Markus Tollmann’s new works are expressive, colourful and sensual. From 11.10. – 31.12.2019 he will exhibit them at the Galeria de Arte Minkner in Santa Ponsa. He inherited his talent from his father, the art professor Günter Tollmann, whose environment included Niki de Saint-Phalle, whose master pupil he later became. Already at the age of 15 he took painting lessons with Joseph Beuys according to his formula “Art = Man = Creativity = Freedom”. Later an intensive collaboration in Francis Bacon’s studio in London resulted. Much acclaimed exhibitions in Germany, Belgium, Poland, Spain, the USA and Russia followed, so that today the artist has a large international community of collectors.
WITH THE EYES OF THE CHILDREN
The world of Diego Arango Arango
Exhibition from 01.01. – 27.02.2020 in Santa Ponsa
The Colombian artist Diego Arango Arango (DAA) has lived on Mallorca since 1988. He studied in Bogota (Colombia) and Madrid (Spain). In the art scene he is considered to be a “sophisticated naive” artist, because he paints in a style that depicts dream images and symbolism with “the eyes of children”. He is driven to capture dreams and myths on canvas. His art is shaped by pre-Columbian high culture. DAA always paints outdoors with his own strong colours. Mysterious, coded dream images of almost hypnotic power are created, which touch the spectator. The current exhibition shows paintings and ceramics created by the artist.
IMAGES OF THE SEA
New works by Michael Weigel

Vernissage: 28.02.2020, 17.00 h – 20.00 h in Santa Ponsa
The artist is present
Michael Weigel received his doctorate in “Aesthetics in Nature” in 2005 and has devoted himself exclusively to painting for many years. This is also the theme of his impressive painting: the fascination of the sea, the interplay between sea and sky, sunrises and sunsets, moving cloud formations, peaceful beach landscapes and the play of light in nature. Scharbeutz-Haffkrug is his adopted home. In his studio directly on the beach, he creates with skill and passion impressive pictures on his big theme, whereby his works are not natural images of specific landscapes or weather events, but creative compositions. Weigel has created an international community of collectors through 50 exhibitions at home and abroad (exhibition trips to Barcelona, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Copenhagen, Dubai and Miami).

Vernissage: 09.04.2020, 17.00 h – 20.00 h in Santa Ponsa
The artist is present
The Pop Art artist Burkhard Lohren combines digital and manual techniques and combines photography, painting and collages on canvas and aluminium. Lohren draws on the entire spectrum of pop culture and materialism, media, lifestyle, and celebrity cult. He tries everything from comic heroes and classic pin-up girls to rock’n’roll legends and Hollywood stars. In his pop art collages he confronts the spectator of his art with the modern world, which is driven by advertising, materialism and wasteful excess. ROCKA ROLLA is once again proof of Lohren’s masterful ability to transcend the boundaries of pop art and at the same time bring out his unique pop style.

Vernissage: 31.05.2020, 15.00 h – 20.00 h in Santa Ponsa
The artist is present
Herman Reichold, short HERMAN with an “n”, is one of the most profiled and successful pop painters of our time. In addition to his artistic skills, his works are particularly unmistakable due to their corners and edges. Herman’s paintings usually targets the everyday things in life – sometimes humoristically subtle, sometimes bitingly satirical. The titles are an integral part of his works. They take the spectator into the actual world of Herman, open up the subtlety of the picture and seduce him to smile. For Herman Reichold, art is something every day, something uninhibited. He is happy when his pictures sweeten millions of portions of coffee on sugar sachets, for example.
PALMAS FACES – PALMAS FACADES
Assemblages by Prof. Jürgen Wölke
Exhibition from 07.08. – 08.10.2020 in Santa Ponsa
Prof. Jügen Wölke was the undisputed master of assemblage, the spatial-plastic material images with which he recreated the “world in miniature”. At scrap yards in Berlin and Mallorca he was known as a constant seeker and collector as well as in small, traditional grocery stores, where he found the themes that he took. Wölkes large-format works can be found, for example, at New York Airport, Leipzig Central Station, and in numerous private collections. The Berlin Senate repeatedly presented Wölke assemblages to its state guests as a guest gift. In Palma, he was taken with the maltreated, morbid facades of the old city. He created a delicate mileu of studies which are of documentary value.

If a German citizen passes away with assets, or even his last residence was in Spain, the German and Spanish legal systems are usually affected. The testators, during their lifetime, as well as the heirs after death, are well advised to entrust both the drawing up of the will and the settlement of the estate to an advisor who knows the law of both states. Dr. Sabine Hellwege is an expert on questions of German-Spanish inheritance law and has a doctorate in this field. She is admitted as a lawyer in Germany and Spain and will explain current issues in her lecture and also answer the questions of the guests comprehensively
