Thanks a lot, buddies!
I'm so glad you like it too.
You guys seem two mad poets from last century
or maybe something like that, eh?
('Life of the Boheme' by Aki KaurismÃ¤ki)
... went to his site, wish i could read; does he have an english translation?
I fear he doesn't have an English/International version right now. Which is a real pity since this guy makes a living out of his paintings and has so much humor/irony in them.
But you can see some of his paintings and click the 'lens' to get bigger versions
Which one are you? And what is the title of the book on the table?
I'm at the right.
The book - I really could kill that guy for it! - says on the title: 'Karl Marx: Das Kapital'
the story behind:
to have a book of that series in it and placed it for the sitting: These small yellow books are from a german publisher named 'reclam' and are THE STANDARD editions to be used for school-lecture.
They're cheap and always [ <- click! ]
have this look and really Every student in Germany knows them
They have about Every work of world-literature in their program. I'd like to see Buk at their house.
But really, I am mad at Richard to chose this title for the painting! He did it as a joke, since Bogdan and me are running this shop dedicated to Bukowski and the painting is called (ironically): 'The Business Partners'
(we've been talking about that before and thought it's a funny turn - also to paint us with not-so-happy-faces and all.) But I fear, for somebody who doesn't know us, the title could be mistaken as not being irony but an ideological statement.
Anyway. It's a true 'Wientzek', and I told him to make 'a true Wientzek'.
