Tokyo Street Art – 33 photos au hasard des rues Tokyo Street Art – 33 photos au hasard des rues Une sélection de 33 photographies de street art réalisées dans les rues de Tokyo. Les habitués de UFUNK.net se souviendrons des sélections de street art à Marseille ou à Paris que je réalisais souvent. Mais Tokyo est une ville propre, et le street art ne se trouve pas à tous les coins de rues, car cela n’est simplement pas dans la culture locale de dégrader les biens publiques (ce qui est très agréable à vivre, sauf quand on cherche du street art). Ce qui ne veut pas non plus dire que les artistes ne sont pas présent !

The 10 Best TED Talks of 2011 Watching videos online is usually considered fun, but generally a waste of time. Not so with TED videos, which are uniformly interesting, educational, inspiring, and enjoyable. If you haven't spent much time (or any) checking out TED videos, you should – and to help with that, I've compiled what seem to be the very best 10 TED videos of 2011. It was a grueling task, combing through the cream of the crop on the TED site, but somebody had to do it. Some of the talks may have been filmed prior to 2011 but all of the talks here were posted in 2011. How I Became 100 Artists You don't need to be an artist to appreciate Shea Hembrey's "How I became 100 artists," but if you are it's even more amazing. A Modern Take on Piano, Violin, Cello If music is more your thing, then the "Modern Take on Piano, Violin, Cello" entry from the Ahn Trio is a must-watch (and listen). 3 Things I Learned While My Plane Crashed Learning experiences like this, I could do without. How to Spot a Liar Your Favorites?

El «niño esclavo» de Banksy puede alcanzar el millón de euros en su subasta en Londres La obra fue retirada de una pared del norte de Londres en febrero, y reaparece este domingo en el London Film Museum tras un intento frustrado de subasta online en Miami El mural de Banksy que desapareció en febrero de una pared de una tienda «todo a cien» en el norte de Londres encontrará el destino final a su ajetreada vida en los próximos días, cuando salga a subasta en Covent Garden. La obra, titulada «Trabajo esclavo», será expuesta a partir de este domingo en el London Film Museum, antes de ser sometida a las leyes del mercado por el Sincura Group, la empresa de servicios privados encargada de encontrarle un comprador final. Dos empleados de la tienda Poundland de Wood Green, en el distrito de Haringey, notaron obras en el exterior mientras tomaban un té en una pausa. Varios operarios se estaban llevando un trozo de pared exterior del comercio. Alarmados, llamaron a la policía, que comprobó con los propietarios que todo estaba en regla.

40 Ways to Live Life Without Regrets “The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” ~ Unknown We all have something stored in our memory banks of the past that we wish we could have done differently, or something we wish we didn’t do. As we get older we learn and grow, but that doesn’t mean we have to regret what we did before we learned how to do things differently. If we didn’t go through those experiences, we might not have grown into the strong and knowledgeable people we are today. What I’m proposing is that we get rid of the negative thoughts—the could haves, might haves, and should haves—and start living a life that won’t make us feel regretful. Here is a list of things you can do to practice living life with no regrets: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.Love your work. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. Put these things into practice and see where life takes you, without regrets.

Space Invaders, el juego que revolucionó el mundo de las consolas - BBC Mundo - Noticias 6 Tips to Live in Peace and Balance: What to Let Go “All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” ~Havelock Ellis Imagine that you have to move in two days. Would you be able to pack all your possessions in that time and clean out your house completely? How about your mental baggage? Three years ago I left the country where I was born and raised and moved permanently to a different place half way around the globe. Packing was not easy because there were so many things that were meaningful to me but of course I couldn’t take them all. However, the hardest part was still ahead. I had two choices: to hold on to my past, complain, and be completely miserable or let go of everything that was no longer relevant and start a new life while still holding on to my authentic self. You may not have had to go through such drastic changes in life. A lot of times if we are not forced to let go of something we keep dragging 10, 20, 40 years of mental and physical baggage behind us. We stop having new goals and dreams. 1. 2.

Blue Sky Painters – Quand un street artist illumine les rues de Téhéran avec des fresques incroyables Blue Sky Painters – Quand un street artist illumine les rues de Téhéran avec des fresques incroyables Les incroyables créations street art de l’artiste iranien Mehdi Ghadyanloo, qui avec sa société Blue Sky Painters illumine les rues de Téhéran avec des fresques incroyables… Entre illusion et poésie, les créations de Mehdi Ghadyanloo s’insèrent dans la ville avec subtilité et douceur, tout en apportant une belle dose de couleur. Magnifique ! Images © Mehdi Ghadyanloo / via Un proyecto busca hacer del arte el punto de encuentro Un total de 18 artistas venezolanos viajarán a Francia y China para participar en Ceci n’est pas une histoire o Esto no es una historia, es ya, que más que una muestra de arte es un evento de intercambio cultural en el que presentarán sus propuestas sobre el cuidado ambiental. Expondrán aproximadamente 44 obras entre arte contemporáneo, performance, música, teatro, circo, danza y distintas artes visuales. Este acercamiento entre creadores del país y de otras latitudes tuvo su origen en el proyecto Deplacé: fuera de lugar, en cuyo texto curatorial Franklin Arellano señalaba: “Los artistas sienten el deseo de emprender nuevas vías, de acrecentar sus experiencias por un sentimiento natural de claustrofobia, de encierro; una búsqueda fuera del lugar permite renovar el espíritu. No se trata aquí de expediciones, sino de aproximarnos al otro y construir una verdadera poética de la vida, sin prejuicios”.

The Secret Behind a Great Person A while ago I found a YouTube video of Josh Groban singing Vincent. It’s a beautiful song and the performance was also beautiful. I loved it. But then I got interested in what the song was about. The song is about a 19th-century Dutch painter named Vincent van Gogh. I’m sure you know about him; he is a famous painter whose paintings are among the most expensive in the world. Unfortunately, the painter himself didn’t enjoy all the fame and wealth that his paintings generate. Moreover, he went through a lot of difficulties in his life. Considering the phenomenal fame of his work later on, it’s tragic. But I found something interesting: despite all the difficulties in his life, he still managed to create a lot of great paintings. The answer is that he had a strong supporter, his younger brother Theo. Unlike his older brother, Theo van Gogh isn’t famous. Theo was a constant supporter of Vincent throughout all his difficulties. If you have such a supporter now, be grateful for them.
