Finland on my mind…

I ran into krista keltanen, a great photographer and blogger from Finland in one of those days I woke up missing far away lands that I visited and can’t wait to go back. I love her photography, it is full of honesty and character. As always nordic spaces make my heart smile and my eyes dance. This is just a taste of Krista portfolio. Enjoy!

Krista keltanen photo5I always thought of writing something on top of my headboard, the problem is what, I can see myself changing my mind all the time, falling in love with new quotes every day. Maybe a chalkboard as a headboard would be a better choice for my room. Actually I think that’s a brilliant idea! :)

Mei Xian Qiu’s Work of Art

On Saturday I was walking through an Art Opening in Los Angeles when I ran into Mei Xian’s work. At first the bright colors and the big canvases are what caught my attention and suddenly I was hooked. Her work is full of irony, meaning and poetry. Mei was born in Java, Indonesia from Chinese parents, they migrated to California when she was very young spending her life between the US and China as a parental attempt to not being westernized. You can see her life in her juxtaposed work of photography, glass and illustration. Beautifully displayed against the light making all the layers and colors come to life. Her work not surprisingly ended up in the pages of Living ETC, UK for the May issue. I really enjoyed meeting Mei; she was warm and eager to explain her work to me and eager to know about other people’s juxtaposed lives as well. Enjoy!
