Nearly end of August – 20th till 24th of August to be exact – Carmen Kordas, Andreas Ohrenschall and myself were invited by Rudolf Maximilian Becker, curator and owner of the gallery WELTRAUM in Munich, to throw this exhibition at the beautiful Orangery at the English Garden in Munich. At this very special location we were happy to present eighteen works (graet paintings and drawings) of Andreas Ohrenschall and the magnificent video installation of Carmen Kordas »We are spinning our own faith«. Apart from that I had the pleasure showing nineteen pieces of my work in the fields of drawing, collage and painting. Even if it was raining cats and dogs still a lot of people made it to the verni- and the finissage. Thanks to everyone who made it and to everyone who was involved in this happening. ♡
7th to 11th May 2019 // Art Below Chelsea at Old Brompton Gallery, Kensington, London. It was boombastic being back with Art Below – this time in Chelsea – at the Old Brompton Gallery. It was a perfect vernissage with a lot of nice meets and good talks. Thanks to curator Ben Moore for making that thing stable. It was so cool seeing good faces from the last time and so many new ones. Special thanks to Ben Moore, Emma Johansen, Tim Gatenby, Gia Strauss, Ru Knox, Sophie Milner and Samantha Louise Emery for hanging out (and for the photos).

With »Art Below« I droped another big advertisement in the London Underground at Hyde Park Corner again. // It was on display for two weeks from the 7th till the 21th of May 2019. Thanks so much to Curator Ben Moore and Art Below for making this happen!
22rd to 24th February 2019 // »NONECONTEMPORARY«
In February Ray Moore and me threw this exhibition at Gallery WELTRAUM in Munich. Thanks a lot to everyone who was there and to curator Rudolf Maximilian Becker for having us!
»Kunst hat die Kraft Grenzen zu sprengen – auch die Grenzen der Zeit. Deshalb ist Kunst im besten Fall weder zeitgenössisch noch epochentypisch, sondern epochenübergreifend und allgegenwärtig. In der Ausstellung »NONECONTEMPORARY« setzen sich Ray Moore alias The Poet that Paints (Mississippi/München www.raymoore.de) und Falk v. Schönfels alias fluctibus mit der Zeitlosigkeit von Kunst auseinander. Ausgangspunkt ist ihr Interesse für Figuren, Charaktere, Wörter und Poesie – der Weg, den sie beschreiten, ist die Transplantation von alten Elementen in neue Umgebungen. In einem »serious play« (Ray Moore) verbinden sie mit Humor und Ironie alte, bereits bekannte Inhalte und Aktuelles zu einem Narrativ, das nicht zeitgenössisch, sondern epochenübergreifend ist.«
2nd Dezember 2018 // Luckily the guys from »EAT POETRY – food & art a la carte« asked me to show some artworks at this amazing New York-style Bar »Alt Giesing« in Munich for their poetry/food/art-event. The lighting conditions were a bit challenging but it was nice rocking such a beautiful place for a while. Organizers and guests seemed to have liked it, so my pictures stayed there till the 6th of February 2019. Lots of thanks to Basty from »EAT POETRY« and special thanks to Chris from »Alt Giesing«, it was fun working with you!
