Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

wi

2017 was a very busy year for me and I could not write as many blog posts as I had planned.

With the year coming to an end, I finally found some time to show you my new studio and some photos of the Swiss Week Chengdu.

While going through the photos, I found some other images that I would like to share too. They are bits and pieces from the many shows and events that I had in 2017. Above photo is from the opening of my first Solo Exhibition in Chongqing at Sunac Private Board.

I had searched for a bigger studio for quite a while and I am very, very happy to have found this beautiful, spacious studio.

While painting is the most important aspect of a studio, receiving guests is important too. In my new space, I can offer "Kong Fu Tea", a very traditional way of serving tea in small cups, big enough for one or two sips. In a ceremonial way, the tea is first washed, then poured several times. With each pouring, the taste is changing slightly. With Pu Er or red tea often from slightly bitter to sweet. Tasting or drinking tea shows many similarities with enjoying a glass of wine.

In the next picture, you can see the centrifugal machine that helps me create my "Centrifugal" artworks.

This table is the most important part of the studio because this is the place where most of my paintings are created.

With storage rooms, living accomodation and main hall, the studio is 398 square meters big and has beautiful terrasses all around.

It is located in a pituresque town, built a couple years ago with distinct traditional Chinese architectural feautures.

The studio has already experienced its first parties. A couple weeks ago, we enjoyed a whole lamb that the nearby restaurant grilled on one of the terracces:
