    I'm Truly Passionate About Art!

    I've always been into it, but my serious interest started some 4 years ago when I was 13. I visited a local gallery of contemporary art and it was a total enlightenment for me. It was the first time I had seen a bigger show of 21st century artists (it featured mainly videos...

    60's Art

    I think the art history in the 60’s is quite interesting - like Andy Warhol. I also think there was a lot of art on the 60’s and 70’s record jackets as well as some of the fashion. Cheers!
