Summer escape to Rothenburg ob der Tauber

This summer I’m so involved with the creation of my new work that I decided to postpone vacations. However last week I took some days off and visited Rothenburg ob der Tauber, in Mittelfranken, Germany.

I was surprised and delighted to see this famous city from the Middle Ages. Is one of the touristic Hotspots of Germany. It receives about 2 million visitors per year. The history of Rothenburg is really interesting; start about 900 BC. Here are some pictures of this visit:

Great view of Rödergasse Street, with Markusturm Röderbogen on the background.

 

This is one of the few cities in Germany that still have the city walls intact.

 

Part of the city walls and the ruins of an old tower.

 

Perfect for a great entrance.

 

St Jakobskirche

 

 

Rothenburg Council and the city square.

 

walking at the city square

 

This is one of my favorites places, it was the Rothenburg Castle. There was an earthquake in the middle ages and just this chapel survived. You can see the original castle on the drawing, and the red part is what now remains.

 

So lovely to walk at night in this town

 

 

Kriminalmuseum: middle Ages punishment for the gossip girls. Disclaimer: our model is not involved in any punishable activities

 

Kriminalmuseum: this is so cool! Just read the description. We need some of this flutes in South America (and of course in North America!)

 

 

Taking a break after walking outside the city walls.

 

 

 

Kunst im Park 2017, at August Stunz Zentrum

At May 20th, 2017 I was invited by Matthias Schmidt and  Sabine Kunz from Awo to participate in the Summer Fest 2017 “Kunst im Park” at August Stunz Zentrum, in Frankfurt am Main. Happy to be there with my good friend artist Maria Fidone. Here a Live Video that we made:

Perú pinta a Brasil

I have been selected to participate in the exhibition “Peru pinta a Brasil” organized by the Brasilian Embassy in Lima. The show is presented at Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru the Cultural Center (PUCP). The exhibition reflects on the bounds between the two countries.

Featured on History Channel

As Andy Warhol said, I just had my fifteen minutes of international fame. I participated in the “IRT Deadly Roads” TV show, from History Channel. We were preparing the transportation of the Dinosaur’s sculptures from Chavin de Huantar to Chimbote (Perú) when we receive an offer from the producers of this show to let their truckers do the job. As you can see on the YouTube thumbnail, at the end everything went wrong! Antamina and I were running out of time for this exhibition, and the “help” of these guys made everything complicated! Well, better check the video, and bring popcorn.

MY THOUGHTS

  • G.W. Boles and Lissa Kelly are really nice people. They worked really hard for this episode. The other guys… I don’t even know their names!
  • On Television everything is a lie. You should never trust anything you see on TV.
  • Artist friends: don’t let a TV show take care of the transportation of your precious art!
  • Disclaimer: no dinosaur was permanently injured during the making of this episode.
