“I’m faking wood texture on wood, it may look like marquetry, but it’s painted”

Hello Mioke and welcome to our Resort. What did you choose to present?

The SHELTER book with my paintings from the last 6 years.
I’m faking wood texture on wood, it may look like marquetry, but it’s painted.

What inspires you?

The painting of the woman sitting in the tree, for example, is inspired by Napoli Langa who was protesting in a tree for many days to get attention for the refugees  that squatted Oranienplatz in Berlin.
I had to pass her tree every day and was deeply impressed. Every morning she was still up there with lots of police and press around.
I can be inspired by a photograph i find in the internet as well as people and places i find in the city.
It can be everything.

Tell us about a significant moment in your career/work/life

I guess i was maybe 4 or 5 years old when i drew a picture of a rainy day in the kindergarden. My teacher came to look at the drawing and said it was a beautiful one. I was looking on my drawing, proud and i thought that if i’m good in drawing maybe i should be a painter when i’m big?!
