Drawn to Seattle

Seattle sketcher at Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI).

This show features some works by Gabriel Campanario, also known as Seattle Sketcher His sketches are published every week in the Seattle Times. For five years, he has drawn places and attractions such as houseboats, food trucks, monorail, bridges, football games but also people and communities… Everything that defines our city.

What I preferred were the “Hidden Places” that I am excited to go discover by myself and share with you.

Hometown Boy by Liu Xiaodong

I like to go to the Seattle Asian Art Museum, a small museum that is always so quiet.

A few weeks ago, I saw Liu Xiadong‘s Hometown Boy series.

After studying in Beijing and settling there, the artist went back to his hometown, an industrial city, and painted with vivid colors his old friends, ordinary people, houses and streets that have not changed in decades.
A lot of realism and sensibility.
