After watching twice Visual Acoustics: The Modernism Of Julius Shulman, a documentary about his career and life as an architectural photographer, I would recommend totally this film and again I got surprisingly satisfied of his great simple beauty of mid 20th. century architecture and furniture designs. Lines, angles and different textures + the black & white contrast of his pictures.
Julius Shulman is renowned for some of the most iconic photographs in architectural history. His images seem to reveal the essence of an architect’s vision and capture the spirit of the eras in which they were produced. His distinctive camera angles produced portraits of hundreds of modern structures beyond Los Angeles. He has helped define Modernism for the general public through his photos.
Framing the California Lifestyle. Julius Shulman’s photographs of Southern California’s inventive modern homes promoted the careers of numerous visionary architects including Richard Neutra, John Lautner, and Pierre Koenig. Mid-20th-century homes come alive through Shulman’s compositions of carefully posed models set against streamlined furnishings and breathtaking vistas. Here you have some photo examples.

Today, on the 26th of February of 2014, Paco de Lucia guitarist has died. I would like to share with all of you one of his album called LUZIA. Many years trying to enjoy one of his concerts but always were sold out! Today as many days, I have been listening to him!
I’m in love with the art of this man. LISTEN TO THIS!
MAIKA MAKOVSKI a great smiling musician girl! Piano, electric guitar, spectacular voice and a band. Last Friday I had the pleasure to watch and listen to her last music piece DESAPARECER. Powerful voice and talent girl on the scenario. She started playing the piano, singing and dancing at the same time, transmitting positive energy with her big smile. You could feel that she was totally relaxed and secure with her performance. The band that goes with Maika is amazing…three artistic boys with a nice voices and good quality of playing (bass, guitar and drums).

Sasu Laukkonen Chef&Sommelier Restaurant cook speaks to us about “The Beauty of the Tasting”. During my last year in Helsinki, I had the chance to work in 2 Spanish Food Projects. One is Goola, an online food shop and Alambique Oy. Both wanted to bring the best tasting pieces of Spanish food to Finland. My last months, I have been visiting professional chefs in the city. One of them was Sasu Laukkonen. A creative, humble and marvelous cook! I knew him in one of my selling appointments and after 1 hour of conversation with him, I proposed to make an interview. It was amazing chat with him. His way of expressing and speaking about ingredients and food designs made me think more about the richness that we have in Spain. We have a high quality food and land. We are lucky!
Of course, everything has been possible thanks to my friend and best professional Jose M. Sanchez of Kinetic Pixels and my boyfriend, Tuomas Kuure.
Here you can watch and listen to the interview. Do it! It’s really relaxing and interesting chat! ;-)

HILO- Marre Moerel Designs & We*Do Gallery Bangkok
After living the whole Autumn and a part of Winter in Helsinki without watching snow and not feeling cold, now I am obsessed with white things. “The Witness in the White pieces” title reflects the feelings of my way of being some years ago. Marre Moerel last Ceramic Project, called – HILO- has transmitted something special, when Francisco Polo, the design curator from We*Do Gallery Bangkok, sent me the essence & pictures of Moerel Designer artworks, I felt very identify with these conceptual vases. The simplicity and silence of the body combines really well with the noise of the ceramic threads. I love to feel peaceful inside me and noisy-fighter outside. I like when I connect easily with an artwork. I recommend to have a look to Marre Moerel & We*Do Gallery webs. I’m sure, you are going to have a nice moment! ;-)
Francisco Polo, thanks for sharing with me your collaboration with Marre Moerel Designs. Of course, the best is to have the chance to touch and see the real artwork.
