After WWII, an underground cultural movement emerged among the young Americans: Rockabilly. The American Youth that remained both physically and mentally stuck during the war was now looking for a motion in line with the spirit of the current epoch. The youth of the roughneck, rambunctious middle and lower-middle classes found its lifestyle in Rockabilly. Rockabilly promised soul, freedom, motion and hope, for a young actor from Omaha could become Marlon Brando, the greatest of the 20th century, or another one from Tupelo could become Elvis, one of the greatest music icons of all time. Thus this movement that has been influencing our lifestyle since the second half of the 20th century, has also been a process shaping both my daily-life and my artistic personality. The Rockabilly persona that I created in my artistic practice is an opposition against the manipulative nature of art; it’s anti-art. It’s an attempt at manipulating art’s essence, its static assumptions. This is the main mission of someone who is a Rockabilly.
