Anish Kapoor in Brussels

Yes, that’s right!

Anish Kapoor is having an exhibition in the Gladstone Gallery, very close to the metrostation Louisa. I heard the mayor of Brussels saying last month that he wants a work of Anish Kapoor to be the center piece of the renewed Place de la Brouckère (known from the Coca-Cola bill board), but I didn’t realize that he was having an exhibition in Brussels. I love his artwork so I was quite excited when I saw the announcement!

Who is he?

If you don’t know him, don’t worry. You might have seen a picture of his work Cloud Gate in Chicago, also known as the Chicago Bean. Never heard of it?  Then this is all you need to know: Anish Kapoor was born in India, but lives in London since the 70’s. He is known for his mirror-like sculptures that make you feel like you are going to fall over.  He plays with the feeling of dept and shows several dimensions. Let me show what I’ve seen at the gallery (click on the pictures for a bigger image).

Let’s start this blog

Hello everyone!

2015-04-01 19.18

Just a few days ago I suddenly had the idea of starting my own blog. I’ve been following some blogs for a few years now and I’ve learned so much from them. I love art, beauty and fashion and when you live in Brussels, there is a lot to tell about these things!

I have some articles in mind about up-coming art events and a few of my favorite shops in Brussels. You will also read more personal things like books I love,  recipes I discovered or  funny things I’ve spotted in the city. And once I have a better camera maybe I will do a few tutorials. Lots of ideas boiling in my head at the moment. If you have any requests, please let me know.

First article is coming soon…
