Action Painting

Live action painting from Philippe La Ferrière at the opening of the "ma ville ma maison" Exhibition.

Philippe Laferrière was born in Toulouse, France, where he studied at École des Beaux Arts (1992-1995). He then studied History of Art and did a Masters Course on Classical Archaeology at the Aix-En-Provence University (1995-1999). The undertaking of a research on the Macedonian Tombs paintings brought him to Thessaloniki, where he worked as an art work conservator / restorer. Today he still lives in Thessaloniki, dedicating his time on painting and music.

You can check out more of his work at his blog here.

Goodnight Yerevan

It was a warm night of an even warmer day, first days of July 2010.

It was my last night in Yerevan, and I remembered the bus driver telling us, that "it's nice at the Republic Square at night, because there is a fountain"

So I went just to realize that hundreds of people were actually enjoying themselves with the classical music that was playing through the open air speakers, synchronized with the water springs and colorful laser lights.

So in this part of world, it makes sense, there is no beach you see. But there are central squares with fountains and warm people.

I just read at Wikipedia: "The Republic Square is the place where ceremonies and meetings are held. The statue of Lenin used to be located in the southern forehead of the square, but when Armenia regained its independence, the statue was brought down and replaced with a large TV monitor."

Goodbye Lenin, Goodnight Yerevan!

Foux du fa fa

A friend recently told me, that Dr Freud once said that people should either take therapy or travel. Well, since I’ve just turned 30, you can probably imagine that the depression that comes with that milestone, made me think about that quote….a lot!!! So here I am… à Paris, and that’s the way I saw this wonderful city.

Centre Georges Pompidou

Champs-Élysées - Arc de Triomphe

Musée du Louvre

Montmartre – La Basilique du Sacré-Cœur

La Défense - La Grande Arche

La Tour Eiffel

Les Jardins du Luxembourg

Le Panthéon

Île de la Cité - Notre-Dame

And obviously…l’amour

Now all I’ve got to do, is to think of a nice place to go when I turn 40!
