Hanna & Henna

Henna-handsA couple of days ago I tried Henna for the first time. It’s a traditional pattern from Sahara and I must say I really love the result. I hope it will stay for a couple of weeks…at least 🙂

Graffiti gallery

Let’s take a look at some spectacular graffiti we found on a concrete wall outside Vecindario, Gran Canaria. Cool art or vandalism? Graffiti is without a doubt an uncompromising art form that can be inspirational and provocative at the same time. We don’t know the artists behind these beautiful creations but we have chosen to display them together with some legendary Banksy quotes. Enjoy!

“All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared to learn to draw?” –Banksy

“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish…but that is only if it’s done properly.” -Banksy 

“Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.” -Banksy

“A lot of people never use their initiative because no-one told them to.” -Banksy
