MirĂ³ in Yorkshire...

In Yorkshire, UK, there will be a very big show or sample of the works of one of the most important artists, and especifically, sculptors, of the world: Joan Miro.
This artist is very recognized all over the world because he have the idea that "a sculpture must stand in the open air, in the middle of nature". His works are very surrealistics and splindis. The exhibition will feature bulls, monsters and giant eggs, and it will be shown at the Sculpture Park in Yorkshire, to all the public.
MirĂ³ started to sculpt very lete, when he was 38 years old he did his fisrt work. He made about 400 sculptures ranging from small ceramics to huge bronzes, before his death in 1983.
There is some concern about this exposition because before this, a Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture had been stollen. But the director of this event, Peter Murray, says that now the conditions are very different and that he took all the necessary security, and that the Park of Sculptures is the best place to show all the totems and the amazing job of this big artist; “His family said Yorkshire Sculpture Park is the correct place to show this work," says the director.
Anyways, this is a very important event, because i think that exhibitions like this one integrates cultures and helps to know about different topics of life.

The scary picture

It was Wednesday, and i was drawing a very beautiful woman playing violin. She was a very very fat woman, with a very long hair, and she were using it as the strings of her violin. But anyways she had a very sweet face and her gaze was very intense. I was so inspired that they (jaja). But when i stood up to smoke a cigarette, i saw the women move! …. I know i’m not crazy, and i know that i wasn’t drugged. I’m sure that i saw her move and play her violin! A few minutes later i told that to my mother and she laughed at me for a very long time. Then i went to the bathroom and when i got out of that place, my drawing was outside!, at my garden! So i took “the woman” inside the house and leave it in my bed. Then i went to look at my mom when i heared a noise in my room. I ran to my room to see what happened, and “the woman was on the window! So I said to myself OMG, take it easy Javi, maybe you leaved her on the window and you don’t remember. I got out of my room and went to smoke another cigar. Then i remembered… “where is my mom?”…I started to look at her at all over the house. She was in nowhere. I went very slowly and quietly to my room… and there was she! Putting my picture in the closet! She had been playing with me all the time! The two of us laughed all that afternoon.

2012, the end of the world?

According to the Maya’s calendar, a lot of promotion about the end of the world has been done for all over the globe. This is happening because scientists have found that this calendar has an end, and also has some predictions about things or catastrophes that had happen in a lot of countries, like capitalism, murders, terrorism and natural events like earthquakes, etc.

The calendar has an end, which means that our history, our age, the age of our world as come to and end. Not at all, Maya’s calendar is only one element about their predictions, and the information about the end of our world is not there, and is not anywhere. Maybe mayas were still building the calendar by the arrival of the Spanish, and they didn’t finish it. Anyways, Nostradamus coincides with this prophecy, and he also predicted a lot of events of our history, but I think that everyone can know that in a lot more years there will be wars and human catastrophes, because it ‘s just how our history works, by cycles.

I think that because of the recent events, the world has to come to and end in the social way. Maybe energy changes, maybe culture changes, or maybe aware changes in all people. I think that this has to changed, but I don’t believe that it will this year. I think that the end of the world is only northamerican promotion to sell or to frighten the rest of the world with its power. (jaja)

Now, if the world was going to come to and end, I’m sure that I would party and drink a lot with all my friends and family, to wait our death with a smile in our faces.
