Jimi Hendrix,  the new idol ?

Jimi Hendrix, the new idol ?

Reading Time: 1 minutesWe all remember Benicio del Toro as Che Guevara on the epic movie of El Comandante’s life. We now wonder which icon, which symbol will be used. I would bet for Jimi Hendrix. In deed, we all look for a hero. But this hero can not be created by marketing, it must be a true hero, a true legend. A few years ago we got Jimmy Morrison, Gandhi, Jesus Christ himself, Mandela… So now who is the next one ? Which Rebel should we rediscover, and especially the below 20 years old ? I say Jimi Hrendrix. Why ? 1- Because everyboby is talking more and more about him 2- Because they remastered this year the Jimi Hendrix Experience album 3- There is a Revival 2010 tour about it with several famous guitarists 4- Because he is a true Rebel. 5- 70’s are always back!

Henri Rousseau, Painter of Jungle…

Reading Time: 2 minutesAt Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland, there is one of the most astonishing exhibitions about Henri Rousseau artwork. It is the first time, for years, someone gathered so many master pieces from the “Douanier”. 39 paintings from the artist. The commissioners for the exhibition are Christopher Green and Philippe Buttner. This one wrote an article on Le Monde  last month about the incredible collection. Henri Julien Félix Rousseau was born in May 21st 1844 and died in September 2nd 1910 in Paris. He is more than a Pionnier, Henri Rousseau could be considered as a Rebel with a cause!
