illustrator and new york times blogger, christoph niemann has documented 72 hours at the venice art biennale
in a satirical-style sketchbook. chronicling the art, chaos and atmosphere of the city at its busiest,
the drawings represent the day-to-day adventures and opinions of an american in venice.
remarking on the long line ups, famous faces, and realities of both the food and the culture, the simple pencil
sketches capture a sense of pure humor and honest cynicism in what is said to be one of the world’s most romantic places.
