There is somthing special about old boats on land. They are just waiting for a ride in their real element. It´s like a visual pause between two actions (2008).
In July 2007 I moved to Argentina for four months. My aim was to describe the everyday life in Buenos Aires through drawings and paintings. I wandered the streets to try to catch the essence of the city. I came to favour the boring sundays where the city was tranquil, bare and unveiled. To me that was the essence of Buenos Aires. In between I went for art lessons at Sandra Dorthey and Fabian Burgos, two really interesting Argentinian artists.
The drawings were displayed at KP08 (Kunstnernes Påskeudstilling 2008).
These are some of my first sketches after my arrival to Buenos Aires.
While I was wandering the streets of Buenos Aires looking for the every day life, I saw lots of nice graffiti.
