Thomas Egeler aka 4000 - we LOVE this man not just for his paintings but for his friendship, wisdom and humor! We’ve been first showing his work at STADT/LAND/FLUSS in 2004, a group show with Jim Avignon and SAM. that took place simultaneously at three galleries (heliumcowboy, Feinkunst Krüger, LPG) with a shuttle service running between the locations.

It has been nothing but a Lovestory since! For heliumcowboy founder Jörg Heikhaus 4000 is the most important painter of our generation in Hamburg with the biggest understanding of how this crazy artworld functions (he’s figured it all out!).
