Posted on June 26, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
How many of us pay attention to the text and typography around us in the city? When we are rushing around the city, we tend to miss what is right under our noses. During the London Craft week, I joined the "Creative Inspiration Walk: Text in the City" organised by The Goldsmiths [...]

Tsz Shan Monastery & Buddhist Art Museum, Hong Kong

Posted on June 4, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
Of course we all know this: money can't buy you happiness. But for Li Ka-shing, Asia's riches man, money can buy him a Buddhist Monastery, and possibly nirvana. I have wanted to visit Tsz Shan Monastery funded by the Li Ka Shing Foundation since its opening four years ago. However, the online [...]

Posted on June 2, 2019 by Toothpicker

Posted on May 23, 2019 by Toothpicker

 

 
I have always been fascinated by Japanese American modernist artist, designer and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi's work, yet I have never visited his museum in New York even though I used to live there.
