DADA! English Introduction

Art inspires a sense of beauty and intrigues the spirit of the mind and Design benefits our everyday life and vice versa. So, what might we be seeking? The answer is LifeStyle!

Design x Art = LifeStyle = a formula of our Utopian world.

The beauty of life, the meaningful objects are all found in our surroundings, but what makes one’s life different and interesting? Sharing creativity and the touching memory is what truly influences us. DesignArtists transform our life experiences and construct illusions on different levels and platforms such as social activity, art, design, technology, music, research, literature, and many more. DesignArt is a comment, a way beyond words for people to appreciate and rethink how these reflect our life. While we are surrounded by an abundance of resources there are still many creative practitioners who have yet to be discovered by their commercial based roles. Therefore, DADA editorial team, has a mission to find and source out these talents and present them on our international blog.

We, the DADA editors consist of a group of people who live in different places and offer a glance into local visions and spread our thoughts and findings to our readers!

We looking forward to receiving your feedback. The DADA team hopes to improve our lives and make them even better!

Love & Peace! ;-)

Hi everyone.
Finally I have got round to writing!
It can be a difficult situation as many of you probably know, trying to balance art and life. And I know these two can be the same thing, but many times you realise that actually, in practice, this is not the case. Having a job (although at the moment I am unemployed and looking for work), having a social life, making your own art and volunteering for a gallery or writing for a blog such as this is a tricky balance, where it seems time management skills are essential; because if one of these above activities takes up more time than expected, it means it has deducted, even stolen, time from something else.

A little bit (‘wee bit’ as they would say in Scotland) about myself. My name is Nicol Dourala, I was born and raised in Greece. I did a BA(Hons) in Photography, in England, over ten years ago. I then went back to Greece. In 2008 I completed a Masters in Fine Art, in Scotland and I now live in London.

Scotland is also where I met Meigo, who has been ever so nice and offered me the opportunity to contribute to this blog, by reporting from London. And of course I would also like to thank the rest of the editorial group for agreeing to this. It is a bit weird writing for a blog which I do not understand/cannot read, as I only know Greek and English, so do bare with me, and put me back on track if I have steered away from it!
Thanks –x-
