ART | EXPO PABLO LÜCKER AT VONDEL CS

22.5.15


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!

DESIGN | INK HOTEL AMSTERDAM

17.5.15


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!

HOTSPOT | CELEBRATING AT HARTJE BOS

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!

ART | BUUTVRIJ X DAAN ROUKENS

10.5.15



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.
