Fine Arts and Fairy Tales

10 nov. 2008

Again about tea and tea pottery. But also about "fine arts and fairy tales". I have discovered this little online shop (the only local shop is in Bucharest, Romania) just a short time ago and loved it instantly. It is a concept store, and the project was founded by Ana Wagner (artist and decorator) and her sister, Irina Wagner.

This is their "short history" (sorry, I cannot link some great pictures from their website):

"The shop ‘Wagner – fine arts and fairy tales’ emerged as a response to the need of artistic expression and communication.
A place of ‘tales’, because every artist on show comes with their own story. A space of art gallery, where art is presented in a non-conformist manner, in a warm and friendly environment. It is non-conformist, because for Ana Wagner, the founder of this ‘concept store’, china is the carrier of her drawings and paintings. Her fairy tales, stories of princesses and heavenly landscapes, with travelling cats and flying houses are no longer laid on the common paper or conventional canvas. This is true not only for Ana, but also for the artists she co-operates with and who we can meet in this space.

It is a shop where events and exhibitions take place, or one can simply have a friendly chat over a cup of hot tea. The space itself is an act of art through its optimism and colour, inlaid in the gray of Carol Boulevard, and last but not least, in the cultural-artistic context of Bucharest."

If you are in Bucharest, and love this kind of things, you should go there. I think it will worth it! But if you can not make it, just take a look at this beautiful website.

I am not in Bucharest right now, but when I will go home, I will check the Wagner shop. And I will take along all my princesses that are sleeping silently on the bookshelf, in the pages of 'Forgotten or Unknown Princesses' book, which was a special birthday gift from my brother and his 'princess'.(image from here)
