"I am sitting here in my little room, scared of the world outside, my abstract thinking has started to capture everything and put it on paper. I have been an EU pensioner for 9 years.
Previously I worked in the restaurant for 12 years from 1997 to 2009, my family and I had run a restaurant, with food and drinks of all kinds and room rental for fitters. In the vicinity of Hamburg Airport. The restaurant still exists today and the new tenants have taken over a good running business, I had to give up the lease due to illness.
I started painting when my great love broke up with me. And at first my pictures were dark, but at some point I wanted to paint nice big bright pictures and play with the colors. I always try to add something new to the faces of the characters to give them a bizarre and surreal expression. Also, I show my little room in my pictures. I have not participated in exhibitions, I just enjoyed painting." B.J. Hamburg, 15.08.2018
