MATE tea forever!

MATE Tea (tee)

MATE Tea (tee)

Displayed is my current MATE Tea fever addiction collection.

so about a month ago, i discovered Mate Tea (tee) at a Mate Tea ceremony at Meta Mate in Berlin, Germany. A group of friends, passing around a couple Cuias and Bombas around filled with Mate and hot water. It is a great way to relax, chitchat, and hang out. Great experience. A social drink of South America since the 16th century .

I recently became hooked with this discovery! I dropped my Coffee addiction habit and went straight to Mate, from one day to the next.

Researching Mate online, i found that Coffee sucks vitamins and minerals from the body. No wonder my body felt dehydrated after 5-6 cups of espressos / coffee’s a day!

With Mate I do not feel this dehydration reaction. It turns out that Mate tea actually replenishes vitamins and minerals to the body instead of taking it away. My back immediately began to feel better! and the Energy is amazing!

Mate has similar effects to caffeine, as it is an alternative. Instead of caffeine, Mate has mateine.
I read online that Caffeine raises the adrenalin level, while Mateine stimulates the central nervous system.

What this means for me???

I felt many sleepless nights with Coffee.

With Mate, I am focused when i drink it throughout the whole day. I get work done. Life mentality  is structured. When I want to stay awake I stay away. And when I wanted to go to sleep, i sleep at ease. Similar to Caffeine, but I am in control.
Every body and individual is different, so this is just my opinion on how Mate Tea reacts to my body. I cannot hold responsible for other’s reactions. What I can say is that friends love this stuff!

Yesterday, I went to this place in Kreuzberg, Berlin called Yerba Mate Argentina. This is actually inside Bike (bicycle) shop, with a large selection of Mate! Don’t be fooled by the Bike shop! At first I did not find the Mate section, but when the Store owner pointed it to me, i went completely orgasmic! hahaha
they also sell a nice collection, and packages, of Cuia and Bombas.

I tried the Cuia and Bombas, and honestly it burns my throat, mainly because i drink it too quick after the hot water is poured in. Mainly because when i want to drink it, i don’t think about it and just drink it.

How I prepare it, which might insult all the genuine Mate drinkers out there!
I prepare it like regular loose tea really.

Half liter of Hot Water.
One full Tablespoon of Mate.
Let it cool down and filter/sift it through. Drink.

So, the picture above is my current collection of Mate Teas. Please if anyone has recommendation of certain brands, and or other comments to share, that would be fantastic! Enjoy!

FELLINI Gallery is pleased to present BERLIN RENAISSANCE, a group exhibition featuring an ambitious showcase of emerging artists: Vanessa Enriquez, Friedrich Heuss, Martina Munse, Winston Torr, and Alexander di Vasos.

A visual journey from the real to the surreal, a mesmerizing quest in analysis and experience with varied symbolism of five diverse artists and their inventive labyrinths. Travel amongst the ethereal, fragile landscapes of Mexican artist Vanessa Enriquez. Play in the world of Friedrich Heuss’s childlike scenes of myth and fancy. Wade through Winston Torr’s studies of human culture, in his temporal works of decay and figuration. Contemplate the gentle symbols of freedom, femininity, and reproduction in the works of Leipzig artist Martina Munse. Examine the bright, dizzy array of socio-human abstraction in the rich works of Alexander di Vasos. Together, these artists present an underground world of distinct individual renaissances for your aesthetic pleasure.

Winston Torr – Giant Little Creatures – Fellini Gallery Berlin

the Documentary Video of Giant Little Creatures Commission Mural by Winston Torr is up!

A GIANT month long process captured on one little Time Lapse Video.

Click the PLAY arrow button to play!

I decided to give this mural a title and named it: Giant Little Creature

In Part 3 of Giant Mural Commission by Winston Torr, I have shown and explained the process of painting the figures with a telescope brush I made.

In Part 2 of Giant Mural Commission by Winston Torr, I had wallpapered a  4.5 x 3.5 meter, about 4 x 5 yard, full of newspaper in preparation to draw on. Once that was done, another wash of wall paper tapestry binder solution was applied, and let dry for many days.

As explained in Part 1, I just a received this Giant Commission from Fellini Gallery to do a huge Mural measuring 4.5 x 3.5 meters, about 4 x 5 yards, for their Grand Opening titled “Amarcord” in Kreuzberg – Berlin, Germany scheduled for early September 2011.

and now, the Final Part,  what the whole world has been waiting for is now available to view on Vimeo!

Here are some pictures to help visualize the whole piece!

Measurements: 4.5 x 3.5 meters (4x5 yards)

Duration: August to September 2011

Medium: Acrylic on Newspaper under Acrylic Polymer
Executed with a telescope drawing mechanism.
