Around Shaviv

The place I spent my teenage years was far from being aesthetic paradise. Actually, it was (and stays) a real slams. Municipality has some plans to take it all down and build a regular middle-class neighborhood. But right now, just as 20 years ago, these houses are still here. They are so ugly, that has even some kind of old charm.

Back then, this dispiriting landscape around wasn’t bothering me. I was concentrated on myself my friends and our relationship, fantasy books (reading Hobbit and Lord of the Rings again and again), and drawing comics with little creatures, which my mum still keep in a box on top of her cupboard. Not the creatures, of course, the comics.

Now I like to believe I see the real things as they are. I have to see it, because now I am a responsible grown up. We all have to. But sometimes, especially when I am walking around with my kids I enjoy to look through my personal kaleidoscope. Then I can turn this:

buttons, the buttons on the wall

part of strange «button» graffiti, which fits really good into the textile neighbourhood where I found it. I was so excited by the texture, that have forgotten to take a picture of the whole thing.

one nice sunny day

My daughter Michelle is a perfect company for drawing in a cafe. First of all, she is a very patient model.

strange

I found a very strange photo among my photos. I took it. I find the composition amusing. But absolutely don’t remember, what can it be?

strange procession in the middle of Tel Aviv

interesting, what was it? My guess — kind of protest against plastic surgery…

Urban noise

Everything looks so noisy and distorted these days…
Like a bad radio. Like pieces of broken evil mirror from Andersen’s fairy tale. How can I get rid of that noise?

Visit to Moscow

http://www.lenarevenko.com/blog/files/moscow-01.jpg

Recently my friend Karin (who lives in Berlin) and I met in Moscow. Last time I’ve been to Moscow I was twelve, and could only remember a very tasty ice-cream I ate on Exhibition Grounds, and that my cousin Sasha, whose room I occupied during that visit, had a very cool kind of calculator, which could generate mathematical exercises as a game. This time I had definitely more memories. This city is beautiful, sexy, intriguing, but also cruel, clinical and very cold in every respect.

view

I had a meeting in old Shalom Tower yesterday. They have many boring offices there inside, but the view was so beautiful! The old Tel Aviv neighborhood Neve Tzedek with Old Jaffa on the horizon and calm and endless blue sea. Of course, mobile phone camera hardly shows a small part of that beauty…

My mini-streetart

I made some stickers from my pix. Very little ones. To mark my territory in Tel Aviv :D
