This post is for those who didn’t have the opportunity to see the remarkable exhibition by Jake and Dinos Chapman that finished last week at the White Cube galleries.

In Mayfair’s White Cube, the Nazis were looking at the paintings on the walls. In the Hoxton’s gallery you would take a while to realise that all those mini children were actually sculptures, just to later look at their animal faces. So impressive. However, what I liked the most was the ‘evil chapel’ on the second floor, full of busts of saints shockingly deformed.

At the end of the video below, there is a view of the chapel, don’t miss that out. ;D

I know it is not new at all, but after going to Italy I had to post this! :-)

Although the Italian artist Michelangelo was well -known for his famous sculptures, such as David and Pieta (below) I had the opportunity to see both, painting and sculptures in my recent visit at Florence and Rome and I dare to say that the painting made my jaws drop much more than the sculptures.

Because of his painting in the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling that I realize how genius he was and how amazing his work was since the Renascence period. Besides, he took four years to paint all the Chapel.

Everyone deserves to see with their own eyes the Sistine Chapel, In Vaticane Museum, in Rome. The magnitude, the bright and shades, the depth of field, the brilliant colours, the harmony and the details of each story behind the brushstroke is felt from the foot to the head. He also made use of the space painting over columns, giving the sensation of seeing a 3d picture.

Unfortunately, we cannot take pictures inside the chapel, so the pictures were researched by google and is just a small taste of it.
