Sibelius, Kusama and me

December 8th, 2016 by BLOGitse received 7 Comments »



is composer Jean Sibelius‘s day

(8.12.1865 – 20.9.1057)

I love his music.


Finlandia Hymn is mostly sung in Finnish but

these guys sing it quite well in English, right?


There are lots of versions of this piece also called ‘A Song of Peace’.




The other day I visited HAMHelsinki


Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition made me feel good.

I enjoyed everything: her art, books and film about her,

and most of all bright colors and those million dots.
























and last but not least 🙂

my ‘art’

just abstract ink and gouache strokes
