Art-committed

I’ve strayed away from my blog for far too long. Getting myself back on track, this week I made an early visit to the Victoria and Albert museum in South Kensington; for a spot of mint tea in their exquisite café and to enjoy their vast collection of treasured art. The tearoom as always wrapped…

Tate, Thames, Tea

Another week, another gallery. This week I was greeted by the large scale walls of an old power station, The Tate Modern. The prominent landmark is located in a prime photography hotspot, Southbank, a stone’s throw walk away from London Bridge station. The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its grey toned architecture to…

Mad about Liberty London

Today, I paid a touristy visit to Liberty. Located on the corner of Regent Street. The unmissable department store is clear as a bell with its Tudor-mock frontage. I entered the large treasure box through the main entrance, welcomed by colourful blooms. Once inside I was immediately enveloped by the sweet aroma of the beauty…

Absolut-ly Fabulous

As of late all I’ve been doing is working on submissions one after the other. This latest submission is for Absolut. Artists were asked to design a premium paper bag, inspired by one of the seven iconic cities listed in the brief; Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul, Brisbane, Auckland and Dubai. My city of choice…

Day At

The British Museum. Like all my previous visits I take pictures in the main hall, breeze through gallery rooms and leisurely spend time browsing through the central shop. The shop is a fantastic place to find small segments from majority of the collections. Each table and shelf is filled with striking products; from Mummy pencil…

Hajj is a once in a lifetime religious obligatory for all Muslims. While thousands of lucky people are performing Hajj this year, I’m using this day as an inspiration…

Little black Diary

Back on the road. I visit Shoreditch every other week. Not only does it attain my creative cravings, it also treats my sweet tooth. There’s a delightful, little cake shop sitting sweetly in the corner of Spitalfields Market called Konditor and Cook, that sells yummiest brownies. My favourites the curly wurly brownie. If you’re like me…

Art in the City

Thinking outside the box, I wanted to create something different, in comparison to my previous Mandala’s. The theme on my mood-board was London. While my drafts twirled around iconic buildings,structures and skylines. My final design took a 360 turn resulting in straight, horizontal silhouettes. The hues of each landmark is an imitation of it’s closest…

Where Artists Go

I’m constantly on the hunt for inspiration. A necessity amongst artists. I’ve therefore, created a go to list of places that awaken my artistic passion. One place that is overflowing with ticks is Shoreditch, an arty district of Central/ East London. From Brick Lane to Columbia Road, Shoreditch is the best place for artists to…

Bare white lines

Sometimes staring at a blank canvas can be intimidating; scribbling ideas not going my way, inspiration running on zero fuel. When this feeling begins to creep up, I make it my priority to visit a museum or two. As I live in London, I’m spoilt for choices. The city features a wealth of inspirational museums,…
