Day 26 – 30 Day Self Portrait Challenge – Tor Tor Tor

Today’s Munich Artists 30 day Self Portrait theme is TOR.  We have only four days left in this year’s 30-day self-portrait challenge.  If you want to follow along for the last few days, please check out our challenge page.

Munich Artists Self Portrait Challenge Day Day 25 – Subways

Subway, Tube, Underground. Whatever you call it, we want you to think about the subway today as you create your self portrait. If you don’t live near a subway, you can go to a subway restaurant like Jeffrey Ely or take a ride in a car or taxi.  We have only five days left in our challenge. If you would like to play along, the themes are located here.

Day 13 and Munich Artists are into Music Big Time.

Day 13 and Munich Artists dug deep into their treasure troves and dusted off instruments, records and even some cassette tapes.  If you want to follow along with our 30 day photo self portrait challenge, you can find the list here. 

Today the weather is beautiful outside. If you want to take a little excursion, go GEMA’s office in Haidhausen and take a selfie with enormous instrumental sculptures in their courtyard outside.  I’ve never been inside so I don’t know if they have sculptures inside.   Directions are below our music photo gallery.

Gema where are you?  In Munich, GEMA’s instrumental sculptures are located here.  Rosenheimer Str. 11, 81667 München. It is behind the Gasteig heading into Haidhausen.  There are a few sculptures so go have fun snapping photos.

Day 11 and We are Looking for Chairs – My Chair and Me is the Theme.

We are heading towards the midpoint of our challenge and the pressure is on to finish.  Munich Artists are not breaking a sweat and sent in lots of photos today of themselves with chairs.  If you want to join in on the fun, follow the themes on our 30 day self portrait challenge page.   Look forward to hearing about your work on our Facebook page.

Day 9 String – Finding a Nicer Way to Say With String

Sunday morning and I need to do a self portrait with string. I decided to focus on my weakness. I’m not so good at telling people to *uck off so I played with string to see if I could make it more palatable.

I’m lucky to have a great selection of work this week from graffiti to jewellery created by artists in Munich. I spent the morning visiting Anne Trieba’s studio. Very talented woman and I look forward to seeing more of her work in the coming months.
