Justin Beiber and the Graffiti Revolution in Bogota

Justin Beiber and the graffiti revolution in Bogota scandal is hard to believe for some unsuspecting tourists. Riding a taxi from the airport to downtown Candelaria, one thing is ubiquitous: graffiti. And from what I saw, many are murals, too. In many countries, people consider graffiti as a public sore

Photos: The Murals on the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall

The murals on the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall are a fascinating display of past, present, and future. Though the wall is covered in vibrant colors and eye-catching art, they can’t hide the city’s history. It’s engraved on, within, and beyond that wall. Today, the remnants of the

The Broken Chair at the United Nations Office in Geneva

You’d never miss the monument of the broken chair at the United Nations office in Geneva. It’s on the square in front of the office where world affairs are decided. The monstrosity of the structure carries the weight of a world problem we all too familiar with – war. The

This Fallen Angel Sculpture in Pisa Has Six-Pack Abs to Die For!

I love this Fallen Angel sculpture in Pisa. Lying with his broken head down, the angel with well-sculpted abs still looks flawless, despite the fall. 😉 His left wing is unscathed but the right one is misplaced (covering his private) and half buried in the green bermuda grass. And oh,

There’s a place in Brooklyn where you can see the world through Bushwick Collective murals. Artists from around the world came to share their art, for the love of art. From Australia to France; from Italy to the Philippines, muralists come to share the vision of the Bushwick Collective. You

Public Art in Detroit

Detroit, the Motown City, never runs out of public art. It’s everywhere. In every corner. In every street. I’m not talking about the ubiquitous graffiti the city is known for nowadays. I’m talking about these real public art that had been there even before the city lost its “Motor City”

Chicago – Pilsen Graffiti

I was told not to go there—in Chicago’s Pilsen Area–to check out the graffiti. I always have this fascination about graffiti. “It’s a dangerous area,” said the receptionist at my hostel. “Even during the day?”, I asked. She shrugged off her shoulder, tilted her head and eyes opened wide, “Yeah.”

Luneta Park in Manila

Paris Hilton had a selfie here in Luneta Park. So should you. 🙂 The day I was in Manila, I visited Luneta Park right after my lunch by Manila Bay before I went to Intramuros and Fort Santiago nearby. Luneta Park is the Philippines’ most famous park where a statue of
