One of the best things about living in Berlin is that all the time are great Art Exhibitions, such as HERUS!

This past March 9th I had the opportunity to attend to this fantastic and original art exhibition of two of my favorite contemporary artists, Sophie Vallance and Douglas Cantor.

Sophie is from Scotland and Douglas from Colombia; they are based in Berlin and London. I will tell you a bit about them from my point of view…

I met Sophie almost one year ago here in Berlin; she loves cats! An I liked that, if you know me well then you will know I’m a cat lover, and as well, she is a very strong defender of women rights, a great Feminist. Then, she told me that she’s a painter, and the first time I saw her work I was amazed. I felt the behind the paint and saw that deep messages that each of her paintings have, that’s for me what each artwork should have.

Then I met Sophie’s husband, Douglas, as a person he is amazing and as a painter, he is beyond this world! I got amazed again by his huge artworks, he usually paints in big sizes and looking his artworks in persons is incredible.

For me, an artwork needs to make you feel something, tell you a story and drive you to the artist mind and feelings, and for sure all the artworks of these two artists do that. As Mexican, I feel like these two contemporary artists are the modern and upgraded version of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I would love all of you to see their artworks in person.

This exhibition, HERUS, was in their studio, where all these artworks were made.

The artworks presented in the exhibition were:

Douglas Cantor:
Raise your cup, 2017
An eye for an eye, 2017
All roads lead to London, 2018
Hell in between, 2017

Sophie Vallance:
Venus, 2018
I’m right where I should be, 2018
Mother Fokker, 2017
Kind Botoño II, 2017

If you want to know more about these artists, I recommend you to visit their webpages and social media:

    Hello , I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good! I'm also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur. I'm also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Can you recommend something what works best for you? I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.) I have subscribed to your newsletter. :) Hope to hear from you soon. P.S. Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think? Regards Jan Zac

      Hi Jan, Thank you very much for your message. I'll definitely check out your website. For suggestions about improving the SEO of your website and not including SEM (paid), I would really recommend the Google Badges (courses), are really good and they give you ideas of what and how improve your SEO. As well, I recommend you to install Google Analytics, which will give you all the data that you need to measure and implement improvements. Finally, for Market analysis you can use Google Trends ;) I hope these tips help you and let me know if you need anything else! Best, KimGarza.
