Painting is a state of my soul and inner world into which I was born. Later I lived in the world of contrasts, which mingled with those inexplicable feelings since I was born, which are always present in my subconscious and which I encounter in my dreams. In which something powerful, fascinating, cannot be expressed through human language and at the same time very close appears. This phenomenon became an integral part of my work. When I first visited a Picasso exhibition, I felt and captured a small piece of my soul. Inexplicable work! Immerse yourself in bright colors, curvatures, deformations and deviations from classic image perception. Something that might later turn out to be our reality and real beauty? I tried to express myself in different directions, wanted to somehow show myself, to stand out, and found my own handwriting in cubist surrealism. It is important for me to go my own way so that my pictures find acceptance. I want to create and exhibit works that are valued by the viewer and achieve recognition of my art. In my work I deal with everyday stories, facts of daily life that we often do not perceive. Many pictures are “myself”. Every person has different sides and therefore I show those aspects that we do not see with normal perception. In my depictions I capture many aspects of a past moment, spiritual, philosophical and physical. It is important, emotions to see and depict. To express this, I depict people as “gutta-percha”, placing them in different levels and in unnatural positions. Anyone who looks at my art sees a very differently from me. He discovers a very different story, and that is of great importance. It is not only my interpretation but also that of the viewer. This opens up new perspectives.

Colorful European way of life

The European association socio-political education community (GPB) would like to promote the international understanding in particular on European level and affirm thereby among other things the tolerance in all areas of the culture and the international understanding thought.

The association around chairman Peter Schöner therefore also supports the Ukrainian artist Lion Ebergard with his first exhibition “European Feelings of Life”, which brings Cubist Surrealism to the Bistro Hotel de Ville.

The vernissage was attended by many art lovers and politicians, who all wanted to take a piece of the European attitude towards life with them. The feelings that Lion Ebergard describes with the help of Cubist Surrealism are not the current situation with financial shortages, but a European dream world. The artist therefore did not choose the lifelike representation of reality, but painted an irrational view of the world.

The 13-year-old Nhat Ha Phan accompanied the evening musically with her violin and opened the vernissage. Peter Schöner introduced the artist, who was born in Ternopil, Ukraine. There he worked as an entrepreneur before he started as a professional artist in 2003. More than four years ago Lion Ebergard came to Germany with his family, where they first lived in Cologne and then in Aachen.

The patronage for the exhibition was taken over by Mayor Rudi Bertram, who found the old council hall perfect for such an occasion. “It is almost a matter of course that an artist from the Ukraine exhibits in Eschweiler – which was not always a matter of course,” explained the mayor. “If material things are pushed into the background, then we in Europe can continue to live together peacefully,” Rudi Bertram appealed to the feeling of togetherness in Europe. “Art, sport or culture – we have to look ahead in solitude.

Christiane Karl was also proud of the exhibition. “We have a lot of art in the city region and art from outside enriches our offer,” said the city councilor. “I like many pictures!” The hotel director Anita Kloth was also enthusiastic. “I have fallen in love with the pictures and have already chosen one of them to decorate my living room. The artist himself also said something about his paintings, which his wife Ana helped him with and translated. He thanked the many guests who gave him a great honor to visit his first exhibition. His paintings would all tell a story of their own.
