This Sunday, Vondel CS will be the scene to a colorful exhibition by Dutch artist Pablo Lücker. I have been told that I can expect pink elephants, who become artists that fly around the world in private jets. Not to mention the tigers that play the saxophone on the moon. What a sight will that be! Attending this opening is therefore a no-brainer. Especially since there will be guest performances by other artists like Bas Kosters and Mano Bouzamour. To hell with lazy Sunday brunches. Art, drinks and music is my thing!
Last month, a beautiful hotel opened its doors in the city center. The INK Hotel is located in a building that was formerly owned by HP De Tijd, a Dutch magazine. I must have crossed it a thousand times, but sometimes an invitation for a tour and cocktails is what it takes to actually notice it. The INK Hotel has turned into a beautiful lifestyle hotel and is quite possibly one of the best places to work and meet for coffee in this area. All of us online entrepreneurs are the PRESSROOM's - the name of the lobby and restaurant - target audience, so think copper tables, soft couches and sockets to plug in our laptops all over the place. Halleluja!
Hell to the yes that I am Bloggernet's new art and travel blogger! From now on, you will read my columns and extra snapshots on their website. I am part of a dreamteam, with well-known writers from the fashion, lifestyle and travel scene. I will write about my favorite galleries and museums, as wel as bars restaurants and stores. Super excited and something that needed to be celebrated with a big lunch at Hartje Bos!
It has been a while since I posted something about an Amsterdam based artist, so it is about time I do so. Luckily, Daan Roukens released a video log of his work for Buutvrij: an advertising agency who's office was in desperate need of an arty make-over. Daan painted the facade of the building with his signature look, abstract and graphic. I have written about Daan before, so check out the other articles if you are interested in his work. Which I am sure you are, because Daan is one of the most talented Amsterdam based artists in my book. For those who can only stand a little bit of art, I recommend you to check out the video. Bet you want a Daan piece yourself.
