Street art

We are hired as private drivers, part-time, usually involuntarily & unprepared – I may not have told you that! It’s various activities, dinners, gigs & other we are asked to drive our boys to, and it’s unpredictable. To put it nicely – we get to see places we otherwise wouldn’t. Different suburbs, neighbourhoods & areas where they usually meet with friends.

So in other words, inspiration from the streets today – it’s not about aesthetics, it’s about peoples creativity. The way people can change the street scene, not through architecture but by being ingenious in a simple, down to earth-way. What’s exciting is that it can turn up anywhere & unexpected. It makes me think about the person behind & the reasoning. I call it street art, where others might look at it as clutter or graffiti…perhaps.

Art can be & mean so much, not just something you can hang on the wall, although I would consider it to be good enough, of course. I just have to like it, or else no matter the cost, it would be something I would give away to someone that appreciates it more than I. But the great thing about art is that it can be adapted to what we want it to be. It’s about each person’s experience. What you read into the artwork, what it means to you or possibly what its worth, in one way or another.

I would not like to dispute all the different opinions since that adds to the excitement around art. For myself, I prefer the simple & predictable variety. I am after all, an ordinary woman :)

Daily inspiration, food art

It’s sometimes hard to define the difference between photography, art, commercials & food styling. What’s art – a constant question but as usual, it lies in the viewer’s experience. As simple as this is, I find it graphically appealing.

There’s a great deal of oversized framed photos & posters on various inspirational sites. In the right place it certainly makes a difference. In other it looks too cramped to my liking. But again taste is so different so I’m not having an opinion around that. If you don’t want to go for a big, bigger design, you can create that feeling with several small – that hangs in more rows such as one of the images below.
Some people prefer plain or empty walls while others want to fill them with all kinds of art. Either way, it works just fine with either or. But today, you get to put up with a lot of bigger options. Let’s see what you think!

Wall art / 187

Hej my friends,

What do you prefer to put on your walls, real art, artistic art, posters, own artwork, commercial stuff, beach finds or  - maybe nothing at all…which this post isn’t going to be about. At least not this time :) Anyhow, the essential thing is to actually chose things that you like, that gives you a pleasant feeling & makes you happy inside. After all, those images, photos, posters & art, sits on your wall day after day. They reflect your style, taste & personality but above all your everyday life.

My sons have different taste & prefer to display their “art” in different ways too. One has everything on the wall, without any space between while the other one has his things on the floor, leaned along the wall. Many of the things we have chosen at home is associated with memories from travels, friends & events. Strangely enough, we don’t have any photos of any of the family or relatives, which seems to be very common elsewhere. It’s not only common but also very personal & homey.

I was standing in a queue the other day when a guy were paying for his stuff. Inside his wallet he had a photo of his girlfriend, which made me think about why I did not have any photos of my darling & my beloved sons. Neither my husband have it. It’s worth thinking about maybe, who knows. But for now, let us reflect on our choice of art on the walls at home. Here’s some inspiration…
