Artists for Geberit: win unique art on luxury bathroom products

Art edition by Alex Diamond on Geberit Monolith element for wash basins. To win it click the image for more information.

After our first collaboration last year with chef Stefan Marquard for his grand restaurant „Hase + Igel“, heliumcowboy teamed up again with Geberit, the european market leader in sanitary technology.

Based upon the success of this project, Geberit and heliumcowboy launched “Artists for Geberit“ and selected three creatives for a new series of artworks on ‚Monolith‘ surfaces: Julia Benz, Jeff Soto and Alex Diamond. Each artist designs unique artwork for one WC and one washbasin element. These designs will be printed only once, and can be won in an online raffle, including the matching shower toilet Geberit AquaClean Sela and the washbasin Emco.

The first „Artists for Geberit“-Edition by Alex Diamond has just been released, and you can take part in the first round of the raffle for this series already. The artworks by Julia Benz will be released in July, Jeff Soto will follow in August. 

You can find all the details how to win this high-end luxury bathroom equipment by following this link.

For more information about the Monolith Bathroom series and the AquaClean Sela please visit Geberit.com.

And: this very first edition by Alex Diamond just made the news: Here's what luxury interior design magazine 'Places Of Spirit' just published in their most current issue:

Feature in 'Places of Spirits'-magazine about Alex Diamond's artwork for "Artists for Geberit".

New gallery director: Frida Mindt joins heliumcowboy

Frida Mindt has arrived. Photo by Nils Hasenau

If you've been following us a bit closer you've probably realised that heliumcowboy had quietened down a little bit lately. After being one of the european pioneers of a new breed of galleries and being recognized as a top 100 artspace globally for over a decade, we calmed our classic gallery business down a notch or two in 2011.

Well. Expect us to get louder again -  and welcome Frida Mindt, our new gallery director, to the Ranch. More about her can be found here, and while all good things still need a while, stay tuned for our next ventures (and subscribe to our newsletter if you aren't on the list yet).

WRITING FOR ZEIT.DE: ABOUT VANTAGEPOINTRADIO

Our gallery founder Jörg Heikhaus is an author for the Hamburg-blog of Germany's biggest weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. He writes mostly about art, obviously. In german. 

His latest article just launched today:

Let's talk about art

Auf meinem Weg zur Arbeit (oder sonst wo hin) lasse ich mich gerne unterhalten. Doch meist rauscht keine Musik durch meine Kopfhörer, sondern das gesprochene Wort: Ich bin ein großer Fan von Podcasts. Nur leider gibt es noch zu wenige Sendungen, die sich der bildenden Kunst verschrieben haben. Vantage Point Radio aus Berlin ist eine der schönsten Ausnahmen. Und wirft sogleich eine Frage auf: Wann kommt eigentlich der erste Hamburger Kunst-Talk zum Mitnehmen?  (...)

Interview with Julia Benz on vantagepointradio.com

The fabulous Julia Benz  has been talking to the guys from Vantage Point Berlin, and we can only highly recommend listening to the full interview at vantagepointradio.com. It is a great and very charming insight into her world of painting, travelling and making a name for herself in the contemporary art scene as one of the most exciting female artists emerging from Germany today.

We are very happy to announce that Julia will be exhibiting with us at heliumcowboy in September this year in her first solo show in Hamburg. More about this very soon.
