This is why in his repertoire JOMI combines humorous scenes (humour has an important place in his life) with political, social and religious themes.
JOMI's artistic skill results not only in the extreme precision of his representation of characters, but also in the fact that he gives each one a soul, and it is this "animation" which always succeeds in fascinating his audiences.
JOMI was born in 1952 in Bous (Saarland, Germany) and studied with Marcel Marceau in Paris where he obtained his diploma, having successfully completely his studies (the only German to have achieved this). He has worked since 1981 as a solo mime artist.
In 1997, JOMI, who has been deaf from a very early age, joined the Executive Committee of EUCREA, the European Association for the Creativity of Disabled Artists.
His success in the course of his tours throughout Europe, North Africa and South America is a fitting reward for this well-regarded and highly popular artist who practices his craft with persistence, dedication, sincerity and optimism.
