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" ...

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 ...

26th march: ^^ renovation final spurt ^^ ... after this wednesday (when I finished my renovation special 2017) I will post no more old pictures (such as this one, when I was 15 y.o.). This Wednesday there will be here my <3 New Flat New Life Open Studio Special with Special Celebration Cake <3 ... and eeeeeEEEEVERYONE <3 is invited* :* <3 see you soon*

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^^*

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"?

so kann das nix werden, daß Deutschland eeeendlich wieder mal ganz weit vorne auf der gaaaanz großen Weltbühne mitspielt ... *ggrrmmmlllhmmmpppffff*

... and when we kissed ... then it was one of the beeeest tongue kissing ever :* <3 ... of my whole life!* :* <3

18th feb: pls let´s talk about GOLD:

most of the gold got brought in the shape of boooooring gold bars. THIS wouldn´t have happened in other great civilisations such as Inkas, Mayas, old Egypt, old Greece, ... <= THEY would have used it for the reason to create ART out of it! ... beautiful art! ... AAAMAZING ART! ... they would have used it for sculptures, buildings, ceremonies,...
but TODAY "we" ... or pls let´s say better: "some of us" ... prefer to keep it stored in dark BIIIIG safes. <= THAT´S BOOOOORING!!!

it simply shows in which direction our cultures went ... in the past hundreds of years. This shows: GREED in the most ultimative way possible. ... a kind of greed which is useless for eeeeeveryone involved in it.

19th feb: did I mention already, that I LOOOOVE ROMY HAAG <3 what a stunning amazing singer, artist, human* I`m veeeeery glad that I could see her on stage on friday at "ROMY HAAG Blind Dates" in Wühlmäuse* what a PHANTASTIC evening :* <3 Thank You to eeeeveryone <3 Frank Wilde, Justine Turbine, ... ... and wonderful Jens Schommer for that GREAT photography* THANK YOU* <3 Love you <3

19th feb: I was 9 years young when I met FALCO at a tv show in Austria. I asked him for an autograph, but he denied to give me one ... with saying "while working I don´t give autographs". he said it in his typical arrogant way. he said it to a child ... and I was veeeeery mad about him for many years.
12 years later one of Falco´s friends became my mentor and one of the most important persons in my life: Gunther who teached me everything about life, society, ... and he explained Falco to me.
Falco was an HUUUGE IDOL to me ... today would be his 60th birthday <3 HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY <3 miss you :* <3

21st feb: listening to Rossini, Dillon, Tchaikovsky, Empire of the sun, Beethoven, Lykke Li, Mozart, The Bangles, Rachmaninov, David Bowie, ... while renovating my flat/studio and doing workouts* now in the 20th week*

21st feb: that moment when you put fresh color on the floor ... and you realize, ... that the light switch is on the other side of the room ... *hmmmpfff* XoP

22nd feb: *DAMN* one of THE BEST male voices I´ve heared since yeeeaaaars* some of his videos got more than 50 !!! mio views within some weeks. WHAT A VOICE ^^ <3 ... aaaaand he is part of "my family" <3 THE MASK SINGER <3 WHAT A VOICE <3 DAMN :* <3

22dn feb: * Patrick Bartsch mini me * ... colors eeeverywhere ... my life as painter started in the age of two years ... in 1976. my very first memory have been rainbow colors ... created by rays of the sun ... which broke through little gaps of shutters made of wood.

22nd feb: * Patrick Bartsch mini me * ... *good night eeeeveryone <3 ... the renovation of my flat is veeeery exhausting ... but it feels good* ... somehow I feel NEWBORN <3

23rd feb: * Patrick Bartsch mini me * ... never forget where you come from ... wearing the traditional carneval outfit of the 2500 people village in the deepest black forest ... the village named <3 Schluchsee <3

23rd feb: WHEN? WHEN? WHEN? it´s written, that Michelangelo´s "Risen Christ" comes to Berlin ... but they forgot to write the date *AAARRGHHHSSS* ... I NEEEED TO SEE IT! PLEEEAASE I NEEEEED THE DATE!

24th feb: * Patrick Bartsch mini me * ... obviously it was neeeeever a secret that I´m gay :* <3

24th feb: * Patrick Bartsch mini me * ... and as decent little girl ... of cooooourse I played passionately the magic B IIII G flute =D :* <3

24th feb: some words to those "Patrick Bartsch mini me" photos: okokok I stop posting more baby pictures of myself. I was just happy when I found them while renovating my flat. It´s very important to look at baby pictures of yourself (if they exist). if you don´t have them next to you ... then pls ask your parents to send them to you! those pictures are very important ... especially in hard times of life.
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 ...

25th feb: okokok ... pls here one last "Patrick Bartsch mini me" picture <3 Happy Weekend to eeeeeveryone <3 ... and if you want to see all of my baby pictures ... then pls join one of my Open Studios Wednesdays* :* <3

25th feb: " already 20 years after Vermeers death ... his paintings started to increase the value " <= from a Vermeer documentary ... and especially I like the word "ALREADY"
<= phrases like those make me realize, that perhaps I will never get "celebrated" as painter and artist ... as long I´m alive.

so my solution is: I decided: to celebrate myself*

"I´M THE EMPEROR OF ART! I´M THE GREATEST!"

:* <3 :* <3 :* <3 :* <3

25th feb: *sold* *sold* *sold* ... I looove it when someone comes here on a saturday afternoon and buys three big paintings ... all at once* *sold* *sold* *sold*

:) :* <3

26th feb: something I learned in the past months:

People believe in you, when ... you believe in life itself ... in yourself.
Don´t expect ... people believing in you, when you don´t believe in them ... in life ... in their lives ... in your life.
Believe in that planet! ... and the humans living on it!
Believe in yourself ... in life itself ... and everyone will believe in you.

But YOU have to make the first step ... by yourself.

<3

sunday preach over :* <3

1st march: when does someone becomes "an adult":

I became an adult in the age of 43. Because there is no piece of puzzle left, which is needed to create that human being, which one I always wanted to be. Right now I live the life which I want to life ... and to get that far ... I needed endless help ... especially from older, experienced people but of course from younger people too. Now it´s my turn to spend my energy to people, who are looking for their lives: younger people ... and older people, who didn´t have the chance so far to find their lives.
I think this is the moment when someone becomes "an adult". That moment: when you realize that you have created your life 100 percent and from now on you are able to help other people to find theirs.

<3 THX to eeeveryone who did help me to find&create myself <3

1st march: *going new ways!* ... WHAT A DAY: kitchen paint done. half of living room paint done (ceiling, walls, floor). baked a cake. welcomed an lovely open studio guest. ... and now I need a shower* ^^ new colors new life ^^ see you soon :* <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

... today to renovate my flat means doing journeys into the past ...

9th march: ^^^ my veeeery first art collection ^^^ glamorous colorful glittering PACKING MATERIAL ^^* <= THAT was more exciting to me than the chocolate itself* I collected packing material on my walls in my child´s room* (and on the pic: kissing my grandma <3 ... the only one I had ... and she died when I was nine :( and never I met one of my grandfathers neither :( )

9th march: TBT* ... aaaand in the age of 18 ... I was part of the WILD ONES in one of Europe´s best private schools (Tourismusschulen Bad Gleichenberg ) . We lived there the whole week ... and Tom & Tina have been my most loooooved friends <3 :* love them foreeeeeever :* <3

10th march: okokok* one last picture of my past ... when I ended up in model agencies in Milan, Paris and Vienna* ... but I was too lazy going to annoying castings* ... and at that time I had my friends with castles, private boats, Rolls Royce, ... and in legendary clubs such as "Le Queen" in Paris <3

11th march: I think, that this terrible video is important to share: the pressure on politics should become that much high that they punish those people who murdered.
" ... one LGBT person was killed every 25 hours in Brazil throughout 2016."

12th march: a long story ... short: model life ... Paris ... rape ... Le Queen ... and escape:

at age 19, when I finished school ... those people who gave me those jobs for being a kids model ... said to me, that I have to go to Milan. they gave me addresses of the best model agencies and names of people who have been working there. So I went with five luggages to Milan. the first model agency where I went was Elite. the guy to whom I talked to wanted to get me know "better". I didn´t want that and never went there again. Instead I took a smaller model agency. they have been nice but didn´t have jobs to offer. At castings and on the streets of Milan I became friends with older successful male models. one day they told me, that they all go to Paris now and I should join them. I had no idea what they have been talking about, but when I arrived in Paris I realized that the fashion week has started. I took a small flat directly in Montmartre (YES! always I was interessted in places for creative people and just wanted to live there) ... and I found a model agency in Paris and I went to the most fancy clubs of Paris. At that time the club on the Champs-Elysée named "Le Queen" did belong to the best clubs in the world. There I met a sexy, athletic, blond guy. He offered me to stay with him. I liked him and of course it was cheaper to live with him, then renting an own flat. He planed everything for both of us: for example he said: this weekend we will spend at a friends place ... and we ended up in a castle in the middle of France. or he said: we will spend one week on a boat of one of his friends and I just need to pay the flight by myself. or he said: that he will come with a friend and pic me up. then they came with a Rolls Royce. and so on. (many years later I realized that he was an high class escort, which he didn´t tell me when we lived together in Paris). After some months he said "I do everything for you and I want to f*ck you!". I haven´t been a bottom, but I did let it happen, when he raped me in the kitchen. I didn´t like that and on the next possible moment I went by myself to the club "Le Queen" again. there I met a nice guy in a darker corner of the club. I told him my story and he offered me to stay with him. It turned out that he did and organized shows in that club and in other clubs all over France. At those shows he was wearing for example: huge Pharao costumes, Devil costumes for Halloween, ... and he had also GoGoDancers at those shows. I loved my new live with being backstage at clubs and going on tour to other clubs all over France. But that guy was very jealous about me and one evening, backstage ... when I had some fun with one of his GoGoDancers he took a chair and wanted to throw it in my direction. I didn´t like that too and back in Paris I was looking for a regular job. But Austria wasn´t part of the European Union at that time and for that reason I was illegal there and even I didn´t get a dish washer job in a Pizzeria. (at age 8, when my parents got divorced and my mother took me to Austria, she said to me: sign that! And I got my Austrian passport. I thought that I lost my German passport at that moment. many years later at age 26, when I wanted to get my German passport back, they told me, that I never lost it. I had always 2 citizenships. <= that was weired, because in Paris I lived the life of an illegal citizen.). Ok, I got no jobs in Paris ... and some months before I finished one of the best private schools in Euorpe and had 7 professions with my Diploma. In my despair I called one of the best hotels in the winter resort Lech am Arlberg in Austria. The first hotel I reached there answered me, that I could start to work there next week. So I left Paris immediatly and went to that ski region. I worked in a hotel where people such as Princess Lady Di came there, because the hotel had a small supermarket included and she could use the back door entrance, because next to the main entrance it was always packed with paparazzis. I missed her visit, because I felt like a hard working slave in that hotel and quite my job there after some months and went to Vienna, where my aunt helped me to find a room in a flat share. I stayed for five years in Vienna <= but this is another story. and about those years I wrote a book which one is in my archive too. it´s named "GREEN" ... because it´s the color of hope.

13th march: can you see it already!? can you feel it already!? ... my NEW LIFE <3 ... and of course I keep the "FROM THE STREET INTO THE FLAT" graffiti* ... thaaaat many people love it ... and also GLAM Isa Genzken <3 stood in front of it and screamed "I LIKE THAT! ... AAAAAND I DON´T SAY MANY TIMES THAT I LIKE SOMETHING!" :* <3 ... see you aaaaaalllll soon in my NEW LIFE STUDIO :* <3 <3 <3

16th march: PHANTASTIC artist David Garbo <3 catched my feelings while the phase of renovation* ... my whole life feels upside down* :* THX David <3

16th march: ^^whooouuuuiiii^^ one of my "secret" erotic paintings as background ... in a photoshooting by glamorous Matt Lambert aka dielamb (on instagram) :* <3

16th march: sick :( ... inbetween all my renovation chaos ... I got sick a little bit this week ... and need to do a workout break in my 23rd week :(

17th march: I just imagine ... how my whole life would have been different, if ... my mother would have defended her son for being gay ... they way she defended her religion mormon to eeeeveryone.

right: my mother never accepted her son (me) being gay.

17th march: ^^ the renovation ^^

17th march: HAHAHAHA =D ... SCHULE =D ... "..., ist ein positiver Abschluß der folgenden Klasse nicht zu erwarten." <= ich meine: neben Schule mußte ich mich natürlich auch um die Natur ... um Tiere und Pflanzen kümmern ... und um Wolken am Himmel ... und Sterne und Sternschnuppen ... meine Zeichnungen ... und natürlich hatte ich auch eine eigene Bande ("Gang") welche meine volle Aufmerksamkeit verlangte* :) :* <3 (da war ich 13 Jahre jung*)

I mean: I just understand her! everything she did and does! ... I do it similar ... but just my way* <3

19th march: the renovation of my "new" flat is totally inspired by the teachings of my loooved glamorous mentor Gunther Hofmeister. ... he was friend with Luchino Visconti ... and when he lived for about 25 years in one of the most beautiful city castles of Salzburg ... even guests such as Liz Taylor joined his private parties while the Salzburg Festivals. Gunther teached eeeeeeverything to me. ... and TODAY ... I try to remind eeeeevery word he told me about how to create a flat. on the pic above: his last flat in Vienna. on the pic below: Gunther joined my dinner invitation in a garden. when I lived together with my first big love Roman (the fab guy right) <3 in a house in Vienna. ... I was 21 years old ... and lost ... when Gunther picked me up from the streets of Vienna and literally created "SOMEONE" out of me* <= I´m veeeery thankful for that ... for eeeeever <3

19th march: my new serie " Dead Icons in oil on canvas - Patrick Bartsch style" <3 Jim Morrison <3 I know I know I know: perhaps it seems veeeeery kitschy to paint him/them ... but I was on his grave ... when I was 15 y.o. ... so why should I not paint him ... :* <3

25th march: ^^^ 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 ...

25th march: whhhooouuuuiiii^^^ look what I found just right now: almost all my life ... I write every thought ... everything I plan to do ... every idea ... just everything ... on little slips of paper (btw Goethe did that too*). ... and today I found the note which should remind me to create paintings in oil on canvas* ... since that little note I created about 600 paintings in oil on canvas till today ... and don´t plan to stop* <3
