Here I present another family member engendered by my Köln Experience.

The Drawing Set of DJs, the Key Point of these 3 years of Outdoor Savage KriggleKraggling.

The portaying of Djs came naturally after my attempts to draw bits of crowds dancing. But I had no clue at this time, that I was stepping in an Unexplored Land.

It’s Once again the People of the “scene” that made me realise my discovery.

Everybody here follows, likes, is fascinated by those artists, musicians, gurus (call them whatever you want to call them),
and they definitely are responsible for generating an Energy proper to our Times, and our antic need to find a reason to

celebrate….Life? ( I will try to develop a bit this point……later)

So what was for me, a simple personal task seemed to be much more seemingful than my other experiences to the eyes of the raving folks.

“WAW, did you just made this portrait of DJ..Koze (für Beispiel), Hey Hast Du das Schon Gemalt???!!!”

Stepping to the Zone of Icons and Idols, whereas the Djs themselves can sometimes define themselves as a product of Anonymat

( people changing often their artists name, collaborating with different musicians or labels, or refusing to choose a Show-Biz name and keeping their Birth marks as a sign of Normality, etc, etc).

Fuck man, here I found myself, not drawing anymore, but making a Anthropo-Sociological research, Jesus,Mohammed,Bouddha,Santa Maria SCHLACK SCHLACK (sound of self inflicted pain with thorny branches).

Because of that position I assumed, I got to meet more and more fellow Human beings, and I was enjoying it, plus it gave me some more drive and courage to take out my papers and my pens and chase the Dj down, like a GeistJäger (GhostBuster).

I didn’t show any Dj Portraits at the KunstBasar but everybody knows they existed inside somewhere, in my backpack, in my books and in their memories.

My last point with this series, is that, I too enjoy the music and found it interesting to pay tribute to the artist, by turning him or her into art.

Its equivalence exchange like in Alchemy. And my last question is why do the people and myself give it a special interest,

Are we still looking for guidance, in our oh so civilised world?

Why do we feel the need to gather in our Oh so individualised World?

And what is this absolut necessity to put our soul and body in movement, at the sounds of beats and instruments?

I always considered that Dance and Music came a long time ago from a natural need for Human beings to Mimic Nature and its features, wether there were animal , vegetal, mineral or elemental.

And the figures of the Shamans, Priestess, Conductors shapeshift through history such as the Samurai became the Senior Executive in a country we all know for having been struck by the Thousand Suns of God’s Wrath.

So Whats with Killing our Idols and becoming Our Own heroes?

We sure are not ready yet…….

So those Artists/Musicians/Composers/Producers, do they actually have a responsibility towards their public?

Or is it just one of the various masks of Entertainment?

Cause when I draw my fellows Djs, surrounded with their blinking machines , cables, and Headphones, I like to imagine them as some kind of Post Modern Heroes carrying visions through Sounds,

but the other part of me ( the Dark One) is also aware that maybe in 50 years, some students will be taught that it was just the result of demographics and Social Contingences at the time,

and that what appeared as a strong vernacular cultural Movement, was swallowed by history, and will be easily looked at a possible Fail like the Hippies in the 70s.

Where do we ground ourselves?

What are we fighting for?

And more importantly Te..Te..Tell me Wha..Wha..Why do we Dance ?

Propose,Induce,Dream,Design Invisibles cathedrals is what the Soul does, when the Flesh Rocking, Body Moving allows it to be freed, under the influence of Sounds.

But one has to take care of those frequencies and Vibrations in order to let the Dancing Overcrowded Organs of bodies become One ……..(fill the blanks, I already chose the facet of the Prism, we share.)

Let’s Call it DJs, to simplify this body of work, but lets not forget the questions raised.

And Thanks for the Music because without it, this world wouldn t have any Blood and Guts (tasty choice of words can be music to the ears).
