As promised, here are some photographs from my visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum

Today’s theme from Grace at Kimmie.gg is “Art”
What are some of your favorite pieces and genres? Which artist do you adore?
I am a person who is not restricted in my interests to a specific kind of art or even to a particular artist. I might like an artist a little bit more than another one time and vice versa the other. That is why I am not a big fan of any particular band/singer/painter/photographer/author. I know what I don’t understand though. I don’t understand classical music. I don’t understand modern art. I don’t understand complex poetry. I don’t understand non-fiction or essays.
I enjoy any kind of art, be it calligraphy, sketches, watercolor, hand crafts, music, anything that pleases me as soon as I see/hear it. I follow a blogger called LunchSketch, who stopped blogging a long while ago and whose domain is currently expired , and I loved his sketches. It was so real and so full of emotions. I would say I miss his sketches, if I have to pick one artist among the huge set I follow. I like some of Kamal Das’s poems and know them by heart. I like my friend Anita’s works (her yarn based and her bead works) and Ashwini’s cards (and I wish she would start selling some of those 😉 ) I adore LD’s photographs and his stories. I love my friend S’s work and he does my tattoo designs (inside information: I have got my second tattoo design ready…just waiting for the right time) I love street art (and I did a whole series on it with the photographs I took in London). I love my first niece’s drawing attempts and she is getting better and better (my brother is planning to enroll her in a drawing class, which she is quite excited about). I guess if I start thinking a bit more, I will have lot of other people in the list. So let me end with this:
