Bubble Table at Szimpla Kert – Animated image from Budapest

Szimpla Kert is a romkocsma, which means ruin pub in Hungarian, located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. I fell in love with the place. The term “ruin” is not used lightly – the whole place, particularly this room, looks like it was taken over by deranged squatters.

An animated vision of a very interesting door in a small alley in Nafplio, Greece

For me, this door is irresistible. It’s got fairytale written all over it.

Captured this on a walkabout in Nafplio, a very charming and beautiful town in the area of Argolis (in eastern Peloponnese).

I only had a few days off from a short assignment in Athens and wanted a different taste of Greece. with the limited time and resources I had, Nafplio was a perfect fit. Very happy I made the trip.

One small area on the first floor of Szimpla Kert, the Budapest Ruin Bar

My own particular, very subjective and surrealistic take on the Szimpla Kert ruin bar in Budapest. When I went there, it was love at first sight. This is one small area on the first floor of the romkocsma, (means ruin pub in Hungarian), located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest.

Obviously a day capture. The night scene here is a different beast. The animations (quite a few if you look closely) represent how I see that place. I would definitely have made this pub my personal hangout if I lived in Budapest!

I love scooters – they’re all over Europe – this one from Greece

Guessing this was the delivery vehicle for the restaurant.

I loved the colour matching the exterior wall, and the red of the break and reflector lights matching the interior wall.

One of the many details that attracted my attention at Szimpla Kert, a romkocsma, or ruin pub in Hungarian, located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. This is a daytime impression, with added animation all my own, of the place. The night scene is an altogether different experience.

First snow at the pub

An animation from a painting of the Yew Tree, a pub in Alresford, Hampshire, in southwest England which was a very nice find!

Part of my ongoing preparation for the Art + Photo exhibition I will be participating in with Georges Dutil and David Morris, at the Atelier/Galerie Marc Gosselin, in Montreal, 17-26.05. 2018. #Montrealexhibition, #art#photo#TRIAGE#exhibition

Fire dish in Warsaw

This is part of my ongoing preparation for the Art + Photo exhibition I will be participating in with Georges Dutil and David Morris, at the Atelier/Galerie Marc Gosselin, in Montreal, May 17 to 26, 2018.

First one is a MP4, better quality but you have to set your player to loop for the effect to last more than 6 seconds – second one is an animated gif, which loops on its own, but is not as high def as the MP4.

From an original painting I created after a walkabout in Warsaw some years back. Time flies!

An animated piece reaches out to you, giving an illusion of experience that much closer to having been there. Of course, I still prefer the painting, which I’ll eventually publish here. In the meantime, warm yourselves by the fire in Warsaw’s Old Town.

Exhibition coming!

I’m glad to announce I will be part of an upcoming Art+Photo exhibition with two artist-colleagues – the picture has all the details you need for now. All three of us are very happy to work together again, and excited to prepare all kinds of fun things for this event.

More to come soon.
