St. James's Park

There have been days when the weather was very nice lately, so me and my girls took some time to feed birds and squirrels and take some photos.
And a couple of pictures of London's most beautiful park by me:

Edvard Munch at Tate Modern

It's the last chance to see the Edvard Munch exhibition at Tate Modern this weekend, if you haven't seen it yet I strongly recommend you do. I have been there about three times since it opened (you can read about my previous visit HERE) and went for a farewell today, I can't even promise I won't cry when it ends. That's all because Edvard Munch is my favorite artist of all times, he is like the Edgar Poe of visual arts for me. Of course I purchased a print as a trophy after visiting this exhibition, it's "Kiss on the Shore by Moonlight" 1914.
The main reason I love Munch is because his paintings are very emotive, they appeal to much more senses than just sight, simple faces of Munch's characters are so striking! You can hear his "Scream" screaming and you can feel the loneliness, the kisses, the jealousy and all the other emotions he portrayed in his paintings, here are my favorite ones exhibited in Tate Modern:

And of course this self-portrait. If you stand right in front of it and stare you can see Munch's head growing out of your body in the reflection.
My dream is to go to Oslo to see the "Scream" and many other paintings but this exhibition is pretty good overall, so go see it while you still can!

Lullaby from "Lyrical Beats"

So here's a video of me performing "Lullaby" at the "Lyrical Beats: Celebrating 5 years of Rhythm & Muse" anthology launch. The way I filmed it is crap to be honest but after all it's sound that matters.
"Lullaby" is published on page 60 and the anthology is available on amazon. It features almost 60 poets and has some true pearls in it, really, I'm half way through reading it myself and that's the best poetry collection I've ever seen.

Pre-Raphaelites at Tate Britain

As I moved to Vauxhall which is pretty close to both Tate Modern and Britain I finally got myself a Tate membership + guest and the first thing to do after that was to of course take my mum who was visiting me to the Pre-Raphaelites exhibition. I was surprised that it was pretty big with many paintings brought from the US, usually I don't find temporary exhibitions to be that big and varied. There are about 7 rooms I think but my absolute favorite is the Beauty room. Actually I talked about Pre-Raphaelites quite a lot HERE and it happened so that I saw the place where "Ophelia" supposedly was painted before I actually saw the real painting. So I won't say much more, just do go see it, it is interesting, diverse and very beautiful. I also got myself a "Lady Lilith" print which is now up on my wall next to the mirror, but sadly I won't be using instagram for a couple of months now so I'll just show you the picture of the painting itself. I am now actually planning to collect prints of my fave paintings from exhibitions I visit and have them all over my walls.
