Experimental doppelgänger portraits: psychological self-exploration in 2020

2020 has brought some positive changes to my private life (not only because of COVID): fresh creativity, a new relationship and a ton of insight into my psychological clockworks. I used exerpimental twin self portraits to reflect on (personal life) issues to change them for my better.

Self portaiture and poems.

During the last 4 years my partner allowed me to include him in my self portraiture, which lead to a variety of psychedelic and cinematatic portraits illustrating  ‘us’ in an eerie, romantic and sometimes surreal manner.

Bumpy roads and personal success (Retroperspective 2011 – 2016)

The road to happiness is bumpy, but I built myself a rocket and am now aiming for the lucky star!

I gave up my waiting spot in the ‘how can I make it happen?’ help desk line.

Since 2011 I’ve been busy with studying, internships in advertising agencies and in the film set production sector. I traveled a lot through European cities and soaked myself with culture in Berlin. Developed my portfolio every waking second.

I went through heaven and hell, a lot of times. For years I felt like I can’t accomplish anything and like I can’t belong to anyone (creatively speaking). Until I stumbled upon the right mentors to establish my visual voice.

Wide awake.

Young years: I disappeared an awfully lot of times. From pages and faces. A lot of years I felt awfully ‘wrong’ because I liked different thinks than most – back in the little town I grew up in. And out of all I did not like to make conversation. Superficial ones. I am a shy animal who likes to run and hide – and it attracted all kind of strange monsters who loved the case for all the wrong reasons.

Studying design changed everything. I doubted everything and I learned a lot. Five years changed everything: rolercoster from the pits of hell to a glorious dawn.

Now: I am free. Occasionally I get still stuck like we all do. Restless and melancholic. But I found the sun, I found heaven and I found my voice. I am here.

Let’s dive.
