NALA visits Ecuador and Peru.
Long-distance cyclist André Pilz from Kassel, Germany will be visit with his NALA art project the countries of Ecuador and Peru.
André and Nala cycled approximately 16,500 km in 3 years
from South Africa to Ethiopia.
On the road, they met 119 artists from 15 countries, who
supported the Project with more then 160 NALA Artworks.
Now they going to South America and looking for painters
and sculptors support the NALA project.
NALA is a little African girl who had the dream
traveling behind the mountains and escaping from home
to explore the world by bicycle.
The artists tell NALA's travel story through
works of art that are shown in traveling exhibitions.
There have already been 8 Art exhibitions in Africa and Europe.
If you want to participate in the NALA global art project,

" The Vacuum cleaner"
NALA has a writer´s block.
painted by André Pilz, 120cm x 100cm, acrylic and dutch metal on canvas
Today I really wanted to start writing my book, but somehow I could not think of anything.
I had so many thoughts flying through my head, but I did not know how to start.
I put things on the table to inspire, but somehow I can not get started.
In any case, I already have the title.
"My little purple bike".
Maybe I'll start writing tomorrow.
Good Night, Friends
