Almost done. Willi the dwarf (not in the picture) takes over the brushes during the last and final night before our grand opening this evening. Jon & Jeremy can get a rest now (picture taken around midnight on May 28).
What a night. Taking photos at our galleries spaceship. Having a Jeremy Fish-branded beer. Watching these guys (while chatting with them and taking pictures) getting the work done. Jeremy and Jon are creating probably the the biggest reflection of a trip to our city (all the way from San Francisco) any artist has ever done at this gallery ... thanks guys. I have the best job ever.
Uploaded some first pictures from setting up the show with Jeremy Fish to our facebook page. Jeremy and Jon Dragonette are still preparing most work in our temporary disco transit location (awesome place by the way), because we can only start working in the new space from thursday on. Well. We'll still be ready for you guys for the grand opening on Saturday. Just wait and see.

Artwork by Alex Diamond.
2-color silkscreen print on tinged grey T-shirt (different cut for Ladies & Gents), Edition of 50 (!)
For the opening of our new gallery space on May 29, 2010 (more info), we are publishing a very limited edition (50) T-shirt feat. our motto "A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done". You can pre-order yours in our online-shop. Shipping cost will be re-imbursed if you pick it up at the gallery (Shipping or pick-up starts May 29, 8 p.m.).
Not only are these guys responsible for our gallery's street promotion to look good, they just launched their own blog with recommendations for what they think you should see in Hamburg's art, music and party scene: HANSUNDGABI.de will be your resource to finding out where to go in Hamburg-City.
Before Jeremy Fish arrives in Hamburg next week, he will show at ArtyFarty-Gallery in Cologne this Saturday, May 15, starting at 7 pm. ArtyFarty is also celebrating its first birthday ... I guess this means Jeremy will have enough reasons to party while in Germany.
You can read about his travels in his blog.
Jeremy will open his show "The road less traveled" with us in Hamburg on May 29 (8 - 11 p.m.). More info here.
It's Secret Wars-time again in Hamburg, and this thursday (May 13, starting at 8 p.m.), the local crew battles again Amsterdam. The event will take place at Waagenbau, and heliumcowboy will play a minor part in all of this ... just drop by, have a few drinks and watch the guys perform!
Video above documents the first Secret Wars-battle in Hamburg, which took place in March.
