kiyaa taking a walk
i've abandoned the line art but i'm glad i still went with it. ahha!
i do have those shoes, socks, bag, dress, scarf. but the headphones, though, i left it at my ex work place a long time ago but i never get around picking it up. U_U although i loved it very muchly. lollipop may be a euphemism for just about anything. ;)
By the way, i went to the ''grandma's backyard'' at la scena yesterday, supposedly an art flea market. the site gave me the impression that they were selling vintage and second hand things for people who are looking for nice treasures among trash for a cheaper price. it wasn't quite like that.
it was a lovely place, but the impression that i got after taking a look around was that it was more of a show rather than a market. there were nice handmade works: clothes, bags, badges, shoes etc, but most of the prices, sorry to say, were not of art market material. i understand that they were viewed more as ''artworks'' than actual utility objects by the creators but for a mass selling like that i would suggest diverting their priorities from a ''solo exhibition''(which weren't quite anyway since it was a gathering of them) to business related to art that would actually be distributed and shared among the public who were interested to bring something nice home.
somehow i'm getting the impression that the artsy people in bucharest, (the ones i've been running into) are rather hardcore elistist, being in the domain because it's the trend. to me, there is a difference between talent, and talent coupled with a tinge of arrogance and elitism. just a small opinion of mine derived from various observations around.
i really hope it changes for the better in the future.
