Änglar exhibition

In the beginning of this year I got the proposal of creating something related to the theme “Änglar” (wich is Swedish for “Angels”) within of my artistical area – photography. At first I panicked: “Oh no, I am a landscape and abstract photographer and now I do have to shoot people??” – I though. Nevertheless, I didn’t give up. I knew that I couldn’t just deliver some “usual” photographs with the absolute typical angel concept that people usually have in their mind, I was forced to come up with something really exciting! I got the first sketch of my exhibition idea when I went to Gnosjö to shoot the Töllstorps area. After that I checked out real good the place I knew that I wanted to shoot over there, the surroundings …

The reason

Hi everyone!

Some of you may be wondering why am I not giving any sings of life here on RB. Well, I can tell you that I have never been so busy as now. I have been preparing my new exhibition at an art galleri called Blå Huset wich means “The blue house” in Värnamo, a small city in the deep Swedish countryside.

I’m not going by myself though. The exhibition has the theme “Änglar” which is Swedish for “Angels” and counts with several artists exhibiting different kinds of art: painting, sculpture, theatre and photography. The exhibition will be on during the 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd of september and the best o all, there is branch for everybody and the entry is for free!

For all of you that are not going to take an airplane to Sweden and visit my e…

Lanzarote & Fuerteventura Exhibitions

For those who “follow” me +/- often (if I can say it this way) know that I am preparing two exhibitions with the motto “Lanzarote & Fuerteventura”. Because they were two, and running almost at the same time, I decided to call them “Lanzarote & Fuerteventura – Side A” and “Lanzarote & Fuerteventura – Side B”, in a kind of a revival of the old vinyl LP’s or the good old music tapes.

The exhibitions are about my 18 moth life experience in both islands (Lanzarote and Fuertevetura are two Spanish islands at the African coast) – The places i’ve seen, been and experienced.

So, therefore, if it happens that you are here/planning to come here(what are the odds? :) ), don’t forget to visit “Lanzaro…

One more candy in this amazing adventure... (Konstrakan 2011)

I have great news!

I just recieved a letter saying that I was selected to take part in an amazing art exhibition that is going to take part on the 27th of this month (August 2011) in Tranås (Sweden)! And it is not just amazing because I’m in it! How is this so special or amazing then?? The city is not even very big or famous, but what we are talking about here is a national event that takes place in the main street and main buildings of the city (like the train station, cultural center, hospital, etc), gathering artists from all over the country!

The art is exhibited on the street like if it would be a very big market. Each artist has it’s own table and exibhition stand for his/her artwork. In total, it’s 3km (nearly 2 miles) of all kinds of art work to appreciate and bu…

You know what they say...

Have you ever heard the saying “A bad new never comes alone”? Well, I can only tell you all that it is very much true! Despite it hapened many times before in my life, this week was the first time that a bad new came along with a very good one!

I started this week last Tuesday (yes, Monday was a holiday here in Sweden, hurray!!) at work with a very bad luck strike. Not only i fell while working, but as well I broke two fingers on my right hand while falling. Guys, I have never brake any bone of my body before, and if you never did as well, I can tell you: IT IS NOT FUNNY!!! The pain was so strong that I couldn’t stay upp and I almost fainted. And we are talking about two fingers, I don’t even want to imagine how it would be with two legs…

Back home from the h…

Well, well, well... (Euphoria)

Who would say? Just a few e-mails and a small “show case” of some of my works were enough to book a whole month of exposition at the Gnosjö city library show room!

My first exposition… I am incredibly glad!!! I’m absolutely overjoyed!!!

So, from the 9th of November to the 9th of December the show room is all mine…

I still haven’t decided what am I going to have for a theme in the exposition, but I have until August to do it, so we will see about this (I already have a few ideas)… For sure that is not going to be a problem! They enjoyed my portfolio so much that they let me have absolute freedom over the exposition’s theme as long as it is “safe for children” besides that they gave me a whole month just for me!!

But the most impor…
