born    1 9 6 9

Long before studying computer science, Nonhoff started as a musician. He was saxophonist, singer and songwriter in several bands. From writing songs & lyrics it was a short step to poetry and storybooks. 

After finishing his studies he started his solo shows. He created his own comedy shows and performances as comedian and storyteller. He won several awards and performed his shows worldwide. The show “a star was Björn” was directed in cooperation with well-known clown Django Edwards. He was invited to the Shenzen Comedy Festival in 2004, where he performed as main act and was the only European artist invited.

Nonhoff published and designed several books. As an IT architect and agile coach, he is driving digitalisation in a dax30 company. He is a self-taught artist with an atelier near Munich.  His art is inspirational and powerful and was selected into several exhibitions by professional juries. Nonhoff opened this art website and also sells part of his artwork on https://www.etsy.com/shop/paperartwork

His art book collections and video production were chosen by a jury to become part of group gallery shows. He is active in an advisory council of the art association Ebersberg.

Vision

The Art I do exists to awaken and inspire. It puts the viewer on its own journey, forces him to reflect and develop his view of life. Seeding an inner Momentum for a movement beyond habits and borders.

Art is an experiment of communication, a combination of direction and impact. it starts deep down as an inner journey and grows for happiness. Art should reach as far as possible, build bridges and invite to enjoy the beauty and mystery of this world.
