        Invitation to Art Opening "Synergy between Text and Image" by Harald-M. Lehnardt in Cologne, Germany

        Invitation to Art Opening "Synergy between Text and Image" by Harald-M. Lehnardt in Cologne, Germany

        Invitation to the art exhibition "Synergy between Text and Image" by Harald-M. Lehnardt in Cologne (Rondorf), Germany.
        On Sunday, 23 June 2024, the Kulturkirche Rondorf in Cologne (Rondorf) will open its doors for an extraordinary art exhibition. Under the title "Synergies between text and image", the German artist and graphic designer Harald-M. Lehnardt presents his works.

        Inspired by his 14 years in New York, where he discovered American 'Abstract Expressionism', as well as 12 years in Hawaii. There, Lehnardt developed vintage-style text-image compositions of Hawaiian history and surf culture. Lehnardt offers a unique visual-poetic exploration that reflects his international experience.

        The vernissage begins at 12:00 noon and invites art lovers and interested parties to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Lehnardt's art. Known for his ability to combine text and image in a unique way, Lehnardt creates impressive visual experiences that inspire thought and wonder. Harald-M. Lehnardt has made a name for himself with his unmistakable style, combining literary texts and graphic elements to create harmonious works of art.His works not only reflect aesthetic beauty, but also profound content that takes the viewer on a mental journey.

        After 26 years in metropolises such as New York and Honolulu, he now lives as an artist and designer in East Westphalia. Current projects include large-scale wall designs of 12 flats for the Ronald McDonald House in Bad Oeynhausen, which was realised in 2001 according to the specifications of the American star architect and designer Frank O. Gehry, as well as corridor and wall designs in the Eidingsen Monastery (22 walls) of the Vlotho Deaconry. His current works reflect his closeness to nature and his homeland. With his current theme, Bastauwiesen, he creates new synergies between text and image.  

        The exhibition in the Kulturkirche Rondorf (hosted by Link + Partners Architekten) offers an ideal opportunity to experience Lehnardt's versatility and creativity at first hand. Visitors can look forward to an inspiring atmosphere in which the boundaries between art and literature become blurred and new perspectives are opened up.

        Peter Trombly, 'Pioneer Underground Wavesail Board Shaper’ has passed away on March 28, 2023

        Peter Trombly, 'Pioneer Underground Wavesail Board Shaper’ has passed away on March 28, 2023

        He influenced many Hawaiian Surfboard Shapers with his skills and was well liked in the community. On March 28, 2023 Peter Trombly passed away. Peter was my former neighbor in Hawaii on Sunset Beach. Back in the day he shaped boards for his dear friend Eddie Aikau, he shaped the legendary white board in the incredible shot of Eddie Aikau surfing Sunset Beach in 1975, taken by Surf Photography Pioneer Dan Merkel; the shot that I use for my compositions in the Hawaiian Legend Series. As a known shaper in the early 80s, Peter also worked for German Surfing World Champion Jürgen Hönscheid on the island of Sylt, in the north of Germany.
        Peter was the one who introduced me to Clyde Aikau and the Aikau Ohana when I just moved from Pupukea on Oak in 2005 and then in 20010 to into the Sunset Beach neighborhood, and he saw me working outdoors on my Eddie artwork. In 2011, when I exhibited my artwork at the Kahala Hotel and Resort on Oahu, Peter, graciously offered to play guitar at my opening.
        I am so very sad, he was such a wonderful person and such an honest soul. I will miss you Peter. Rest in peace, my friend. Aloha Oe.

        We are mourning the passing of our dear friend Buttons Kaluhiokalani

        We are mourning the passing of our dear friend Buttons Kaluhiokalani

        02. November 2013: Here in Hawaii we are mourning the passing of a dear friend and one of Hawaii's Surfing Legends Buttons Kaluhiokalani due to complications related to cancer. As one of the greatest performance innovators surfing has ever known, Buttons is remembered for revolutionising modern short-boarding with his radical maneuvers in the 70's. His surfing inspired a generation. He will be greatly missed by the surfing world. I will always remember him for his kindness and his compassion. A great man, with a great smile and a heart of gold, a great performer and also a family man. He is survived by his wife, eight children and eight grandchildren. 

        I love the beautiful image of Jeff Divine and Lisa Scott Owens: they captured the heart and soul of Buttons, beautiful and iconic. I worked very hard to combine both of them in one of my poetic text/image compositions (see more: www.kuliana-edition.com), and I love what I created. Similar to what I composed with Brian Bielmann's shot of Andy Irons after he passed away 3 years ago .. also on November 2nd. May they both catch up in heaven .. and maybe George Ramos (another NorthShore Legend that passed away this summer) will keep them busy paddling; I know they all are in God's good hands.
