I think I am a much better painter than an actor, said  Sylvester Stallone  (75), best known for his roles in the blockbuster films “Rocky” and “Rambo“, who opened his retrospective exhibition in the German city of Hagen these days. “Sylvester Stallone: ​​The Magic of Being.” At the Osthaus Museum, he exhibited fifty large paintings created in the last fifty years, and the exhibition will remain open until February 20.

It is a great honor for me to exhibit with the world’s greatest painters who are in the museum. Gallery life is actually a new experience for me, said the actor who started painting before acting. He discovered that as a kid, he sold his work under the name Mike Stallone on the street for five dollars to earn a bus ticket. He did not manage to earn the desired pocket money from painting, and although his talent was not recognized at the time, he never gave up the brush and canvas. He found fame and fortune in acting and turned painting into a lifelong hobby.

– Unlike the film business, which sometimes lasts two years and with five hundred people whose visions you have to rely on, painting requires lonely ‘fighters’. And that’s what fascinates me and draws me to that art, the actor told German magazine, Spiegel.

– I tend to show my true nature in my paintings, and it is full of action – really true. That’s how I am, Stallone told the DPA.

And this is not the first major exhibition for Sylvester Stallone: ​​in 2012 he exhibited at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. Petersburg, and two years later his works were presented at the Museum of Modern Art in Nice.

As he stated a long time ago, his painting expression was most influenced by the great American artists Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning, representatives of abstract expressionism, and he admires the Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci. But Stallone also found inspiration in his own films, so he exhibited several visions of his own portraits from the films “Rocky” and “Rambo”.

And for those wondering why a serious museum would exhibit paintings by an ignorant actor, the answer was given by Mathias Rastorfer, an art dealer who is also one of the organizers of Stallone’s exhibition in Hagen.

– Is famous art about art itself or about a famous person. That question was asked when we first exhibited the artwork of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld , and now every museum in the world wants to showcase his work. It’s the same with Stallone.

But despite the museum life of his paintings, most of them can be purchased for a relatively small price – from a few hundred dollars or a thousand, two up to forty thousand dollars as much as this versatile artist values ​​his 2019 Blue Rambo painting.

But for fans of his rich film career in which he played ninety roles, directed ten films, and wrote a screenplay for thirty of them, there is no fear because he is just finishing shooting two big movie hits – the fourth part of “The Expendables” with Jason Statman and Megan Fox and the third the sequel to the movie saga “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
