Just a site for some crazy little things, but we do like.
Anticipating event of a global will take place in London very soon. What will you expect to see there ? James Bond with Olympic’s torch? Brit-super models in Vivien Westwoods and Alexander Mcqueen’s gown ? Brit- alternative rock bands come back to the stadium, OMG, Blur & Oasis ? or Spice Girls Re-union. I prefer to last act and expect “Wannabe” Victoria Beckham’s update version! Has lovely Harper ever known anything about ‘Posh’ ? Soon, she will.
Ok, you will definitely see those acts in every media channels for sure but do not stop your chance to visit any of the best Art Musuems and Exhibitions on the planet while you snack “Fish & Chips” in Olympic 2012. I will die for. London is one of the oldest European city that has various type of Art surrounding you in a form of Modern or Classic. I was once in the city of life. The time was flying so fast but it was full of graceful memory. It was once in my life that I did not think of shopping bags when I got in Tate Modern. LOVE.

Munch’s painting The Scream has attained a prominent role in popular culture, yet much remains to be understood about the complex Norwegian artist.
Munch has traditionally been portrayed as a 19th-century artist, symbolist or pre-expressionist, but this ground-breaking exhibition at the Tate Modern seeks to highlight his 20th-century influences.
Using a selection of Munch’s paintings, photographs and films, the exhibition will demonstrate how the artist was fully engaged in contemporary events and inspired by the changing world around him.
Some of Munch’s most celebrated works, including The Sick Child and Self-portrait: Between the Clock and the Bed, will be on display to highlight his use of single motifs, his preoccupation with self-portraiture and the influence of contemporary media on his work.
This is a great chance to see one of the most influential painters of recent times in a new light and examine the effect of a rapidly changing world on his art.
