I’ve recently come home from a little trip to Spain where I seen the most awesome Michael Jackson tribute I’ve come across yet.

I’ve no idea who the artist was but Spain’s buildings, tunnels, shutters (almost anywhere with a flat surface or side wall) are littered with this type of graffitti.

It called out to me when I seen it and since I have decided to start writing a blog again, I thought I’d share.

Hope you love it, more to come shortly.

GWAC yeah.

Taken By Trees

I’ve recently come across Taken By Trees, solo project of Victoria Bergsman.

You may recognise her unique voice as the former leadsinger of The Concretes. Victoria, as well as being one of the three founding members, was singer and songwriter for The Concretes for 11 years until deciding to leave the band in 2006.

You will probably also recognise Victoria’s voice from one of the biggest and most popular songs of last year, Peter Bjorn & John’s “Young Folks” (yes, the one with the whistling). Bjorn Yttling helped Victoria to produce the album “Open Field”.

Her album “Open Field”, released 2007 on Rough Trade, her voice is delicate and beautiful and overall it’s a stunning record. She recently released the single “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, a Guns & Roses cover.

I’m kicking myself for missing her at Le Weekend Festival in Sitrling last month.

A 3D Exploration of Picasso’s Guernica

“Guernica” is the title of the painting by Pablo Picasso, depicting the Nazi bombing of Guernica, Spain, in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War, in which roughly 1600 people were killed.

Follow the link below to watch the video by German artist Lena Gieseke. “A 3D Exploration of Picasso’s Guernica  was her thesis at University of Georgia, where she achieved a Master in 3D Computer Animation.

At first, I felt that 3D exploration defeated the whole purpose of a cubist painting, however, after watching it again, I’ve changed my mind. I feel it provides an opportunity to view the painting from a unique perspective, revealing aspects that would normally stay hidden. If you watch it and don’t like the idea of cubism in 3D, then I suggest you check out some cubist sculpture. 

Check it out.
