the work of a lifetime

this is old news but today i finally managed to see Yannis Tsarouchis 1910-1989 exhibition at Benaki Museum and it was b e a u t i f u l, two floors dedicated to his immense work of life.
The different thing about him is that he wasn’t just a painter but a multifarious intellectual that painted, wrote poems, worked for theater and cinema and contributed to the culture of a century, oscillating between east and west and transforming this blend of cultural elements into art.

you’ve all seen his famous sailors and bicyclists..


..but i half secretly took a shot of this hand-drawn fan that dedicated to actress Katina Paksinou..

..and of this cute little set design model for Debussy’s music composition


To those of you last minute visitors i ‘d suggest to hurry up, the exhibition ends on the 14th of March.

this is what it’s like

sunday’s love song by Arthur Russell

I cannot describe you how does this song make me feel, i want to scream the chorus out loudly and stand still with my hands open and that’s the only thing i’m able to do under its grasp¬†“and love is sweet like that”.

As a friend says.

make some room

for my new collectable Prada book!

it was sent to my office this week, weighs more than 3 kilos and needs to find its own space in my house. No bookcase needed since i intend to take a look at it every day until i absorb all the information. it includes the history of the fashion house, pictures of the products and the workspaces, the history of the collections, Prada projects such as the Prada Transformer, campaigns and numerous charming things to know, illustrated in 700 pages of fine paper.

as it is written by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli on the introduction:
The purpose of this book is to retrace and represent the multivalent aspects of Prada: from fashion to communication, from the pursuit of excellence to technological advancement, from architecture to art.

and by placing them on my desk i get the chance to show you the hard work i did with that collage a year ago, made by boarding passes and maps and tickets and memorabilia from my trips- i don’t know if i love this most or the shoes..
