Nomad Uno

0 240

Artist Nomad Uno is not only a talented painter and passionate DJ – he is also a curious explorer and a real slasheur. The outcome of this mix: Yum Yum Bubblegum

Yum Yum Bubblegum is a mix of unheard of originals and private stock edits of rare South African 80’s and 90’s Shangaan and Zulu Disco, Afrosynth and Bubblegum music from the VULKANDANCE VAULTS.
To the most people I know this description soesn’t say much as it is still uncommen to play in the nightlife in Stockholm or Berlin – well except for Nomad’s Vulkandance parties, which have a loyal little mostly male crew that shares Nomad’s charming boogie-nerdiness. For Yum Yum Bubblehum the artist thanks Paul Ndlovu (R.I.P.) , who inspired him with his life’s work to collect and explore this beautiful music and his buddy Ruben for helping him out to find some of the digs on this mix.

Great Job!
To get a feeling of what I am describing here the best thing seems to just listen and explore:

A couple of years ago in the most random circumstances I met Nomad Uno in Berlin. Following his art, love and passion for the weirdness of the world, the millions of ways we can choose to go, the fearless decisions we all can choose to take, I am happy to present our first interview with this fantastic guy! The pictures are taken on a cold winter day in Nomad’s atelier early this year. Right now we show some of his great work in our own gallery Club de Slasheurs in the exhibition SULLY SIDE UP that still runs until the end of August.



/ How would you finish these sentences, Nomad?

Girls that do big bubble gum bubbles…are not scared of washing their boyfriend out of their hair the next morning.
With a towel you can alwaysbeat someone unconscious in jail, when you hide a bar of soap in it.
The most important chess figure is…the Dark Queen. As in real life. The Dark Queen rules.
Never believe that…- believe will help you. There is nothing to be scared of and nothing worth believing into. Follow the omens and be happy about it without missing out on amazing dreams.




What is new in your gallery “KRAFTPUNK” in Berlin?
▽ New is that White Trash Fast Food finally moved into the building and since a lot is going to get rebuild – KRAFTPUNK is gonna get knocked down in a few days, then rebuilt with new walls, new toilets, new everything. Wally and me will still host openings and parties on the construction site. The Artists still get 100% of all the sales …. We just sell booze and beer to cover the expenses. DAVE THE CHIMPS show SKULLFUCKERS was a full success. He sold pretty well and we all got pretty drunk.


/ Did you move near your studio now?
Hell no. I live in Wedding. I could never live anywhere near Schlesisches Tor… I leave it to the pupcrawling tourists and Hipsters on their walk of shame.


/ Do you eat more Burgers since White Trash Fast Food became your neighbour?
Nope. I always loved Wally’s food. He’s an amazing cook, but I mostly have no time to eat there. When I am in the studio/gallery I am there to work.


/ You’ve been living in Berlin for more than 20 years now, right? What is your favorite spot?
My favorite spot is my bed. I built it with my own hands. I chose the mattress well. I got all my books nearby. My records, my laptop and a videobeamer…all in arms reach…  I love eating, sleeping and fucking in it. My bed rules.


/ Does Berlin loose its inspiring character over the years? 
That old whore. Fuck her. When was she ever inspiring? She got bombed out and ruined by the allies and probably was a whore before that…. just way more respectable.
I am not here to get inspired by an old whore who’s name means “Swamp“ in ancient polish. I am here to inspire. I am here to live an artists live. Cheap thrills! Cheap rent! Room for thought! But it seems that it gets less and less manageable. Mediocracy and boring old money took this city over. The old whore has found new pimps. Let’s see for how long they can pimp her out.


/ You are currently exhibiting in our gallery Club de Slasheurs in the group show SULLY SIDE UP. What I was meaning to still ask you:

/ Can you remember the dirtiest day of your life?
I am sure there are a plenty of people you know that can willingly answer that question for me. Personally, I do not categorize “dirt“. There is nothing dirty in what I do, and it never will be, since no such processing exists in my shameless free mind. I am pure as freshly fallen snow, frozen after it got ejaculated from gods penis.


/ What is the best mask to hide a sullied / tainted character?
Gods Penis.


/ How do you prefer your fried eggs: Sunny side up or sunny side down?
Fuck the sun. I like Darkness.


/ Do you have a favorite artist yourself? Who is it?
Too many too mention. There is so much incredible talent on this planet, how could I only pick one? R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz is a person worth finding out about.


/ When did you know you wanted to be an artist?
When other people had labelled what I did “ART” and I had to talk to artbuyers and sell them that crap as something dead serious conceptual.


/ You are also a DJ, can you compare your work as an artist with your work as a DJ when you think about power and the way you touch, move, upset, inspire or manipulate people?
Its simple :
As an Artist you suck – everybody comes, congratulates and celebrates you and comes to your openings to drink free booze and find something to fuck.
As a DJ you suck – nobody dances unless the rest of the people around you are more stupid than yourself.
I am supergood at both. A true Genius. I am not kidding you.


/ What are you working on at the moment?
Dude….. who cares? Nobody gives a rats ass about me. I worked elaborately inconsistent and personally pissed off, beat up or threatened each galerist, art collector or agent I ever worked with. I don’t need a career. Career needs me. She comes and tells me “do this and you will eat good this month“ so I do it. I don’t have career plan. I am free. Forever.


/ What else is coming up for you this year?
I hope I will witness a lot of squirting. I just love when you can see the cum shooting all across the room. Other than that Dirk Leyers and me will complete our first Album as AFRICAINE 808 for Golf Channel recordings in New York. First 12”s are released and sold out, so the Album is pretty much overdue.
Other than that  I’ll do a couple more VULKANDANCE Parties in Berlin and play some more unheard of insanely fresh Tropical dance music all over Europe and the world.
I am finishing 28 life-size sculptures for an Israeli real estate developer friend in Berlin.
KRAFTPUNK GALLERY will reopen, reopen and reopen until it’s finally open and got its final shape and feature some of Berlin and Europe’s finest anarchists and the few left free minds in the cultural and art world.
Fuck conformity! Smash boredom and consumerism! Free the Phoenix!


/ Thank you so much, Nomad!

to sully
=  1. To mar the cleanness or luster of; soil or stain
2. To defile; taint

Which side up? It’s a tough choice we make again and again. Some of us love the gleaming bulged side of the egg yolk up – where its liquid bursts and sullies the fried pieces of the egg-white and creates new unforeseen patterns. Some of us prefer the sunny side down, hard and hidden. Some of us can never make up their mind if this guck is appealing or disgusting.
What about people, art and life? Do we want the fascinating, disgusting, creative, sullying side up or down?
In Club de Slasheurs’ first exhibition SULLY SIDE UP. Five contemporary artists based in Berlin present their perceptions of urban life in their work.


Nomad Uno
Throughout twenty turbulent years, Nomad spent time at the centre of the Berlin graffiti scene and encountered life as a homeless street artist in San Francisco. Today, he has finally made it within the art world. From a penniless street performer, to selling his work to celebrities, he has witnessed society from the very bottom to its very top.


Kor Izoh
Growing up in the lurid environment of a family butchery, the artist turned to 80ies splatter movies and gloomy cartoons at an early age. These images had a strong impact and made a lasting impression. Today, his works have one thing in common: across genres they are inspired by modern media and the images it creates. Scenes of violence, anger and fear are an excessive exaggeration of our vulgar “tits’n’porn” culture. Such visualizations can be found not only in horror movies but also
in war reports, the news and even on the kids channel.


R T K C // Robert Kizielewicz
I prefer to work with pencils; water colours, acrylics on materials like wood and thick coated paper or things that I found in my environment! The source of inspiration for my work comes mostly from people: their moods, their behaviour, the sadness, faces, eyes, motion all the extremes in all its facets!


Kai-Alexander Donner
It was a long way filled with prosperous and less fortunate twists that led Kai-Alexander Donner to the art of painting. A longsome and surreal process guided him to follow his feeling of “this has to be done”. The artist admits: bottom line is that there is no element that is more contradictory to my character than art.


Sahra Zoë Polosek
Sahra Zoë is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer based in Berlin, Germany. She works on various commissioned design as well as on self-initiated projects. Her fields range from illustrations for print magazines to the mood research and layout of directors interpretations for commercials.





/ Do you remember the dirtiest day of your life?
Kor Izoh: That depends on what dirt you mean?
Kai-Alexander Donner: I do. But I won’t tell you.
Sahra Zoë Polosek: I do.


/ What’s the best mask to hide a tainted / sullied character?
Kai-Alexander Donner: Lots of Humor.
Sahra Zoë Polosek: An even uglier one.
Kor Izoh: A well done pedicure.


/ How do you prefer fried eggs: Sunny side up or sunny side down?
Sahra Zoë Polosek: No eggs. Only balls.
Kai-Alexander Donner: Definitely Up!
Kor Izoh: easy over.


The exhibition still runs until 30th August at Club de Slasheurs, Großgörschenstraße 28, Backyard.
Opening hours of the Gallery: Thursday – Sunday, 12-20h.

On the hot hot Saturday afternoon of the 5th July we opened up our Kindergarten for creative fools: Club de Slasheurs!


It was a magical afternoon celebrating the art show opening of SULLY SIDE UP. starring Berlin based artists Nomad Uno, Kor Izoh, Robert Kizielewicz, Kai-Alexander Donner and Sahra Zoë Polosek. We enjoyed the delicious wines of Domaine la Louviere, cold beers, Popcorn, cake, Exclusive Coffee and ice cream while mingling into the summer night.


Thanks to Tobias Vetter and Tripploss we all got tattoos – some of the kind that will stick forever and remind of the day where we were all sitting at old school tables once again sharing our dreams about butterflies and children’s games – some of the kind that only last for 2days in the new look of SlashMuse and Club de Slasheurs’ logos designed by Swedish graphic designer Olof Bruce.


DJ J’espère and KOLMER were a big support making sure we enjoyed ever minute of ice cream in the deck chairs as well as rummaging in our pop up store that offers fashion, vintage, accessories, jewellery, coffee table books, magazines, home accessories, post cards and an exclusive Poster edition by Berlin based photographer Marc Schuhmann! The product range is growing everyday now thanks to more and more exciting designer cooperations. So, just pop by and have a look at our Club!


We thank everyone who came from near and far away to join us for this beautiful day, we thank our fantastic sponsors and all our amazing helpers making this place happen!!

Especially after Fashion Week (it's always before Fashion Week) we question ourselves or more dubitate about the sense of the fashion circus from time...
