The artist’s career results from life itself, creation, and the creator.
Since every child is an artist, art started at a young age. Brvning learns painting techniques at an early age and is enthusiastic about the word, the music, learns drums and percussion, which is still enthusiastically practiced to this day.
Over the years, the ideas, the opportunities, and the possibilities expand. Digital media flow into the work – the internet as a possibility of exhibition. In later years, the fusion of child and adult consciousness is celebrated. Due to the playfulness and originality of the child’s way of working, as well as the wisdom doctrine of the millennia – the artist embarks into the great variety of creative activities in a word – picture – video – sound. Ora et labora

Brvning is maybe the fictional character, the body of sound, the tool.
A playful child with a loving view of the future – art – uncertainty and the basic trust of heavenly certainty.
With Brvning as a messenger, various deeds arise through him as a tool. Aesthetics and evaluation are replaced by possibility and play itself. Utopia is a critique of reality. Art as objectified leadership is the fixed star, the orientation – the contact person. The artist, for his part, learns to disregard himself in favor of the potential that arises from art without taking yourself too seriously.
Art worship becomes humble, loving, and playful.

Hello Udo! How would you describe your art to people?
Udo: I describe my art as a mirror, as a testimony – both to my orientation and devotion to my vision of life. In a certain way, the works reveal spiritual sensitivities, observations, feelings and thoughts in a playful way. At the same time, however, it is also an empathic contribution, since the artist as a being sees himself as a part of creation and also perceives the dreams and visions of others. The artistic works become a meeting point.
What’s the most challenging part of your artistic process? And how do you overcome it?
Udo: The intense part of creating results from the presence and presence of being, in which the artist is devoted, prayerful, open, and loving. The present opens the space for the spirit, which inspires me and guides me to very instinctive and intuitive work, so to speak. It is out of this muse and grace that I create my work. This is the most intense, beautiful, and challenging part of my work
You say in your work the fusion of child and adult consciousness is celebrated. How do you manage to keep the playfulness and originality of a child with the wisdom doctrine?
Udo: If one sees oneself as a child of God and at the same time continues into the wisdom of eternity, then one has permanently visualized this area of tension. And children are allowed to practice and operate out of this grace – because they do not have to suffer from the perfectionism that can arise through perfect knowledge.
What motivates you as an artist? Is it curiosity, the search for beauty or meaning?
Udo: It is more the search and finding of meaning, truth, and wisdom. But I am also certain that there is such a thing as beauty and aesthetics
How has your style changed or evolved over the years?
Udo: In the past, I loved drawing with pencil, pastel chalk and charcoal. In the course of time, liquid colors and the diverse technical possibilities up to digital design are added. While I used to create individual works, today I work more serially and in periods and cycles.
What is your most recent piece of art that you have enjoyed working on the most?
Udo: Basically, I cannot answer the question of which image work stands out, because mental developments take place in my cycles and periods, which can be recognized by the viewer through my serial work. Perhaps I am fascinated by the entire cycles, but that would put the individual works too much in the shade – you will notice: I struggle a little with this question.
What is a day of working like in your home-studio?Do youhave any rituals that help you get motivated or in “the zone”?
Udo: First prayer, second prayer, third prayer – ora et labora – working in love, freedom, truth and trust gives me a lot of muse. thats all.
What memorable responses have you had to your work?
Udo: During my exhibition in Hungary, which was framed by an opening speech by me, many intellectual people came up to me and opened their hearts in a very honest and open way – I found that very touching, how strangers can trust their hearts to open. Love is an operation at risk.
What is the best way to reach people that are interested in your art?
Udo: The best way at the moment is via my homepage and my presence in social media – Instagram, Facebook and the corresponding contact details.
Are there any upcoming shows or workshops we should know about?
Udo: There is currently an exhibit on the trip to New York in the Van der Plas Gallery – I hope that my work will arrive there on time and can be exhibited, unfortunately I am currently not allowed to travel to the USA due to the Corona story. The exhibition will take place together with other artists from August 11th to 22nd.
What’s next on the horizon for Udo?
Udo: The next horizon is the connection of spirit – art – charity. I would like to use my creative power to alleviate poverty and hardship somewhat by founding a non-profit organization and company. I am currently in the start-up phase. There are first insights into this on my homepage hope2art.org
