Tate Modern is definitely one of our favourite galleries to visit when we are out and about. Always full of inspiring and thought provoking exhibitions it is a must see if you are visiting London. Next on our list is Jenny Holzer's exhibition which focuses on words.

Hope everyone had a lovely, snowy weekend!
Last week we were at the Tate Modern to see the amazing Amedeo Modigliani exhibition. Alongside his sculptures and portraits were his famous nudes and an incredible VR experience. We could have looked at his paintings all day long and it left us longing for the Paris 1910.
Make sure you when you go you try out the VR experience, it's really fascinating. You may have to queue but it's so worth it!
Modigliani is on at the Tate Modern until 2nd April.

This week make sure you go and see David Hockney's '82 Portraits and 1 Still Life' at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, which is on until 2nd October 2016.
It's a lovely exhibition full of great colour and mark making, which makes the personality of each sitter shine through. Such a clever, simple idea it's well worth a visit.

This week we recommend you go and see the Jeff Koons exhibition at The Newport Street Gallery. It's super fun and shiny!
Feel like a kid again surrounded by oversized objects and re-imaginings of childhood toys. It's great for colour, texture and inspiration.
Newport Street Gallery, is the new gallery from Damien Hirst. It's a beautiful space and we can't wait to visit again soon.
The exhibition is free and runs until October 16th 2016.
