July In Pictures: Kopparberg Urban Forest, Pop Brixton, Serpentine Gallery, PT1

Hi Guys, I just wanted to give you a a rundown of my hot happenings in July. July was a fantastic month with so much going on in London. And as usual I had to endure and capture the scene.

I attended Kopparberg Urban Forest in Hackney Wick. Not just once but 3 times in total. The event was scandi at it's finest with a mixture of Swedish and London culture in one hub, with a blend of live music, street food vendors such as Mama's Jerk, Le Bun, Buffalo Joes, Hackney Pearl and refreshments from Kopparberg brewery including Frozen fruit cider pouches, which also went down a treat along with classic favs Naked Apple, Pear cider, strawberry and lime, mixed fruits and adventurous Nordic berry and Elderflower & Lime.

The first time I visited Kopparberg Urban Forest: Hiphop Karaoke were in the building, where members of the public had a chance to perform on the stage their favourite hiphop tracks. 

2nd Trevor Nelson took as way back with an infectious set of Rnb & Soul and on my 3rd visit Miss Dynamite was shunning the crowd with her lyrical vibes. She shutdown the stage. Yass!

I popped to Pop Brixton with my friend Yvonne The Passionate Baker and we went to check out the new site occupying station road; which is made with up cycled shipping containers. And headed in the direction of the most sought Zoe's Ghana Kitchen where we had some tasty Ghanaian food with a modern twist. 

Here's what I ordered: Jollof Rice, Suya with peanut sauce, Cinnamon kelewele and shared Okra Tempura. Those of you who are unaware of kelewele it is fried plantain seasoned with spices. 

I also headed to the Serpentine Gallery to view the latest installation by Spanish architects Selgascano. Which is amazing. Pictures don't give it justice. Being there in person it is so surreal. 

The structure I would describe as a beautiful luminous mess with iridescent and stained glass effect interiors. The installation is made of polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multi-coloured fluorine-based polymer (ETFE) woven through and wrapped like webbing. Each entrance has a different passing point with a secret corridor between the outer and inner layer of the structure.
