Welcome to the Lithuanian “Burning man” type art madness which never ends and keeps expanding

*Meet me in Vilnius

photography by C. Cesnakevicius

Welcome to Uzupis Republic. Artist area: very boho-type district in one of the oldest and the most authentic locations of Vilnius (my home city and capital of Lithuania). Charming, unique, mad, mysterious and a must visit place in Europe. Expected the next Christiania (Danish autonomous neighborhood of artists in Copenhagen)  of Europe - to be.

Uzupis - politically very straight forward, brave, active, initiative and supportive area in the worldly issues, such as Tibet, Nepal, other controversial topics.

In the photo: white stork in the main square of Uzupis, graphically mixed with a hint of the desert.

White stork is one of the most iconic, symbolic, very closely culturally related, yet sadly extincting, birds of Lithuania. White storks every year leaves Lithuania to spend winters in Morocco, more warm deserted areas, and each spring they come back home to Lithuania to expand their families here. It’s also believed by Lithuanians for hundreds of years now, that if white storks build the nest in the territory of your home - it’s a blessing and good luck. If you get to see the even number of white storks - it’s going to be the promising year for those who look for the partner in life or / and wish to expand the family with the newborns.

Galera - gallery, place for summits, workshops & summer night cinema in the open-air

Come to Uzupis, experience the unique atmosphere. If you are an artist - it’s a perfect place for inspiration. I would definitely suggest to come and join other artists from all over the world, to create something new, great and unconventional. There is no place to be exactly like Uzupis anywhere in the world - which means it is a true undiscovered Gem & treasure on the map of the world. I would call this place “Burning Man type art madness with Lithuanian twist which never ends and keeps expanding!”

Meet me in Vilnius!

Yours,

Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle

If someone asked me to continue the title of this post it would sound “Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle or holy trinity of my personal boutique lifestyle approach”. The best thing about boutique lifestyle and one of the biggest reasons I prefer boutique luxury over standardised luxury is the factor of personalization, exclusivity and by all means as fewer “mass - what so ever” as possible. So after having those three photos on my desktop ready to be uploaded to my blog (separately in different posts), I realized that they all have something in common after all. Now I know - it perfectly highlights one of the options of how I’d have my day while leading my boutique (unique, PERSONALIZED, not compromised) lifestyle.

1. Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle: breakfast in your personal pool.

2. Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle: lunch on the top of the world or pre-war building in the heart of New York.

3. Holy trinity of boutique lifestyle: mussels according to french recipe dinner under the chandeliers on the coast.

p.s. Because the biggest luxury is time, the option to choose and getting one and only. Asking of mass - customization? - this time I agree with the idea that sometimes the answer is in the question it self! Being more clear - mass is never exclusive. So if exclusivity defines the quality and luxury, then boutique defines the ultimate luxury.

Cheers, My Dears,

Always Yours,

Epic Falling Water Illusion

Epic architecture by genius architect Frank Lloyd Wright - “Fallingwater” country house:

Dramatic cantilevered terraces / illusion of water flowing out from beneath the middle of the house / the warm glow from the interior lighting resonating with the autumn colors / harmonious and natural relationship to the setting / strong horizontal lines balanced by the almost unbroken vertical lines in the tower / water moving horizontally in the stream (Bear run) and vertically as “falling water” in the form of waterfalls / and the sound of the flowing water filling the house continuously.

In Wright’s statements his principles are denoted by words embodying deep intuitions: organic, democratic, plasticity, continuity.

” To Wright, architecture was a great inclusive agency through which humankind adapted the environment to human needs and, reciprocally, attuned human life to its cosmos; amid continual changes architecture could keep human life more natural and nature more humane. This idea pervades Fallingwater in accord with the aims of both architect and client, and gives it not only basic meaning but also powerful subliminal appeal.” (Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.)

Projecting the new life: personal oasis on a top of the world

*On Sundays even Jesus is having lazy afternoons

They say the more detailed picture of the dream you have, the sooner your dream will come true! Here’s the projection and step to the first day of my new life.

Place to be back - welcoming home far from rush, packed streets and chaos of everything: Ocean view from the top. in the middle of nowhere. endless space and freedom. easy breeze. water blending into the sky. inspiring. relaxing. collecting back to your pure self. peaceful. quiet. cozy. full of horizons. completely unstoppable.

Perfect match for the soundtrack of the home projection. That’s how all this sounds in my head. I’m absolutely excited to present brand new, couple of days back revealed to the world amazing piece by Karma on AFROgliuck’sNoizeWave:


Yours,

The world is a book

*STOLEN WITH THE PRIDE

Perbadanan Putrajaya Complex (the modern interpretations of Islamic architecture). In the center is Palace of Justice where the Malaysian Court of Appeal and Federal Court , which moved to Putrajaya from the Sultan Abdul Samad Building in Kuala Lumpur in the early 2000s.

Have just found this wisdom (”Pasaulis yra knyga, ir tie, kurie nekeliauja, skaito tik pirmą puslapį”) of fb wall of “Voyage-voyage”. I’d definitely recommend to check up on their website or fb page for more, if you’re always curious for more, always up for travelling, getting to know people and cultures, aren’t afraid of not knowing what happens next and always bow down to old civilizations in exotic parts of the world, sometimes even in the middle of no where :))


“The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only a page” St. Augustine.

p.s. “…If you read a page of a book you get a taste of what the book is about. By reading the book, you get to know the author”
