Just came back from Lima, Peru, where I organized together with my friend @SEIMIEK the 4th edition of ” EL Poder de la Bike” BMX Freesytle art exhibition and bmx flatland show. This time we got the chance to use a huge basement in the heart of Miraflores in Lima. Between Graffiti, Street Photography and BMX, we showed our collaborations with local Artists: @RADIO @POHYO @NAJART @CHEKA @RINKE and also did a BMX Flatland show with the homies @djthomasyoung @MCRichiman & @Leibnizmen. Have a look to the Gallery and the video!
Thanks again to all the people & sponsors, who made this event possible in Peru.

During the Summer in Berlin, we’ve filmed a new video for Casio G-SHOCK, from Peru, Latin America.
We went to many locations in Kreuzberg- Friedrichshain & Mitte to catch the flavor of the city and have a better approach to the urban scene.
Last week I got the chance to do a show & workshop for the community and kids of our neighborhood in Kreuzberg, Berlin. This is a new project, that seeks to bring together the youth of our city through the sport.
Under the coach of bmx professional riders, the youth who take part of this project could also develop their skills like creativity, self confidence, discipline & progression, and of course, the most important thing, feel the freedom to ride a bike. This project has been possible under the support of the QM of Berlin & KMA Kreuzberg.
While in Berlin for the IFA, I met once again the Light painter artist Roy Wang from Beijing, China. We are always looking for new technics and concepts to develop new projects. This time we went for a bike night ride to show him some of the urban places in the city and we visit and shot together with the Berlin Light painting Crew ” Aurora movement”, Mafu and Sven Gerard. Good Times between photographers and a BMX.
Have a look to a couple of pictures we made with the new Z11 of Nubia Smartphone on the street locations and the work at the Studio with the crew.
Thanks for a nice collaboration and the support, Stay tuned !
A new collaboration artwork in Berlin, but this time with friend and urban artist WESR. The concept is based in the idea, that for a bmx flatland rider, the floor is like a canvas, and the bike the paint brush. So, as a Rider, the mission is to express creativity on it. Literally we put the idea at work and developed the concept.
The first time in 2004, I have used a big surface as a canvas, for an art school project in Lima. This time we’ve used a square piece of wood as a canvas and put some color on my tires! After this first part, Wesr took the canvas to his studio and put together some creativity to complete the Artwork.
The positive thing, is that this project continue developing itself, with fresh ideas and new collaborations.
Have a look to the final result!
Just came back from a 2 weeks tour around Denmark, Germany and Croatia, where I got the chance to perform BMX Flatland shows, competitions and film for a new summer Video in Europe. Really exhausted after all those 6000km by car, ship, train, planes, bikes…Good times with my team friends and partners Waldemar Fatkin & Stephan Kornely from Koblenz. On the road in North Europe, I got the mission to document the trip with some pictures for the next Issue of BMX Rider Magazine, that will published from 3rd August 2016 in Germany & german speaking countries: Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland & Italy.
More material is coming in the next weeks, enjoy the Summer 🙂 Thanks to all the people & sponsors for the great support: BMX Butikken, SIBMX, Wethepeoplebmx, Flairbmx Berlin, G-SHOCK, Nubia Mobile, KROM Kendama, Wildschnitt.
