The series of portraits „Follow me“ by Berlin based artist Felix Scholz is examining the way of self-representation of men standing in the spotlight of public interest. They all have in common to owe a big part of their success, their media presence and their general market value to their looks. Professional in different fields – as models, actors, sportsmen, porn actors, performance artists or bodyguards – they all are making use of their face and body to keep and enhance their image. In a more ore less subtle way. 

Using hypothetical social media posts of these protagonists – painted in gouache water colors on bristol paper – Felix Scholz is reflecting recent postings or anticipating potential future postings of this men. 

The interplay between protagonist and recipient – the prominent poster and the anonymous follower – is being blurred and disturbed by the intimacy of the unasked portrait. The posting of the portrait, including the tagging of the person being portrayed is provoking a reaction, challenging to position himself in this act of approach. 

Shown until June 1, 2015 in Kunstbehandlung Gallery in Munich.

I just received some pictures from Spain, where the tiles with my illustrations of the endangered animals of Hermannstrasse Station, Berlin are produced. Ceracasa, the tiles manufacturer in Valencia is doing an amazing job. Most of the murals are constructed here in Berlin, already. However, I am looking forward to the missing parts a lot – 4 large murals, that I am still waiting for. Two of them are being produced right now and I have been especially excited about them, because they are the only ones that include text and info graphics too. So the passengers of Berlin Metro will be able to learn about the 85 endangered species, shown in the illustrations. The names of the animals will be shown in German, Latin and English. A short introduction is printed in English and German.

Urban Jungle in Berlin

„Endangered Jungle“ as a concept of redesigned Berlin Underground station „Hermanstrasse“ is dedicated to the threatened habitat of the tropical rainforests.
The large scaled illustrations that I worked on for a period of about 12 months now are going to continuously cover 36 tiled columns and walls of the platform, showing a sequence of distinct geographical zones of tropical rainforests around the globe, together with their smaller or larger inhabitants. During changing trains or the time spent waiting on the platform, passengers are invited to meet over 80 different endangered species shown in more than 150 single portraits – such as parrots, birds of paradise, monkeys and apes, antelopes or big cats – an occasion to take a pause and go for an expedition in the urban jungle.
