For the love of art

Do you remember last month when I wrote about the cool surprise of the temporary art exhibition, which EY had put up at the UCL campus?

Well, they had a competition on Twitter where you could win your favourite piece from the exhibition and I actually won! My prize was a signed limited edition screenprint by Marco Lawrence’s Floating City art piece. I absolutely love the blue and red colour, not to mention all the little houses, which somehow reminds me of a Winter Wonderland city. I think it must be because the house roofs look like they are covered in snow and the diagonal, checked background reminds of snow crystals. It feels really luxurious to have that kind of art in my little student room.

I found out that all the art, which was exhibited at the temporary art gallery at campus was from Print Club London. If you like graphic art prints, you should definitely take a look at their website, they have some pretty amazing pieces! They make me wish I wasn’t on a student budget.

I was having a bad day when the prize arrived at my place, which significantly improved my day. I love how art can cheer you up, make you feel better and comfort you. On the day of the exhibition it cheered me up to see all that colourful, imaginative and in some cases even funny works of art, while I was actually busy running boring errands and today, I was having a bad day, when the prize arrived at my place, which of course significantly improved my mood! I love how art can cheer you up, make you feel better and comfort you. And do this more than once, as you look at it again and again. Which I now can thanks to EY, as it now stands against the wall on top of my desk. *
