A touch of Hollywood in Hagen. Because these works come from someone who most probably know well. However, in the familiar context, he tends to use his fists in films like Rocky Balboa or Rambo. Here, on the other hand, there is also craftsmanship, but we’re talking about painting. This art goes back to the powerful and colorful brushwork of the film star Sylvester Stallone. And he even appeared in person at the Osthaus Museum in Hagen on Friday to be present at the opening: “I never thought in my life that this would happen. I just painted for myself instead of going to a psychiatrist or boring other people. I thought, okay, then I’ll just paint. And then the whole thing took on a life of its own. It’s really interesting. The brush pulls you with it. Before you know it, you are directed to new styles that much more difficult. It’s mathematical, precise. Painting is not precise. Often it is inaccuracy that is important to art. That is perfect. ” Museum director Tayfun Belgin is also enthusiastic about this exhibition: “It is a wonderful feeling, believe me. We have worked on it a little, of course with great communication from here to overseas and back again. And the result is 53 wonderful paintings from 1966 to 2020. A wonderful feeling for a museum man in Hagen. ” According to his own account, the Hollywood star and filmmaker has been painting since his youth. And if you want to see the works in person, you have until February 20, 2002 to do so.
