Today I will share some of the inspiration from my new home town. The first thing I usually report of Dakar is its creative environment. From its colorful and unique car rapides to its street art, where ever you go you are surrounded by art!
And this weekend was one of Dakar art scene highlights, the Art Show organized by the Dakar Women Group. It was one of the finest selections I have seen so far. Over 500 pieces from more than 50 artists born, raised, working or living in Senegal!
But see for yourself and tell me that this does not inspire you to create!
Plenty of urban and architectural references, as well as an overall focus on play and childhood - i was in heaven! Dakar Biennale is coming up, I can't wait!
