I admit... I am an Artmarket junkie. No, for real, I remember one summer, I went every Saturday to Artmarket and I always ended up buying something. And I believe this earns me the title '' the patron of art'' now:)
Artmarket is a market held in the center of Ljubljana where Slovene artisans are selling their arts and crafts. Everything is handmade, delightful, colorful, I feel like I see into the soul of every artisan when I touch their work.
It's a great opportunity to meet new people, meet old friends ('cause Ljubljana is small), get inspired and my personal favorite - have a chat with the artisans and then shop til you drop;)
My first stop was at Balkan Art Now where they sold some very interesting graphics, among which Marlyn caught my eye:
Then of course it was impossible to ignore these guys:
Leather keychains made by Jana Seliškar, you can contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I had a nice chat about Dr Martens boots made entirely of wire with Marjeta Hribar, the artisan behind the MetkaCvetka label (note to the reader: do not wear these Dr Martens when it's raining)
Then I fell in love... with the Lintu label! I remember seeing their work at Babushka, but now it was here, right in front of me, and I just couldn't decide which piece I liked best.
And last but not least...
... I purchased this illustration from Meta Weber, you can check out her blog here.
Have a fun Sunday, everybody!
