Picasso at the grand palais - PARIS


Pablo Ruiz Picasso is regarded as the greatest artist of the 20th century. He is the author of a vast number of works in different formats (paintings, sculptures, prints, ceramics, etc.). Moreover, he was able to take the different artist trends of his time to their ultimate expression, on which he left his own indelible hallmark. Picasso was born in Málaga, Spain.
He lived and worked out of Paris for the larger part of his life , but due to his strong Spanish roots, he was deeply influenced by strong figures of the spanish art world like, Velazquez, El Greco etc.
We see a great of presenting the works in this exhibition in Paris where his early classical style work is strongly juxtaposed against his own works. The exhibition has cost a lot due to the cost and the worht of the insurance of the invaluable works being held under one roof here at the grand palais in Paris.
I advice everyone who live sin Paris to definitely take a look at this expo.

Fashion outside Paris

This is completly my point of view.. and for everyone else is France I don't mean to be mean ...
But honestly speaking there is NO fashion outside Paris... (Cannes being the other place).. and believe me i've traveled arounf France.. even in the bigger cities.. its a real shame..
people are so .. so.. casual.. for me thats just inexcusable...! we all have to dress up at least once in a while..
and those who are dressed well.. are .. again i'm sorry.. but so last year..?! not even mast season..
infact people outside of the city of Paris are mudane in their dressing and definitely not adventurous at all..

this is just something i had to say..

Bridget Riley

"For me Nature is not landscape, but the dynamism of visual forces - an event rather than an appearance - these forces can only be tackled by treating color and form as ultimate identities, freeing them from all descriptive or functional roles." Bridget Riley.
Not very well known in France, one of her first retrospectives in Paris at the Musée des Arts Morderne, her works are exhibited here till the middle of September.
From her works, we can see that they are highly patternised and definitely fall under the genre of optical art (illunistic).
One of my personal favourites... if you are in Paris this summer be sure to have a look.

For those of you who love to be bronzed but want to keep within your budget, this bronzer from
'Australis' is what you need and what you should be looking for! $11.95.
A point to keep in mind, this seems to be a product preferably to give an already tanned skin tone a great shimmer.

Model Co :This bronzer is by far a product winner prices at 58$ , it comes in an ultra ultra slim casing and a large sized mirror, for all your bronzing needs. It has a great colour tone, not too orange and not too tan with just the right amount of dazzle in it.
Happy bronzing!!

FuNkY fLeX

What i called funky...!!! they all look so trashy yummy .. lip smacking....
*ahem* excuse - me... moving on to the fashion...
definitely cool... smell the testosterone in the air dont you... sporty.. flashy.. and the look of your every day guy from the hood..
love it!


In my opinion , very chic, very monotone with splashes of coral and hues of sun touched pinks(very much like the Louis Vuitton collection for men!?!)hmmm..??
either way a very wearable couture collection.. i wonder if Karl is loosing a bit of his creativity, or maybe making couture more commerial.. the revival of couture... maybe
looks like gaultier and galliano creative ones left in the field...
