Has The Jerk Movement Freed Itself To Return To Being A Viable Art Form?

!kohaus’ artistic roots have from the outset been grounded in the Avante-garde art.

Hopefully we haven’t neglected a creative area. When […]

@Venomous2000 TheUltraEmcee

At any rate, @Venomous2000’s music is easy to listen to conscious music that doesn’t attack the psyche so much as it is a transformational eye opener of lyrics. The glitzy cover is ripped off of the […]

Is Social Media Really Social?

It’s time for Avante~Garde art!sts to get serious. We are pushing the envelope of creativity, but we are living beings.Which is why this messenger needs to deliver the message.

Art and Social Media

As founder of !kohaus Avante~Garde art!sts I have always been a proponent of artists being social.

So in 2009 when I formed the !kohaus Avante-Garde […]

We have updated some areas on the site. A new building in B1 has opened featuring a special exhibit on the oil spill and a photographic gallery. As always you can translate our pages into many different languages.

Staying the Course

Currently, I have realized that indeed our artwork here is Avant-Garde. It breaks the norm from what is usually produced by current artists; however, that does not invalidate it as a true new art form. The difficulty is as usual, my work is about 10-20 years ahead of it’s time. I have been talking with […]

Black Pirates???

Let us begin the saga and journey back in time when Pirates ruled the seas. There was one Pirate, a black man by the name of “ Little Caesar” a former African King and slave in Haiti, who escaped and ravaged the seas from Florida to North Carolina, where he joined the infamous Black Beard. […]

On The Edge

are the !kohaus art!sts really avant-garde, and on th edge? yes! after speaking with an east carolina university professor, we find it true that we are pioneering new groundbreaking ahead of the status quo. it seems due to economic budget cuts, the university is short on supplies. papers for testing, more students per class and […]

Message From New Member Ken Boe #2

“Yeah, regarding Post-Modernism, I have always questions its actual validity, or EXISTENCE, yet, I find myself still using the term and I have a friend who is very much in favor of it. My philosophy has been that Modernism was never exhausted, that we are still in its era and that this paradigm has not […]

Message From New Member Ken Boe

I am with you in your thoughts entirely. The terms I usually describe myself with are avant-garde, and experimental. Modern or Contemporary also, it depends who I am talking with. Post-modern I am not quite, which I reserve more for installation and performance art, etc. – yet at some point there is a break down […]

The Bloom

The Bloom A broken thorn reminds me of A bloom that I once held. And seared upon my memory The flower’s bloom did’st gracefully Remind me of how gratefully I beheld it’s color fair. And now I know it’s history From that which I was blessed to see How joy which did so artfully Breathe […]

We Went Underground

We’ve done it and gone underground. 3 of my works can now be found and purchased at The Best Little Hippie store in Greenville North Carolina, at “Links”. If you’re in the area it’s uptown in G’ville on Evans Street. More to come, pictures of work and more art installed.

!kohaus going underground

I’ve decided my group will be using and come from the underground. Being so far ahead were making a move to the underground with our work. We’ll make it available on line and at certain galleries and stores among our artists areas, but rather than striving for the limelight we’ll concentrate back on Art 2 […]

I’m Getting Closer To My Home!!!

Let the word go forth! All you Greenville fans, North Carolina fans and everyone thanks for your Avant-garde support. Call all your friends, reporters, and TV buddies to come see me out at the WAF Expo in Cali June 9th to the 11th. The world wants to know where is this new art form coming […]

Meditative Art

Simply put looking for a process whereby the brain is relaxed by receiving a comfortable healing colored image while chanting a meditative mantra. Try it and see how you feel? Comment here and let us know the effect. All praise due to the Almighty.

Coming together

Things finally start coming together at our site. You can preview how our site will be, or jump back through our new mobile portal to the archives. Even travel down under to catch up on Australian news.

Creating in an Art Conducive Atmosphere

Sometimes it can be real difficult creating in the arts atmosphere can become constrained and restrictive. Many can try to invalidate your work. Meditation can be an important component of keeping one’s self-creative if it’s from a non-sectarian point of view. I suggest the following and have worked on a new chant to gain closeness […]

It’s Almost Launch Time!!!

Your right down here in the trenches with us art!sts. We’ve starting migrating to our new site (same name and address) with a new look and feel. Want to see a preview??? Click here and see. Let us know what you think!

BV!log Introduction

This ew tool we’re bringing out here today is the video blog or BV!log (pronounced Buh-Vlog) as we’ve coined the term for a mashup up of a blog and video as we are in a visual art form, what better way to present our blog. It’s only available here through Apture as they don’t have […]

Art!st Presence!!!

We’ve been collaborating as art!sts for quite some time now. Now we are evaluating some new tools, to that means. The first one we took a look at enables a smartphone Moto Q to able to chat, take video and show presence on Googletalk, AIM, ICQ and Yahoo. It’s called “Octrotalk”. Octrotalk is for mobile […]

website redo

we will be re-doing our website. our site has been using google page creator, but now that will be transitioning to google sites, which won’t allow us to embed java and other goodies into the page. so being avante-garde artists, we’ll be creating a regular hosted site that will feed google pages through to hold […]


The Avant-Garde artists of the “!kohaus” movement. The word is a combination of the kwa language family spread from along the Gulf of Guinea meaning “well done” or “congratulations” and “Haus” from the German for house as in The Bauhaus artist meaning, “well-done house” of art. The upside down i (!) represents an 180-degree turn […]

It’s Been A Long Time Coming

Been working quite hard at preparing work for the WAF Expo in California. It was a labor of love. With all that’s going on in the world it’s great to remember that I’m a child of God. Many around me have lost their way. But I’m headed back to the garden, after all we artists […]

NYC W 57th St Mural

Your seeing it here first. Here’s a mural proposal for a building along the West Side Hwy in Manhattan NYC. It’s in memoriam to the plane crash survivors of the Hudson and the fatalities of the Australian bush fires. 2 sides of the building would be of Maryborough Waterlilies a collaborative piece by Maggies Beresford […]

NYC W 57th

One of the latest project proposals that’s been consuming this artist’s time is a wall mural for an old low factory building along the west side highway in Manhattan, NY. I’m looking to skin this building with two works, the same piece along the expansive front and back, and another for the two shorter. The […]


It’s been some time, but we do try to give you an open inside look at the struggle of an artist. 2.5 kids, the .5 is our cat, volleyball games, preparing for college. But I’ve still been collaborating with Maggie Beresford of Australia on the concept of a new work regarding the controversy in Australia […]

Advancing The Avant (garde)

Wow, we’ve really heated it up! Rumors of scandal and scams with the World Art Foundation! Has anything changed? No that’s how we’re in this mess, everybody’s looking to rip someone off for EASY MONEY$$$$   Back to the world of art, my photographer friend Maggie Beresford of Australia introduced me to a great, seems […]

News Flash To Emerging Artist

Here’s the new group I belong too, that I believe will become a force in bringing new and Avant-garde art into the forefront of world view. So if you know, or are a talented artist check this out!!! SPONSORS PAID $58,000 FOR 116 EMMERGING ARTISTS TO EXHIBIT AT THE WORLD ART Expo 09 in California. […]

World Art Foundation

The World Art Foundation is an organization dedicated to increasing understanding and exposure to the arts regionally, nationally and internationally. The […]

The New Birth Of “Cool”

You may see some work going on with the “Abstract” and other pages that have the Cool Iris gallery viewer. To bring that experience to you we’ve gone inside with the developers on the workings of that experience. So if you’ve got any problems or good comments on that aspect of our gallery drop a […]

World Art Foundation

Currently I have a work up for submission for the World Art Expo in California this year. Working right now on submitting works for their pages of artist.

Advancing The Garde

A little like my chess play which is unorthodox, is how I approach spreading the Avante Garde. Many in this day and computer assisted day have forgotten that the term is used to refer to people or works that are experimental or innovative, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics. Avant-garde represents a pushing […]


Bendigo a place in Australia. In Spanish Bendiga means blessing. Surely this area got it’s name from the Latin and probably means blessing. Photograph’s by Maggie Beresford of Australia and some collaborative Avant Garde art with Carlos L Romero of the US. Now you can see it on our site and look what other’s are […]

At The 9

2009…We’ve got some affordable being prepared to go to the streets of NY. If your out there you’ll be able to find signed numbered 8.5″ X11″ framed prints at about $10 in a limited sample set readying for a full Valentine’s day launch. We’ve also sent Warerlilies #0001-#0011 to be on exhibit and for sale […]

Art is Not Nice

Hello, were here on to explore art. Art is not nice! Do you know why? Well when we read, we all read the same words and can come to understand their meanings in a similar like fashion. However Art is not so nice. Art is an illusion. Light strikes the object, reflecting to the […]

WaterLilies #5

Waterlilies #5 is creating quite a stir “down under“. 11 prints have been pre-ordered, with 10 on the way to Australia, one copy going to the collaborative artist Maggies Beresford there and the other remaining in the US with this artist Carlos “Los”. Above is where you can order a print from the limited edition.


Do we ever got a lot going on. Stop by our site and check out the new Google social networking software. Now you’ll be able to chat with artist right on the site. Maybe not live yet. We’re also working on a monster short video movie, setting up a Google checkout cart so you can […]

New Gallery Guide

As we start to introduce our new Google checkout cart, we’ve put on an assistant to guide you through the gallery. Site should launch active shopping cart by Black Friday, Thursday 11/27 Thanksgiving day by 12 midnight.

Counter Corporate

Well looks like we’ll run a little behind in launching a collaborative portion of the Avant Garde site CarlosL However on the bright side what’s really important is having artist like Monica Palermo, of Italy, Maggie Beresford an Australian photographer and Jamie Winter a Native American Genre artist, willing to collaborate on taking art […]

Survey and Going Live

Well we have started posting art from our international guest artist at affordable prices. To help us gauge what you the public would like to see we are posting a short survey. Please fill out the survey so we can create what you want. Thank you!

Avante Garde International

Given the current sad state of affairs in the art world, we’ve decided to take action, by working together with a few artist friends from international countries as a start we won’t try feeding the public the same old formulated pablum!

On Being Avante Garde

Why not just break the mold all the way. It’s so difficult to get value from a system that’s become corporatized into presenting the public with palatable saleable artist. In true Avante Garde fashion, these artist like Monica Palermo of Italy and the photographer Maggie Beresford will be guest artist on my site through a […]


After having left Brooklyn NY in 2006 to revitalize my art in North Carolina, I see and have joined and online museum called Moca (Museum of Computer Art), has now also moved into a physical building for exhibition space. This museum will be a force to reckon with in the future as the move is […]

Immersion Technique

It started unnoticed from when I was a young art student forced to leave Pratt Institute, because of a TAP (tuition assistance plan) foul up (they changed the amount promised, leaving a tuition gap that could not be covered by loans or any other means). They sure found ways to get us radical hippies out […]

Green Zone

An impromptu Avant Garde performance piece was performed at the Duke University, Bassett grassy field Green Zone today. Well over 176 Duke Graduate students and their cars participated during their normal parking routine, in an art project today October 30, 2008 at the serene garden campus. Most performance pieces are witnessed and done without any […]

It Is Dawning

This is just a quick blog to announce the start of the “AA” (affordable art program). I called it affordable art, and my daughter suggested I call it the AA program. Take a look, now a new wave of Avant Garde can enjoy low cost art!

It’s Coming To The Dawn

Well, now seems like the time to really sink into “the art for the masses” project. Very soon you will start to see my work in $5 signed and serialized 8 1/2″ X 11″ format. With some feedback from you, we’ll see what the internet holds for the uptake of this artists work, on affordable […]

Global Artization

Speaking of global artization, this artist has been so pre-occupied with 9-5′ing to keep from being a starving artist with 2.5 kids (the .5 is our cat “AfricaT“) the while chatting with one of my photographer buddies Maggie Beresford from Down Under on Face Book, I came to find that I had been awarded the […]

Radicalize It!

Now after some experimentation and crystallizing the use of digital electronics in the use of drawing and painting, its time to for my art to start getting radical. This thing with Amazon and the UPC codes is just part of the bigger picture of the financial crisis. Art should document and reflect the times in […]

Art Is – Amazon Isn’t

Well the Amazon evaluation period has come to close. The ethics of Amazon leave a lot to be desired. It is not the place for artists. After several months of showing work on Amazon not any hits whatsoever. Hard to tell if there might even be one or if it’s just me posting works there. […]


VIPOD, an acronym I’ve concocted for VIrtual Painting On Demand. Taking a cue from technology, now that painting can be done digitally, the aspect of keeping all painting in inventory waiting for interested buyers is removed. The work can be viewed as a fine representational digital image to reproduced in whatever format the artist chooses […]

Art Is 2

looking over my google analytics, i find interest starting to form in places such as portugal and hyderabad, india. this let’s me know what a slow process it is, however that keeping in mind the internet allows for greater global extension. this cutting down of international barriers is where i seek to let my art […]

Art Is

There has been completely no uptake whatsoever on my art works, through my site or Amazon. This is where it’s perfect to chronicle what this is like. I am steadily buoyed by the fact that on FaceBook, my work is extremely popular in an application called “owned”. Here you can buy all types of pictures […]

MS Photosynth

A new way to look at photographs, that I’m looking to experiment with in terms of art and paintings or prints. Multiple views are available sort of like a still movie with many various camera angle shots. To start I worked with a spider in the garden to the front of my house, but will […]

Art On Amazon.Com 3/FaceBook

We can find that art is truly a perception of what the brain sees, by the reflection of light bouncing off the object and back to the receptors. The brain I believe is already predisposed I believe to perceive what is interesting and stimulating to the electrical impulses which produce a feeling of pleasure or […]

Art On Amazon.Com 2

We find that tags are very important on Amazon. Not having enough let’s descriptors can seriously limit the ability to create traffic. I’m currently working on greatly enhancing the tags for my work on Amazon and evaluating the Amazon fulfillment program, whereby works are sent to Amazon for fulfillment to customers in their Amazon Prime […]

Art On Amazon.Com

I’ve been working on placing a lot of my art on as an alternative way of displaying and getting my art out to the public at large. We’ll visit this topic again and see how the works fair there. So far…nothing.

Apture for Websites

Apture a fantastic new software enabling embedded features in websites like mine @ Carlos L Romero

Going to the Media

Decided to try experimenting in using video to create site traffic. Cutting edge art is a lonely spot to draw attention to. People will probably take some time in becoming used to what is outside the box.

Back To The Garden

The art world is a difficult place. So many are in the know with who’s who and what sells that art has become a market and an analysis rather than a true creative process. Professors and critics abound to pontifcate the accepted views of what is and is not. Being lost, is the spiritual process […]

Spatial Objects

Gimp is a great open source pictorial editing program. I can use what I call image objects and manipulate the perspective and size of the object before importing it back into the art creation software.   Back in art software to give a spatial effect objects can then be inserted into various level layers. All layers can […]

What is Art?

art is the computer…the computer is art…art is the network…the network is art…art is!


I’ve connected with Myspace and Facebook. Wow, there’s lots of artist in common with me out there.

web site

i’ve updated the website with a fresh new “My Space” type background. The black color is a monitor energy saver. check out: to find out how and then check the site:


I thought why not create a blog and start writing about where you are creativelyà„€ Right now it’s the start of summerà„€ I’m out from Pitt Community college and really thinking about transferring to an Art college like the Academy of Art in San Francisco.
