Big city, neat art

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Beijing with my husband and some friends. It was a lot of fun. The city is huge and full of soΒ many unique districts. One of our favourites was the 798 district. It is basically an entire area dedicated to art. Art studios, viagra usa cheap art galleries, viagra and cafes and shops designed to match the theme of the hood. We had a lot of fun walking around and checking out the way art is created in a different part of the world. We happened to go there at the same time as their yearly art festival so there were a lot of people and I believe many more studios open to the public than usual.

Anyways, unhealthy we snapped a few pictures of some of the art installations we enjoyed and I wanted to share it with all of you today. Usually we have a tutorial on Tuesdays and I promise I have a great one coming up, it’s Halloween themed (kind of), but it’s a bigger project and it won’t be ready till Thursday. So enjoy Beijing today and we will have lots of crafty goodness coming up soon!

First of all, this guy and his dog. I don’t know what they were doing but everyone liked them, including us.

This ladies position reminds me of a Pilates move called ‘Teaser’ (fun fact – I am a Pilates teacher!)

No words, other than that I love that little dog.

A funny thing about China is that they sell stuff everywhere and in many different ways. Including dishes from the back of a truck.

Our dear friends back home, Brooke and Kyle, have a beautiful puppy named Lola. We found this stencil and needed to post it just for them! Love you guys.

Most definitely the creepiest sculpture I’ve ever seen.

I loved these guys, they seemed so joyful and alive.

It was certainly a treat to be able to check out such a cool and inspiring district. Beijing is a huge bustling city with a ton of stuff to do. I would definitely consider going back one day as there was so much we didn’t get to do. We of course visited the Great Wall, and all the other touristy places, but 798 was one of our favourite days.

Anyone else been to Beijing? Β What was your favourite place to visit there?
