THE A(-team)RTIST

My name is Heiko Beck Kos and i am working as an artist most of the time in public spaces.

I am a simple guy, who never had the idea of becoming or wanting to be an artist. I more or less swept into this kind of „profession“.

As i grew up in a real conservative household in bavaria / germany, my focus i was teached, was education, making career and building up more and more material safety. I really tried to go for it and did quite well. From my childhood on it was obvious, that there are some little creativ or artistic talents. But i never had the idea of studying art. The reason why i didn`t do this was simple. There is no money to make and no chance for a material safety. So i studied communication-design, which still covered the part of being creativ and beside this, gave me the chance to earn money. Like i said, surprisingly i wasn`t that bad and so had the chance to buy expensive things, i thought i needed.

I did this until a kind of burnout knocked me out. I started doing a psychological therapy and after a year (still going on with my job in an event agency) i found out, that this is not my way and quit the job.
