Artists for Monolith: 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 Monolith“ 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 Monolith“-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".

Kunst im Supermarkt

Hamburg ist um einen Kunstraum reicher. Und was für einen: In der ehemaligen Aldi-Filiale an der Paul-Rosen-Straße eröffnen die vier Macher der Affenfaust Galerie am Samstag eine neue Niederlassung. Zum Start sind auf den 1.000 Quadratmetern Selbstporträts von 44 Künstlern zu sehen. Kuratiert wird die Ausstellung Das eigene Ich von Elmar Lause, bekannt unter anderem durch sein Wandgemälde Supasupa. (...)

New gallery director: Frida Mindt joins heliumcowboy

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). 



In the last two summers our man of the Leica - Jo Fischer - travelled with some of his buddies to the legendary french bike festival 'Wheels & Waves" in Biarritz. Armed with his camera, he portrayed the event with all of its characteristic people and drivers. The outcome of this documentary is his brand new photo book "Wheels & Waves", that he will personally release this Friday in Berlin at the Harry Damson Speed Shop and this Saturday in Hamburg at Vater & Sohn. 

The book is available online here, and we will also have a few signed copies at the gallery.


20.02., 7 p.m., Berlin: Harry Damson Speed Shop
21.02., 7 p.m., Hamburg: Vater & Sohn 

Jo Fischer will be in attendance at available for book signings at both events.

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?  (...)
