Daily Dose Of Art

And here comes my daily dose of art.
I remember that after all the shopping and sightseeing that was done in Milan I need a little bit of education. And it was nowhere else but on the Duomo di Milano (Milan cathedral) where I saw this huge billboard of Gustav Klimt’s painting saying that there is an exhibition  called Klimt – Alle Origini di un Mito ( The origins of a legend) at the Palazzo Reale Milano, which is actually next to the Duomo.  This was the moment where I ran down the stairs of the Duomo, which was kind of claustrophobic and I had a couple of small panic attacks, but I survived.

However, I payed my ticket, got in to exhibition and was surrounded with Klimt’s best known masterpieces from Adam and Eve (1917) to Judith II (1909) and The Sunflower (1907). Just a side note: Gustav Klimt is an Austrian symbolist painter, who’s primary subject was the female body and his pictures all seem kind of erotic.
And you should know me by know and this should not surprise you: I tried to take pictures. I just wish these pictures would show how the paintings really look like, because the quality is shit and it looks brutally beautiful when you stand in front of them. But hey I tried and this is just a sneak peak, you really have to go and see the exhibition :

Ciao ragazzi! Come stai?

As if Croatia wasn’t enough, I went to see Milan/Italy for a whole week (#JetsetLife). Milan is supposed to be one of the four fashion forces besides Paris, London and New York. The fashion was overall disappointing though or maybe I was just doing the wrong things at the wrong places. IDK. However I ended up living in Milan’s ghetto for a couple of days (not that I am not used to the ghetto life, but still I thought I could do better at least on vacas…). And instead of whinging (which I kind of did a lot and this is the right time to apologize to the concerned people: Sorry!) I put my Black Boy Place  Picasso Baby t-shirt on, which I thought was quite fitting for the situation.

BBP (Black Boy Place) is a French clothing brand founded in 2010, which attracted success, recognition and fame in Paris (France) and overseas through artists such as Jay-Z, Beyonce or Les Twins. It draws on several clothing styles like rock style, hip hop, but also a little more classic styles to offer unique and ground-breaking designs that can be worn by everyone. The purpose of the brand is to connect both the urban and classy styles.

The t-shirt was not the problem, because it’s a cool piece of fashion, but I  literally walked my soles off. These shoes were not made for walking, especially not for at least 9 hours, which felt like 24 at the end of the day. And as dumb as I am I repeated this every day. Well, at least my Italian improved by asking for directions.

So stay tuned for la dolce vita all week long. No freaking escape!
