For Drawing Days, a sort of art festival, I made a painting on a few windows in Ghent. Go here for more information and to see the work of all the artists! If you want to know more about the artwork I made, read further.
In March, I went to Berlin for four days with my boyfriend Niels. I had never been to Berlin before, but everybody always said how great, hip and artistic this beautiful city actually is. I had big expectations and the city didn't disappoint me at all. On the contrary, being an aspiring artist myself, I found the city very inspiring and a true hotspot for artists! And here I'm going to tell you why.
When I look at art, I notice that I feel the most attracted to psychological subjects or even mental illnesses. Maybe it's because you can not see a mental illness from the outside, in real life, so if you don't have a certain disorder yourself, it is difficult to understand what the person with the disorder is going through. Art helps you understand.
I would like to share some interesting art blogs I found while surfing on the internet. Maybe you already know (some of) them, maybe they're new to you. They're all completely different from one another, but to me they're all very inspiring.
I really wanted to show you Leonid Afremov's amazing art. I absolutely LOVE his work! It is colorful, messy (but then again very detailed), romantic and playful. You will instantly feel good after seeing his work, because he always manages to show how beautiful the world can be if you just pay attention to all the colors.
I am an aspiring visual artist, (screen)writer and filmmaker. On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
P.S. I am not a native English speaker, so my English is far from excellent. Sorry for that.
