The dreamlike worlds of Sonia Mehra Chawla

Sonia Mehra Chawla’s works are absolutely stunning.
This talented artist born in Kolkata (India), is mixing reality and fantasy to create a surreal and theatrical world, often colorful and with the nature omnipresent. Life and death, evolution and destruction are recurrent themes where biomorphic and hybrids forms stand along with human figures and chromosome and human cell -like are part of the landscape.
This is in my view, a very poetic and beautiful manner to say we are all connected to the nature.

House dreaming…

Like many Londoners, I dream to own my place here, but with the housing market going crazier and crazier every day, the only affordable home I can have is apparently a barge… could be fun, original, but… heu.. nope!

I still look at properties websites and find sometimes my sort of ideal home (not sure the link will work for a while, but anything from Urban space website would do!) but hey dreaming doesn’t cost much.

So when I found here this Victorian town-house here redesigned by APA, oh gosh, I want it!
A little bit tiny (remember, I grow up in forest so like big space) but it is so cute! I like the light given by the big window, it has a garden, good neighbourhood, lovely bathroom and so much potential!!! It is easy to imagine what to do with this, putting plants there, woody furniture but keeping at the minimum…

I don’t know the price but this is surely much more than I can afford, but hey, as I said, dreaming is free…
