Who really owns street art?, article by Jacob Pramuk
I went yesterday a bit to Marina Romea (Ravenna area, Italy) to spend a day on the beach. Considering this super sunny wonderful month full of everything but sun, today turned surprisingly well. So, that got me thinking about the girl things: since there wasn’t much sun before, we’re more less all now here on the beach, and we are forced to be in our bathing suits - completely white-skinned (excluding few lucky ones that naturally have those sinful olive skins).
Before I came to live in Italy, I always thought that all Italian girls are the same: beautiful, handsome, tanned, and well-groomed. Well, the rest of the world, you can now sigh in relief: they’re not, at least not any more or less in comparison to any other country. Anyway, I haven’t seen many of those beautiful ones yet, so, as I was saying, it got me thinking: how to stay good-looking on the beach?
Guardian art critic Adrian Searle ventures through the weird and wonderful landscape of the world’s foremost art festival
Speaking of Biennale, a fresh and funny interview with Guardian’s art critic Adrian Searle.
I still didn’t have the chance to check out in person what’s up at this year’s Venice Biennale, but the older I get the more I think that this event means exactly the same thing for art as Olympic games do for sport.
Just remember how Biennale did wonders for so many artists during these 100 years.. and still, the world keeps telling us there’s no success after 30. That might me true in rare cases, but luckily not if you’re an artist, doctor, or may I dare to say, anyone whatsoever. The hell with the odds, the will is what counts.
Although, I must notice that recently trends have given way to the youngsters: the art world has currently been talking like crazy about Massimiliano Gioni, the curator of Venice Biennale. Definitely young for the art world, with ideas to match.
The first chance I get I will write a bit about the artists that I’m curious to see during this edition, but for now a tip while you’re in Venice - I know it’s Biennale and all, but DO NOT miss the chance to see Manet’s return to Venice @ Palazzo Ducale: you will be able to see “Venus of Urbino” and “Olympia” side by side!
Going back to Biennale, I will check out some more artists but I think this is more than interesting introduction to the art market movements around Art Basel. Stay tuned~!
tumblrbot asked: WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO VISIT ON YOUR PLANET?
I don’t have a place, it is more like a list!
In love with this song since yesterday.
Saw the movie couple of days ago, very sparkly, scintillating, A list crew, A list soundtrack, however if you are in it for the story do not expect too much. Not too closely related to the book though, but all in all I can say that I quite enjoy it. It is beautiful to watch, and although not all of the characters are super well-developed, the actors did more than a fair job.
Definitely one of the movies that are a must see in every case, I just cannot understand why Luhrmann is so scared to keep the camera longer than few moments on the shot.
Anyway, Lana Del Ray did a very nice job with this soundtrack. Florence and the Machine made some good stuff too, be sure to check it if you have time.. I heard many people complaining about this and that, but let’s face it, you can hardly be too wrong with a project of such profile.
Coming home from work, I realized I really miss my dearest friend N with whom I’m the proud owner of the previously mentioned blog. However, since we made the password that probably has no connection to anything and it is most likely retarded in its content, I cannot remember it. Before you ask me further, let me stop you: Yes, I also have no idea what is the password of our email so I cannot reset it.
So, until N finishes with her long and tiring day at work for the Guggenheim collection in Venice (as you know there’s Biennale in progress so you can imagine how much fun must be being an intern in such moment), I have nothing left but writing here. I miss you, you idiot!
p.s. Advice of the day: Eat some marshmallows, they’re cute!
p.p.s. I strongly advice not to eat more than 5, like I just did. They’ll probably stop being cute somewhere after the 3rd.
