Street art in Paris

Street art in Paris 2

While I am writing my last post about Prague, which I consider the most important, I decided to post some pictures that I have been collecting in those 3 months since I arrived in Paris. My first plan was to talk about each artist individually, but I just decided to show it as a collective because(…)

To continue my series of 5 posts from Prague I will present one other great surprise. In the old Prague at Galerie Zlata Lilie I discovered the work of the photographer Milos Burkhardt, or just Burki.

Prague 3 – Sub-Culture 

Prague 3 – Sub-Culture  1

I was trying to buy tickets to watch Mozart’s Opera, specially composed for Prague, the “Operas of Operas” Don Giovanni in 1787 presented by the traditional Marionettes, when I heard “unlucky” that the presentation for that night had been canceled. So I went for a walk around the old Prague waiting for the time to(…)

Lennon Wall – The power of graffiti   0

One common wall in Prague has been called “Lennon Wall” since the beginning of 80′s, when some people started to make graffitis with John Lennon’s images and parts of Beatles songs. Lennon was a hero for the pacifist youth of Central and Eastern Europe during the totalitarian regime . Before 1989, when the government was communist, western pop music was forbidden(…)

Prague – UNFORGETTABLE…. 2

This week I had the pleasure to visit Prague, capital of the old bohemian region, now Czech Republic. That Prague is a wonderful city is nothing new. But I take the risk to say that it was the most beautiful city I have ever been. It is not a coincidence that several romancers had chosen(…)

59 Rivoli - An Artistic Revolution

59 Rivoli - An Artistic Revolution 0

A liberal space where artists show their work and share their lives. This is the 59 Rivoli. Located at the heart of Paris, a 6-storey building, with free entry that hosts 30 artists of different forms of artistic expression, cultural events and concerts on weekends. The true democratization of art, 59 Rue de Rivolli is ranked the third in Paris to receive the highest number of visitors to contemporary art. It all started with a simple formula: great intentions, will power and a lot of courage. That is what, in 1999, a trio of artists called the KGB (Kalex, Gaspard and Bruno) did when they occupied this building and called it ”Chez Robert, Electron Libre”. In 2006 the building was purchased by(…)
