Didier Lourenço



This impressive, charismatic artist, Didier Lourenço has created well-made, admirable pieces of art. I had the chance to find his work in an art galley in a tiny but well-known street in Barcelona called "Carrer de Petrixtol". Besides for all the chocolateries and cafés where you can enjoy the tasty and typical spanish desserts in the famous Street, art galleries are making their own steps, successfully to recognition. Thank you Didier for such stunning art.

artTe & Cuixart



 
       



I had the pleasure to spend lunch time in the "ArtTe" restaurant in Muntaner street in Barcelona. At the beginning of the restaurant, there is an area exclusevily dedicated to tea. Black tea, Red fruit tea, Earl Grey, any possibility is available!  A tea is always a good idea is their saying! #tealovers #josocartte.

 Then, there is another area, where they offer shows and concerts at night, perfect place to enjoy dinner! Jazz, photo exposititons, vermut time, opera, soul funk are examples of their monthly offers.  The restaurant menu is very complete, gourmet and healthy food served in creative ways.  From pasta to Tofu served in Vietnamite style, ArtTe is totally worh it! 

After visiting this restaurant, we went to an art gallery nearby, Mayoral, which hosts the Cuixart temporary exhibition. The exhibition features 27 artworks including oil painting, drawings and sculpture. Mélancolie, cretaed by French composer Francis Poulenc is reproduced by a piano player. This piece of art was Cuixart´s source of inspiration.

Cuixart was awarded the First International Prize for Painting at the 5th Sao Paulo Biennial. He exposed his works at MoMA, Guggenheim Museum of New York, Tate Gallery of London among several others! Come by! ;)
