Fritz Helder: Performer, Musician, Dancer, Artist, Spectacle Eyeglass Wearer

If you haven’t heard of the name Fritz Helder then you’ll definitely know who we’re talking about when you see him. Trust us, you can’t miss him! This eclectic individual is a performer, musician, dancer, artist and eyeglasses wearer— and we are proud to call him one of our clients.

In an interview with The Image Interview, Helder welcomes us to his ‘Electric Leisure Land Studios’ where all the magic happens.

According to Helder, a few words to live by while in the studio go as follows: “It ain’t got no groove… If it doesn’t make you move… The groove is everything.”

He also opens up to The Image Interview when he says, “I feel so blessed to have found *a place* (scratches out ‘a place’) in music where I can express myself freely— Travel the world and tell my stories.” … “I still remember the day I fell in love with music… I was 5-years-old…”

On a more ‘spiritual’ note, Helder adds, “Being on stage is like food, like flying; better than any high you can buy!”

His ultimate dream involves nothing but music related experiences, “It involves a hydraulic stage... and me slowly rising up onto the stage with laser lights / pyrotechnics / and thousands of screaming fans...

Aside from music, Helder has a new obsession with late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and finds inspiration from the work of Jean-Paul Goude and the piece he created with Grace Jones. He also adds that  “Sitting front row, beside Karl Lagerfeld at the Dior Homme fashion show in Paris" was his favourite moment of 2013.

What’s next for Mr. Fritz Helder? A big move to London in 2014! And on that note, on behalf of the Spectacle team, we hope he picks up a few more frames before he jets on the plane!
