Keiko Masumoto "motif/ vessel" at ICN gallery

Whenever I am in New York, I would spend at least 2 days visiting art exhibitions because like London, there is always so much too see! I usually prefer to visit the less touristy museums/ galleries, but on this trip, due to the limited time, I [...]

Song Dong's 'Waste not' exhibition

Posted on June 13, 2012 by Toothpicker

The problem with London is that there are too many cultural activities going on all the time, so it's hard to keep up sometimes. I almost missed the mesmorizing 'Waste not' exhibition by Chinese artist, Song Dong at the Barbican Centre, it was luckily that I managed to catch it at the [...]
