Join the Big Picture

A blog that aims to spark thoughts and inspire by seeking out and sharing works of art

Historically, artists have always worked big, and nowadays those boundaries are being pushed to the limits.

Large-scale art, whether in the form of photos from the Hubble space telescope, sharks floating in tanks of formaldehyde, rooms full of dots, concrete sculptures cast from Victorian buildings or hand knitted blankets wrapped around trees, large-scale art is all around us. Join the Big Picture aims to spark thoughts and inspire by seeking out and sharing these works.

All content by Karla Thompson, an ex-pat Aussie living in East London. When not working on Join the Big Picture she is part of the backbone to the Leonhard Pfeifer brand.

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt

London 15.02.12 – 07.04.12

 

Living in London has its moments. It is busy, rude, grey, expensive, crowded and the public transport system is rubbish. But today, amongst the chaos of Liverpool Street I saw a couple of shiny eggs that made me stop.

Part of The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, these three eggs are part of a collection of over 200 uniquely crafted eggs, created by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers, and hidden across the capital.

I have found three, but after reading through the blurb on The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt site, will be heading out on a couple of egg hunting adventures with my daughter.

From little acorns, mighty oaks do grow by Loz Atkinson at Liverpool Street Station.

The Faberge Big Egg Hunt is a plan hatched by Elephant Family and Action for Children for a record-breaking egg hunt across Central London to raise money for these two egg-cellent causes!

Beautiful eggs! What a great fund-raising idea, and a little more culture and fun for Londoners (who are pretty spoilt anyway!) too.

Thanks Sacha, you are my first comment-person. We are going on another egg hunt on the weekend, weather pending... x
