Rooted, an art exhibition in St Mary’s.

Very much influenced by Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso.

Unfortunate too many of the displayed works covered in glass, making impossible to see.

Italian artist Emanuele Dascanio uses techniques from the the Renaissance in his drawings and paintings.

He was taught these oil techniques used by old renaissance masters by renowned Italian painter Gianluca Corona, then added his own style.

Hundreds of hours goes into each artwork.

John Lennon Wall

John Lennon Wall

John Lennon Wall

The John Lennon Wall, or John Lennon Peace Wall, is a rather unsightly graffiti covered wall opposite the French Embassy.

I happened upon it walking down from Prague Castle on my way to cross Charles Bridge and going on a slight detour.

The wall is owned by Knights of the Maltese Cross.

Anyone can paint on it. Bring along your own pots of paint.

Periodically it is whitewashed.

What has John Lennon to do with Prague?

Absolutely nothing.

Under the Communists and Russian Occupation, graffiti was one of the few forms of protest.

The music of John  Lennon was banned.

Do not expect murals. It is graffiti, nothing more.

The only interest was finding Thom Artway playing.

Cashing in on the John Lennon Wall, nearby a John Lennon pub.

To be honest I do not know the name of this museum in Municipal House or Obecní dům, the stunning Art Nouveau concert venue. It is more a design exhibition, but most of the exhibits are glass, and not all are exhibits, some are on sale, and not only glass, also books and music for sale.

The style is from a particular period of Bohemian glassware. The books were of this period.

The music on sale was of performances in Smetna Concert Hall.
