Here and There … Art Jamming

DSC_0013

Last Friday, my ladies organized a 1-month anniversary party for me. We decided to go for some art jamming.

We went to the AURA Art at Kwun Tong in Hong Kong. It is a workshop for art-jamming, cafe, gallery and art store. AURA Art offers different kinds of art jamming, such as Chinese   Painting Jam, Acrylic Painting Jam and Print Painting Jam. This time, we chose the Acrylic Painting Jam since we haven’t tried before.

To start the jamming session, the coach asked us to select some photos/ illustrations/ drawings to copy. I selected red floral painting and started to outline and paint.

Well! I am obviously not born to be a painter! LIKE TOTALLY NOT A PAINTER MATERIAL!

I tried to draw the shape of leaves and flowers. After I realized that I would never draw something resemblance to the sample, I made it freestyle – some capitalized words and background. Red color sounded furious and energetic, let’s use that! Oh god, I could not control the brushes and mix the color at all. No matter how hard I tried, I still could not mix the colors that I want, neither could I outlined the shapes in details.

After 2 hours of hard work, here is my masterpiece. “OH!!” alerts you when you first step into my home, which brings you welcome and energy! Such a contemporary art and bullshit!

Summary: I did enjoy this art jamming session. It was so much fun! We all realized how terrible our art DNA are. Now, I really really admire those who can paint. I love our friends who are painters.

Throwback Thursday … Reminiscing the STAR

The day that David Bowie passed away, for me, was not a farewell. It’s just he is going back to the space and join the other legendary. I guess he must be singing with Freddie now.

David Bowie was truly an innovator and rebellion, not only in his early age – breaking the boundary of fashion, as a leader to break the boundary of GENDER, as a role model who lead the cultural change. Even in the later age, he never stops the innovation.

While Paul McCartney is still struggling about how to get adapt to the new 21st century with Kanye West. David Bowie had been leading and sculpting the future with the young generation. He just never stopped innovating. That’s something already embed in his gene.

Life is simply about innovation. That’s it.

Throwback Thursday … Drive Darling

This is the song that you can hum immediately when you hear it for the first time.

Drive darling, drive darling, drive darling, drive darling, drive.

The acoustic guitars are already enough to leaverage the timbre of whole songs. Lyrics and melody are just so comfy and make-sense. One thing that impressed me immediately is the bridge. The contrast successfully makes the difference and make you alert of the music. Lovely.

P.S. Music Video is so artistic. At least, they wear enough clothes instead of being almost naked in winter.
