Singapore

29 Jan

When I visited Singapore I knew it was above my overall budget for my trip, especially compared to the rest of Southeast Asia, but I just had to see it.  When he was a sailor, Joseph Conrad used to pick up his mail at the Fullerton Hotel. Somerset Maugham and Ernest Hemingway used to frequent the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel, which also invented the Singapore Sling. As a bibliophile, that was enough to peak my interest to travel here. Sadly, I couldn’t even afford a glass of water in the Raffles Hotel, let alone a Singapore Sling, but I did take a wander through the building.

Zagreb, Croatia

18 Dec

As a first entry I have to introduce, Ivan Meštrović, a sculptor I was drawn to simply because he made the statue of Nikola Tesla (a man born a century too early in my opinion, who was a genius.  But that’s fodder for another entry.). It was during our trip to Zagreb and Split in Croatia that we discovered this master sculptor, called “the greatest sculptor since the Renaissance”.

The image above is one of the first sculptings you’re greeted with at the entry of his museum in Zagreb, which happens to have been his home.  You’re welcome to touch and in my case, caress, every single one of his creations! That was an experience in itself.

He’s probably best known for the sculptings The Bowman and The Spearman located at the Congress National Gardens in Chicago.  The interesting thing about these two works is that the warriors on horseback are missing their weapons!

What I learned taking this photo:

Think about it!  You’re allowed to touch and caress the art work, giving you an opportunity to experience the flow the artist felt, perhaps, during its creation. How often does that ever happen?! You can experience it from any angle you want.  While doing this I realised that I love sculptings! I also learned that if art is executed with feeling, that feeling is also transmitted to the observer, breaking the barrier of time. For the first time I saw representation of the life of an artist that was a happy family man revealing that, indeed, artists can lead balanced, fulfilling lives. It was the first time I started to really “look” at art, to appreciate it.  And, his work was even popular with one of my all time favourite masters, Auguste Rodin, who’s exhibit we’ll be seeing on December 06th at the Palazzo Reale in Milan.  Ooooh, can’t wait!

Love this dress. So abstract and symmetrical. I feel like I am wearing art. I love the mirrored sculpture in the background.

Rome, Italy

5 Oct

Look up!

In Rome I found that if you don’t look up, you might miss something wonderful. Every detail to make the city as beautiful as they could was taken into account by the Romans. There were many street corners which had little to big paintings, such as this one, quietly decorating Rome, there for those that pay attention. Angels were placed at the base of the painting, graceful creatures in the amidst of the traffic of cars and scooters, smoke from cigarettes, the chitter-chatter of pedestrians and the street sweepers. Now, why can’t all cities be as lovely as Rome?
