Everyone knows this little duck or "canard de bain"
This little character has been declined a lot even in sex toy...
But now thanks to a very talented artist is becoming a piece of Art in the Land Art Movement.
One of the famous artist of the Land Art is the couple CHRISTO et Marie Jeanne and the wrapping of the Pont des Arts in Paris and their " ephemeral Installation" in the Central Park In New York .
As them, this artist Florentinjn Hofman who comes from The Netherlands, wants in his huge spectacular monochrome Installations to give a message of peace.
Look as his incredible work
About his rubber duck he said :A yellow spot on the horizon slowly approaches the coast. People have gatherd and watch in amazement as a giant yellow Rubber Duck approaches. The spectators are greeted by the duck, which slowly nods its head. The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!
Some of his other works
some of his works in progress
I am surprising myself to write about the Eurovision song contest 2008 but new things happen this year.
First, in my new country, Sweden, I don´t again understand why but here the Eurovision is a huge event in the country. More than half of the population (around 4.5 millions) followed the selections for the Eurovision!
In my case, I don´t have any memory to have watched one time the Eurovision. In France, the young people are not so interested by it (and of course I am very young!!!!).
May be it is a coincidence because I am living now in Sweden but something is sure this year I will follow the final not with my French flag (it is not Bobo) but with my tee-shirt I love SEB.
Yes because I ADOOORE Sébastien Tellier, the singer will represent France for the Eurovision. He is so Bobo!
For the first time in France, there is a pop electro music in this competition and which one!!!
With his song “Divine” Sébastien Tellier represent the new French musical trends. His last album called Sensuality is co-produced with a member of Daft Punk..
With his kitsch and “décalé”(= you have to take it at the 2nd or 3rd dedree) style, Sébastien will represent perfectly the French touch !!!Even if we don´t win,
And I am sure that for once in France the young people will follow the competition!
Allez Seb !!! He is so Bobo!
Enjoy the official clip of Divine
I love also the song "Roche"
This summer, the liberty textil is everywhere in the fashion : blouses, dresses, sneakers, underwears, decoration,.... and in the Bobo Gallery of course!
This special textil with its little flowers was created in 1939 by the company Liberty in London.
The fashion show of Luella Bartley
The NIKE women "Dunk Hi Liberty" in limited edition
AND IN THE BOBO GALLERY
The Liberty Eiffel Tower decal- Les Invasions Ephemeres-
The so chic little dress/blouse (3 months until 2 years)- Marie Puce-
It is a new trend of knitters getting together and knitting things around public property. The groupe in Stockholm is called Masquerade . There is also a famous guerilla knitting crew in Texas www.knittaplease.com
A tag crew of knitters, bombing the inner city with vibrant, stitched works of art, wrapped around everything from public monuments, utility poles and all what they feel. So the Masquerade´girls, if you come to Svartmangatan 10, exprime yourself you are more than welcome!
The Bobo advice : During the week-end, enjoy yourself following their mapp and see Stockholm in a different way!!!
and of course they travel!!!
Just because j´adoore!!!
I love the one for the shoe lovers from the swedish designer Lisa Bengtsson http://www.lisabengtsson.se/. The others are from several artists for Marimekko. http://www.marimekko.com/eng/interior/fabric/etusivu
The Bobo advice : put for exemple the shoes wallpapers inside of your wardrobe or your dressing room so chic! ...and in general to consommate but with moderation!
I like also the wallpaper with books in the shelves from the new Pontus restaurang in Stockholm.
Naturelly, we are the "dutch style" bike and not the sportive style one at all.
For the Bobo style : customise your bike or your basket this is even better(painting, decalls, flowers, bands...)be creative! and stay chic in your outfit!

Ask someone to take a picture of you and send it to me and to this fun website Copenhagen Cycle Chic they will certainly blogg it as me!
For sweden ma favourite basket is from Design House Stockholm and it is very easy to customise and you can used it also as a shopping basket...
Of course after the Bobo Gallery it´s the ROSENDAL TRÄDEGÅRD in Djurgården.
I love this ecological, artistic place! There are a coffe restaurang place, a bakery, a shop with only ecological products and a place where you can buy flowers for your garden, your balcony...

There is currently a special exhibition about Andy Warhol at the Moderna Museet i Stockholm. I found at the Museum´shop the most Bobo souvenir : The Andy Warhol pop box.
This box offers a unique peek at Andy Warhol's vibrant, chaotic life. Just like the endless boxes of "stuff" he himself collected, There is abit of everything in. Included are reproductions of invitations, letters from Elizabeth Taylor and Mick Jagger, photos, astrological charts, and other artifacts of his unconventional creative process. A color booklet outlines the meaning of each item. Also included are a ring-shaped Factory stamp, a Campbell's Soup button, and a complimentary pass to The Andy Warhol Museum.
You can used it also as your creative box!!!
I have for you at the Bobo Gallery, you the Bobo women, the best gift that you will offer to HIM but in reality is for you...
Collect (via HIM) the signed limited edition prints of Kavel Rafferty (ref the Bobo artists category)
Kavel said : Using a domestic setting to examine sexual stereotypes, exploring the idea that the ideal woman is a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. Mixing roles traditionally assigned to a wife or a mistress, doing her household chores in her underwear, ironing semi nude and cooking in little more than an apron.
The prints convey a frisson of the excitement associated with catching a forbidden moment, evoking the furtive pleasures of a peeping tom or 'What the Butler Saw'. The viewer feels drawn into a voyeuristic world in which they watch the intimate moments of the subjects unfold before them from a hidden vantage point.
His fantesy will be activated may be yours also and you will have several of these gorgeous prints: I had already 3!!!
Signed limited edition of 20. Heat transfer print on paper, mounted on to architectural tablets. The blocks are painted white and are 4cm deep. 20cm wide by 20cm height.
Live a unique, funny, bobo, simple experience participating to a Freeze.
The Freeze come from the Flashs mobs which had been already organized in different big cities in the world. The idea is that lots of people meet at the same place and freeze in their position at a exact same moment during 1 to 3 minutes .Of course, the scene is filmed and the result is very spectacular.The best thing is to look at the others persons and tourists stopped to notice what was happening around them.
It will be very fun to organize one in Stockholm and with the weather the word freeze is so appropriated!!! Someone told me that there had already one in central station in Stockholm...
Enjoy the video
After New-York,London, the last one was in Paris to the Trocadero...
In my ex post "Repetto", I talked about Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg who had been together and had sang Bonnie & Clyde (1968).
Listen to this mythical song and look at the video, so glamourous and so modern!
