menschen wirken, welche in ihrem Land nicht die Möglichkeit haben an einem CSD teilzunehmen. ... und wenn man etwas besser machen will, dann bitte dies VORHER tun und NICHT IN EINER HETZERISCHEN ÜBERSCHRIFT ZUM BOYKOTT AUFRUFEN!

13th july: 100 of my best paintings of my storage for 10 bucks each* <= this will be my special lesbian gay streetparty offer this weekend* pls find my booth close to the mainstage in Eisenacher Str.* eeeeveryone is already buuuusy here preparing for this weekend* see you soon* :* <3

13th july: tbt 2010 Patrick Bartsch aka Master Patrick: performance on a street in Vienna ... naked and just covered with one of my photographies ... the performance told a full story ... last about 10 minutes

14th july: Patrick´s Inner Monologues: "It may look weird, confusing, strange ... when a painter offers his paintings in oil on canvas for 10 euro each. But it´s exactly the opposite: To see my storage full of paintings ... feels like a heavy weight on my shoulders. But for creating new paintings ... I need to FEEL FREE* I promised to about 30 people to create new specific paintings and I have about 70plus paintings in my head which I want to realize soon. I want to create them as good as I created my paintings in the past. For that reason I need to FEEL FREE*
I think that the lesbian gay streetparty in Berlin with about 450 000 visitors is a good place to offer 100 of my best paintings out of my storage for 10 euro each. I want that people don´t have to think about the price. I want that the only question for them is: If they like to have a painting or not.
I hope as many people as possible will decide to get one or more of my paintings this weekend.
I need to FEEL FREE*"

14th july: also von mir aus kann´s losgeh´n* =D :* <3

15th july: ^^ 100 meiner besten Gemälde aus meinem Lager für je 10 euro ^^ wird mein Spezialangebot für das Lesbisch Schwule Strassenfest Berlin sein* <3 Mein Stand ist dieses Jahr in der Eisenacher Str. Nähe Hauptbühne* bis später <3 freue mich auf aaaaalllllleeeeee <3 :*

17th july: for suuuure ^^^ one of the veeeeery best weekends of 2017 ^^^

for many maaaany months I was waiting for that weekend*
the weather was perfect. those 450 000 people ... my BIIIG family was awesome as every year* ... shocking has been the fact that for the very first time ... I saw heavy equipped police men with machine guns running around at the lesbian gay streetparty ... for the reason to protect us.
About 80 paintings found new owners ... for glamorous places in fabulous cities such as St. Petersburg, San Francisco, New York, Paris, Zurich, ...
maaaaany friends visited me at my booth. It warms my heart always when I meet friends ... which I haven´t met since a long time. <3
A special THANX* goes to my amazing friend Nathan Duc Koestlin <3 who supported me on sunday afternoon and evening. at a moment when my voice was almost gone. people have been phascinated by his professional & lovely way to present art* <3

24th july: see you TONITE* :* <3 I LOOOOOOVE GLITZY Bryan Bruce <3 ... his FABULOUS WORK <3 ... and his GLAMOROUS FAMILY* <3

27th july: ^^ I´m 43 years old and single ^^
because:
I left my first boyfriend after he raped me.

my next boyfriend was my first big love. he broke up with me, because he wanted to be "free".

then I had a boyfriend who was that much jealous that he wanted to kill me.

the next boyfriend lived ... a that much destructive life, that I broke up, because otherwise our both lives would have ended very fast.

then I had for some years only affairs. not more. just affairs.

then I felt in love with a guy for some years. but I was too broke for him. he didn´t want to handle that I had no money at that time.

then I was in love with someone for some years ... but he died.

after all that: ... I still believe in love and I still believe in a relationship. in a relationship with love, peace and happiness. a relationship which lasts for years ... forever

29th july: Patrick´s Innere Monologe:

Am 15. und 16. Juli haben etwa 80 meiner Gemälde den Besitzer gewechselt. Klarer ausgedrückt: Ich habe jedes für 10 Euro verkauft. ... unterschiedlichste Größen ... alle zum selben Preis.

Was mich seit diesen Tagen besonders beschäftigt ... ist die Zahl "80". Ich empfinde diese Zahl als enorm! Normalerweise ist es üblich, dass Galeristen und/oder Künstler von Verkaufszahlen wie: eins, zwei, ... oder meist maximal vier ... sprechen ... wenn überhaupt ... da ja oftmals garnichts verkauft wird. Dagegen wirkt eine Zahl von "80" gigantisch <= dies ist mir vollkommen bewusst!

Ich kenne die Menschen auf der Straße. Komme ich doch selbst "von der Straße". Die Straße ist seit meiner Geburt mein zu Hause. Daher kenne ich auch bestens den Wert eines 10 Euro Scheines. 10 Euro sind auf der Straße nämlich viel Wert! So gut wie niemand hat auf der Straße 10 Euro "übrig". Für ein Gemälde 200 ... 500 oder noch mehr Euro zu verlangen ... erscheint mir als absurd. Ich komme von der Straße und arbeite auch für die Straße. ... aber eben auf meine Art und Weise. Viele andere Künstler taten und tun dies genauso: Keith Haring <= als Beispiel ... dessen Graffitis ebenso gratis für die Straße waren. Natürlich auch Banksy. Aber auch Christo u.v.a. ... man könnte sogar noch weiter ausholen und Straßenmusiker mitaufzählen. In meinem Fall wurden mit diesen 10 Euro ziemlich genau die Materialkosten gedeckt. Die Arbeit des Kreierens der Gemälde habe ich somit kostenfrei gemacht ... und ich fühle mich sehr gut dabei! Jede/r die/der mich beim lesbisch schwulen Straßenfest erlebt hatte ... wie ich meine Gemälde angepriesen hatte ... kann sich vorstellen wie "gut" ich mich dabei gefühlt hatte. Sogar so gut, daß ich ab Sonntagnachmittag beinahe keine Stimme mehr hatte. Zum Glück half mir ab diesem Moment mein lieber Freund Nathan. ... und nochmal: etwa 80 Gemälde fanden dabei neue Besitzer. Dass diese Besitzer sich auch auf Städte wie St.Petersburg, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Zürich, ... verteilten ... freute mich nochmals besonders.

Vor vielen Jahren habe ich beschlossen mein Leben der Kunst zu widmen ... mich für die Kunst einzusetzen. Dass ich zur Zeit Öl auf Leinwand ... auf meine Art und Weise ... auf die Straße bringe ... empfinde ich als richtig und ebenso wichtig! ("wichtig" weil: kurz erklärt, weil anderes Thema: weg von Ikea Massenkunst und weiters: das Zurückbringen der handgemachten Kunst in die Köpfe und Herzen der Menschen)

Solange es das Universum will ... werde ich weitermachen. Aber zuerstmal muss ich doch noch ... irgendwie ... für mich selbst ... die Zahl "80" ... verarbeiten ... wahrhaben wollen ...

DANKE SEHR*

29th july: very welcome Adrien Brody in the world of painters* :* <3

30th july: Patrick´s Inner Monologues:
<3 my perfect bf <3
just a quick brainstorming. to remind myself what I´m looking for:
1st: he should love life itself more than anything else. it´s ok when he´s into material things and/or money too, BUT it shouldn´t be priority number one.
2nd: he should love to live. oh yes! I want to laugh with my bf. I want to have a great time with my bf. no one who brings me down all the time. I want a bf who is focused on the good and not on the bad things in life.
3rd: he should love to live. very important! my bf should love his life and other lives. he should love to be on that planet.
4th: he should love to live. on a way to build up a life. to grow. I want a bf who wants to grow and wants to see me growing too. the relationship with my bf should grow from boyfriends to become partners ... partners for life.
5th: he should love to live. I prefer a bf who is mostly sober. some party ... is ok ... and fine ... and I can handle it (as long he´s not getting violant while being drunk! <= in this case I would end the relationship immediately.) But most of the days he should be sober and clear in his minds and acting.
6th: he should love to live. in an acitve way. he should love to do something: having good food together, travelling, perhaps doing sports together, ...
7th: he should love his life. I prefer a bf who takes care of his body and health ... and yes! his clothings too! ... and yes! the flat too! for me ... it´s impossible to live in a dirty flat. if necessary, then a cleaner need to be ordered once a week. <= and yes! I pay for it*
8th: he should love to live. in a sexual way ... I´m not jealous at all. Important for me is, that my bf is interessted in me as person ... physical and psychic. I should be his number one ... as he is it for me. actually I don´t mind at all if my bf has sex with other people.
9th: he should love to love. I need to know that he wants me! I´m blind with recognizing "signs". I need a bf who literally tells me, that he wants me. of course I understand the body language too :*
10th: last but not least: he should love to live and to love ... with everything which belongs with it together: trust, having good times and bad times together, ... and love ... love ... love <3

all those points aren´t illusions. I know that people with those qualities exist. I met such people several times. and I will find someone again ... someone who fits together with most of those points written above. someone who fits together with me.

30th july: <3 Maite Kelly <3 ... ein Nachtrag ... Patrick Bartsch Style:

48 853 047 Aufrufe haben Roland Kaiser feat. Maite Kelly auf youtube mit ihrem Lied "Warum hast du nicht nein gesagt". <= um nur ein Beispiel zu nennen. Die Kelly Family sind absolute Megastars! <= jede andere Beschreibung wäre untertrieben. Also hat man mit Maite Kelly nicht irgendjemanden auf einer CSD Bühne in Berlin ... sondern einen Menschen ... eine Frau welche von Millionen Menschen bewundert, verehrt und geliebt wird. Dieser hart arbeitende Mensch <3 Maite Kelly <3 hat jeden ... nochmals: JEDEN Respekt verdient!
Als vor ein paar Jahren The Boss Hoss beim CSD Berlin auftraten, habe ich mir von den Verantwortlichen erklären lassen, dass JEDE und JEDER welche/r auf der CSD Hauptbühne auftritt einen DIREKTEN Bezug zu einem lesbisch schwulen Thema haben MUSS! anders ist kein Auftritt möglich! Dieser Grund ist dem CSD Organisationsteam bekannt und kann aber auch geheim gehalten werden. <= Ich denke, daß sich daran bis heute nichts geändert hat.
Natürlich treten Künstler auch dann öffentlich auf, wenn NEUES Material zur Verfügung steht. Jedoch einer Künstlerin zu unterstellen, daß Promotion der Hauptgrund bei einem CSD Auftritt ist, das ist kurz gefasst: MIES! SEHR MIES!
Die Siegessäule hat mit ihrem schäbigen Artikel (bei welchem ich keine Satire erkennen konnte und ja! auch nicht wollte!) gezeigt, daß sie keinen Stil hat. Welches ein Armutszeugnis für ein Lesbisch Schwules Stadtmagazin ist. Das dies in meiner Wohnstadt Berlin passiert ... das trifft mich umso härter. Stil kann man nicht kaufen ... auch nicht erlernen. Stil hat man oder eben nicht. Das Magazin Siegessäule hat offensichtlich keinen Stil und das finde ich sehr ... sehr schade!

Von meiner persönlichen Seite gibt es jedenfalls ein HOCH für Maite Kelly. Leider mußte ich während der CSD Bühnenshow andersweitig arbeiten und konnte ihren Auftritt nicht mitverfolgen. Aber ich bin mir sicher, daß er mir gefallen hätte ... denn ich liebe auch Schlagermusik* :*

30th july: eeeeveery sunday evening I bring myself with music in a good mood for glamorous ICKYparty* <3 tonite I hear it LOUD* DONNA SUMMER <3 OMFG I LOOOOOVE HER* :* <3 <3 <3 see you aaaaalllll later* :* <3 LOVE YOU TOO* :* <3 <3 <3

1st aug: self renovation part 17* <3 ZARA <3

pls let´s focus: I´m still within the first year of renovating my whole life.

those 14 years since I live in Berlin ... I didn´t care at all about clothes. almost all my clothes have been presents from friends and family.I´m VERY THANKFUL for their actions to help me! THANK YOU* <3 I didn´t care about clothes and/or had no money to buy new clothes. I was poor ... I felt poor ... and I wanted to look poor.
my first job in Berlin was at ZARA. I worked there in 2003/2004. today ... 14 years later ... I decided to go there again: as customer! the plan was: to buy a pair of shoes and perhaps a shirt. when I entered the store ... I realized that it was "SALE". OMG^^ WHAT A FEELING^^ I knew the male section and of course I told eeeevery salesman that I worked there too. within minutes I had the feeling of being part of the ZARA family ... again. BUT something has changed: today I was guest ... customer. at the end I spent about 180 euro for: two pairs of black shoes, one white t-shirt, two trousers, two jackets and one pullover. *DAMN* WHAT A FEELING* to choose clothes by myself. I felt huuuuungry! I enjoyed that feeling of really wanting new clothes and paying with my own money which I earned by the sale of my own art. :* <3

2nd aug: yesterday night in a bar: ... a stranger came to me and said:
"are you Patrick the painter?"
I answered "yes*"
and him "I would like to buy one of your paintings!".

I mean THIS was the veeeeeery first time, that something like that happened to me* ... a stranger asking me if I´m "Patrick the painter" <= OMG I really eeeenjoyed that situation* what a veeery special moment for me*
and to add, that he wants to buy a painting ... <= this was like the whipped cream on a huge *mmjjaammmmyyyy* ice cream bowl*

Thank You A Lot*

3rd aug: this is for YOU <3 because I LOVE YOU <3

just returned home from some morning swiming at Teufelssee* ... I know I know I know ... I shouldn´t take my phone into the lake* but this picture was really worth it* <3 ... always looking for some new stuff to paint in oil on canvas*

:* <3

25th may: one of the most beautiful & intense compliments I got because of my pictures is: "you look like, how someone imagines how a painter looks like." <= this compliment touches me veeeery deep inside of me ... and tells me: that I was born to be a painter! ... and I looove that feeling* <3

Thank You A Lot* :* <3

25th may: tbt in 2011* wonderful Musk Ming photographed by Patrick Bartsch* ... it´s not photoshopped* it´s 100 percent pure photography* <3 and YES! we did this photoshooting at around 5 a.m. in the morning in summer* short after the sun rised ... and almost no people have been there* <3 this picture even got published in a chinese magazine* <3

*didl didl di*

:* <3

28th may: on 5th june it will be three years that Brian left this planet. I think about him almost every day. I had no bigger love in my life as him. so he was my biggest love of my life so far. I miss him <3 those days around the 5th june are especially hard to handle. today three years ago he was still alive ...

29th may: Brian asked for my camera and started to run around on the street and took ... while running ... kind of "high speed" pictures of his impressions on the street: architecture, animals, humans, ... ... I think those pictures shouldn´t be forgotten ... ? (Artist Brian-Tennessee Claflin Dec. 2. 1980 - June 5. 2014 "Free Spirits Never Die")

30th may: ^^ rich&sexy ^^ loooove those glam glitzy cars in front of my studio ... eeeevery day* :* <3

1st june: ^^ WHOLE BODY PORTRAITS ^^

okokok caaaan´t keep that plan as secret anymore: will start sooooon with WHOLE BODY PORTRAITS ... 100 in oil on canvas in Patrick Bartsch style are planed! and YES! H U U U G E SIZE! * <3

I think those face portraits look quite good already ... and soon I will be ready for whole body portraits. I want to hold our time: want that future generations are able to see: which haircuts we had ... which cloths we wear ... what kind of shoes. and yes! every portraited person in his unique moving style too* <3

I think this is a plan for the next five years ... ... caaaan´t wait to start* <3

but yes! first I will paint some more face portraits* loooove them* and THANK YOU A LOOOOOT for loving them too* <3

pls get in contact with me, when I may create a portrait of you too* Thank You* <3 (for the portraits it´s necessary pls to visit me in my studio in Berlin and I will take a photograpy of you, which one I will use as basis for the painting.)

1st june: hey my woooonderful looovely New York friends* :* <3 pls don´t miss THIS * “Who The Fuck Is That Guy? The Fabulous Journey Of Michael Alago.” first screening sold out, but another one on 19th july at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn. and one more in L.A.* <3 I LOVE Michael Anthony Alago <3

2nd june: "Hackers are free people like artists" Mr. Shady Putin pls DON´T USE THE WORD "artists" in your explanation for your shady politics!
full text he said yesterday: “Hackers can be anywhere, they can lurk in any country in the world. Of course, the general context of inter-state relations should be taken into account in this case because hackers are free people like artists. If artists get up in the morning feeling good, all they do all day is paint. The same goes for hackers.”

2nd june: ^^ being a "free" artist ^^

it may look easy ... perhaps some people think, that I´m an "free" artist with an very easy living ...
in my case: it´s the opposite!
I have to pay my price for creating "free" art. Never I wanted to depend on the selling of my art to pay my bills. for that reason ... indeed ... I have a regular job: working night shift in a hotel 11times a month. this job pays my bills and gives me the freedom to do the art ... which I do since 14 years ... since I live in Berlin.
tonite I managed my 9th night shift in a row, because someone is on vacation. that was a lot! ... and during the day I do my work at home and need to find time to create the art, which I want to create. similar like Joanne K. Rowling who wrote her first stories besides doing a regular job.
it´s a lot to handle both! but it gives me the freedom I need.
but NINE NIGHTS IN A ROW was definatly a looot*

2nd june: ^^rich&sexy^^ glamorous in front of my balcony* OMG I looooove jaguars with a jaguar sculpture on it* :* <3

2nd june: <3 my syrian bodyguard <3

he was a syrian kickbox champion. he was stunning beautiful ... like from a syrian fairytale ... of course muscular ... and his body was hard as steel.
we worked together for some months at GAP in Cologne in 2003. we laughed together and told stories to eachother ... we became kind of good friends.
at the same time my three years affair with a turkish streetfighter ended, when he robbed my flat for two days. He was high on dr*gs when he did it. in that moment I was really afraid of him, because I knew how strong he was.
I was afraid leaving my flat for the way to go to work and I was afraid leaving GAP to go home by myself. Without asking ... my syrian friend offered to escort me. I was veeery happy about it and accepted his generous offer.
We didn´t go straight home because we enjoyed eachothers presence. we walked through Cologne´s Schildergasse, went in some shops and went in a McDonalds.
and there was my turkish ex-lover too ... accidentally. my body felt like frozen and I started to sweat. My syrian bodyguard and I sat some tables away from him. I told him, that "he" is here too. my syrian bodyguard turned around and then he said to me, that he knows him and that I don´t need to be afraid of him. further he said to me, that I should stand up right now and go to my ex-lover and just say "we spent a good time together. you owe me nothing and I owe you nothing. now we go different ways!"
I felt safe with my syrian bodyguard and with shaking knees I went to the other table ... and said what I should say ... turned around and went back to our table.
Of course my ex-lover recognized my strong syrian bodyguard and obviously he knew him too.
my syrian bodyguard escorted me home again ... and never again my ex-lover tried to find me.

I was very happy with my syrian bodyguard. He was married with a woman who still lived in Syria. For myself I decided to leave Cologne within the next months and moved to Berlin.

<= this story came into my minds again today. and today Syria is destroyed. a lot of Syrian refugees came to Germany and I just thought about it how wonderful a friendship between someone from Syria (in that case "my syrian bodyguard") and someone from Germany (in that case "me") can be. <3
when I moved to Berlin ... we lost contact to eachother ... but one day we will meet eachother again ... somewhere* <3

THANK YOU* :* <3

3rd june: ^^rich&sexy^^ loooove those glam speedy glitzy cars in front of my balcony ... eeeevery day* :* <3

3rd june: <3 JAZZ <3

4th june: ^^ Patrick Bartsch paintings sold for 10 000 - 50 000 euro ^^

THIS is my real motivation!
THIS is my real goal!
Why?
because the little village in the deepest black forest ... where I come from ... named Schluchsee ... NEEDS to build a "Bartsch Museum"! <= this is my part of being a citizen of that village, which is that much connected with my family.
they don´t understand phrases such as "Patrick is a good artist." or "Patrick is know from New York to Tokyo." ... ... the only thing they understand is the phrase "a Patrick Bartsch painting is worth 10 000 to 50 000 euro." <= and for that reason I have to reach that goal as long as I´m alive. because I want that museum there! I owe it to my father ... I owe it to my family ... and I owe it to myself!

I hope I can make it to age 80 ... and I think till then my goal should have been reached.

NOW you all know where my motivation comes from* I´m a proud forest village boy who loves the place where he grew up* :* <3

and okokok ... if I should really make it to become successful&famous ... of course some of my paintings will stay in Berlin too* ... because I love Berlin too* :* <3

so pls cross fingers, that I can make it* :* <3

Thank You* <3

4th june: today I put my easel (Staffelei) in my working room. it´s the first time that I created a whole painting on my easel. before I used my easel just a little bit and most of all had it as decoration in my living room.
the first painting is a portrait of my three years affair ... that streetfighter who robbed my flat, while being in a dr*g rush. (I wrote about him a little story here on facebook some days ago). I feel no hate for him. we had a great time together and somehow he is the most important reason that I left Cologne and moved to Berlin in 2003.
his portrait which I created today looks good ... it contains all emotions, which I have for him.

<3

6th june: OMG^^ THANK YOU AAAALLLL* <3 for satisfying my facebook addiction and bringing my DOPAMINE LEVEL higher 68 000 times* =D <3 loooove you aaalll* :* <3 Thank You* <3

7th june: ^^ Mein erstes graues Schamhaar ^^

eigentlich ist es ja garnicht "grau" ... es ist "weiss". Ich mag weiss! Weiss steht für Stil und Eleganz ... und natürlich auch die Unschuld ... und die Reinheit. Vom Ältersein habe ich noch keine Ahnung und somit passt sogar das Sinnbild der Unschuld ... und der Reinheit.
Aber wie geht man nun mit diesem ersten weissen Schamhaar um?
Ausreissen?
Abschneiden?
oder doch Färben?

Ich habe mich für die Variante entschieden, es mit Freude willkommen zu heissen! Es ist nicht selbstverständlich älter und alt zu werden. Altern ist schwierig und ich sehe es auch als eine Art Privileg ... alt zu werden. Vor allem sehe ich die Freuden des Alterns. Die Reife in mir ist aufregend. Die zunehmende Ruhe genieße ich. Eine gewisse Weisheit habe ich mir auch bereits mit meinen 43 Lebensjahren angeeignet. Der Körper und der Geist fühlen sich irgendwie stark an ... eine Art von Stärke wie ich diese bisher noch nie erlebt hatte.
In Würde zu Altern habe ich zu meiner obersten Priorität gemacht. Ich möchte mich selbst im Spiegel ansehen. Ich möchte Vorbild sein. Ich möchte noch sehr viel lernen und erfahren. Ich möchte die Jahre des Alterns als Feuerwerk erleben.

Mein erstes graues Schamhaar entdeckte ich nicht mit Schock oder Verwirrung. Eine tiefe Ruhe machte sich beim Anblick dieses Schamhaares in mir breit.

Sollte ich ihm einen Namen geben!? Ich denke ... Nein ...
Aber die Erinnerung an diesen Moment wird mich wohl den Rest meines Lebens begleiten ...
Es war ein aufregender und sehr schöner Moment.

<3

7th june: <3 Adam Kraft @ ICKY <3

WHAT A PHANTASTIC NIGHT ^^
WHAT AN AWESOME DJ ^^
I can tell you: I DIDN´T EVEN KNOW ONE OF HIS SONGS ^^
Adam Kraft´s music was stunning^^ fresh^^ powerfull^^ superfun^^
I asked someone what kind of music this is and he described it as "cool kids music" ... and that fits perfect to me! Perhaps that music is popular at some places in San Francisco (where Adam comes from), but I can tell you: this style of music is completley unkown in Germany and the Berlin club scene. I felt absolutley privileged to listen and dance for ever to Adam´s music. because of the angle of dj desk and door ... Adam couldn´t see me dancing till I sweat*
when was a teenager ... 25 years ago ... and lived in Austria. it was said, that it needs about 10 !!! years till new music from America reaches Austria. today it´s perhaps a little bit faster, but it still needs yeeeaaaars till new music from America reaches Austria, Germany ... and even Berlin*

perhaps Adam does dj again in Berlin ... then PLS DON´T MISS IT^^ and YES!^^ ICKY is Berlin´s BEST PARTY :* <3

I looooove it, when on wednesday ... I still feel the vibes of T H A T sunday night party* :* <3

THANK YOU* :* <3

7th june: ^^ my mouth ... ^^

actually many people who don´t know me are surprised when they meet me the first time live* because I´m very quite ... and I don´t talk ... or just a little bit. the connection between my brain and my mouth doesn´t work very good ...
this is why I need other ways to express myself ... such as: paintings, photography, some short movies, ... and I love to write. I would say: in real life I´m the complete opposite of how my facebook page looks like ...

but that´s ok* that´s how I am* that´s my life*

7th june: ^^^whooouuuuiiiiiii^^^ 200 selfies reached on my instagram selfie account* :* <3

they go away. I just need to wait. sitting alone on my balcony helps me. I will sit there right now ... and wait ... ... till the monsters in my head go away.
I have everything what I want to have.

21st april: . tortured in Ch*ech*ya.

since some days&nights I try to put myself in the situation of those gays imprisioned in Ch*ech*ya. the more I try it ... the more I realize ... that it´s impossible for me to feel what they must go through right now. BUT I´m sure that some of them wait for help from outside and I´m sure some of them lost every hope for help already ... and prepare themselves to die ... while they get tortured.
THIS TIME it´s not the time for us to stay silent! there is a major protest planed in Berlin and the organizers need some more helping hands. if YOU want to support it, then pls write me your name in a private message ... so I will redirect your name to the organizers. because of safety reasons: pls respect, than I´m able to accept only names of people who I know personal.

THANK YOU

<3

1st may: sometimes ... the only thing matters ... are facts: It´s the minimum I could do: being there for 4 hours and supporting the protest against the killing of gay people in Chechnya. If you want to support it too: till tomorrow 8 p.m. in front of the Chancellery building in Berlin ... you have the possibility to do it! Thank You* <3 and THX glam Frank Sperling for the picture* <3

2nd may: a handfull of people CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE^^* <3 someone spit on us ... others ignored us ... a gay guy from Chechnya came to say how thankful he is ... and at the end the goal got reached: Merkel urges Putin to intervene for gay rights in Chechnya.

24th april: ^^ RICH AND SEXY ^^ ... those ^^ poor but sexy ^^ Berlin days are OVER^^ loooove those cars in front of my balcony* <3

24th april: ^^ created to become a success machine ^^

I mentioned it already a few times, that I went to one of the best private schools in Europe. There I spent the years of my life between age 14 till 19. and for that reason it will be important for my whole life.
The meaning of that school (Tourismusschulen Bad Gleichenberg) was/is: to create success machines in the capitalistic world. (such as: one of my class mates is director of huge Hilton hotel, another one takes a leading position in an oil company, ... <= yes! they have the same age as I have).
EVERYTHING about "money making" has been our daily subject at school. "unimportant" school subjects just didn´t exist there: music, creating art, ... and even philosophy and psychology.
While those IMPORTANT YEARS between 14 and 19 ... I was starving for EVERYTHING to touch my deepest inner emotions:

° I let friends from other schools give me their philosophy and psychology books, which they used at their school subjects.
° In summer vacation (age 15) I traveled by train through Europe and visited the Louvre in Paris, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, Venice, Monaco, ...
° ... and and and
° AND I want to THANK my AWESOME GREAT english teacher ... who used songs such as "Vincent" by Don McLean ... to teach us english ... and wanted to make us realize that there exists MORE outside in the world ... as the school wants to make us believe!
that english teacher´s lessons have been like water drops on my dried out soul ... and I think it was literally the first time that I got in contact with Vincent van Gogh* ... and it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT <3 with the song and van Gogh´s paintings <3

Thank You* :*

28th april: ^^ "poor but sexy" vs "rich and sexy" ^^

"poor but sexy" was THE slogan for Berlin when I came here in 2003. everything about Berlin was "poor but sexy" and I felt the same for myself too. I felt "poor but sexy".
and NOW after years of feeling "poor but sexy" I have just enough of that feeling! it´s time to feel the opposite: "rich and sexy"
the weird thing is: almost nothing has changed in my way of life. it´s just the way I look at it. especially in Berlin you have the choice of seeing the "poor" stuff or the "rich" stuff. the reality is: I life a rich life! and it´s about to see it ... feel it ... and life it NOW!
it´s time now for ^^RICH AND SEXY^^ ... the new glamour for me! ... and I think, that I really deserve it. I really worked for it.

29th april: ^^ rich and sexy ^^ loooove those glam cars in front of my balcony eeeeevery day <3 is this yours too Christa ? :* <3

29th april: ^^ rich and sexy ^^ ... I loooove it when people sitting next to me and talking about trading art worth 80 000 euro* :*
for some seconds I thought about it ... to interrupt them with a sentence such as: "äääöööhmm ...... btw ..... I have also paintings to sell ... for only 70 bucks!" <= I didn´t say it, but thought about their faces ... if I would have said it* =D :* <3

30th april: I was always wondering how it felt to watch Hitler when he was in power.
I think now I know it: right now: watching Trump talking since more than 30 minutes on CNN live for first 100 days in power.
Even the sound of the screaming people in the back ... reminds me to the noices I know from movies ... when people screamed for Hitler.
It´s weired how he mentioned Germany as first country for being his friend today ...

30th april: ^^ rich&sexy ^^ loooove my neighbours <3 since moooore than 13 years* :* <3

6th may: "Klopapierblattzähler" und "Spaßgesellschaft" sind wohl die beiden Worte, welche mich in letzter Zeit am meisten zum Nachdenken gebracht haben: "Klopapierblattzähler", weil ich das wirklich bin. Ich zähle aaaaallllles akribisch genau mit und nach. Beinahe übertrieben wie beim Klopapierblattzählen ...
und "Spaßgesellschaft" weil dieses Wort den absoluten Zeitgeist unserer Gesellschaft und besonders dieser in Berlin, widerspiegelt. Alles was diese "Spaßgesellschaft" bedient, zählt und wird honoriert. Dass ich letztendlich mit meinen Performances, Malerei, usw. auch genau diesem Teil dieser "Spaßgesellschaft" angehöre, hat mich ordentlich zum Nachdenken gebracht ...

Habt ihr bitte auch solch bedeutende Worte für euch?

<3

6th may: Patrick´s inner monologues: the pain in my knees became too much.

I knew it from the very beginning, when I started with my first paintings in oil on canvas in 2011. I used to create them in the same position as I created drawings as kid. my mother worked as tailor at home and during the age 3 till 8 ... I sat on the floor next to her and created drawings of pirate ships, flowers, animals, ...

in the past years I created almost 600 paintings in oil on canvas in that position. on my knees on the floor. I´m 43 years old now and my body talks to me. I made my knees suffer too much in the past years. the pain became too much in the past weeks. because of that reason I have to change my painting position immediatly. I will start to work on a table and use more often my easel. I´m sure that a new position will make my paintings look different, but I think that´s ok, because I learned a lot of creating paintings in the past years.

^^ DAMN ^^ I had no idea about it, how painful it is, when knees start to hurt ...

7th may: art events in Berlin?

pls does anyone has any idea about art events in near future?
I have no idea at all, but would really like to go to some ...
artfairs, openings, UdK stuff, ...

8th may: ^^ the bad side of Patrick Bartsch ^^

pls what is what you don´t like about Patrick Bartsch?
"renovation of life" means more to me, than to renovate a flat and a body ... it means also to renovate the character* <3
nobody likes 100 percent of another person. there are always 10 or 20 or 40 or even 70 percent ... which someone doesn´t like at another person. <= and today I´m interessted in it! pls write it in the comments below and help me to make a "better" Patrick Bartsch out of me* THANK YOU <3

... and tomorrow it will be about ^^ the good side of Patrick Bartsch ^^, because I´m also interessted in that ... what you like about me.

<3 RENOVATION TOTAL <3

8th may: ^^ die schlechte Seite des Patrick Bartsch ^^

was könnt ihr garnicht an Patrick Bartsch ausstehen?
"Renovierung des Lebens" bedeutet für mich mehr ... als nur die Wohnung und den Körper zu renovieren. Es geht mir auch um eine Renovierung meines Characters* <3
Niemand mag 100 Prozent an einem anderen Menschen. Es gibt immer 10 oder 20 oder 40 oder gar 70 Prozent welche man an einem anderen Menschen nicht leiden kann. <= und genau daran bin ich heute interessiert. Bitte schreibt dies in die Kommentare und helft mir einen "besseren" Patrick Bartsch aus mir zu machen* DANKE SEHR <3

... und morgen geht es um ^^ die gute Seite des Patrick Bartsch ^^, denn dies interessiert mich ebenso ... was ihr gut an mir findet.

<3 RENOVIERUNG TOTAL <3

9th may: my new sitting position feels weird* first time sitting on a chair ... instead of kneeing on the floor. but I´m sure that this position is much healthier for my body ... <3

16th may: ^^ Die Dotterblume ^^

Das Gänseblümchen, die Seerose, die Gerbera, die Callas oder doch die Silberdistel?
Jede und Jeder hat wohl seine Lieblingsblume ... wie man wohl auch seine Lieblingsfarbe hat. Aber welche sollte es nun wirklich sein? Für welche würde man sich entscheiden, wenn man nur eine einzige auf eine "einsame Insel" mitnehmen könnte!?
Marlene Dietrich hätte sich für die Hängegeranie entschieden. Marilyn Monroe für die Rose ... Dame Edna für die Gladiole ... Madonna für die Gardenie.
Meine Großmutter liebte die Strelitzia über alles. ... aber für welche sollte ich mich entscheiden!?
Viele Jahre dachte ich immer wieder mal über diese ... doch sehr bedeutende ... Frage nach ... und fand immer wieder verschiedene oder garkeine Antworten darauf.
Jedoch gibt es die eine Blume welche mich seit meiner frühesten Kindheit immer wieder verzauberte. Im tiefsten Schwarzwald aufgewachsen entdeckte ich sie immer wieder ... oft an dunklen ... wässrigen ... beinahe moorigen Plätzen im Wald und neben Wiesen. Sie leuchtete wie eine kleine Sonne an diesen Plätzen. Das starke, kräftige Gelb hatte eine magische Anziehungskraft auf viele Tiere und ebenso auf mich. Wenn sie geschlossen war, bildete sie diese wunderschöne, kugelförmige Blütenform ... und wenn sie sich öffnete erstrahlte eine kleine Wunderwelt. Eine sich öffnende Kugel ... gehörte wohl zu den zaubervollsten Dingen in meiner Kindheit. Ich pflückte diese Blume nie ... wußte ich doch, daß sie es nicht lange überleben würde ... entrissen aus ihrem Revier. Ich liebte sie ... wenn ich sie in freier Natur sah. Sie zauberte Freude in mein Gesicht und in mein Herz ... und ^^ Die Dotterblume ^^ ist es wohl, welche auf ewig meine Lieblingsblume sein wird.

<3

16th may: to the history of art .... a NEW name ... needs to be added ^^* 21st century style :* <3

17th may: "... if I want to be part of the B I G art world ... I need to be interessted in the B I G art world" ^^ :* <3 today ... for the first time ... I bought the MONOPOL art magazine ... and YES! 1100 folder "Patrick Bartsch Maler" german version are done too* :* <3 caaaaan´t wait to say "hello!" to the B I G art world* <3

17th may: Frage: "Patrick, warum bist du eigentlich so ein Großmaul?"
Antwort: "Erstens kann ich wunderbar selbst über meine Großmaulkommentare und mich selbst lachen =D . ... und zweitens: motiviert mich mein Großmaul auch tatsächlich ... mehr und härter zu arbeiten, weil ich es im Grunde genommen ja auch nicht nur bei der Großmäuligkeit belassen will."

:* <3

17th may: *Mein erstes Mal*

es wurde höchste Zeit, daß ich mir zum ersten Mal das ´Monopol Magazin für Kunst und Leben´ gekauft habe und es mir durchgeblättert und teilweise gelesen habe.
Mein erster Eindruck: Schlägt man die Mai 2017 Ausgabe auf erscheint doppelseitig eine Werbung von SAINT LAURENT. Auf den folgenden beiden Seiten geht es mit einer CHANEL Werbung weiter. Was hätte ich sonst erwartet? Eine Werbung von "Die Tafel"? Vielleicht ja. Doch es handelt sich bei dem Monopol Magazin offensichtlich um ein Hochglanzmagazin, welches nicht weit einer Vogue und Harper´s Bazar angelegt ist.
Die Chefredakteurin Elke Buhr erwartet mich mit ihrem Grußwort auf der nächsten Seite. Eine Frau auf dem Cover, eine Frau als Chefredakteurin und gaaaaanz viel mehr Frauen und Weiblichkeit dominieren diese Ausgabe. Ob mir dieses "dominieren" lediglich so vorkommt oder der Tatsache entspricht, sei dahin gestellt. Ich freue mich! :) Frauen in der Kunst finde ich als äusserst wichtig und bekommen von mir jegliche Unterstützung!
Weiters zu finden sind auf mehreren Seiten Werbung für Auktionen: bei Grisebach, Christie´s, ... dabei wird Kunst angeboten wie: Beckmann für 800 000 - 1 200 000, Helnwein für 70 000 - 90 000, Francis Bacon für 50 000 000 - 70 000 000, ...
In diesem Magazin geht es offensichtlich um gaaaanz viel Geld. Viel Geld für Kunst und alles was irgendwie damit zusammenhängt.
Anne Imhof wird im Portrait vorgestellt, ist sie doch Teil der Venedig-Biennale. Es tut gut einen mehrseitigen Artikel vorzufinden in welchem es um ´eine´ Künstlerin und ihre Arbeit geht. Dies entwickelt eine Art der persönlichen Verbindung in mir.
Ich blättere weiter das Monopol Magazin durch. Finde erwartungsvoll den Kunstkalender mit Ausstellungsterminen Deutschlandweit und hoffe insgeheim irgendwann auf eine Boulvardmäßige who-is-who Seite zu treffen. Auf der vorletzten Seite ist es dann soweit: Die klassische Gesichts- und Namensfotoseite: diesmal mit "Monopol zu Gast auf der Art Basel/Hongkong". Dass ich hier kein einziges Gesicht und keinen einzigen Namen kenne, freut mich, da ich es auch erwarte seeeehr viel Neues kennenzulernen, wenn ich mich in der kommenden Zeit in die Kunstwelt hineinbewege.
Sehr gut finde ich das "SPECIAL ISSUE: Venice Biennale". Es ermöglicht mir einen gewissen Eindruck von den Pavillons zu erlangen. ... und dann passiert es doch: Ich erkenne einen Namen: Boris Pofalla beschreibt mehrere Pavillons. Ich finde seinen Schreibstil großartig und freue mich* :)

Letztendlich stelle ich mir die Frage ob ich wirklich Teil "dieser" Kunstwelt werden möchte. "Ja!" ist meine Antwort ohne zu zögern. Ob ich mit meinen Gemälden in Öl auf Leinwand für 70 Euro und meiner turbulenten Geschichte als Künstler in Berlin, in diese Kunstwelt des Monopols dazu passe, das wird sich zeigen ... Mein Wille und mein Engagement wird auf jeden Fall vorhanden sein.

Auf eine gute Zusammenarbeit! <3

18th may: dear diary* today I realized that it was the first time today that I painted without t-shirt. never before I did it that way. I think this reflects how much free I feel after months of renovating my life. it needed a while to get used to my "new" life, but it looks like that it does good to me. I feel very free right now ... and I think this will be possible to see in my new paintings too. I feel very good at the moment* <3

19th may: today I feel veeeeery similar :* <3 "... I was struck with so much excitement and gratitude for my love of art. I want to share that experience with as many people as possible.” says Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa ^^*

19th may: ^^ verstörend ^^

in den vergangenen Wochen geisterte immer wieder dieser Begriff "verstörend" durch meine Gedanken, wenn ich mir meine Gemälde betrachtete.
Anfangs fand ich diesen Begriff etwas "störend", aber immer mehr freunde ich mich sehr damit an. "Verstörend" hat in der Geschichte der Malerei einen besonderen Stellenwert: Als die Füße von Jesus zum ersten Mal von Sand beschmutzt gemalt wurden, galt dies als "verstörend". van Gogh´s und Picasso´s Gemälde und die viieeeeeler anderer Maler ... galten anfangs als "verstörend". Nitsch´s Schüttbilder galten als "verstörend", ...
Besonders bei meiner Serie "100 Portraits in Öl auf Leinwand Patrick Bartsch Stil" ... wirken einige Portraits als "verstörend".
Manche erinnern an Bilder aus Spiegelkabinetts ... andere wirken wie von Bildern alter Fernseher, wenn das Fernsehbild "flackerte" ... wiederum andere ähneln Figuren, welche wie aus Kerzenwachs gemacht, zu zerschmeltzen beginnen ...
Es ist wohl das Veränderliche ... das Endliche ... dem Aussetzen der Zeit Vergängliche ... welches in meinen Portraits dargestellt wird ... auf eine Art und Weise wie sie vielleicht neu ist ... und dadurch manchesmal ^^ verstörend ^^ wirkt.

20th may: ^^ WHOOOUUUUUIIIIIIII ^^ one of my favorite wonderful models for paintings of the past years became *MISTER GAY BERLIN* <3 CONGRATULATIONS Micha Alter <3 <3 <3

20th may: (BMW M1) ^^rich&sexy^^ OMMMMFFFGGG T H I S was THE CAR OF MY DREAMS :* <3 when I was a teenager* I had a huuuuugggeee poster of that car next to my bed when I lived at the college during the week. I was even at the presentation of that car ... this is why I had such a huuuugggeee poster of it. LOOOOVE to see that car today in front of my balcony* :* <3 <3 <3

21st may: ^^ 10 bucks for each painting which I created before 2016. <= I think this is a GREAT idea* :* <3
Queer people and their friends ... are my family and they are part of my life ... literally in good&bad times.
on 14th and 15th july there will be the lesbian-gay-streetparty in Berlin with about 600 000 guests and I will be there again with my ^^ Patrick Bartsch art action booth ^^ <3
I created about 600 paintings in oil on canvas so far (since 2011) and about 200 are sold. <= I think this is veeeery good for an autodidakt. so about 400 are left and my studio is full. those paintings are part of my past and after my ^^ total renovation of life ^^ ... I feel to go new ways ... with NEW paintings.

alternatives would be: to rent a storage <= but I don´t want to waste my money for such things.
or to stop to paint <= this I will never do.
or to give them away for free on the street <= OH! I thought about it already.

I said always, that I create art and paintings for eeeeeveryone. "everyone" means also for people with little money.
If you want to get one of my 10-bucks-paintings ... pls plan to visit me soooon at my booth at the lesbian-gay-streetparty Berlin* <3

and YES! I do it also because I want to give "something" back to my woooonderful queer community <3 ... which one is aaaaalways around me* :* <3

23rd may: dear arab countries ...

... my father has an cardiac pacemaker and the clinical heart center in Munich takes care about him and they do it veeeery good. do they belong to the best medical centers in the world for heart problems.
he told me, that a whole part of the heart center in Munich is reserved for people from arab countries. many signs in the heart center are written in arab writing.
here my question to the arab world: WHY you don´t investe your billions of oil money in eductation!? universities!? ... and YES! to get best qualified people you need to give them FREEDOM! Freedom to study! Freedom to life! for EVERYONE: women, men, ... and YES! queer people too! <= only with freedom you get people to be passionate for their profession! and YES! professions such as cardiac surgeons!
BUILT UP YOUR OWN CARDIAC CENTERS! and don´t be infamous/famous for using your oil money for Disney World style fun cities in the desert, while at the same time suppressing 99 percent of the people who life in your countries.

23rd may: Patrick Bartsch´s 50 cent to the first public lashing of a 20 and 24 years old gay man in Indonesia:

gays belong to the most powerful and richest groups on the planet. many times they have no children and have all their life to spend it on one life task. this is why they become that much successful and for that reason USEFUL for every society! By suppressing gay people ... haunting them ... isolating them ... beating and killing them ... a society faces a huge loss in their progress to grow in every part.
smart leaders know about that fact and dumb leaders ignore that fact.
what the regime in Indonesia sends out as message to gay people is wrong in every way.
from my opinion it needs a worldwide masterplan about how to safe haunted gay men from every part in the world and it shouldn´t matter how rich or poor they are. that a country such Germany gives asylum to gay people is not enough: there needs to be a possibilty to get them out of their countries. Further more EVERY support for gay haunting countries needs to be stopped immediately.
it´s time for a new self-awareness and
it´s time to get ourselves out of that "being a victim corner" and
IT´S TIME TO SHOW THE WORLD HOW MUCH POWERFUL GAY PEOPLE REALLY ARE!

23rd may: R.I.P. Roger Moore

actually I met him twice. the first time was at the film shooting for "Boat Trip". the movie was a complete flop. but I´m sure the movie is funny. it´s with a loooot of gay stuff in it and Cuba Godding Jr. is part of the movie too. when I lived in Cologne ... sometimes I worked as extra for movies. I remember that one scene when about one hundred extras where in a big room. When Roger Moore entered the room it was about it that eeeeverybody could feel it ... could feel him. He had those very special vibes reaching everybody. (actually you can see me in that clip in the comments. with the blue shirt at the beginning)
The second time I saw him at the funeral of Helmut Newton in Berlin.
Roger Moore was a very special human ... he represented that style ... that class which I love*
Thank You Roger Moore <3

23rd may: OMG JUST DISCOVERED MYSELF IN A MOVIE SCENE WITH ROGER MOORE <3 at the scene in the comments. the guy with the blue shirt at the first seconds* that´s me :)

some years ago I did extra for several movies, but somehow never watched them by myself. and just right now I found that scene with Roger Moore for Boat Trip and discovered myself* OMG Roger Moore was phantastic in that movie shooting ... and everyone else such as Cuba Gooding Jr. too*

R.I.P. Roger Moore <3

23rd may: 44.21 min Film über Sonnenallee, Hermannplatz, ... uuuund irgendwie gehöre ich ja wohl auch mit dazu* ... zumindest seit über 8 Jahren jeden Sonntag Nachts im Ficken3000 als "Türmann" :* <3 ... und JA! der große glamouröse RollsRoyce welcher vor 7 Jahren, zu Neuköllns ´wilden´ Zeiten, regelmässig am Hermannplatz parkte, gehörte natürlich einem unserer Partygäste* :* <3

 

 

old art works 2017
filed under mix

 

while doing the renovation I found some old artworks which I created maaaaany years ago:

^^^ my fashion jewellery ^^^ I made hundreds of them ... FIMO brooches & hand painted mask brooches. I created them in the age 14 till 17. as I mentioned already: I have been on one of the best private schools in Europe. Almost all of those kids there came from rich families. but not me. I´m the son of a tailor and a car mechanic. my whole family needed all the money to pay the school fee, but had no money left to give me pocket money. during the week I lived in the college of the school and on weekend I created that fashion jewellery. YES! while my schoolfellows had time to relax on weekend ... I was working. Every weekend ... the whole day ... till late at saturday nights. I made hundreds of them. my mother sold them during the week and together we made a volume of sales more than 5000 euro. <= that was a lot of money for a kid ... about 27 years ago. on the pic you see the last ones I kept till today ... as memory ...

^^WHOOUUUIIII^^ just found some drawings which I did in 2002 ... when I lived in Cologne and planed to become a tattoo artist. I had already the full equipment ... and the reason why I didn´t start to work <= this will be written in my book "the story of Master Patrick". when I did those drawings as an exercise ... I signed them with "TrickAp" ... an hiphop version of the name "Patrick" ...

before and after ... the renovation

THIS renovation was very important to me ... and it needed about six weeks.

I feel very good in my new styled home <3


 

 

mini me 2017
filed under mix

 

those pictures I posted haven´t been made by my mother or father. Brigitte ... a friend of our family ... loved me a lot ... travelled with me around ... and took those pictures.
my mother was unable to cope (überfordert) with the fact that her child was born gay ... she ignored it and refused to see every sign of it ... especially when strangers told her, that they think, that I might be gay. having me as gay son has been a nightmare for my mother. the more important is it for myself to accept myself ... the way I was born. and watching those "Patrick Bartsch mini me" photos helps me ...


with my grandma <3

17th feb. ROMY HAAG LIVE "BLIND DATES" at Die Wühlmäuse

events such as this one are the reason why I moved to Berlin <3

What an AMAAAAZING PHANTASTIC night <3

wonderful Frank Wilde told me that Romy loves white flowers* ... and it has an honor to me to organize that huge bouquet of white flowers and hand over to Romy <3 after that fabulous show* :* <3

***********************

3rd march: *Haus am Waldsee*

today it happened: my first time as guest at an opening in legendary Berlin art space *Haus am Waldsee*.
I heard a lot of stories about it since 2003 ... since I live in Berlin. especially during the deep friendship with Salomé. He told me about the exhibition "Heftige Malerei" in the year 1980 ... which brought the international breakthrough for the artist group "Junge Wilde".
the place *Haus am Waldsee* became very special in my imagination and I didn´t want to destroy those with a "fast" visit. I was waiting for the "right" moment: One week ago I met Andrej Dubravsky and for the first time Norbert Bisky. I appreciate both artists and their phantastic work.
Today was the opening of "VERMISST DER TURM DER BLAUEN PFERDE VON FRANZ MARC". A show about a painting which got missed during the German Nazi regime. several artists present works related to that missing painting. Norbert Bisky has been one of those artists and his work has been my favorite one: a painting which got burned and destroyed <= this one stood for all those thousands of paintings which got destroyed during World War II.
my first time in "Haus am Waldsee" has been veeeery special ... and it was worth it to wait for it almost 14 years! BIIIIG THANK YOU to wonderful young artist David Garbo who took me there today* love you :* <3

... and YES! AWESOME show! worth it to experience! <3

27th march: ^^ BLAAAACK FOREST CAKE ^^ (Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte)

my heart belongs to that cake <3 in the black forest I was born <3 in the black forest I grew up <3 my own family (uncle, great aunt, even my father as teenager) produced original black forest cakes in my home village Schluchsee in the deepest black forest <3

since almost four years I invite to the Open Studio here and eeevery week I bake some cake ... but never a black forest cake ... because I wanted to keep my first homemade black forest cake for a veeeeery special Open Studio ... and this is going to happen this wednesday ... when the first day of a new life offically starts for me <3

eeeeveryone is invited to join that Open Studio this wednesday ... and eat some oooooriginal black forest cake with me =P :* <3 =P <3

those six weeks of renovation made a difference ... for sure <3

see you <3

27th march: in 1993 it happend when I created for the first time paintings on canvas ... with acrylic. I worked for one summer in Bad Wiessee am Tegernsee in Bavaria. I got bored when I didn´t have to work and went for one day to Munich. OOOH I remember how excited I have been when ... for the first time ... I went in a shop to buy empty canvases. I bought five of them and some acrylic colors. the first painting shows a Svenskt Snus box (that sort of tobacco, which you put under your lips). A friend of mine of the village in the deepest black forest where I come from. ... he was a ski jumper and told me that before he does his jump ... he puts some Svenskt Snus tobacco under his lips. I was phascinated by his story and painted a Svensk Snus box and wrote "Flying High" on it. I think ... already in that summer ... I felt that deep wish inside of me ... that one day I want to buy mooooore canvases ... but it should need 18 more years ... till I let it happen ...

28th march: tomorrow <3 eeeveryone is invited <3 ... if the world should remember something about me, then it should be "never to give up" ... and that it´s "never too late to start something new" ... and tomorrow I will celebrate the first day of a new chapter in my life ... with mmmyyyuummmmyyyy black forest cake and yoooouuuUUUUUUUUU AAAAAALLLLLL :*

28th march: ^^ WORK ^^

the reason why I´m thaaaaat much excited about the new chapter of my life ... which officially starts for me tomorrow ... is: WORK ... I face months ... perhaps years of hard work ... a lot of work. the thing is: <3 I MAY WORK <3 <= that´s a big difference to "I have to work".
I think it´s one of the highest goals someone can reach ... to find work, which someone loves to do.
in my case: the realization of that plan to create hundreds of paintings in oil on canvas ... which do exist in my head&heart already ... means first of all: WORK ... work for years
and I´m veeeeery excited that I may do that work

28th march: the oracle of Berlin´s advice number 178:

when you do a private invitation or private party, then be sure, that as much as possible is prepared already the day before. give yourself the feeling, that you will be "guest" at your own invitation/party ... then eeeevery invitation/party is going to be good*

for example: right now I´m done with the renovation 99 percent and the flat/studio is cleaned and prepared 99 percent. tomorrow I will just take care of my body, my hair style, the cloths I´m wearing and at 3 p.m. I will join an invitation of Patrick Bartsch ... will drink some coffee and eat some original black forest cake ... and I´m sure that cake will taste good, because Patrick was born in the black forest.

<= that feeling needs some training ... and the more often you do it, the more you will be able to enjoy it. <3 ... and I could even go out tonite and be completly relaxed about the Open Studio Special invitation for tomorrow. :* <3

(and " the oracle of Berlin" is a creation of Brian. he loved to create names for his friends* <3 )

29th march: today 3 p.m - 9 p.m. in Kleiststr. 37a <3 for sure the moooost ORIGINAL BLACK FOREST CAKE you can get today in Berlin <3 Even I used an TOOOOP SECRET advice ... my black forest family told me to do, when I bake that cake* =P <3 see you aaaalll later :* <3 =P <3

29th march: purple ... emperor yellow ... ivory ... my new life starts today <3

31st march: can you see it ... that even I created an OWN WORKOUT CORNER in my brandnew renovated flat* <3 ... and it feels veeeery goooood to do workout here <3 ... in the 25th week now* :*

31st march: aaaand THIS is my next plan ... for my NEW LIFE: getting a car again* <3

this is the planed way: when I meet my dad in july ... I will ask him to give me some driving lessons. as car mechanic and a whole life without any accident ... he should be able to teach it to me again. I got my driver licence when I was 19 years old, but stopped driving when I had an car accident ... where I jumped with my car down a valley. but I think I should start to drive again. also when I plan to have exhibitions somewhere ... that I´m able to bring paintings there ...

B I G THANK YOU Jason <3 for inspiring me again*

1st april: <3 whhoouuuiiii <3 just finished* my veeery own version of "What Is Art?" painting in oil on canvas: AT THE MOMENT SEEING THE BEST IN OTHERS AND IN ONESELF AND TRANSLATING THESE INSIGHTS INTO SOMETHING PERCEPTIBLE THAT´S ART* :* <3 BIG THANK YOU to Jason for translating my original german version into this proper english one*

2nd april: my veeery own version of "What Is Art?" painting in oil on canvas: AT THE MOMENT SEEING THE BEST IN OTHERS AND IN ONESELF AND TRANSLATING THESE INSIGHTS INTO SOMETHING PERCEPTIBLE THAT´S ART* :*

2nd april: ^^* I <3 BERLIN *^^

... and sometimes this feeling overcomes me again ... which I had on the first day ... when I arrived in Berlin ... about 14 years ago ... <3

... this feeling of being free ... curious about discovering a brandnew world ... this feeling of pure love for everyone and everything <3

... to live in Berlin is not more and not less: a dream become true to me <3

... it feels good to get reminded of that fact ... and to feel it again ... from time to time <3

I <3 BERLIN

2nd april: me, myself & I ... self-portrait in oil on canvas* 2nd april 2017*

2nd april: Der politische Ausdruck Merkels gegenüber queeren Mitmenschen ... diese als "andersartig" politisch&gesellschaftlich darzustellen ... rechtfertig für einige ... Gewalt ... in jeglicher Form ... gegenüber queeren Mitmenschen auszuüben. <= genau deshalb bin ich GEGEN MERKEL als Politikerin!

2nd april: Im Klartext: Es war absolut richtig 1 Million Flüchtlingsmenschen in Deutschland aufzunehmen. Jedoch dass die BLÖ*E KU* MERKEL jetzt diesen Flüchtlingsmenschen als eine der ersten Lektionen klarmacht, daß Queere Menschen AUCH IN DEUTSCHLAND "anders" sind und somit NICHT in das "normale Deutsche Gesellschaftsbild" passen ... kann (eventuell schon sehr bald) böse Auswirkungen auf uns queere Menschen haben ...

Entweder hat die Merkel nur Stroh im Kopf oder die macht das absichtlich *gggrmmmmmlllll*

2nd april: short info for "Insiders": OMG SHE IS HEEERE AGAIN* just saw her: <3 ISA <3 ... and she looks stuuuuunnnnning great* I´m aaalways happy when I see her* I LOOOOVE ISA <3 :* <3

pls let me ask someone who was sitting at the door there even BEFORE I did it: " Nathan Duc Koestlin <3 isn´t every word true which I wrote above? ... and Thank You for the bottle Veuve Clicquot champagne last night for all of us. it was veeery delicious to put a glas of champagne on top of the emotions which happened last night."
(yes! I´m still sober since seven months. I think a glas of champagne for the perfect moment ... is just ok*)

responsible for those nights is fabulous Jared Abbott <3 Thank You for being the promoter and creating those stunning great sunday nights every week^^*
and of course Thank You to Charlie <3 and Thorsten <3 for being lovely at the bar and last but not least: glitzy Frank <3 the owner of the legendary Club Ficken3000^^*

3rd april: <3 PEACE <3

btw: THERE I S A SOLUTION how the people of the whole world are able to live together IN PEACE <3

I realized it several years ago when I worked for ANA (All Nippon Airways. the Grand Hotel Vienna did belong to ANA when I was working there.). We got teached into the japanese mentality. they explained us why Japanese people act as they do it and we should act the same way how it got teached to us, when we meet Japanese people in the hotel.
Japan consists of several Islands. for several hundreds of years it has been almost impossible to leave those Islands. for that reason those people living there needed to find ways how to live together without killing eachother non-stop. <= this is the explanation in short.

today the whole world became a place which is almost impossible to leave. NOW the people of the whole world need to find ways HOW to live together without killing eachother non-stop.

this is why I mean, that the people of the world should get closer to Japan and listen to Japanese people. we can learn a loooot from them.

... and *surprise* *surprise* even gay people live in Japan without getting beaten up and/or murdered!

... but I think ... the reality is: that also the world of today will need several hundereds of years to learn how to live together in peace ... as Japan needed to learn it that much long.

3rd april: today I created a "simple" painting in oil on canvas. "simple" because PEACE I S SIMPLE! it´s a decision. Peace is something which needs just to be done.

4th april: im Fahrradshop haben sie gesagt ... mein Fahrrad ist ne HALBE GURKE! =D =D =D
OH! hab ich noch garnicht erwähnt, daß in meinem "Neuen Leben" auch ein Fahrrad zum Fahrradfahren vorkommt* :* <3
... und im Fahrradshop haben sie meine Halbe Gurke jetzt fahrtauglich gemacht* *freu* :) ... der Frühling kann jetzt kommen* :* <3

5th april: OMG 5 more pics ... and I´ve reached 150 SELFIES on instagram* :* <3 ... just posted there an "Ireallywantit Weightgainer" pic* OMFG I REALLY WANT MUUUUUSCLES :* <3

5th april: mein Kommentar zu "zunehmender Gewalt im Nollendorfkiez in Schöneberg"

also ich möchte es einfach mal loswerden: bei der "zunehmenden Gewalt" handelt es sich hauptsächlich um "Taschendiebstahl". Dies ist ein kompliziertes Handwerk, welches in bestimmten Regionen Menschen von Kleinkind an beigebracht wird. Diese Taschendiebe gibt es bereits seit ich hier wohne (seit 2004). Eine Zunahme kommt dadurch zustande, daß diese "Partygegend" immer beliebter wurde und somit auch immer mehr Partygäste ausser Kontrolle (Alkohol- Dr*geneinfluß) unterwegs sind. Also somit "leichte Beute" sind. Geübte Taschendiebe suchen sich gezielt ihre Opfer aus. Ungeübte MöchtegernTaschendiebe helfen oftmals mit Gewalt nach und es kommt auch vor, daß mal ein Messer zur Unterstützung eingesetzt wird um die anfixierte Beute zu bekommen.
Schwule gibt es überall: bei den Bankern, bei den Feuerwehrmännern, ... und natürlich AUCH bei den professionellen Taschendieben.
Natürlich mag es vorgekommen sein, daß homophob motivierte Übergriffe hier vorgekommen sind, ABER I C H habe hier noch nie eine homophob motivierte Tat beobachtet. ... und alle welche mich besser kennen, wissen, daß ich die Straßen hier 24 Stunden 365 Tage im Jahr im Blick habe.
Und was ich noch überhaupt nie beobachten konnte ist, daß neu in Berlin ankommende Flüchtlinge hier auf "Beutezug" unterwegs waren. Also die Verbindung: "Flüchtlinge und steigende Kriminalität" scheint mir hier vollkommen absurd.

Als Tip wie man sich schützen kann: wenn man hier unterwegs sein möchte und es zeichnet sich ab, daß man selbst durch zu viel Party ausser Kontrolle kommt, ... dann einfach nur soviel Geld mitnehmen wie man benötigt und dieses (wie es alle Tramper tun) in die Socken stecken. ... und K E I N PORTEMONAIE mitnehmen! Handies kann man immer an allen Theken in Lokalen abgeben und auf der Straße sollte man es in gut zu schließende Taschen geben. Weiters auf der Straße nicht ansprechen lassen ... nicht anfassen lassen ... und es kann auch nicht schaden auch mal die Straßenseite zu wechseln.

also mein Resumée:
ansteigende Gewalt: Ja!
homophob motiviert: Nein!
durch Flüchtlinge: großes NEIN!

Viel Spaß im Nollendorfkiez* :* <3

5th april: ^^ FRANKFURTER KRANZ ^^ OMG* do you have aaaaany idea about THAT cake* <3 just finished* YES! I´m still in the renovation DONE celebration mood* :* <3 Patrick Bartsch´s Open Studio Wednesdays is open now* <3

6th april: ^^^ HAPPY FIBO 2017 Cologne to eeeeeeveryone <3 N E X T YEAR I plan to be there tooooo :* <3 Patrick Bartsch paintings oil on canvas 24 x 30 (sold)

6th april: R.I.P. Jon John <3 of course I will paint you ... from pictures I took ... when I saw you the first time at your show in RISEgallery ... in ... I don´t know ... 2006 ... 2007. it was one of the best .. perhaps THE BEST show I ever saw in Berlin* . I loved it to be in contact with you sometimes in the past years. I loved it too to meet you again some months ago at an opening in Werkstattgalerie ... we even talked with the gallerist Pascual Jordan ... you doing a show there* ... Now you do your shows somewhere else in the universe <3 ... and I´m sure they are FIERCE ^^ <3 love you Jon* <3 forever :* <3 see you in some years* <3

8th april: "spinach green" "antifa red" "gold but real gold" "olympia blue" "royal blue" "colorful" "poison green" ... <= just to name a few answers to the question "what is your favorite color?" ... ... finally continued to work on "100 portraits in oil on canvas Patrick Bartsch style" ... sorry for that loooong break, while doing the renovation of my flat/studio ... ... but NOW it contiues ... just made 13 new backgrounds from your favorite colors* OMG I LOOOOVE TO WORK WITH YOU AAAAAALLLL <3 on that serie* <3 ... and my 150th picture on instagram shows a selfie in front of those new backgrounds ... which I created just right now* :* <3 love you <3

8th april: ^^ 2013 vs 2017 ^^ I love to see how the size of my paintings is growing* <3

11th april: ^^^* refugees in Berlin *^^^

refugees in Berlin become more and more part of my every day´s life. yesterday I went to a hair stylist. I go there every some months and it´s always a surprise who takes care of my hair. yesterday a young man washed my hair ... then he took me to the chair to take a seat. I asked him "do you cut my hair too?". while asking him, those people next to my right and left side looked kind of shocked into my direction, perhaps expecting that I would say something like, that I don´t want him to cut my hair. but my asking had another reason ... I continued "I would like to have my hair cut that much short as your hair is." he liked that question and looked into the mirror to check his own haircut again. he cut my hair in a perfect and accurate way ... how it happened very rare before. while cutting my hair he told me, that today it´s his first day here doing an internship, before he cut hair for three years in his home country. I didn´t ask which country, because I didn´t want to focus the conversation on something which could probably hurt him. we talked just a little bit and focused on the haircut. he made it amazing and his fingers had a magic move somehow.

all my experciences with refugees in Berlin have been great. I love those countries where many refugees come from. the syrian based fairytale "Ali Baba and the 40 raiders" has been one of my favorite fairytales when I was a child. I love their mentality and I´m happy that some refugees choose Berlin as their new home. <3

11th april: ^^ Patrick Bartsch exhibitions ^^

many times I get asked about exhibitions.

my answer: because of a looot of work: I have no time to look for exhibitions by myself. I depend on it, that I get invited to do an exhibition or being part of a group show. but almost no one asks and/or invites me ... so far.

the weekly Open Studio is for me the sort of exhibition which I offer every wednesday ... and eeeeveryone is invited to come here ... see latest paintings in oil on canvas ... and eat some fresh homemade cake with me. tomorrow with original Linzer Tarte =P <3

see you soon* <3

11th april: ^^ Never Give Up ^^ ... workout at home ... 27th week*

12th april: living in my new renovated flat/studio gives me a veeeery similar feeling as being in the Cartier shop of Monte Carlo ^^* :* <3

12th april: ^^ I´m not a designer ^^

a lot of art which I see today (... for example in a video about Art Basel Hong Kong) reminds me of DESIGN. great ideas for great designed art works. ... and I´m sure there is ... somewhere ... a meaning behind every art work.

for me it´s very important to point out: that I´m not doing that form of design art. ... okokok some of my paintings may look like "design", but they reflect a freedom (existing in Berlin) ... which I use in an ultimative way. but much more I see myself as a chronologist of a certain period of time ... of a certain place: Berlin from 2003 till today. <= many of my paintings in oil on canvas show exactly moments of those years in Berlin ... from the visit of the Queen ... to party life ... to the current serie 100 portraits of people in Berlin.

of course it´s also important for me that my paintings look "good" somehow ... but much more important is for me: to catch those feelings of Berlin and bring them on canvas ... for the world to remind those glamorous years of that glamorous city.

I´m not a designer.

14th april: ... and it´s still eeeeevery artist´s utlimative BIGGEST DREAM:

to have his own B I G SUCCESSFUL SHOW in .... IN:

<3 NEW YORK <3

see you in some years BIG APPLE :* <3

15th april: I don´t use "black" in my paintings, but it happened 8 times so far, that I created paintings just out of "black" ... such as this one ... Patrick Bartsch paintings oil on canvas 24 x 30 (sold)

15th april: ^^* ... paintings and songs ... *^^

both are reaching the soul in an intense way ... and are that much different at the same time. the one reaches you through the ears and the other one through the eyes. the moment you hear the notes of a song ... that much fast those sounds don´t exist anymore. when you look at a painting ... you can look at it forever ... and it´s possible to discover always something new ... such as in a song. paintings and songs reach every part of someone´s soul ... and are that much different at the same time.

I love to look at a painting and listen to songs at the same time.

today I look at one of my "black" paintings ... while I listen to songs of David Bowie. ... and it´s intense*

<3

17th april: and here my 50 cents to Turkey: almost eeevery dictator ruled country (incl. Germany) ended up in some kind of war ... with almost complete destruction ... and hundreds of thousands ... sometimes millions of dead people. <= this is perhaps Turkeys future too ...

I have no idea what Erdogan fans are celebrating about! do they want to have their country destroyed? and members of their own families killed in war?

is it THAT what they mean with "to love their own country"?

 

 

 

Brian is part of my life 10th february 2017
filed under mix

 

<3 ... he is part of my life ... and ... aaaalways will be ... <3

I needed that tattoo of Brian <3

I needed it because this is a visible sign, that a part of my life has ended. it ended in a very tragic way ... with Brian´s death.

I remember the good the times with him <3 ... and a looooot of them happened in about 7 years ... and I´m thankful for each one of those <3

this tattoo ... which got created by my lovely tattoo artist friend Jose Vigers ... who was a very good friend of Brian too ... and I´m very glad, that he created it ... on the evening of full-moon ... and comet ... and other miracles in the universe

this glitzy tattoo gives me the possibility to start a "new" life

with Brian and without Brian

<3

Thank You! :* <3
