if you're in Berlin this weekend, why not visiting the recently opened OBEY ART SPACE in Mitte to have a chat with Mr. Axel Vindenes himself? Here's what's happening:
“Axel Vindenes is a multi-talent. Not only does he tour the world's stages with his band KAKKMADDAFAKKA, but he also paints in his Norwegian hometown of Bergen. About ten years ago, 35-year-old Vindenes began to professionalize his passion for painting with oil on canvas. Under the mentorship of Arvid Jarle Pettersen, professor, artist and former rector of the Oslo Academy of the Arts, Vindenes refined his style, which can be assigned to Impressionism.
At the beginning of March, Vindenes is coming to Berlin for the first time with a selection of his works. Under the title "Axel Vindenes in Berlin", the artist is showing works that in some cases have close ties to the pulsating city of millions. Visitors can expect, among other things, Vindenes' version of the Gedächtniskirche or a skyline view of the Mühlendamm Bridge.
"Berlin is a very special city for me. With every visit I was fascinated by the speed and intensity of life here. I tried to depict this fascination in my paintings."
The works can be seen from March 4th to 7th in the OBEY ART SPACE (Instelstr. 13, opening times: 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.). The vernissage begins at 5 p.m. on opening day. Vindenes will be present at the vernissage.“
