It has being a long time since I was here, but I’m back! I have being very busy, working and exhibiting, and also moving studios.
Last week I went to London to meet my dear friends Val, Marcos, and little Gabriel. They decided to spend a few days in London before going to Sweden on vacation. This time I did not went to London to see art exhibitions, but to spend a good time in the museums and attractions that Gabriel’s fancied. However, we can find artistic references everywhere, we just have to look. We went to the Zoo,British Museum and the next day we went to the Warner Bros Studio, where the movie Harry Porter series were filmed. The experience was fantastic, because the number of artists working on the sets is immense, and they are fabulous. Here are some of the hundreds of photos I took in the studio and museum.

What’s good is that I will be active again, very excited!

Gabriel Orozco, London
Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco’s barely there, peripatetic work made him a defining voice of the 1990s. He hung a hammock in a museum garden, photographed breath misting a piano lid, and once rolled a man-sized ball of Plasticine through the streets of New York. Read more…
