Brick Lane treasures

Fishing for some visual inspiration I found my-self at The Whitechapel Gallery. Today was the last day of Mary Heilmann’s Looking at Pictures. Apart from Little Mondrian (1985) by Matisse from Private Collection, nothing caught my attention for longer than a few seconds. But then again, abstraction was never my thing, unless in writing.

All the Eternal Love

Let’s go to Yayoi Kusama exhibition, at Victoria Miro. Let’s. What time shall we meet to avoid the never ending queue we faced last time. 10am.

The Photographers’ Gallery

If you are around Oxford Circus for the last days of SALE, take a break and pop to The Photographers’ Gallery for a cup of coffee and a glance at Saul Leiter works, a collection of shots from New York streets and fashion photography masterpieces for Harper’s Bazaar as well as some of his sketchbooks. 

A walk through China

There are little things I would wake up for at 5.30am Sunday morning, but Ai Weiwei exhibition at Royal Academy of Arts was totally worth the sacrifice. Due to the high demand for the last week the gallery was open twenty-four hours a day with talks, performances by opera singers and other activities.
