In conjunction with Wuppertals socio-cultural event "Langer Tisch" (meaning "Long Table"), the Nautilus Studio will lay an exceptional table: the "Traum Tafel" which literally translates to "Dream Table", an expression with double meaning: an abundantly set table or a vision board, a tool to reinforce and manifest daily affirmations.
With its first official vernissage, the Nautilus Studio invited Parisian painter and furniture designer Liba Waring Stambollion, the Viennese painter and graphic artist Otto Rapp and US artist Jeff Mihalyo originally from Miami, now residing in Seattle. All three will exhibit a selected series of their original works as well as prints.
Partly visionary and haunting, partly surreal and dreamy, the fabulous work of the three artists fuse into one wholeness, one dream work.
To recount the stages of Otto Rapps life would take an entire book. To keep a long story short, his long-lived time in Canada has marked an important period of his artistic career. Since then he is known under the name of "The Mystic". Otto, a Jack of all Trades moved back to Austria, Vienna where he works and lives today.

US born artist Liba Waring Stambollion moved to Paris in the 90ies. To this day, this is where Liba works and lives. Together with her partner, she designs and produces furniture. As an author, painter, bookbinder, curator and mother of two children, nature consciousness and spirituality play a major role in her life.

Otto Rapp, Liba W. Stambollion and Jeff Mihalyo are all members of the "Society for ART OF IMAGINATION".
Liba und Otto will be in attendance especially for the "Traum Tafel".
The third exhibiting artist is Seattle born
painter Jeff Mihalyo. Geomancy, architecture, symbolism and his ever-travelling mind shape the power of his surreal, unique and recognisable work.
His paintings are a journey to a higher dimension.

Airbrush artist Chris Lüning will blazon the street appeal of the Nautilus with an underwater world in live action.
The "Libronauten", a workshop for creative writing and writers, will provide with gems from the literature treasure chest!
With fascinating 3D Prints (live in action) and augmented and virtual reality demonstrations, the EXCIT3D Team from the neighbouring town Solingen, will present the state of the art possibilities of 3D and 4D technology.
In the Nautilus boutique section you can find artistic jewelry, art literature books, postcards, and archival prints of many different artists.
The Nautilus will also offer limited edition prints by US
artist Benjamin Vierling.
The exhibit starts on June 29th (4pm -10pm) and ends August 26th, 2019.

The table or plate stands for external life. Already for the Egyptians, a set table connoted guests to be well served. Without an abundant set table, no-one would feel welcomed. The set table nourishes and mirrors our life energy or force, assimilating the mental and spiritual. "Traum Tafel/ Dream Table" translates to vision board, a visual affirmation method, to help realise our dreams and visions.
Here the dream table turns into the mirror of our soul.
Everyone is invited! Have a seat at our dream table!
We are looking forward to seeing you here. (photo: Benjamin Vierling's prints at the Nautilus)
