Garden sketching

If you could see how our little garden is growing! It’s so nice!

We were so lucky with the weather her in Køge, in 18 days it rained just once! Everybody told us it is unusual to have such a great sunny June in Denmark. Well, maybe I brought with me some Sicilian Sun 😉

I’m everyday inspired by this little plants.

Here one of the watercolor paints I did here.

Garden in Køge – Grow!

The work for our little garden in the square of KØS Museum continues.

I built with Yuki a little terrace and some plant pots using reclaimed wood, found in the street of the city. We were lucky to have a construction site very close to the museum, so that we could use lot of their waste materials; I was so surprise to see in the garbage container so much good wood thrown away.

We will stay here still 3 weeks, I hope to see some of our vegetable and flowers growing well before going away. We watch the earth every day and we are so happy when we see small leafs coming out.
I tell them “Grow!”, feeling like they can listen to me…

Discuvry project in Køge

Yukihiro and our little house made of material found in the Berlin’s streets.

I arrived in Køge on Monday the 23rd with my partner, the japanese artist Yukihiro Taguchi. We came here to continue our art project Discuvry at KØS Museum, in the frame of the current exhibition “In your heart – In your city”.

I collaborated with Yukihiro at this project; it started in the 2013 with the building of a little house in a empty area in Kreuzberg (Berlin); we built the first house in the Cuvry Brache and have lived there for almost 2 years, observing how it developed and changed from a waste-land to a chaotic town concentrated in a area big as a soccer field.

On the 18th September 2014 a big fire was started in Cuvry and the police used the occasion to evict the area. On the 22nd September the bulldozers started to destroy everything. We managed to get the authorization to disassemble their house and save it as art artifact. Now it is standing in the square in front of the KØS museum in Denmark, we will live here until the 19th June and make two house-party events, on the 9th and 18th June.

Our experience, work, action and life concentrate around the house in the Berlin’s squatted village are expressed by the stop-motion video created by Yukihiro and showed inside our house during the museum’s opening time.

If you are in Denmark by chance, come to visit us!

This time we are creating also a small urban-garden beside our house, planting some japanese vegetable and flowers.

You can find more info about Discuvry at the blog of the project: www.discuvry.com.

We look forward to having many visitors!

hand-made coloring prints

I’m constantly thinking about new stuff to sell at the sunday’s flea market or on my Etsy shop.

Thinking about black lines drawing, printed on watercolor paper and then colored by hand, so that every print will be actually a unique piece.

This is one fast try that I did today. I will uploaded it also on Illustration Friday for this week topic “Tattoo” 🙂

I want to sleep forever…

I love to sleep, it is really one of my favorite way to spend my time…I know sound lazy.

The point is that my sleep is extremely light, that’s why I need to sleep more time to feel really refreshed but at the same time, when I fall asleep I dream always, and alway multi-crazy-dreams.

I dream so much that I developed a kind of ability of control my own dreams, for example changing the way they are going when I don’t like it.

I really love to sleep!
