Hong Kong – Bibo: the best restaurant 'Street Art' in the world

For some time, I have many requests by mail, Facebook, etc… about this 'Street Art' of Hong Kong, the Bibo restaurant, which would be an amazing place to visit absolutely!
I therefore went in my passage on Hong Kong Island, in the District of Sheung Wan (district of art galleries), not far from the Central business districts, Admiralty… in the heart of Hong Kong Island.

I had the honour to be received by the Manager of the restaurant, Arturo SIMS, who has welcomed me very warmly in this place out of the ordinary.

Indeed, the theme of Street Art is omnipresent in this restaurant, which makes it quite magical place and that gives the impression to dine in a gallery of street art.

I took a few pictures to give you an idea of what makes the restaurant, but it must go to really feel the exceptional atmosphere of the place. It is just a dream to have a such decorations in a restaurant, whether street art amateur and purist, amateur art in general or even neophyte and curious. All walls consist of works of street art, or even the wall — the paintings are hung. But not only the decoration is 100% street art, but these works are signed by the most recognized artists in the world currently in the middle of the street art. Some such as Banksy for example have quotes of several hundreds of thousands of euros for most of their parts and quotations increase month by month currently, if not from week to week, so this button movement the world whole, art lovers, and general public.

Among these works, there is a very well known piece of Banksy: stuffed rat called 'Banksus Militus Vandalus' Banksy was placed in a room of the Museum of natural history in London in 2004 and which had made the headlines at the time. The rat wears a bag on back and has a microphone and a small bomb of paint deposited at his feet. A graffiti accompanies entitled 'Our Time Will Come'. This piece just to it, could be valued at hundreds of thousands of euros given its history… 😉

In the private room upstairs, that can be reserved for relaxed dining with friends or for a business meal very high-end, a piece of Basquiat dominates the room… Just superb. Without comment, unique in the world in a restaurant, even luxury.

Many books of street art lurking throughout the restaurant, on the shelves, tables, etc… everything is on the theme of art in general, toilets are decorated with pieces of street art on the walls, basins for hand washing are pieces of antiquity dating back over 200 years… In short this place is just magic. Invader is also well present… as usual :) it is very cool!

In short, if ever you go through Hong Kong for a holiday or for work, this place is a must-see in the city, to discover and to discover your surroundings. This is a superb address to know, in a fairly quiet area. The door is very discreet, without no name restaurant above. Just tap on the sliding door and a hostess opens. Then, place the dream and magic.

If you want to just have a drink at the bar, it is also possible, every day from 17:00.

I would again thank the direction of sumptuous hotel have opened their doors to the Street journal – Art.Fr for the greater pleasure of our readers :)

Pont des Arts – Paris: the definitive end of Street Art to the padlock mode…

This may 31, 2015 was the last day for surveying the Pont des Arts in Paris while enjoying thousands of padlocks left by tourists and lovers from around the world. It was a form of Street Art by a very large number of people for the most part even not knowing the concept of Street Art!

The overall weight of the lock had become too dangerous and the city of Paris has decide to put a definitive end to this mode by closing the bridge may 31 at midnight to begin conversion of the bridge work.

We were on-site a few hours before the final closure to take some historic shots of the last visible locks around plank of wood covered with graffiti filed by the city.

The atmosphere is heavy, sellers of illegal lock living this business for many years know their last day of work… Raining on this sad day for lovers of this bridge very atypical witness of the love of thousands of couples.

We propose you some shots taken by our care… waiting to discover how they will transform the Pont des Arts! Let's just hope that it retains its name and that it is under the sign of the Art, the most beautiful Art Street art! 😉

Cinema – Los Hongos: Street Art in Colombia

The film Los Bongos was released May 27, 2015, in France, on the subject of street art in Colombia. It is broadcast in some rooms only, but it is a very good movie for lovers of Street Art and fans of new cultures!

This film presents the story of 2 friends street artists, surrounded by their families, their friends, their surroundings, and some enemies… The Viewer is immersed in the life of a street-artist lambda, as there are thousands in many countries of the world, with little slots and their painting stolen to exist and take risks to indulge their passion.

The scenes are exciting, up to an amazing and fresh end.

It is rare that a film put in value the street art, especially in its purest sense and the simplest.

We recommend to all readers of Street – Art.fr! :)
