being sick 18th january - 18th february 2015
filed under THISISMYARTLIFE


some days after my birthday I became sick :(

it lastet for longer than a month :(

including heavy cold, inner ear infection and stiff neck. everything not thaaat much dramatic but painful. I felt very bad and wasn´t able to paint. ... what was good on a way, because my studio is part of my flat and when it is very cold, then the windows are closed, which makes it dangerous when working on paintings, because of the Terpentine used for the colors.

means: I was sick and took everything to suffer as much as possible. sometimes it is good to take time and let the body and soul suffer ...

on the pic below: with homemade chicken soup
and on the pic above: me suffering*

the Mask Show is OVER 27th july 2014
filed under THISISMYARTLIFE


after 9 years:

the MASK SHOW
of
Master Patrick and Fantasy48
is
OVER

from now on there is just Patrick Bartsch with face*

THANK YOU AAAAAALLLLLL for sharing those PHAAAAANTASTIC years with me <3 LOVE YOU <3

on february 2006 I started the MASK SHOW with wearing a black leather mask in public and hiding my face as much as possible ... no pictures without mask ... for many years ... before Lady Gaga had her first big success ... before Pussy Riot ... before masks for everyone became popular.

in the beginning it was difficult, because many people and media didn´t accept an artist with a black mask in public. but I had GREAT moments too, such as: meeting Tilda Swinton, Joe Dallesandro, ...

in 2011 I changed the black mask in a golden mask and have been around that way especially every sunday at legendary PORKparty ... partying with Amanda Seyfried, Michael Stipe, ... and thousands of LOVELY PHANTASTIC more people <3

and now: I plan to concentrate myself more on the production of paintings in oil on canvas ... they should get all my energy.
but: in future: sometimes I will wear masks too ... different masks ... for special events ... or when I am just in the mood for it

my face and my real name will be part of the NEW presentation of myself as artist ... as painter


first public picture without mask

Brian my love
Brian my muse
Brian my friend
Brian my brother

Brian my everything

 

last dance
last song
last hug
last smile

in my heart forever

 

on friday evening I had a frightened feeling about Brian. ... somehow I missed him visiting me, his presence on fb since some days,... for that reason I decided to start a group chat with some of his closest friends, starting with the words "WHERE IS BRIAN?" nobody knew anything and the whole evening we tried to find him. I went to bed at around 11 p.m. friday evening. when I woke up on saturday morning at around 8 a.m. and started fb, then I could see already the first postings about Brian´s death. I lost the love of my life. I started crying and my tears didn´t stop run out of my eyes for the next 7 days

pls find some of my emotional feelings from those days when Brian left this world, below in the postings of fb

Kim Dallesandro in Berlin 26th october 2013
filed under THISISMYARTLIFE


what a GREATAWESOME afternoon and evening: Kim Dallesandro came to the Open Studio with a looot of presents from Hollywood: such as those trousers, THAT t-shirt, a mexican wrestler mask, that skull mask and a masonic ritual mask. we had a GREEEEAAAT time with Gaby (THANK U 4 that picture), 2 friends of Gaby, Brian, Mati, Jason and Aldo. we ended up in a Galery with photographies of Marilyn Monroe and then at midnight in the bar "Besenkammer" at Alexanderplatz.

with all that impressions of the Dallesandro family, I watched some days later a lot of videos of Joe Dallesandro and the whole movie "je t´aime moi non plus" in french language and ate a whole plate of Tiramisu - LOVE THAT MOVIE <3<3<3

N E W TITLE

 

^^ The Emperor of Art ^^

 

postings on fb - 4th july:

4.23 a.m.: ^^ Fantasy48 The Emperor of Art ^^ some days ago I had a long talk with Isa Genzken (if u dont know her pls google one of the leading female artists on this planet) --- we talked also about empires and Julius Caesar. today facebook asked again those annoying questions such as "which movies did u watch" and and ... and "which status do u have in Fantasy48" --- I answered simple "Emperor" <= this was more a joke. ... BUT then I thought about Jonathan Meese and his "Dictatorship of Art" --- I LOVE JONATHAN´s game and started to google "The Emperor of Art" ... and: no entry. and NOW: ^^ Fantasy48 The Emperor of Art ^^ is born* ... I work as artist since I am born - since 39 years --- I go fine with my selfgiven title "Fantasy48 The Emperor of Art" ^^ when I started wearing the mask about 9 years ago - the wearing of masks in public wasn´t that much popular as today - I remember that family and best friends told me how stupid I look with that mask and I should better stop it immediatly <= as u know: I didn´t --- something similar could happen with ^^ Fantasy48 The Emperor of Art ^^ ... but whatever: I think this is a GOOOOOD idea :) and I LOOOOOVE it <3 and ENJOOOOY IT already :)

3.58 a.m.: ^^ Fantasy48 the Emperor of Art ^^ <= I feel, THIS is the action I need right now =D ... my dear english speaking friends: how do u say it right? Emperor in Art or Emperor of Art

3.23 a.m.: hmmmm* hmmmmmmmm* hmmmmmmmmmmm* just thinking: when Jonathan Meese means that this world needs the Dictatorship of Art ... perhaps there is some space for AN EMPEROR IN ART ^^ here I am: FANTASY48 =DDD I mean: I write, paint, do photography, performance, fashion design, sculptures, movies in front of the camera and behind the camera, and and ... and even sang my own written lyrics with a rockband ^^ ... JONATHAN WE NEED TO TALK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2.13 a.m.: hmmmm* fb just asked which status I have in "Fantasy48" ... I answered easily: EMPEROR ^^

N E W NAME *FANTASY48* 27th january 2013
filed under THISISMYARTLIFE


N E W NAME

*FANTASY48*

on fb I found those words:

"needs a N E W NAME ^^ ^^ 48 FANTASY ^^ ^^ I am quite sure that THIS will b my new name --- oh I changed maaaaany times the name in my life (can´t count all the nicnames people gave me in and after school) --- I think it is time 4 a N E W NAME - I mean everyone can see that I wear a mask <= means "Mask Patrick" makes not really sense to me (I found this mask-name very quick after I needed 2 stop "Master Patrick") ----- "4" is my lucky number "8" stands for infinity and "FANTASY" THAT´S the word which is part of me almost my whole life (could b also "Dream" or "Universe", but I think "FANTASY" is best :)) ... "48 FANTASY" I like it already and I think it fits good with the paintings with oil colors which I plan 2 paint very soon ..."

and:

"fantasy48´s DEEPEST SECRETS: in my deepest heart I AM A DRAG - in the age of 15 I was wearing womens cloths with 2 friends of mine at carneval in the countryside of Austria - I looked DAMN AWESOME & HOT - and then it happened: some older guys from the village became hot 4 me, came 2 me and said "U made us horny, now u have 2 SATISFY US!" - I answered "NO! what do u want!? its carneval!" - when we left the bar they have been waiting outside and beat me up - the funny thing on that situation was, that my girlfriends came 2 help me and did fight with these men, while I was laying on the ground. I did never again wear womenscloths and make-up since that evening. --- I am very happy now with my masks and my outfits - ok, I don´t wear wigs and make-up, BUT I AM A DRAG :) with my N E W NAME FANTASY48 I have found finally a dragname which fits 2 me - I come from the deepest countryside and a drag there would name herself "FANTASY" <= that´s the cheeeeapest name possible 4 a drag and I bear this name now. --- yesterday afternoon I listened about 10 times non-stop Michael Jackson´s "Man In The Mirror" and thought about myself - my past, my present and my future - visualized myself and got as result a new name and some more peace with past situations :)"

I am very happy that people which r important 2 me already like that name :)

 

 

The End Of The Black Mask 12th october 2011
filed under THISISMYARTLIFE


this is "The End Of The Black Mask"

*DAMN* I destroyed the black mask by myself: with using metal spray 2 spray the black mask golden - I thought that it is working - ERROR - the mask is destroyed now. this is the only pic of the golden sprayed mask, then I washed the mask and now the mask looks like at it is: DESTROYED!

the new mask with golden leather is in work

 

 

Golden Mask 11th october 2011
filed under THISISMYARTLIFE


the years of wearing The Black Mask r over. reason: I started wearing that black mask some years ago because I saw a movie about a man with a burned face (from an accident with a motorbike) living in Paris, he had to wear such a black leathermask. I wanted to know how he feels. --- at the moment there is a serial killer with a black mask at court in Germany; he killed 3 children about 20 years ago. in respect to the dead children I stop wearing that black mask. I will find other masks and at the moment I wear that Golden Mask, which has original been a present from fans.
