"Eternal Thirst"... Berlin here I come.




I have to say my goodbye for only a week, as I'm flying to Berlin tomorrow! This was all a total last minute kind of experience and I'm SO excited!! Can't wait to be thrown into a whole different background, atmosphere, air and alternative style. I believe this city has so much art to offer, so expect serious artistic influence and inspired works once I come back. I promise pictures and stories! :)
I desperately needed a break and some fresh air, and it began to show upon the "paper", or as a matter of fact on the carton box. A few days ago, right before I decided to book a flight, I had spent a few days sitting on the floor, as I took out the permanent markers I never thought I'd use again besides their usual task (to mark the carton boxes before moving to a new house.). I cut these boxes into smaller cardboards and painted whatever came to mind…not accidentally I painted boxed, rough graphic shapes with bold colors. "I live in a box". I drew a sealed, limited desert, a reconstructed world, rising through angles, squares and basically, not hard to spot, boxes.
So you see, my current creative thought process needs a short vacation, which in my case means to change my environment and location, even for a little while, inhale a different kind of art, colors, smells, patterns, textures, people… Berlin's art in this case. And actually, ten days after I land, London. Yes…CAN'T WAIT.
I know it's only for a week but I'm really going to miss the writing in this blog, and your lovely comments that always push my farther.:)
Promise me you'd have a brilliant creative week, set aside what you're doing, step outside and breathe that air slowly…let your mind drift a bit.
Luv,
me x
