Tips for Buying Art as a Gift

I believe that a work of art makes a thoughtful and heartfelt present because of its uniqueness. It's all extremely personal, from the concept to the construction of the work to the selection of a particular piece. Going down on one's knees demonstrates that you care. A gift like this is sure to make the recipient feel extremely special. There are several ways of buying art online or straight from the artists themselves to make things even simpler.

A different explanation of perception. In "Tridimensional Guernica", a sculptural painting made in 2017 ( I call them SculPaintings) you can spend much time understanding what lives inside this artwork.

To reach the TTT(texture to touch) which is the point of my latest creation.  Enhancing the tactile feeling is part of my research while telling a story. In a painting as the "Guernica" of Pablo Picasso, there is very little information to add if not a 3rd dimension. It is a painting that said it all against the atrocity o
