February 2022 was a dark moment for the European society as the Conflicts between Russia and Ukraine escalated, causing not only countless deaths but also the biggest European refugee crisis since world war 2.
I didn’t hesitate for a second when Aperinetwork Luxembourg asked me to donate two of my paintings to support Ukrainian refugees, who arrived in Luxembourg recently, well knowing as a refugee myself how scary and confusing it can be to wake up every morning in a completely different environment don’t knowing the language, culture or future that lays ahead.
100% of the Revenue went to http//www.Ukrainians.Lu/).

The Storm Lux Red Edition
I was in the middle of my preparations for the Aperinetwork Luxembourg exposition when I got a message for another exposition. I had to read the message again and again it should’ve been the eleventh edition of a Tattoo Convention called Life Expo. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I red that the location should be LuxExpo The Box in Kirchberg. A Tattoo Convention? Quite unusual to expose paintings there, but hey color is what I can do best and everything I paint could also be a future tattoo. It was a yes for me. I started to print, I painted like it’s the last thing I’ll do in my life and I’ve also ordered a fancy pop-up banner which I horribly misspelled my homepage on, but nobody could’ve stopped me!
That should’ve been my first big exposition.

The Storm Lux Life 80's Edition
In November we was traveling back in time, aiming for the 80s. A decade full of leather jackets, music that shaped a whole generation and vibrant colors. I was aware of my mission and I unpacked my paint. It hit me like the Loco-motion when i looked over to the turntable I was listening abba on. It wasn’t a groundbreaking idea but It was something I’ve never done (a challenge). I took some old vinyls and started to paint Whitney Houston after Madonna and David Bowie. I was happy, that should’ve been my trademark for the 80s exposition.
But check it out yourself.
