Ever since I first heard of the Indian festival Holi I’ve wanted to go. It falls in March and it’s a celebration to the change of season – everyone gathers on the streets and throw paint powder and water on eachother! Sounds like fun? It is.
I met a guy over breakfast this morning who invited me to come along with him and his friends, so I did. We took the train to Little India where we were met by Indian music and crazy festivities. Everyone were wet and covered in the colours of the rainbow. Everyone dancing, smiling and having a great time!
Back at the hotel, I didn’t dare to bring my camera to the celebrations for obvious reasons.
Merry christmas from me and brother! This was taken at our recent photoshoot and I very professionally added some xmas halos and hats in Paint afterwards.
We travel north in two days to be with our family during the holidays although they say the world is ending on the 21st. But if you ask me it has already ended. It ended when Coca Cola replaced water; Justin Bieber replaced Michael Jackson; and Facebook replaced friendship.
This kind of stuff makes it tickle in all the right places.
The photos are taken by Thor Lønning Aarrestad during the ARD*POP-UP Festival in Oslo last month.
For one night only – Sickboy & Word to Mother
Last night at Alexandra Palace – The Kills warmed up for the genius that is Jack White.
Alexandra Palace is not that bad of a venue as I’d heard – there’s plenty of space, good sound, and I like the fact that they have the other big room which they fill with big bars (no queue for beers!), seating and food stalls.
Quite keen on this one. Bit too hungover today and tomorrow I’m seeing Jack White+The Kills at Alexandra Palace but maybe Sunday then.
Another unmissable show by Laz – Lazarides Presents.
And although the list of artists is quite incredible, it is “only” showing in their Rathbone gallery space so won’t be anything like their last exhibition Bedlam.
Stand up for your rights and show your support for a better future at tomorrow’s march.
I think it’s important to exercise our rights and show everyone what we believe in, in the democracy we fought so hard for.
Here are my photos from last years TUC march: “A March For The Alternative”.
Moniker Art Fair:
White Canvas Project:
Last Sunday me and the bro went for a walk down to Shoreditch to check out 2012′s Moniker Art Fair at Village Underground.
The place was full of paintings, installations and sculptures, there were talks with people in the industry, live screen printing, and outside the gallery walls were painted by a bunch of great artists.
Then we were lucky enough to find White Canvas Project across the road, another warehouse full of live painting and great art.
Was a really good and inspirational day out.
