The artist name KALEKO is a reminiscence to Mascha Kaleko, a jewish german language poet. She attained famous at an early age by capturing the athmosphere of Berlin in the early 1930s, before her writings were banned under Nazism. Her extraordinary sense of humor, cynical neo romantic tone and the ability for playing on words kept her work fresh over the years.
