Let’s start the New Year with a look at the posts you liked most in 2016, particularly among posts dedicated to art and shops.


Happy New Year to everyone!! After a few days off, which were dedicated to bingeing and relatives, I’m once again ready to keep you company.

But I won’t start now with brand new topics. I prefer to greet calmly this 2016, which in many ways was of small company.

Giving an eye to the various statistics, I found the posts who were the top 3 you loved most. Here’s the best about art and shops.

BEST 1: ILLUSTRATION IN MOTION WITH LAPIN

The article you liked the most among those of Monday, concerns “the artist on the move” Lapin. This is how he defines himself, given the way in which his drawings come to life.

French by birth but Barcelona’s adoption, he always travel in the company of double entry old notebooks. Lapin on these notebooks draws what surrounds and impresses him of our contemporary cities.

BEST #2: DO YOU KNOW THAT IN PARIS FLOWERS BLOSSOM FROM THE SKY?

The second post you liked, was the one about the beautiful tearoom Lily of the Valley in Paris, designed by the firm Marie Deroudilhe.

Not the usual tearoom though: don’t expect the warm shades of red and orange and silks from China. A romantic and feminine style that recalls the essence of the name.

The special touch? The cascade of flowers hanging from the ceiling.

BEST #3: THE REAL ILLUSION OF FRANÇOIS ABÉLANET

On the third and last place in the ranking we find the anamorphosis of François Abelanet. But what is an anamorphosis?

It is a phenomenon we are seeing more or less consciously every day, when we look at the horizontal road signs: if we take for example the word “stop” this is readable only when we are very close to it. From a distance it is practically indecipherable.

This is an anamorphosis: a picture so distorted as to be readable only from certain points of view.

François Abelanet is one of the most talented anamorphic artists in the world: architect and poet, decorator and fond of Land Art, François verges his passion for creation, gardens and of course anamorphosis, through its gigantic and incredible works.
