CURRENT EXHIBITION

THE HISTORY EXHIBITION "VINO to WEIN"
combines a variety of art forms along with storytelling
and filmmaking, creating a new genre and bringing out
wonderful pieces of art, in many different styles.

This EXHIBITION is cutting edge and evolving.
It has continued for a number of years, expanding all the time.

My parents moved to Mallorca when I was 3 years old and
at the age of seven, we immigrated to South Africa.
The only thing I missed was my family in Europe.

We moved around quite a lot,
so I went to 13 different schools. But every cloud has a
silver lining and in South Africa, I learned that variety is a great gift.

However when I moved to Berlin - one of most interesting
places for me as an artist - I was told,
I should stick to one art style.

I wanted to be free!

So as many artists before me, I created a new art name for a different art style.
A pseudonym! But as I wanted to do lots of different styles,
I created lots of different names and I called them my family.

VINO to WEIN! That is how THE HISTORY EXHIBITION started...

So for every style, I have a different pseudonym.
For example: Street art by Kim Wein, Paintings by Alessandro Vino,
Book by Maximilian Wein, Fashion by Harvey Wein and so on.

For the first time in my life,
I could do anything I wanted, create, invent and present.
Now everything was possible! Dominik Wein
