La Grand Arche Paris

Mural Art by Florence Blanchard

This summer I’ll be taking part in 2 interesting exhibitions: Adventures in Modern Abstraction at Stolen Space gallery in London, and This Will Ruin Everything at The Light House in Glasgow.

Last month I went to Paris to paint on the 19th floor of iconic building La Grande Arche. Pretty cool hollow cubic building from the late 80’s which is aligned with Champs Elysée, L’Arc de Triomphe and Le Louvre!DSC_1312_72DSC_1324_72

From wikipedia: ‘A great national design competition was launched in 1982 as the initiative of French president François Mitterrand. Danish architect Johann Otto von Spreckelsen (1929–1987) and Danish engineer Erik Reitzel designed the winning entry to be a late-20th-century version of the Arc de Triomphe: a monument to humanity and humanitarian ideals rather than military victories. La Grande Arche was inaugurated in July 1989, with grand military parades that marked the bicentennial of the French Revolution. It completed the line of monuments that forms the Axe historique running through Paris.’

Flux Opening

I had a lovely time at the opening on Thursday. Greenwich is a beautiful area of london, and the gallery is right next to the famous Cutty Sark, and a small walk from the Royal Observatory which offers a fantastic view on London. Very cool. Here are a few photos, thanks to everyone who showed up x
