Went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art yesterday with a friend of mine to look at the "Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: Impossible Conversations" exhibition. The exhibition, magnificently organized by The Costume Institute of the museum, showcased the revolutionary work of Prada throughout many years o glamour and high fashion.
It was quite enjoyable and yet, my favorite part of it was the recorded conversation between Prada and Schiaparelli itself. As soon as you enter the exhibit, the audience is greeted by a floor to ceiling video installation of this humorous and insightful conversation. Undoubtedly, I spent most of my time concentrating on the video prior to checking out the showcased design work.
Alas, I made my way to the rooftop leaving the exhibition behind. The weather was perfect to be lounging up top and enjoying the new installation, "Cloud City" by Tomas Saraceno. I have attached some images to share, however, re sun was very strong and it was extremely bright to even look at what the images afterwards. So, here is my raw attempt to convey my visit to the Met.

Creating various art in custom spaces, it comes off as unexpected and adds on the element of surprise and excitement into the street art culture. It may be unnoticeable at first, but if you consider yourselves to be observant, you would undoubtedly spot this. So far, the artist has created twelve and has just begun in Los Angeles.
Can't wait to see the progression as it moves closer into other cities.

He uses old techniques such as etching and combines it with his sensibility for drawing. In most cases, he tries to gear his practice towards the more analog techniques using various tools including ink, pencil and aquarell.
As an talented, emerging artist, he is not only focused and determined, but he has found his greatest passion for illustration and book design.
