I have the pleasure to be part of Little Dudes project, 100 little "dudes" from artists around the globe made of paper or wood or cardboard or whatev´s, each one individually designed. In addition, they all go into a book project with the same name! Exciting! The income from an auction of all little dudes is going towards charity. I chose animals (of course). And my dude is a little... well have a guess :).
Party and exhibition is 6th of June 2014 in Villa Neukölln, Berlin. Come along!
Hello hello hello! Morocco again, of course. Taghazout is graced by peacock / phoenix mix now. I was accompanied by Jade, my little apprentice, who colored peacocks the whole day on paper and even matched her style to mine. Lovely, that´s why we do the streets. Interactions that make your life a colorful box of surprises.

As some might know, I´m in love with all things Arabic and Spiritual, so this one is a snapshot of an (almost finished) Hand of Fatima, a symbol against the evil eye. It got enriched by Om and the Ajna (3rd eye) Chakra and Sahasrara (crown) Chakra, a Mohak (3rd) eye and some of the typical Mohak feathers. Enjoy! Feel free to leave me your comments and thoughts over here.

This time I got something sent from Turkey by Fulya Coskun. Seems like something is resonating in people with the peacocks, they are truely making their rounds. We are walking the royal path here.

Obviously Mohak peacocks made their rounds in Morocco, so that an NGO in Sebt Mzouda near Marrakesh got inspired to paint their building with a similar one.
UPDATE: Concerning the Sebt Mzouda located ASSOCIATION ANAOUAT for "women and children" run by Amina Byouz (I had to inquire about the name of the association as they didn´t mention it or it´s website in the first place), who got "inspired by" my peacocks to paint their new building with a similar one - they did NOT paint the building together with the women and children and also did not ask them about their own design ideas. Nor did they ask me if they could use my design for the association, but didn´t have a problem of showing me the copy in the end. #fail
Interestingly, there is quite a bunch of associations in Morocco for women and children, although a lot of time it is unclear how much is done for these women and children (see paint #fail) and how much money raised with the Association goes elsewehere into lucrative projects.
As a side note: All of my peacocks have an intrinsic connection to my life and persons along my way, so each of them bears a liveliness in them, because they ARE what they are, all of them are unique just as every person is unique. By the mere act of copying them, you take the life out of them, hence you basically kill them. Even I can´t copy my own, because every unique being is just to be created once, no cloning possible. When you connect to god, you channel and every channeling is an individual process never to be repeated.
OSHO´s words of wisdom to this:
“Each person is born with a unique individuality, and each person has a destiny of his or her own. Imitation is crime, it is criminal. If you try to become a Buddha, you may look like Buddha, you may walk like him, you may talk like him, but you will miss. You will miss all that life was ready to deliver to you. Buddha happens only once. It is not in the nature of things to repeat. Existence is so creative that it never repeats anything. You cannot find another human being in the present, in the past, or in the future who is going to resemble you exactly. It has never happened. The human being is not a mechanism like Ford cars on an assembly line. Never imitate anybody…” ~ Osho from The Book of Understanding
Got the chance to paint a beautiful peacock mandala for Maayaa Eco Friendly Store in Rishikesh, India. Including the attendance of the opening puja ceremony. Beautiful, such a nice group of lovely people! If you go to India, make sure you pass by one of their stores in Pune or Rishikesh. Maayaa is also a Tarot & Numerology Specialist, plus working with cristals, sound bowls and lots more. Inspiring!
