During my recent trip to London, I ate loads of squid, used lots of adverbs (it was literally quite nice), and romped around to explore their fantastic use of urban landscape. I couldn't get over how old and beautiful the architecture is.
I couldn't get enough of London's flea markets. Such amazing and old treasures. Here, I bought a wood-type letter "T" that was from a 1860's London Letterpress shop.
Wandering the streets and alleyways, getting lost, and discovering new things.
The highlight was definitely discovering the Peckham Multi-Storey Car Park. This is simply, an amazing use of pre-existing urban space. On top of a parking deck hidden in an alleyway in Peckham lives an amazing modular space that hosts a pop-up restaurant, bar, film space, and amazing view of the London skyline.
On the cover of my High School Art book was an image of Henri Matisse's paper cut-out from his Jazz series. Whilst in London, I visited the Tate Modern and got to see it in person. This had to have been one of the most impressive exhibitions I've ever seen, and the most emotional. As you walk through the space, the work in each room shows Mattise's work as he got older and sicker. But his art got bigger and grander.
I decided if I was ever to move to London, London Fields was my place.
"Look kids, Big Ben. Parliament."
London, I'll be back!
