The time for me has come to get political. Despite all propaganda in the mainstream media and the chances of being called a conspiracy theorist I’ve decided to join the people who are trying to bring more clarity into the foggy panic driven media landscape of our current world.
This is why I will from now on add a new category of posts called “great reset” which in my humble opinion is the goal of the world elite. Many people and channels all over the web have convinced me that we’re seeing a global agenda being forced on to us over since the start of the corona crisis. I want to write and talk about everything from an artist point of view, as a free individual who is considering creativity and freedom of speech the most valuable things that humans can have and which is worth fighting for.
I can only encourage you to think for yourself, wake up and help others to understand which plans we are currently subdued to by our politicians and the finanacial global elite.
For my german viewers I want to start with this perfectly clear overview of what situation we are in from an economic point of view:
For me the following video is already the video of this young year. It contains nothing less than the truth about our current crisis. I will supply the English version as soon as I find it translated. Please take the time to listen to the words of the famous, mindful and brave Dr. Drewermann:
“Awww c’mon, let’s just do a quick one before we head to bed…”

“Memo to me: – The background has got to be a lot brighter to make the pedals pop more. Gotta implement more of the many interesting patterns which are all over the place… – Avoid complex flower arrangements as reference when doing a “quick (color) study“
I’ve been watching part of Peter Chans training on Seeing colours, so I thought I could give it a try. Doing this exercise was incredibly entertaining and relaxing. It helps me focus on simple shapes and of course colour.
Unfortunately I don’t know the original phtographer because it wasn’t tagged but you should be able to find it over on my tumblr channel…
In the past 1 1/2 years we have all experienced a whole lot of changes. The corona crisis has forced everybody to think and behave differently in one way or another. For me it has ignited an internal process of questioning. After decades of an “ignorance is bliss” attitude I am now questioning things. I’ve begun to question politics, economics, media and my own consumptional habits like never before.
After keeping this blog a private playground for my artistic journey for years, I’ve realised, that I want to grow and expand, not only in terms of art but also as a critical member of the society. I really want to contribute to make this world a better place, and since I’m not an poet or messenger myself I rely on posting videos of people whose messages I admire and consider valuable.
So despite the fact that I generally support the “consume less media” statement I’ll share this video with you hoping that you’re gonna find answers about yourself, which enable you to change…
