while i work, a little unused part of my mind goes wandering in the places i’ve seen. it’s just visiting, like a slideshow or like some sort of half dream.
here is my rather random top 10: it is very difficult to choose – there are so many beautiful things to see!
i traveled around belgium for a week but spent about half of it in ghent. i will start with a short random series of pieces i found around antwerp, bruxelles, bruges, kortrijk, lille (yes, in france) and oostende.
after a short and comfortable eurostar ride, i was ready to start checking things off my very full paris list!
paris is full of street art! i edited quite a lot and still ended up with the present plentiful selection. and i was not hunting them down: these are just pieces i came across.
the newly opened docks en seine, cite de la mode et du design, houses among a few other things, the musee galliera hors les murs.
chance had it that my stay in paris coincided for a short couple of days with that of an old friend from vienna. we had to meet, of course. and i thought germain cafe was a great place for an afternoon drink in saint germain.
i believe in buying things that will last you a life time. or at least for a very looong time. as the british would put it: i’m too poor to buy cheap. but that becomes more and more difficult in today’s trend-crazed world. fortunately, there are still companies that understand and abide by the principles of long-lasting...
roa is a ghent-born street art heavy weight whose signature is large scale black and white pieces depicting animals.
london has a cure for rainy weather: art galleries! 5. the wellcome collection has a series of current shows open to the public free of charge (just like most galleries). i like their tag line: a free destination for the incurable curious.
