|[29. April - 10. May 2008] US Trip
Review after return:
I would like the opportunity to thank my friend Finn Kelly for everything he has done for me. Without him it would have not been possible! Great job, Finn!
It was very excitingly. I saw nearly 50 galleries and owners. I headed to 5th Ave, Chelsea, Soho and Williamsbourgh. I stayed at the 'Trebeca Grand' and the 'Gansevoort' hotel. I visited 'Kravitz Design' and alot of museums. This was realy interesting. For dinner I met some friends at 'Buddakan' restaurant or 'Dylans'. For lunch I was at 'Pastis' where 'Jon Bon Jovi' took a rest too.
All in all it was very ardously, but worth the time and money. What I was able to learn is worth every penny. I met 'The Godfather of Galleries' who, when he was apprentice, knew Andi Warhol, the same as Heidi who is painting 'Snoopy'. Sorry that I am not Chinese...
I am heading for New York City and Miami with my brand new 'Workmagazine'. Until PUMA days, I have learnt that Germany is far behind the US with regards to openess for fashion, innovations and new ideas. I have arranged some meetings with potential partner galleries and collectors. As an scientist in art, I hope for some open ears at the right places. This will be exciting, I guess.
