This must be the coolest place a gallery in Berlin has. Join the Sputnik Age with 21st century exotic images at the center of the biggest socialist satellite city ever, surrounded by a sea of highrise buildings in that distinctive Plattenbau-style. 

The great thing: You can easily drive there --- in a romantic streetcar, directly from Alexanderplatz. Simply take the M6 (Richtung: Riesaer Str) and get out at Freizeitforum Marzahn! 

It's part of Exotika 2013, a show of 16 international artists, previously shown in Bangkok, presenting their view of an Exotika 2013 idea. This show is taking place in two different places at two different days.


The artworks of Moritz R® lead the idea of the Tiki image from a narrow retro notion away and into the 21st century. Nonetheless they have been executed in the tradition of these illustrations of the past. When you think of the futuristic images of a Syd Mead, they do reach out, until they find themselves creating the visons of films like Blade Runner and Tron, and so naturally pave the way to computer-generated art in the 1970s and 80s. They are the basis of computergames, such as those we have today. At the same time the virtual worlds of the cyberspace are the contemporary playground for the ever-virtual idea of exotic worlds. By that they may even become the vintage pictures of a retro-style of a future far away from now.

Anniversary tiki mugs arrived!



Following an intense production phase, Moritz R®, Sven "Tiki" Kirsten and Tiki Farm proudly present:

The 10th anniversary "The Book Of Tiki" mug, designed by Moritz R® closely relating to his cover illustration for "The Book Of Tiki", now the standard work of the tiki community, often referred to as the "Tiki bible". The mug is executed in translucent umbra, displaying the fine details and elegant curvy slim line that distinguishes this mug from all others.





The Tiki is shown as standing on a little rock post and seems to be made of stone with little cracks and chinks, a rarity among tiki mugs. Delicate roots are just beginning to over-grow the statue at the bottom, as if found standing somewhere in the jungle. The inside is executed in captivating lilac to match the purple hibiscus blossom, that is supposed to decorate the mug on top of a special recipe for an aphrodisiatic cocktail created by nobody less than Jeff "Beachbum" Berry. Recipe is added to every mug on a little info card.



The artist is currently working on a special edition of the "Book Of Tiki" mug in unique extra colors, each only available once. Check in later for further information!

Moritz R® paintings for sale in Hamburg

"Ich werde immer wieder gefragt, wo man meine Bilder mal sehen und kaufen kann. Nun, z.B. am kommenden Sonntag in Hamburg. Der "Pudel Club" veranstaltet eine Kunstversteigerung. Und zwar für einen guten Zweck. So wie ich es verstanden habe, geht es um eine Anti-Geriatrisierungskampagne, d.h. statt immer nur graue Haare wegfärben und dergleichen können die Besitzer des "Pudels" von den Erlösen mal eine richtige Kur machen, Wellness an der Ostsee, Rückenmassage etc. Also einfach ein paar grosse Scheine mitnehmen und nichts wie hin!"

Listen!
