Kunstlabor - Art Lab

After thinking about it for months the two most active members of the Wednesday Sketch Club went to see the Kunstlabor.

The Kunstlabor is a temporary art project in Munichs Westend, by the MUCA - Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art: https://www.kunstlabor.org/en/project/ .

On the top two floors of the former headquarter of a supermarket chain 50 artists created an amazing project.

On 5000 square meters of discarded office floors the display of paintings, installations and graffiti will leave you gobsmacked.

The artists, urban and contemporary, used walls, floors, and integrated left behind equipment and furnishings. It made me think of the hundreds of office workers, busy bees going after their daily business and coffee stained carpets.

The exhibition will close on the 31st of January 2019 and the building will be conversed, most likely pulled down.

This is a definite must, go and visit if you can!

Wednesday Sketch Club

My Wednesday Sketch Club is still going strong. Since the course in May we have been meeting every Wednesday. We are usually between 2 and 4 artists meeting up for a chat&sketch. When the weather got colder and it got dark quite early we found a number of cafes, bars and public spaces to meet up and sketch.

A favourite of mine is the bar "404 page not found", which serves cheap drinks and offers a quirky, interesting interior for sketching. Unfortunately it'll close down at Christmas.

I really enjoy our meetings, they have enriched my life. My sketching has improved a lot and I have become a lot less critical.

Impressions of Vienna

Vienna sparkled. The sun came out, the old buildings shone, the air was fresh and crisp, occasionally scents of mulled wine wafting by.
The art made me happy, I drank countless cups of coffee, did some sketching and joined a fabulous birthday bash.
Then I walked and walked and walked....
