Da Matteo & Amalia Kenamets

The Da Matteo cafés are definitely the best ones in town. Coffee drinkers, including the husband, says that the coffee is exceptionally good here. The hot chocolate is tasty as well, speaking from own experience. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Yes this is a good place to go if you are up to a fika in Gothenburg.

The combination Da Matteo + Amalia Kenamets was a treat when we went to Sprängkullsgatan’s Da Matteo (there are three Da Matteo cafés in town) on Sunday. Amalia Kenamets is an artist who works with sculpture, painting and textiles. The exhibition is up until 30 Januari, 2014.

+ Worth a visit alone is the amazing theater chairs (?) upstairs.

Graphite 1 / Mona Johansson

I’ve stumbled on them a couple of times, lithographs by Swedish artist Mona Johansson (born 1924). Could not resist this one when I found it at flea a couple of months ago, portraying our neighborhood and all, you can even glimpse our house in it.

Here another one.

Speaking of graphite. This wallpaper, still going strong.

Sculpture: Torbjörn Vejvi

Above “Hatt folk” by Torbjörn Vejvi.

“Torbjörn Vejvi creates sculptures that explore subtle existential relationships between form and memory, introspection, and everyday life.”

Kind of want to play.
