Since the early 1980s, when I first got in contact with the ‘Young Wild Painters’ from Germany and from the United States, I realized that I wanted to work with artists. Spending time with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring or Martin Kippenberger was the most exiting thing that could have happened to a young man like me back then.
Their personal freedom and the inspiring social group they were part of perfectly represented the kind of society that I wanted to live and work in. I found out quickly that my skills would add something to their artistic minds and that I would be able to support their work and career by introducing their art to a bigger audience.
I always felt like an additional brush or tool for the artists and creators that I have been working with over all these years. My experiences gained during the last decades helped me to take my know-how into the 21st Century, where the division between the creative forms is no longer existing in the way it was before. Today, an artist collaborating with brands and institutions is not unusual anymore and the creative industries strong influence on our society has become obvious as well. Nevertheless, there are still trusting people that are genuinely interested in translating, curating and conveying what artists are up to.
After nearly four decades of activities within the art world, I am still very proud to work with the precious good of art and with its creators.
