Started this Clown cartoon series 1987 when hit by lightning and M.E. virus, for transforming energy and healing via laughter. Mostly pen/ink and only 3 oil paintings. The RED BUTTON is the EGO, the badge that most people carry, saying; “look how great I am”. Yet we are all like buttons sewn onto a material, speak Earth, and one day someone cuts the cord…!. Marcus and I were best friends, complimenting each other in creative projects. Him with digital manipulations and me with paintings and sculptures.

I am Christiane Behrmann

German living in South Africa, an expressionist, symbolist and mystic multi media artist. All my creations are mostly from inside and about unity and communication between all life forces. For I believe that we are here on Earth to learn how to love and to compliment each other, expanding our consciousness.

Hugging All,

  • Hi Linda, thank you, just wanted to mention that the colors are not as bright as it seems via saturation and computer light. They are actually darker in reality.
