Master Street Illusionist Johan Lorbeer
Many artists perform on the street as in our last article on Busking. However, Every once in awhile someone comes along, and takes a familiar medium and expounds upon its possibilities. German performance artist, and master illusionist Johan Lorbeer likes to just hang out, and does he ever. Johan calls this performance "Still Life" but to his credit the only thing still is him. Every one else is a flurry of activity, and astonishment when Johan takes to the streets. Sometimes attracting hundreds of people just to see the spectacle Johan creates with every performance.
The crowds a buzz with opinons, and ideas at how this could all be possible. Johan Also likes to showcase his "Still Life" presentations in actual Art Gallerys. As a sort of living art statement that transends physics and gravity. In some ways it gets people talking and dreaming about the possiblities of his illusion.
And this is where I chime in to say Art has never always been about the colors on a canvas or the carefully molded sculptures and textures for me. Art to me is a way to bring people together, and open dialogue, and conversation about life through the multitude of artistic mediums. Clearly, this is what happens when Johan Lorbeer decides to create a spectacle of magic and illusion. And color or no color texture or no texture to me this is Illusion and Art beautifully executed. --- Brovo Mr. Lorbeer
