Good news for all of our Victor Castillo fans: after a few years that he has spent in the United States, where he increased his popularity and desireousness with many exhibitions in world reknown galleries from the west coast to the east coast, such as Merry Karnowsky (LA) or Jonathan Levine (NY), Victor will be back with a solo exhibition at heliumcowboy 2014. For those who can't wait for his return - we have two new works by Victor on display at our gallery in Hamburg. Please check this link for available work at our gallery.
If you are interested in seeing the work first hand, please make an appointment with us, by mail or phone (040-484 088 60).
7.500 visitors, 50.000 € for the water and educational projects of Viva con Agua - this years installment of MILLERNTOR GALLERY closed doors last Saturday with a huge success, after 4 fantastic days with 50 international artists and lots of live events. We would love to say THANK YOU to everyone who came and supported the show, to the artists and musicians, to Sotheby's for hosting the charity auction, all sponsors and buyers, the FC St. Pauli and of course the amazing crew of Viva con Agua that worked tirelessly on making this such a smooth running and beautiful event.
Here at heliumcowboy we had the privilege of running the art side of the whole exhibition, with Jörg being the artistic director of MILLERNTOR GALLERY #03, and an amazing crew helping to make this real - a personal big thanx to Georgina, Jule, Marcel, Laura, Doris, Charly, Johannes and Michael ...
And before we will upload more images from the exhibition soon (once we have the all together) - here's a short video by german culture TV 3sat about the exhibition:

MILLERNTOR GALLERY is a social art gallery in the Millerntor stadium of FC St Pauli and takes place at the Stadium of the football club FC St. Pauli (Millerntor Stadium) from May 23 to 26, 2013. All of its revenue is donated to the education and water projects of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. (VcA).
Jörg Heikhaus, founder of heliumcowboy, is the artistic director for MILLERNTOR GALLERY #03 and responsible for all artist and exhibition related activities and processes.
MILLERNTOR GALLERY is the perfect mix of FC St Pauli and Viva con Agua. The football club provides the unique stadium in the heart of the Sankt Pauli district. With the help of its colourful fan scene and culture, the club will turn the stadium into a beacon project for contemporary art and clean water worldwide.
With over 40,000 visitors per month, Millerntor stadium is the ideal platform to reach a broad public. The stadium space will be used by regional, national and international artists to exhibit their works, which will make the stadium one of the most-visited galleries in the world.
