Biography   Blinky Palermo


Blinky Palermo was the third name taken by a troubled artist born as Peter Schwarze in Leipzig in 1944, in what would shortly become East Germany. He and his twin brother, adopted as infants by a family named Heisterkamp, were then given that name. The family soon moved to the West German city of Munster, where Palermo's adoptive mother fell seriously ill and died when the boy was fifteen.

The artist chose his new name, Blinky Palermo, in 1964 when he entered Joseph Beuys's class at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf. Beuys told him that his second name, "Peter Heisterkamp" would not work in the 60s art world. Palermo's friends had joked that he looked like Frank "Blinky" Palermo, heavyweight fighter Sonny Liston's manager.
