StereOn, an obituary
By a tragic accident our scene has sadly lost a much appreciated human being and artist. An obituary for Steffen, a passionate bodypainter.
Most of us knew him as StereOn. With his art he has psyched up many people, with his colours hauled them out of their grey worlds. In many ways he has coloured all our worlds. Moreover he was „kind-hearted, tender, insightful, always game for jokes, a good listener and much-gifted advisor.“
Nana, the severely painted covergirl of the mushroom summer edition 2015 wrote to us: “Steffen was a passionate bodypainter. Though by vocation an engineer he wanted to live free, „without pressure, without constraints, without flippancy“. Therefore he chose bodypainting and for many people became the centre of our scene. „It‘s unimaginable that he won‘t ride over the grounds of the festivals with his coloured bicycle any more. To commemorate him we will plant a tree on one of the larger festivals.“
