Burberry Makers House x Henry Moore : unfolding inspiration and process

Fashion Inspiration, London, Material Culture March 12, 2017

During the recent London Fashion Week in the end of February, I have had a chance to visit Burberry Makers House , where the showcase of the inspiration, the process and design references behind the brand’s second see-now-buy-now collection are exposed. Makers House was opened as a fashion exhibition, offering the public the chance to celebrate the new runway collection freshly after the show, alongside the work of Henry Moore, the iconic artist that inspired it.

Skin / Structure : On Top of Tate

London, Visual Inspiration September 3, 2016

It is on the top of new Tate Modern that I visited on the opening week in Southbank Area of London which I surprisingly discovered this hidden palette of Tate’s beautiful brutalist skin. I took some film images, which resulted as a great colour blocking inspiration and geometric composition, perfect for Pinterest.

As we are not drone and never will be, seeing from the bird-eye viewpoint makes me feel more free and floating. The squares and lines of the industrial facades, encouraged by the right mix of colour, are strangely calming. Modernism dream in this Concretopia society.

Brutalist / Barbican / Botany

London March 15, 2016

I have long been wanting to visit  Barbican Conservatory , London’s hidden oasis in the heart of the city but never get to go as this beautiful landscape only open on Sunday. And finally last Sunday was perfect because my friends were visiting so we went there for a lazy afternoon walk.  This conservatory is the second biggest in London and  it is quite calming to see the Barbican Centre’s brutalist architecture inhibits such thousands species of tropical plants. Strolling inside this landscape can make you feel a bit sci-fi vibe, out of future where the city was already abandoned and the plants were left free. I saw many sketchers there, drawing botanicals and buildings on their pads. Some of them were coming alone, and some were from the meetup groups. Would love to come here to paint when the weather is nicer, meanwhile I am waiting forever for spring.

Peaceful Chiangmai : Floating in the Mountain

Destination, Walk February 1, 2016

Some photographs from my stay at Mountain Float, a floating resort located in Mae-ngud Dam, Chiang Mai, Thailand. Surrounding by mountain and water, The temperature was perfect, unexpectedly cold at night around 11 c in early January. The sun started to appear from behind the silhouette of the hills, shining in subtle shades of colours. The fog evaporating over the surface of water brought a sense of peace and calmness. Monks from the village came in for the morning ritual, as well as fishermen floating quietly on ther boat. A perfect place to break from traffic and smoke in ever-growing Chiangmai downtown, I guess.

Some photographs from a walk in Fletcher Moss park & botanical gardens when I visited my friend in Manchester in December. It was our lucky day as the rain was not falling and there was a bright shining sun. People walking with their dogs and even horses. This trail was surrounded by these beautiful high trees that almost cover English grey-blue sky.

High trees always remind me to be humble
If you listen close enough, they are whispering
that we are smaller than nature.
