Art & Beer collaboration: The Dirty Hands Of Alex Diamond

The Dirty Hands Of Alex Diamond: Label artwork by Alex Diamond

"Stay true. Be honest. Do it with passion or don‘t do it at all. And always get your hands dirty!"
(Alex Diamond)

 

A friendship born from the shared love of Beer, Fine Art and Craftsmanship - when Brewmaster Oliver Wesseloh and Artist Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond met a few years ago, they knew that some day they will have to combine their passion and create a very special and unique beer. 

In a collaborative effort of Kehrwieder Kreativbrauerei and heliumcowboy, Oliver and Alex went to create the beer recipe last year, test and improve it along the way, and finally started brewing this summer.

It is a limited edition Artist Beer - one where the artist not only made the label artwork but was involved in creating and producing the beer. The goal of the brewmaster and the artist was to make a beer that is inspired by the art of Alex Diamond itself. 

THE LAUNCH: A BEER-VERNISSAGE OCT 13

The result - a powerful and strong, truly handcrafted beer - will be publicly presented at our gallery in Hamburg on October 13 (6–10 PM).

Here's to the Facebook Event page.

LIMITED EDITIONS

At the presentation of this beer we will also launch an edition of 300 beer boxes containing 6 bottles and an 11-color silkscreen print of the label artwork (18 x 24 cm, signed and numbered by the artist and the brewer).

And that's not all - for the art enthusiast Alex Diamond produced one of his super rare hand pressed woodblock prints, also from the label artwork. This print is 30 x 40 cm large and is limited to only 20.

PRE-ORDER

For pre-orders of the beer box edition please contact Julia from Kehrwieder Kreativbrauerei: braumeister@kreativbrauerei.de 

For pre-orders of the woodblock-print edition please get in touch with us the gallery: sales@heliumcowboy.com

Setting up the show: TRACES OF MINIMALISM

Setting up: Tanja Soler Zang installing her work at the gallery for Traces Of MInimalism. Click image to subscribe to the vent on Facebook. 

Dear friends of the gallery,

we hope you all had some time to relax and enjoy the summer these past weeks! We are back at the gallery, preparing for our next exhibition TRACES OF MINIMALISM.

Minimalism? At heliumcowboy? Well yes!

Why? Why not - we believe in the diversity of art and we have always gone out of our way to bring the best and most interesting talent to Hamburg, irrespective of labels or stereotypes.

And - we are starting a new series of exhibitions for which we invite external curators to take over our space. So its only fitting that we break some standards from the start. 

When we asked young gallerist Lavinia Rosen to be the curator of the first exhibition of the series, she came up with the beautiful concept for TRACES OF MINIMALISM and the potential this title offers. She selected a group of six international artists from Japan, Korea, UK, USA and Germany, travelled to meet with them and selected artwork that meets her high artistic demands for the show.

And it looks great while it is all coming together at the gallery now during installation! We are very excited to show this to you, so come by this Thursday between 6 and 10 pm for the Vernissage of the exhibition.

If you want to learn more about the artists, please visit our website. We will continously post new images and information on our Facebook and Instagram pages. And if you are interested in pre-viewing the available artwork, please get in touch with us at sales@heliumcowboy.com.

See you Thursday!

Jaybo Monk at "142 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg"

Not many of you may know this, but showing the work of artist Jaybo Monk with heliumcowboy has been a wish of mine for many years now. So you can believe how stoked I am that Jaybo gave us some brand new artwork to exhibit at the current gallery group exhibition "142 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg" (until July 24, open every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 2-6 pm).

Jaybo is an exceptional artist with an more than exciting history. He has that combination of wit and wisdom that mirrors in his work, but also makes him a great person to be around. His style is unique and unmatched, and I personally see a beautiful combination of melancholic and romantic surrealistic imagery with an urban-erratic touch in both his paintings and drawings. And well, his objects are again a completely different approach to making us stop, breathe in and think for a moment in our hectic lives ... 

His work is exhibited by influential galleries, such as Kallenbach in Amsterdam, Soze in Los Angeles, Black Book Gallery in Denver or Benoni in Copenhagen (to name a few), and is hanging in important collections, most noteably maybe music producer Swizz Beats' "The Dean Collection" in New York or at the house of Timbaland. Jaybo Monk is an active, socially engaged mind and part of the artist collective "Agents of Change".

Famous collectors from the world of music: Timbaland (left) and Swizz Beats (right) with Jaybo Monk.

Whitewall magazine described his art pretty well in this feature:

„The creations of Jaybo Monk are ambiguous yet hauntingly powerful and of great visual impact. Creating his own version of beauty, narration and meaning, Jaybo Monk is the spokesman of both dreams and reality. In a world where there is absolutely nothing new to be said or done, Monk leaves the rules behind and dedicates himself to the concepts of the original, the chaotic, the insane and the irrational.”

For our exhibition here in Hamburg, Jaybo Monk created 3 Diptychs - wooden frames connected by hinges, so you can open and close the artworks like a book. One side always presents the advertising posters for The Daily Sun, a tabloid in Cape Town, with a crude headline that seems to make sense only in a surreal way. The other side of the Diptych then presents a drawing by Jaybo in which he tries to translate these headlines into his own interpretations of their meaning. 

JAYBO MONK: Monkey Muthi Terror! (2016). Collected poster from Daily Sun (Cape Town), graphite on 220g Fabriano, wood, glass, 106 x 72 x 3 cm | 2.000 € |  Click image to send us a mail and check for availability of the work of Jaybo Monk

One thing I am always telling people is that you need to view artwork in person when you have the chance. That was one of the reasons why I founded heliumcowboy almost 15 years ago, so that more people get to see great international art face-to-face here in Hamburg. Forget the Internet, it can only serve as am amuse gueule and an event planner when it comes to art! Having the opportunity to see the work of Jaybo Monk in our town is a rare thing, so if you haven't had a chance to check it out - now is the time!!!
