I am so proud and that I am a part of this project. Please check the latest issue of Traffic Magazine , within you'll find an editorial about the amazing FOLORUNSHO
Lion Base X Berlin Project that I've worked on with Mallence Bart-WIlliams in cooperation
with JR for the last few weeks. I 've never been so happy and enthusiastic about every
new day that I was working on the project.....good energy brings good energy. Period.
It's crazy up to a ridicolous level how many good thing came our way and just fell into place.
Check out the exerpt from the forthcoming LION BASE documentary to get an iside on what's
the project all about.
The 8 page editorial collage we worked our asses of for was an amazing final action
for the Berlin edition of this project. Collage Crew, Tatiana who came all the way to
Paris to bring her idea of a gigantic Lion Base collage to life, Mallence and myself. Paris,
Freetown, Berlin.And we are on to the next one. Paris...are you ready?
"Please grab the new issue of TRAFFIC magazine. Inside you'll find the portraits
of BASE and THE MAKER. Paste them in your environment, somewhere where
you feel it will be relevant, stir a discussion or a train of thought........these young
men are presently imprisoned in Freetown, not for committing a crime but for being
involved in a fight and trying to help a woman that was harassed in the streets.
Their faces were known to the local police through the @INSIDEOUTPROJECT
my friend Mallence did in LION BASE in Freetown last November. They have been
in prison since several months now. While they are behind bars in one of the worst
prisons, their strength and resilience may inspire people when looking into their
eyes. BURN BORDERS BUILD BRIDGES! "
Saturday morning JR's Inside Out Project hit the high end luxury shops on west Berlin's Ku'damm.
I think this is amazing. The craving for depth and some kind of meaning and awareness and
balance is THE cause of our generation, everyone can feel it......a few years ago there was
no Paolo Coelho literature on top of every bestseller list...society as a collective of thoughts
has changed and is changing, right now.....and this project, is not about pointing fingers, but
creating an awareness for different realities and display the lack of balance in our society, that
ALL of us are a part of...me, you..them...and it's about doing something, about creating a
dialouge and raise questions in peoples minds....because if you change your thoughts, you
change your actions.
At the end of the day it is every generations inheritance to create the world to their linking,
what will you do in yours ?
Stefan Strumbel is definitely one of my favorite german artists. If you're in Berlin you
should swing by the Circle Culture Gallery Pop Up at Alte Münze before the 10th of March
and check out his very thought provoking exhibition.
All confessions made under the influence of champaign and pink neon lights are
invalid by the way...
