“2000“ 1+1=3 series, 90 x 75 x 10.5cm, acrylic on canvas, 2019.
Connecting characters from both the old and new era is a phenomenon of communication for designing contemporary ARTOYS. Such intimate connection of the heritage and present can be considered as an invisible mentorship of learning from the past to achieve the evolution of the future.
Within the classic modern characters from 1900 to 2000, Michael recognizes their own characteristics, motions, originality, colors, fonts, style, and even packaging. Adding some slight touches of humor by changing a portion of the surface, Michael pays homage to the classics without losing his distinctive creativity. This is also considered as an artistic philosophy of “PACKAGE-CHANGE”. “Warming (as in “warm reminder” from “Warning” on packaging) throughout the whole series all carries the same message“Good artists copy, Great artists steal!”
COLLECT THEM ALL! (SHANGHAI) exhibition by michael lau, 31 aug - 12 sept 2019 at Christie’s Shanghai Art Space, 1st Floor, Ampire Building, No.97 Yuanmingyuan Road, Shanghai, China. Opening hours: 10:00am ~ 5:30pm
Памятник Зураба Церетнлли "Большая тройка" Сталин, Рузвельт и Черчиль - главные союзники второй мировой войны. В феврале 1945 года в Ливадийском дворце прошла Ялтинская конференция, посвящённая установлению послевоенного мирового порядка. Памятник был создан в 2005 году и его хотели установить к 60-летию Ялтинской конференции, но против этого выступили некоторые представители украинских партий (Сталин насолил многим 🤷♀️) В итоге памятник был установлен к 70-летию конференции, уже после того как "Крым наш" и прочее, прочее.
Ливадийский парк большой и красивый. Я, конечно же, хотела исходить его вдоль и поперёк. Увидела ступеньки, ведущие вниз, пошла по ним. Мама спросила прохожих куда они ведут, сказали, что к морю. Была бы я одна, я бы конечно спустилась до конца, но глядя на маму поняла, что ей такой подвиг не по силам, а потому, развернуашись обратно в середине пути, мы потопали вверх в сторону автобусов. #livadiya#bigthree#большаятройка#history#crimea#travelling#exploretheworld#summer#august#vasara#parkas#park#livadiyskypark#palace#window#stalin#churchill#roozvelt#yaltaconference#argonautconference
So this birthday I didn’t get to spend with my family, but I got to celebrate it with some new friends, that I completely adore! An eventful night that started by us taking the bus downtown and the homeless man sitting behind me pooped his pants and got up and fell on a bunch of people, got out of the bus, passed out and face planted onto the sidewalk with blood all over his face. My friend has first aid so she was able to help him until the ambulance came. Then we get to the yacht party line up and find out that Bombay is a place in India so we got tickets to a Bollywood theme yacht party, and lastly on our way home the cab turned us down because we didn’t have cash on us so we ended up getting a ride from complete strangers and finding out when we got home that my friend had swapped phones with one of them by accident. So far it hasn’t been a dull moment being 27, and I’m looking forward to the next year. 🙈
💛It’s been a VERY big few weeks of celebrations in my household, I LOVE August!! My beautiful daughter and I celebrate birthdays just 4 days apart so we make a good month of party decorations and fun gatherings. We love it ALL but gosh we’re tired (me) 😬👵🏼. Lola turned 11 on Wednesday. Lola loves all things chocolate so it was my mission to make her an extremely chocolatey cake... and my friends, I FAILED!!! The picture you see here is a picture of something that firstly, looks like a car - she doesn’t like cars nor has she ever been interested in playing with cars. Secondly, this car (ahem) cake, could have been used as a brick to break a car window if required. I kind of worked this out when I was trying desperately to save the cake by ‘adding more’ chocolate to it. Pushing anything into the cake resulted in crumbling and breakages. The candles were the only thing that stood the test of time (Praise be 🙏🏼), everything else required a gentle force that a mother would understand.
I had the cake put to the side as a little surprise but little did I know that she had seen it but said nothing…😐 Seriously though, what is wrong with having a car cake?
I feel like it could’ve all been saved if it weren’t the driest cake you could ever imagine. You see, I had little ingredients to make the cake and was too impatient to wait for the essentials that were on the way, so I googled a recipe and found a spelt flour chocolate cake to make. I followed the instructions without thinking of the flavour, the sweetness OR the texture, and off I went. Go Me!! 💪🏼 This cake has no refined sugar, eggs, or even butter for that matter 😳… I made her a vegan cake & I didn’t even mean to!! My chocolate loving vegetable avoiding daughter received a vegan chocolate cake for her birthday & she was not shy in reminding me of the cake that she made for me… Swipe away! Totally beautiful, tasty and made with love. Incredible.💗 I really do love August but as mentioned above, I’m tired. Next year please remind me to stock up on sugar, butter and all things chocolate - OR send me your BEST lightest and somewhat healthy tried and tested chocolate cake.
I owe her 🤦🏻♀️
