clubkinder Artist Talk: Alex Diamond on January, 22 | 7 pm

Alex Diamond: Fuck I Am Talking About My Feelings Here, 2015

We cordially invite you to the second clubkinder Artist Talk at heliumcowboy on January, 22 | 7 pm. This time Hamburg based artist Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond will talk about himself and his artwork. As a kind of veteran of the Hamburg art scene, he will share his oberservations and assessments of the current situation of art and the art market in Hamburg. And hopefully it will lead this evening to insightful discourses. 

The Artist Talk will be hosted again by the clubkinder co-founder Jannes Vahl and Frida Mindt, Gallery Director of heliumcowboy. 

Alex Diamond was initiated as a stand-alone art project by Jörg Heikhaus in 2004. Although it has outlived its original intent, it has become his stage name as an artist.

Essentially being a determined and straightforward storyteller, most of his artwork can be seen as an exploration of contemporary culture and its recurring social recognition patterns, with strong references to popular content and aesthetics.

Known for skillfully employing a vast variety of different techniques and crafts over the years, the majority of his oeuvre today consists of his distinctive trademark woodwork: multi-layered, meticulously and highly detailed sculptural woodcuts, blended with diverse painting and pigmenting styles.

Jörg has been an artist since 1987. He founded the heliumcowboy gallery in 2002 and worked as a curator for large art projects. Today he spends most of his time creating his complex woodwork or rare and intricate drawings and is only excecuting a representational and consulting role within the heliumcowboy organization.

About clubkinder:

The non-profit association clubkinder is an important institution for Hamburg. 
They raise funds for social projects and they do it in their own way and with what they do best : culture and media.

More than a week has passed since our special event Artist talk with Julia Benz, hosted by the very witty and entertaining Jannes Vahl from clubkinder here at heliumcowboy.

We had a lovely evening, with laughs and chatter and a whole lot of insight on where Julia Benz comes from and where her colorful future is leading towards. Thank you to everyone who came and showed support! 

heliumcowboy and Clubkinder announced an auction that night, which would give everyone the chance to bid via Facebook, for one set of the last limited edition fine art prints of Julia Benz three piece work 'Waterbased'. 

The money from the auction, because we are working with a charity here, was set to be donated to help support  Die Schlumper, an art gallery in hamburg city, which gives people with disabilities the opportunity, space and resources to create art in a more social integrated manner.

The auction ended wednesday night and by the end of it we were very happy with the result. 

Thank you all for taking part!

Please note that we do have few print sets left, if you want yours, be fast and get in touch with us or just go to our onlineshop.

For images of the event, click here. If your are interested in visiting the exhibition, please contact us. The show will be up until beginning of November.
