Welcome to my page and the very first blog in relation to Art & Design dear readers.
As a Liberal Arts student in London, I am lucky enough to be able to still my hunger for creativity and the arts, history, culture and aesthetics at any point in time and wherever it pleases me. Fact is, with its abundance of museums, galleries, cinemas, street art and so forth, the capital offers everyone a chance to explore a world beyond the mundane hustle and bustle characteristic of any big city.
The most wonderful thing about London is, how little effort is required to discover something new; all that it takes is a quick glance around the next corner in order to walk into one of the city`s various art and culture venues.
So was it, for example, wonderfully convenient for me to take the staircase from my lecture room which led me to Somerset House`s latest exhibitionHair by Sam McKnight.

Itprobably goes without saying that Sam McKnight counts as the hair and session stylist transforming supermodels such as Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell or Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner over forty years in order to create some of the most iconic images in popular culture. Close friends with Princess Diana, Vivienne Westwood, Lady Gaga, David Bowie and Tilda Swinton, the beautifully curated exhibition at Somerset House invites the visitor behind the scenes, on an exotic, avant-garde journey into McKnight's creative, daring genius.
Entering the rooms without expectations, I was left with a swirling infusion of nostalgia and androgyny, romance, courage, splendor, curiosity and the irrevocable desire to book a hair cut soon. Still indulging in the blur of hair creations, colours, cuts, abstract photography and the sophisticated pieces of Haute Couture, I made my way back to my uni, wondering what exhibition to visit next.
