One lovely evening we went for vernisage to a very nice venue next to our current flat called Villa Pellé (https://www.facebook.com/VillaPelle/). The building itself is definitely worth taking a look, it is a renovated villa which holds concerts, exhibitions and other art-related events

The exhibition was a collection of artworks of Miroslav Šašek, famous illustrator and journalist. We were familiar with his books before, we even have two at home. If you would like to know more about him, please visit this website: http://www.sasekfoundation.eu/en

He is most known for a series of illustrated books for children called: This is London, This is Paris etc, altogether 17 of them plus many more which were created after his death by artists inspired by the formula of the book and his drawing style.

I definitely recommend exhibition as well as books of Mr. Šašek not only for children but also for adults.
