street art

Such an impressive work created by Parisian illustrator, Ugo Gattoni. The original is a 5 meters long drawing of the streets of London! I would love to see that. The book is published by Nobrow Press,  you can find more images and information about the book there. Or watch the BICYCLE video.

Inspired by the 2012 London Olympic Games, young artist Ugo Gattoni intricately illustrates a cycle race through the streets of London. From elite athletes to cycle couriers, commuters, bankers, delivery boys, mums with kids, youths on stolen mountain bikes to fashionistas and hipsters on fixed gear bikes – pretty soon you will realize this is no ordinary road race!

The street festivals have started in Delft. Over the weekend it was the street art festival, Mooi Weer spelen one of the largest, vibrant, very colourful free festivals in DelftSaturday turned out to be a gorgeous summer day, everyone excited to get some sun, vitamin D…And you could not go wrong taking photos – perfect blue sky all around and everyone was happy to pose for the camera.

There was dance performance, people dressed in original, funky bright outfits…and there was a wedding among the crowd…see the beautiful car in the photo (top right). Funny thing is, i just noticed while i was editing the photo that i know the couple! It’s an English expat and his newly Dutch wife, aaah, how romantic.

The Festival is a two-day event over the weekend and it is 25 years old! I yet to go through the Sunday, second day of the festival photos… There was definitely more to see on that day but unfortunately it left me amazed (again) how quickly the weather changes over night in Delft.

I keep meaning to go back to this exhibition. Last time I was there, it was an overcast day so I didn’t hang around for too long. These enormous sculptures by various Chinese artists are displayed along lovely Lange Voorhout, The Hague till September 11, 2011

The exhibition is timed to coincide with the first Chinese emigrants setting foot in the Netherlands 100 years ago. This year’s event is presented under the title The Hague under the Heavens, referring to the Chinese Tian Xia or All under Heaven, one of the cornerstones of the Chinese Confucian world view.

This one is my favourite, its massive and so intriguing to everyone!

Artist ..: Yue Minjun, Flexible latitude

Say aaaah….yes, that is me in the photo!

Artist ..: Cang Xin, Hitting things just with Qi

Indeed its made in China! A 5 meters high red dinosaur, an enlargement of a toy figure. It refers to the Chinese mass production.

Artist ..: Sui Jianguo, Dinosaur amidst the wind


The object on show here is an old cardboard packing box with worn labels, battered and crushed at the corners, revealing its history.

Artist ..: Jiao Xingtao, Gift from Heaven

Still need to experience the big lamp during the night.

I need some positive, energy boost! But before I head outside to enjoy the sun, i‘m sending you happy faces from around the world… The little girl (so full of life, with her camel friend) cracks me up every time i see the photo… How about the boy?! So stylish and charming. What a cutie!!!

Thought theyll make you smile!

Back from busy beautiful Paris. Its been a while since i taken sometime to write and share photos with you. I thought I’ll stay away from the typical iconic shots, but its hard not to guess this is Paris…Hehe. I was there for my 3rd time to meet my family from Sydney. So it was a different kind of visit to Paris…did lot of walking, eating, talking (its been 5 months since I’ve been hanging out with my family) so of course it was really good to be there…. Also I had the chance to meet up with my lovely friend Natalie who lives in Paris. So I’m happy to say I got to experience more of the “french” culture, the atmosphere. It’s an overwhelming city Paris, to say the least. It’s very busy, lot of tourist around – specially at summer time. There is soooo much to do and see, so no doubt I’ll be going back there soon.
