Merci @la__rouille .... the snow falling and the lady walking ..it’s night on Bülowstrasse...like Byron wrote :
She walks in beauty, like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light
which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less, had half impaired the nameless grace which waves in every raven tress, or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express, how pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow, so soft, so calm, yet eloquent, the smiles that win, the tints that glow, but tell of days in goodness spent, a mind at peace with all below, a heart whose love is innocent....
Massive New beautiful wall by @jaune_art finished !! Hundred of miniature stencils of crazy characters and friends making our Bülowhood even more alive and colorful.... very smart social commentaries if you look close and look UP .... plus now that we apparently opened the „Urbar Nation“ with out very own Barkeeper mister @preh.streetart the future is even brighter :)! Cheers to a great weekend !! And thank you @nikakramer for this beautiful picture !!
True words by @the_hula and a splendid mantra for this today : Friday :)) ! Weekend !! I will spend some of mine in Madrid and speak about UN at @urvanityart by invitation of Miss @tinaziegler from @monikerartfair !! Come say hi I am only there a day but a day has enough hours to share a tea or a smoothies or look at art together or @animalitoland orrrrr veggie tapas :)))
Berlinale and fashion week memories of the past weeks it was crazy inspiring .... all about chess games, power shift, rebellion and post apocalyptic dreams .... the king seems to be the most important figure on the chess board but the queen is the most powerful and able to strike with the most moves.... like my wonderful dear Terry Pratchett once said : • The queen always has to save the king it seems he can’t live without her but she can very well take care of herself •
I am a big fan of old techniques given and new approach like woodcuts and engravings ... here a wip from @teokon7 ....the medium and materials is so versatile like @sellfable for example or @jakeweidmann using plexiglass or marble or bone or @kustombike_engraver who uses metal but is is also so time consuming and extremely unforgiving ...check it out :)
Phoenix got some love by @nevercrew : „El oso plateado and the machine”. The main part is the big facade of the Heard Building we see here and then there's a horizontal wall on the other side of the building ( slide image ) and an indoor mechanism realized in the entrance of the building. All of them are conceptually connected together...inspired by the history of the building representative for progress and a species of bear that used to live in Arizona and that disappeared because of human behavior and presence. So the artists developed a concept around the idea of a communication that becomes tangible, 3-dimensional, and very shareable and visible. A communication that becomes interactive history almost a physical presence, and that is used to remember what happened, what humankind did cause : good and bad, and so generation can learn and raises awareness....
