London street art – Shoreditch

Stepping out of the London Coffee Festival, I could not resist wandering through colourful Shoreditch. It has always been the core of the street art world, even more so now. To the point that I sometimes wondered whether the pieces were indeed camouflaged in the urban jungle or whether the buildings were starting to be the ones hiding behind all these murals! A few pictures of this safari:

From Paris with love

These days, my steps always seem to take me back to the Canal Saint-Martin. Time has a different essence here. No one ever rushes. Is it the soothing quality of walking along the water, the succession of romantic bridges and locks, neo-bistrots, trendy cafés, dream-like bookshops, poetry on the walls, between geometry of vintage tiles and street art blooming everywhere… More pictures and our favourite foodie places here.

Berlin – street art

Berlin is like a treasure chest! Never had I seen such a concentration of street art before. I really wanted to see some of JR’s giant portraits but wow – just walk around Mitte and make a detour via Rosenthaler Straße… Here is a small selection for the fans!

The magic world of Nantes island

A stroll on Nantes island is like entering another dimension entirely. Such a mix of fascinating architecture  – sometimes modern, sometimes surreal, some other times inherited from an industrial past. And yet, there is so much space, the sky always so present, almost no traffic, such a sense of peacefulness, wild flowers. Even street art blooms on the wall. You will meet the colourful cat of La Fabrique and the giant elephant walking around, splashing passers-by, machine of wood and metal. You can dream on the carrousel des mondes marins, fantastic fishes and flying shells inspired by Nemo… or throw a few balls around the basketball tree. Further on, Buren’s rings are framing the clouds. There a few cafés at the Hangar à Bananes, you could enjoy a Flower Power beer, infused with petals and just sigh in happiness…

La Fabrique, Nantes

Artistic laboratory – so perfectly named. Here are simmering a thousand culturel projects, concerts, exhibitions, ideas of all sorts. The architecture is fascinating indeed, metallic lace, ribbons of red plastic, a glaxy of folding and unfolding triangles, like a cocoon about to open up. Here, a truck has been encapsulated, there a giant cat crosses a concrete wall, further on, an urban garden playing on recycling. Extraordinarily inspiring.
