The City of Ghent

Ghent is the Europe’s kept secret but, surprisingly to us, combined with vibrant contemporary art streets.

The City’s medieval heritage is very well preserved and restored, making spectacular impressions for the Eastern travelers’ eyes, hungry and overwhelmed with fabulous majestic open air streets, unique medieval castles, churches and old merchant houses.

There are so many riverside quirky bars, restaurants with local specialties and most authentic shops in Ghent that you would think of being lost in a  painting. No wonder why Ghent is called a true gem in the Flanders’ region of Belgium, with the belfry recognised by UNESCO.

It was our real pleasure to walk through you, Ghent and we hope to come back next year. We will never forget the moment of chilling on the terrace, the canal bankside, appreciating your evening twilight and views of charming white boats and unique Flemish windows!

Loving Vincent

Loving Vincent, first fully oil-painted film directed by Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobieta. It has been released first in Canada, Poland and Vietnam.
Did you know that each of the film's 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Vincent van Gogh and created by a team of 120 painters? We are also very proud to learn that many Poles contributed to the film, knowing their great animation skills. Great creation of the song written by Don McLean and performed by Lianne La Havas for the motion picture keeps beating in our souls:

"What am I in the eyes of most people - a nonentity, an nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person - somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low.
All right, then - event if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment that on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in depths of misery, here is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. All my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum" - Vincent van Gogh.

Now we know that his colors and paintings speak his dreams and he painted his dreams. He is going to be our inspiration and the leading star to paint our own IDEAS today.
