After long hours at Reina Sofia museum time for going to Outer Space. It’s called NuBel and it makes you wonderfully dizzy. Or, better, go there just before the museum - drink some wine and go to admire Guernica in 3D.
Hey ho, my name is Jo.
I’m an illustrator based in Wroclaw, Poland, collaborating with the clients around the world, such as The Guardian, ELLE Italia or Opéra National de Paris.
Can’t live without traveling, palm trees and prosecco.
One of my favourite places to enjoy a beer bathed in orange lights and layered walls. They used to give concerts downstairs. Unfortunately they got recently banned due to boring local regulations - hopefully, live music will return soon amongst their palm trees and tropical lights.
School, exhibition hall and place to discuss photography. Catalyst of Madrid’s photographic scene. Around them, there is a community open for everyone who cannot live without seeing through the hole of a camera.
Though you might say the city is full of colors, from Velazquez's tones of greys to Miro's vivid strokes and shapes. From Goya's darkness to Picasso's blues, Rastro's potency and variety of people and fabrics, or even shop windows for tourists full of Sevillanas and colorful magnets - the biggest canvas is above all of us. It's hard to beat the intense blue of Madrid's sky.
I have no idea if Giotto has been here, but I'm pretty sure he was inspired by Madrid's sky to paint Padua's chapel's ceiling.
The smoothest blue of Madrid's sky lies in contrast with the dryness and ocre buildings and landscape gives me torticollis.
The colors may vary from mediterranean sea, Yves Klein Blue and Pantone 293C. It doesn't matter how it's defined - it is, for me, a boost of cheerfulness in any place and mindset I find myself in. I won't be able to touch or reach the blueness of this sky, but it touches me. Deeply. And I happily allow it.
Spanish artist Jaime Hayon is sometimes called Almodóvar of design. So if you like "Kika", colours, Spanish culture and dreamy aestetics, you must visit Barceló Torre de Madrid and stay there for a night or just have a drink in a golden bar.
