My pregnancy and this unbelievable heat wave have taken the best of me, but after a month long hiatus from blogosphere it is finally time for new blog post 🙂 !
Today’s post will feature something exciting and new that happened in our hometown last month – SPLIT 3D STREET ART FESTIVAL!
I would have been a shame not to use the art created by the wonderfully talented young street artists and try and combine it with an equally “urban” outfit.
…and in their own words:
“SPLIT 3D Street Art Festival is a non-profit event where artists draw 3D images with chalk on the sidewalk. This peculiar way of drawing is known as the “one-point view” because the full visual impression is obtained only from a certain angle. It originated from the tradition of “Madonara”, artist of sacred images in Italy. Bard of the modern variants of artists is Kurt Wenner.
SPLIT 3D STREET ART FESTIVAL 2015 in it’s first year of organization, devoted exclusively for promoting anamorfism, the art of the 21st century, with the goal of educating young artists from Split and with a mission to become a traditional festival as the best promoter of Split, Dalmatia.”
Hope you’ll enjoy the pictures, kisses from Split!
Idea for today’s post started with one of my favorite pair of shoes – black leather gladiator sandals. I bought them five years ago on a big sale. I remember watching them for weeks and saving up my money to buy them. They truly are powerful fashion statement. I don’t feel the need to wear anything colorful or extravagant when I have them on my feet – simple black dress is my favorite choice.
I am a big fan of books “Song of Ice and Fire” and series filmed by them – “The Game of Thrones”. My favorite character is by far Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi or Mother of Dragons. I’m very proud that big part of the scenes for the last couple of seasons of this TV series is filmed in Croatia and in my hometown Split. With my friend and photographer Stela I came up with the idea of this post being a tribute to the wonderful George R.R. Martin books, Roman heritage of our hometown and a fashion trend that cannot go unnoticed.
All the pictures were taken in amphitheater of the ancient city Salona, 5 km from Split – this is a beautiful place with huge history…I felt humbled knowing that 2000 years ago gladiators were fighting for their lives at this very place!
