I have to tell you that lately I have been really busy, so the blog was pushed to the side a little. No posts for a few weeks! Now I feel like I have to tell you what I have been up to in this busy period of time.
On the 20th of August I had an opening of my first ever bigger exhibition, together with two other artists, at Instituto de Cultura de Baja California in Tijuana, Mexico. It is going to be showcased there for one month, so if you get a chance, go and see it.
The exhibition presents my latest collection of ‘Textured Cities’, map art of the places I lived in or travelled to. Through these pieces I tell a story of my life, reflecting personal memories, observations and feelings towards each city or country. It is all expressed in detailed hand drawn and embroidered patterns, textures and colours.
This collection is a continuous body of work and I hope to see it greatly expanding over the years. Furthermore, I hope it will inspire the viewers to change their surroundings and seek new experiences, notice the smallest details in their everyday lives.
So let’s take a journey of exploration!
