Exercise : A tattoo

 

Brief : 

Design a tattoo based on the word MUM. 

Make it into a greeting card.

I started with mind mapping around the word MUM.

MUM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then looked at different tattoos in different cultures.

I have decided to work on an African theme, mothers and women being very involved in

everyday life in Africa.

Imagine Van Gogh

 

During Summer, I was lucky enough to step into the artist’s world at La Villette in Paris.

 

 

In a very original presentation, the Grand Hall of La Villette opens its doors to Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) with a musical immersive exhibition. This not-to-miss event plunges the viewer into 2000m2 of prolific projections of the artist’s paintings and letters with dizzying dimensions. A massive installation of projectors and speakers creates a phenomenal audio-visual journey made possible by cutting-edge technological equipment.

This incredible exhibition/scenography is the creation and the collaboration of Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron.

John Lockwood Kipling

The 19th century Arts and Crafts revival in British India is a fascinating chapter in the international history of art and design. However, John Lockwood Kipling’s career as designer and architectural sculptor, curator and educator, illustrator and journalist, has received little attention.

Lockwood Kipling started his career as an architectural sculptor at the South Kensington Museum (later renamed the Victoria and Albert Museum) in 1861. He then spent a decade teaching at the Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy School of Art in Mumbai, and a further eighteen years as Principal of the Mayo School of Industrial Arts in Lahore (today Pakistan’s National College of Arts) and Curator of the Lahore Museum.

Away from the daily routine of art school and museum, Lockwood Kipling was a prolific journalist. From his arrival in India in 1865 to his retirement in 1893, he used his newspaper columns to develop his views on society and politics, art school education, museology, curatorship and design practice.
