AND THIS IS IRAQ
Feb 2008 - Collage & Charcoal drawing on paper - 27 x 43 cm
"And this is Iraq. Look what they have done to my Son."
This drawing is a holistic vision of Iraq, former Babylon, with it's souls (Shiìtes, Sunni, Kurds, Jews & Christians) hovering over their chopped up body (home). Later in the Spring of 2008, the spirit behind this sketch told me in locution: "watch it, as the next upheaval will come from Africa.." - I had no idea what this was all about untill it all materialized in North Africa till today.." - Jeanne > Short film TRAPPED IN FREEDOM.
2007-2010 Tribute to Fukushima
Mixed media on cut layers of poems in plexi inclusion 60x 90cm. - Private collection, Germany
"I started this painting in July 2007 and finished it over Christmas 2010, when I suddenly foresaw emerging through my own creation, a nuclear disaster......I was so overwhelmed by the possibility and reality of this vision from past visionary experiences which came true, that I immediately as an act of interceeding, decided to incorporate my poem into it. (see link). Only 2 months later, the events in Fukuschima materialized.. My own brother happened to be there on site for professional reasons on the day the earthquake took place before the tsunami ravaged everything the next day.." - SWAY

"I once visualized body & soul as a shooting star..
in which the body was the star..
and the soul, this huge sparkling trace stars draw across the sky as they shoot by.
MAHATMA(great soul)Available solo project - representing a huge sketch of Mahatma GANDHI, Martin LUTHER KING, Nelson MANDELA & Barack OBAMA exhibited at STARS'N'BARS during the US Presidential Elections.
The story behind this painting was motivated via a dream I had in Summer 2008, walking on the sandy beach shores of Monaco whilst having a conversation with Barak OBAMA. (At that time, the press thought He was too good to be true, yet would never make it to Presidency.) - I then sat down with him in a café that exists in real, and saw two dark shadows next to us, which I naïvely thought were his bodyguards. All of a sudden I saw with my third eye what was happening behind me.. that one of those dark shadowed guards was about to chop off my right hand with an axe. I then threw myself onto Obama's side and woke up from that dream looking deeply into each other's eyes. - Because I had almost lost a hand in that dream, I knew he'd become the next President despite what the press was saying, yet I also knew that he'd Always be surrounded by those dark-shadowed beings (like skinheads), threatening, manipulating and haunting his/our lives.. I always experienced that my presence was unbearable to negative forces.. yet this time it gave me even more strength in the pursuit of my call as a marginal artist." - SWAY
