Happy Monday!
.
In China and Japan peonies mean ‘king of flowers’. That’s why they are used to celebrate important event like Chinese New Year and other religious traditions 💫
.
They are also known to symbolise wealth as for a long time only Chinese emperors used peonies. In Japan they are used as a symbol of bravery, honor and good fortune 🤩
.
Nowadays, peonies symbolise prosperity, good luck, love and honour. To me they are these subtle and beautiful flowers I’ve tried to paint in water colours recently. They are such a true delight for the eyes... 💕
.
What’s your favourite flower? 🌺

Are you a fan of @banksy ? 🤓
.
“The Art of Banksy” is the world’s largest touring exhibition of the street artist’s work, and it’s in @coventgardenldn! 💕
.
I personally love the way this artist depicts the society with humour and sarcasm. It is such an interesting and complete collection it’s a must see for anyone who appreciates street art and graffiti! 😉🤗
.
Where do you like to see graffiti in London? 😎

Herds of life sized elephants can be found in London at the moment, and this one was spotted in the courtyard of @lagocciacoventgarden 🐘🐘 
.
This is part of the ongoing collaboration between two nonprofits, @coexistence.story and @elephantfamily, that raises awareness on « how humans can better live alongside animals and the larger ecosystem through imaginative public art projects » 💕
.
Have you come across these elephants? Would you buy one to support the cause?? (It’s just a matter of finance and space after all...🙈)
