Step by Step – next event Live at Kommando Luftikus

Step by Step

From one of those common bar chatting with friends, I heard something interesting; A friend told me, „ I’m bored nowadays, because anything new is happening. Nothing really surprises me!”

In a way, I see it with a sad touch because I believe that no one in this life makes thing to surprise people in certain ways… If you are looking for surprises, and have already a pre-established surprise level, I guess, anything will really surprise you… cause you are simply waiting for someone to come with this new thing to surprise you… if you really go deep into this thought, you could even think that you are handing over the responsibility of this “being surprised” feeling to others instead of standing up, moving your lazy ass, going ahead looking for what is new out there…

Back in the 60’s, the Beattles was the biggest band in this world….were they surprising people? Or were they that big because of that huge media behind them? I can’t really say what was it, but to me, Pink Floyd really surprised me… because while some were shouting yeah yeah yeah, others were mixing strange ways of using conventional instruments, experimenting with things around them, helping their conventional status of consciousness being upgraded to another level. Some even put them as Avant-Gardists…

I just want to introduce this simple brief thought, cause I really think we should be opened to everything in order to be surprised….if you think you know everything around already, and you are sitting waiting for the opportunity to be surprised, then likely you’ve had already you last biggest surprise ever in your life…now it’s only time for you to die…you can wait it, or do it right now!

Anyways, I can leave it with you to decide what you wanna do, and how, cause I’m sure you know very well what you want in life and who you are here 😉


Besides all this blablabla, there are some great news for us, and everyone who support our work (also for the ones who hates and like to join our event to make their criticism, all are very welcome! 😉 ). 8057art is having another exhibition soon, in Köln Ehrefeld at Zoo Schänke, starting from end of October. We are going to show our latest works with new materials and techniques…stay tuned for more info to come soon.

The great news, this Saturday (21st of September), 8057art is making a Live paint action at Kommando Luftikus party, in Köln, together with great artists and amazing music… pure techno is how we move forward…

And I will be playing a Live set from 02:30 – 03:30, with loads of nonsense noises topped with some soulful groove …

If you are open for surprises and new experiments, feel free to join us there to share this wonderful atmosphere that we hope to build together with all of you.

please make sure to follow our steps to get to the party at:

See you there!

when the spring sprouts

the importance of a quick break, sometimes defines next steps on our creative development path, pushing our limits even beyond where they use to be…looking back at our past expressions, one can get a clear view of how we deconstruct shapes and forms, breaking it down to a fun game of matching color and emphasizing contrasts driven by our unquiet mind …

That is what this break brought to us till now, and from this point on we proceed… let’s see what comes next…

you can find more at 8057art 😉 if you like, just follow us…

with love

finally managed to finish another production, but now with more fun…soon we are going to introduce a weekly podcast with artists assigned to SONOPTIX making evolving DJ Sets, Live experiments or simply friendly chatting … stay with us for more updates…



Keep Moving

Moving on experimenting new fields, discovering new techniques, materials and most important, new people…Discovering how important is to share things with completely different people…without knowing, they update your mind (and hopefully you their’s)  for free and introduce some new unexplored dimensions to play with in, that sometimes, can give you back very interesting things …

#TausendBar makingOff

Colors, lines, shapes, forms, expressions of things we have in our minds…for some, art has to be meaningful, has to be clear and profitable obviously…some others pretend to be more cool or open minded believing that art can be anything, until its price tag, than what is art starts to be questioned again…

If it’s cheap or for free, has not so many value and people think it’s not serious. If it’s expensive, some might think you are running nuts and for them what you are presenting isn’t really art (usually they take their thoughts from common media, therefore as you are not there yet your price is questionable), others maybe think you are such a great artist and they want to hear your stories, your experiences and all references you have (in most cases isn’t really honest, they react like this because you are exposing something expensive).

This is the point when art changes its essence in my opinion, leaving behind the beauty of human expression to become a speculative product for this wild market…this goes straight into the “artist” ego making them believe they are really able to produce more expensive stuff than others, triggering in their mind something really scary enough to change their personality…at this point they feel becoming the “artist” that every important gallery in this world would fight to have on board  Hopefully their next client could be some really famous actor/actress from Hollywood or any mafia chief that is willing to pay thousands of dirty money coming from years of dirty job, exploitation, crimes and so on…

Does this make any sense?

Now it doesn’t matter because this artist became powerful, has money, people want his stuff and he really believes he is different and more important than the rest of that miserable population…

Anyways, this is just some random thought that came into my mind…perhaps because I don’t believe in all this, on my daily routine, on people’s interest, on things happening around me, and most important, in those concepts one day I’ve been told that I must follow … I can’t understand how people live their lives happily, simply following ideas they’ve been told once are true without questioning it, going forward carrying this same shit inside as our old generation carried for years …

I believe I don’t share this thought, or feeling…for me art is much more than how expensive it can be, or how many money it can bring you. Art gets people together, opens up new dimensions in our minds, free us to question these useless concepts that people insist in supporting. As an essential expression of myself, of the way I see this world, my Art can’t have a specific price tag, or any suggested meaning, because what you see here, is the mirror of what is inside me… you are welcome to criticize or enjoy it, but please bear in mind that all were made from inside out, without any plan or target, therefore every little scribble I make is without any further meaning than just be another scribble. This makes absolute sense to me…and to me, this is the only important thing 🙂
