This fall, it will be 10 years since I started painting and immersing myself in the creative process.
There was not much stability during this decade of my life, but I never gave up on my painting practice. While it has certainly waxed and waned in its intensity, very naturally following cycles of high productivity and long inspirational droughts, I was too intrigued to ever stop. It’s like a visual diary I must carry on with, no matter what. Something always needs to be expressed.
Painting remained a constant in my life, and I am so grateful for that.
When I paint, I have ALL the feelings, and that is probably also WHY I paint. To be more alive. To leave some sort of trace.
Time has come to put my creative work into a more official format. It felt as if it took forever and then some, but suddenly, it was here: BOHFUNKIA. Bohemia and funkiness put into one. A banner, a brand, a name - a place where all of my ideas and work, current and future projects, can have a home.
Bohfunkia is my own personal idea of artistic utopia, my creative playground.
The ultimative artist’s dream, a manifestation of my love for art and freedom.
There are no rules, no second guessing, no critics.
It’s groovy, bold and unapologetic. Real and raw, messy and dark, emotional and “too much” in the best of ways. Emotional, passionate, and a little rough around the edges.
Creativity means living a life of unhinibited (self) expression where the mind is fully rooted in possibility. It’s quite the aspiration, and I like that. Forever in process! I hope to live in that space more often than not, especially when I create. The place is called Bohfunkia. Let’s go!
I hope you are coming along for the trip. It will be great, I promise.
