Im walking down town Stavanger this afternoon and passing a normally empty shop in Breigata. But now its full of art and its catching my eye as interesting. Im entering and in a corner, a woman sits with her computer. I see her, thinks that someone has to look after the place. I say hello! All over the place their is cloths and art. Its a pop up of art. The lady ask me if she can show me around. Since Im curious I say yes please. Its in this moment I see the signature of the art and understands that Im standing their with the owner of the signature, Pia Myrvold.
Ok, I know! She is not street art! But Pia Myrvold is so extravagant that its possible to write about her her at purposestreeart! Pia is from Stavanger and is so famous outside Norway. I have been visting her exposition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. She has had her exposition in Berlin, Roma, Shanghai, New York, San Fransico etc. Her atelier is in Belleville, Paris close to the booming St. Martin in eastern Paris. Then you can understand how hilrious this story is!
And we talked for around 45 minutes. Shared our wiew of creativity, building multicultural society, combinding art forms to creat new ones and saved the world two three times. But hello Stavanger. In Breigata you have one of the countries greates artist, but not long. Saturday its over for this time and you have to visit some of the world biggest cities to see her art.
And she let me see her art with VR glasses. That was amazing walking into the art. I will not be surprised if the next international exposition from Pia will push limits within and with this new technology! And by the way never limited people out of your first impression…….
I just had to:
