23 May – 26 August 2019
I went to check out the Van Gogh in Britain exhibition at Tate Britain, London.
It is quite a large exhibition with more than 50 works by Van Gogh but the exhibition includes quite a lot of works of artists who has influenced Van Gogh during his stay in England and who he in turn influenced.
It is interesting to see some of the influences and comparison to better understand his works and his life but there aren’t as many of his major works as I had imagined there to be.
Van Gogh and Britain is at Tate Britain, London, until 11 August
I managed to catch Frieze art fair in Regents Park, London this trip.

Sketch of the day in my moleskine sketchbook is of a bottle of George Town fragrance by talented independent perfume maker Josh Lee.
I am deeply grateful and honoured to be invited and flown in for the Moleskine AW18 and SS19 Preview in Singapore last Thursday.
I have been illustrating in my moleskine sketchbook for over 3 years and I have a fairly large collection of sketchbooks which you would have seen if you have followed my daily sketch challenge.
I fell in love with Moleskine because I love the feel of the sketchbooks and the brand fits in perfectly with my lifestyle. I travel and draw, and Moleskine encourages me to be part of this nomadic creative community.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin.Today, the brand Moleskine encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our mobile identity. Indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times: they are intimately tied to the digital world.
We are in the privileged position of making objects that, by their very nature, are not disposable and will never become obsolete. In fact, Moleskine objects are expressly designed to be kept and treasured. Attachment only grows over time because Moleskine objects are made to be filled with the owner’s thoughts and feelings.
Nonetheless, our objects are made using paper and other materials which, along with the manufacturing process, have an inevitable environmental impact. Moleskine is actively engaged in taking every precaution possible to help limit this impact:
