The caratart Hotel is named after Bombolo, a founding member, initiator and mentor of our caratartclub.
In collaboration with the great and versatile artist Bombolo, we thrive to create an art world in the caratart Hotel Bombolo, whose flair will be decisively shaped by his works of art. Here you will find the unique lifestyle that reflects the charming artistic way of life.
What is the caratart club?
The caratartclub is an association promoting young and little-known artists.
caratart is a registered association promoting young and little-known artists. The idea for the promotion arose from passion and conviction to make young artists better known through intensive marketing and to make their works accessible to a wider audience. Thus, the association will use all possible marketing and communication measures to promote those artists. The publication and announcement of the artworks is free of charge for the artists. Basically, any artist can register and exhibit his or her artwork. The whole process is accompanied by experienced artists who volunteer their time to the association and act as mentors.
There is an intensive publication of 30-50 selected artworks. This selection changes regularly, so that new artworks are regularly added.

Quotes from an interview with Bombolo:
When asked how his artwork is created, he replied:
"I go to the canvas and have an idea like that. Then you try to put that into a form or onto the canvas and then it runs away. Then things emerge during the work. The great thing about painting is not the finished picture, but the process. The way there.
It always has something to do with one's own state of mind. And the exciting thing about painting is actually what happens to you during this act. You forget everything, time and space. You've suddenly been in the studio for ten hours, you haven't eaten anything and then you go out and you're completely exhausted."
What Bombolo considers the most important thing about 'being an artist' and what tip he gives to all young artists who are at the beginning of their career:
"That you have the freedom to do anything. So don't paint off, don't repaint. Try to put on the canvas, on paper or whatever medium you're dealing with internally. So be authentic. Try to paint things that touch you in your innermost being. Because then it's painting; everything else is painting off. That's what I would tell a young artist. Don't be distracted by trends and art magazines and what you see in museums. What is important, perhaps in the context of art history, is that every painting that someone paints or that I paint now, for example, already contains, I don't know, two million paintings that have been done before.
