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.

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.

Walk in London : Brixton Village

London, Walk February 11, 2015

ย่านบริกซ์ตัน (Brixton) ทางตอนใต้ของกรุงลอนดอน ในหลายปีก่อนนั้นอาจฟังดูน่ากลัวและไม่ควรไป เพราะขึ้นชื่อว่าเป็นแหล่งค้ายาเสพติดและย่านอันตรายที่ควรหลีกเลี่ยง เราจึงไม่เคยพบเห็นหนังสือไกด์บุ๊คเล่มไหนแนะนำที่นี่เป็นแหล่งท่องเที่ยว แต่คงต้องคิดใหม่อีกครั้ง เพราะปัจจุบัน Brixton ได้ถูกพัฒนามาเป็น ย่านการค้าแห่งใหม่แห่ง South London แล้ว
