I am Alexandra Klobouk - artist, illustrator, author, storyteller

I am a storyteller, my tools are text and illustration. Sometimes performance or the combination of both. Depending on the content and context I´m a journalist, a translator, an agitator or seducor.

As everything we do is profoundly political so is my work. It´s on the side of those who want to bring people together and increase exchange and understanding.
Driven by curiousity and an admiration of people and their diverse ways of being in this world.
In my work I like to merges genres, combining storytelling, journalism, intercultural communication, travel sketching, music and various other disciplines.
My styles are as diverse as are my projects, it´s my approach that the rote Faden.
As artist and person I deeply believe in the power and neccesity of exchange and understanding. 
Music is a language that works beyond borders and
Singing and laughing is what brings people together. It´s plain and true.
