ROLAND KRAPPMANN

He starts his training in the early 80s, in an alternative press collective, where he learns about screen-printing, offset and photography; after that, together with a green building collective, he recovers some traditional german houses made of wood, clay and straw. He starts an artistic workshop, and he paints cars, motorcycles and a number of traditional german circuses with the airbrush technique. Since 2010 he lives in the EcoVillage “Il Vignale” in the Maremma region, on the Latium side, where he made a 5sq/h permaculture project: the colours garden and a research workshop on natural colours.  He is publishing a guide on DIY natural colours for drawing. Roland is also a clown, a juggler and an painter.
