Yuendumu School Doors Part Two

It was a pleasure to paint more animal designs for Yuedumu School doors. Since one of the doors I painted the year before was already wrecked by the kids, the school decided to have me painting my motives on door sized metal plates instead, so that they can be srewed onto the doors and easlily be transfered if necessary. 
 
I love painting that big and had a great time in my studio on the school campus with all the kind and supporting people around. Warlukurlangu Aboriginal Art Centre provided excellent acrylic paint, which is a real treat  when you have to work in the middle of a desert.

Yuendumu School Doors Part One


The painting of the Yuendumu School doors by local elders in 1984 is considered a mile stone in the rise of the desert art movement. Since the famous originals are now on display in the South Australian Museum and no longer available to be covered with graffiti, the Yuendumu school hired me to paint local animals on the class room doors. Eagle and Perentie were the first two designs. More to come next year.

Characterdesigns für eine App

When I came up with this selection of dragon designs for a kids app I had no strong preference. Then I asked nine idividuals on nine different occasions and eight of them picked the orange one at the bottom. Very interesting.

Amadora BD

On the occasion of the publication of "O Rio Salgado" I had the pleasure to be invited to the Amadora BD festival in the outskirts of Lisbon. It's really on the edge of nowhere.


The festival staff was awesome. They set up a very nice exhibition and I had to sign a lot of books and met intersting artists.


All in all I had an awesome time on my first trip to Portugal.


Thank you Amadora BD! 

Yuendumu Studies (part IV)







During this years visit to Yuendumu I really focused on my black and white studies of places without people. I did not do much else this time. All works acrylic and pencil on A2-sized paper.

Poster zur Förderung erneuerbarer Energien in Tunesien

Die Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit hat sich gemeinsam mit ihren tunesischen Kooperationspartnern ein ehrgeiziges Ziel gesetzt: 30% soll der Anteil erneuerbarer Energien im tunesisches Energiemix bis zum Jahre 2030 betragen. Damit das klappt, sind verschiedene Teilschritte erforderlich, die ich auf einem Poster für die Teilnehmer eines Workshops anhand heranwachsender Kinder bildlich untermalt habe.
