Oh la la ....LOL !!?? But you tell me is this about amazing love against nature's odds or a deceiving complement with a possibly rather unfortunate ending :)?? You tell the story ... :)) artist @ffchw !
Artist @aykutmaykut Yes!! Keep dreaming big and don't let anyone tell you differently ... no one can stop imagination... "I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death." That was written by Robert Fulghum and look at the title of his book : "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts On Common Things... "
Welcome to all the amazing kids and teachers from the @kinderkulturmonat_berlin and the Allegro Elementary School at UN headquarters .... great project that the foundation is realizing with us : These kids are part of something we call "Willkommesklasse" "Welcoming Class" at the Allegro Grundschule this is a program designed to help kids to playfully integrate themselves in a community and learn the language easier with art and action :))!!! They were given little digital cameras and asked to take their favorite pictures and make a collage out of it ! How cool is it if your favorite picture is of your teacher !!! There are so many beautiful people represented here today : Syria, Irak, Egypt, Brazil, Turkey, Venezuela and Portugal .... truly all Nations under one roof ! Thank you for the great teachers and all teams that made this happen 🖤🖤🖤
: this artwork made out of knives by Farhad Moshiri to me represents the way we learned to constantly present the perfect picture to the outside the picture of a beautiful successful life. Especially work life. Meanwhile it's often a thousand daggers in your back that no one ever sees or will hear off. Especially when it comes to sexual harassment or verbal abuse ! It remains something unspoken, something private, something to be ashamed of acknowledging, something that will make you look weak or cost you your live .... Silence, although understandable at such terrible cost.... and we shouldn't ever support this silence. It is so important that if we see that someone we work with or for is suffering from any form of abuse to speak up and stand up for them as well. If we know and do nothing we become part of a horrible system. I have seen people use existing abuse toward one of their female bosses to chime in and use this horrible situation to advance their position or career I have also seen people accuse people of harassment knowing the reverse power this would have yet another form of abuse and verbal threat I have seen groups bond together to protect themselves and inflict even more misery and women taking the wrong side to protect themselves.... this is treacherous territory and a fast out of control spinning wheel that causes only hurt and destruction. There isn't a women I know who hasn't had experiences and yes :
I am so behind with posting amazing work especially work from my friends @telmomiel who are blowing my mind ! They just finished a new piece in the US but this one is so dear to my heart it's in Sweden and inspired by the old fairytale of "Nils Holgersson" the little boy who was lazy and unruly and ( bad idea ) mean to a little elf and hence the elf turned him into a little elf as well in return... than he meets the tame house goose Martin who wants to be a wild goose and fly with them to Lappland ... Nils jumps on his back and off they go... and the adventure begins ... I loved this story as a kid so much it's a true fairytale gruesome and harsh and yet somehow magical and will of course end well ... buy the book by Selma Lagerlöf (1907) it is worth every penny...
"Together is better.... closing the gap" and paint and painting together even more fun !! What a collab !!! By my dear friend @deih.xlf and @xelon.xlf in Spain super mega great event organized by @smarlopeztattoo and @house_tly so much Love 🖤
Beautiful one liner .... ! It's the perfect example: starting with one line never stopping knowing where you want to end up allowing room and anticipating imperfection to reach the final full picture ...artist is not known me ....
Love @valeriejhegarty ....whilst finally having time to go through my art visits and experiences of the last years I find amazing stuff ... this is from the Alternative Histories Exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum The Cupola House Parlor in 2013.
The artist's unique and signature site-specific artworks, address themes of colonization, Manifest Destiny, and repressed history.... this is only partially what was exhibited but what moved me the most. A Native American rug overgrown with grassroots and flowers and the portrait of George Washington dissolving ...across from it was a portrait of Pawnee Chief Sharitarish the two seemed to be referencing the historical conversations that were had at their time ... photo by the artist.
series by artists @icyandsot is available at the moment as a special free download via Amplifier.org ! Visit their insta for more detail.... Artist Statement : Join us with this campaign across all countries around the world !! Print these high resolution images and cover your cities with them. They can be printed the size of bus ads or subway ads, they can cover your front door or fill your front window, or be used as your social media profile image. Politicians have been saying that this is no time to talk about gun control, but this is EXACTLY the time to talk about gun control. Breaking the silence will require massive grassroots pressure!! Tell The world that “Thoughts and prayers” are not enough. We need real gun control. We don't need assault weapons and large capacity magazines for civilian use!!!
"Men build too many walls and not enough bridges." J.F. Newton ....This is the way to get your mind set straight and focused on a Monday morning for the tasks ahead. When a film like this one : drone shot made by @chopemdownfilms shows you a

I keep coming back to the work of fantastic Miss @caycezavagliastudio ....Stitched together one thread at a time maybe we are hanging on by a thread or maybe it's time to cut your own pattern pick your own fabric and customize your life one little stitch at a time in the ever-expanding, infinite embroidery of this Universe....and swipe further to see the endless intertwining loose and tight ends of the other side we are all hiding ...
