Life in BerryTown

The last time I wore temporary tattoos was during high school. Back then, the design was old school with a lot of black ink. It was the traditional American styles of tattoos – skull, dagger, sailor, heart, bird, and anchor among others. Very rock and roll indeed. The other popular design was tribal. I had donned them all. But ask me to wear them now, I will probably only do so for a theme party. As I grow older, my attention to detail and style change.

Something creepy in Aarhus

This week photo challenge: Creepy,  takes me back to Aarhus. When I was travelling in Aarhus, I made it a point to visit the city’s art museum and Denmark’s oldest public art museum – ARos Aarhus Kunstmuseum. This 10-storey building is about 15-minute (or more) walk from the train station/city centre. The art museum offers visitors a variety of exhibitions and each floor brings you to different sections of arts, some of which are very challenging and mindblowing.

The same is the art. And both offer experiences of high carat: from light to thrill, from attitude to entertainment, from joy to challenge.” Here are some of the pictures I took 🙂 I am not an art expert but I enjoy viewing eccentric artwork such as Kvium’s masterpieces. According to Wikipedia, Kvium started creating grotesque realistic works depicting the darker side of life in early 1980s.
