13TH JANUARY 2015: CLASSICS – STREET ART PHOTOGRAPHY BY CLAUDE CROMMELIN
Join us on Tuesday January 13th for the first instalment of Budvar Tank Tuesdays, take in exclusive street art photography by Claude Crommelin while enjoying the authentic brewery taste of Budvar Tankové Pivo. This week he showcases ‘Classics” – sensational urban art inspired by classical painting. Now this genre is gaining huge popularity and attention, Claude believes that some street artists choose unexpected places as their canvas, due to the growth in acceptance for the art form. Maybe the old spray can has had its heyday and we will soon get used to seeing street artists working with a pallet and brushes, depicting biblical scenes. Then again, it is possible that there is a trend to return to the old masters in visual art in general?
Don’t miss the Budvar Brewery Experience and the chance to sample Tankové Pivo, as well as a different street art photography exhibition each week at Zigfrid von Underbelly…the only thing missing is the smell of the Moravian malt from the Brewhouse.
