One of the best privileges of spending a lot of time in Paris is being able to witness the many artistic offers in town. These days, at the Grand Palais, you can visit the gigantic masterpiece of Anish Kapoor, "Leviathan," in what is known as Monumenta 2011. After Anselm Kiefer in 2007,...

Just arrived to this unusually cold Paris (tonight we had 5°C), I went to the Bal Jaune, the mythical dinner held by the Fondation Ricard to announce the winner of the Best Young Artist in Contemporary Art of the Year Award. From October 20th, and until the 23rd, the FIAC (Foire d'Arts...

Giambattista Valli is a very talented Italian designer, who's been in Paris for a while (he used to design for Ungaro) and recently opened his own splendid boutique on Rue Boissy d'Anglas, which I visited yesterday. But back to Moncler's show, I must admit it was the one I enjoyed best....

However, Paris, empty as it is, is more beautiful than ever. The few that have stayed behind ride happily on their bikes, visit the many parcs and eat at the usually crowded restaurants. The only place where you can see people is on Champs-Elyseés Ave., and specially outside the...

Fighting hard not to fall asleep (I got back from Paris on Saturday, so I was still suffering the 5-hour time difference), I saw almost the entire Martín Fierro Awards ceremony. I found the general look much better than in previous years, although there was a "surplus" of jewels (which I...

it's time for me to go back to Paris. If they lasted the 365 days of the year they wouldn't be holidays, right? Greece is one of my all-time favorite destinations and I try to come here every year. However, these past two have been special because of the economic crisis that threatens...

When it's grey outside, when I'm feeling lonely or when I simply need to rest my mind, I go to the Bon Marché: a traditional, classic but yet luxurious store in Paris. The Bon Marché is not the typical popular department store, as Galeries Lafayette or Printemps. Not at all. To begin...

Here I'm, back in Europe, in front of my trustworthy PC, contemplating Paris' grey skies through the corner of my eyes... After so many visual stimulus in the US, it's relaxing and rather dull. The truth is that New York in June, under a radiant sun and a pre-summer atmosphere, full of...

I had the privilege of meeting him last year, during his Paris exhibition, and I felt so happy... He is one of my favorite artists, if not THE favorite. But well, he was 88: it's kind of normal to die at that age. And then, in my hotel room, overlooking the sea, with its islands and reddish...

I've been packing and unpacking for years! And even more this time around, when I'm in Paris during the European summer, and constantly hopping from one place to another. This is why I've developed my own personal method, which starts with a sheet of paper and a pen: how many days will I be...
