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.
