Why is important to acquire art at the time of the COVID-19?

There are many reasons why you would want to buy art. Art can be an investment, a message, a campaign, a decor, either way today more than ever buying art seems the way to go.

Not everybody can afford spending money on a piece of art! I get that, I do. Hey, I can't always afford my art!  but for those who can because they have discretionary funds, because they still have their job, because they have not spend as much during the Stay-at-Home order now is the time.

During the last months you spent a great amount of time inside you house.You probably realized you need to tweak your decor a bit. 

In the up coming months you won't be able or you won't want to spend as much on clothes or you won't eat out as much. You won't really be willing to travel as much. 

Your direct environement is becoming more and more important. Your house, more than ever needs to become YOUR home, a place of recomfort, a place that reflects your personality, a place where you can dream and "virtually travel". A sculpture, a painting could be the  solution, the support for your dream. 

Art galleries are still operating virtually but artists have opened up their studio. They are here to share their message, their dream, their struggle and create what we all share.

Artists for most have been painting a lot during their confinement and their creations is a testimony of our time. A time of fracture, rupture, change we all want to put behind us, but at the same time a time we want to build on, a time of reflection.

This year has been and will be a year of big change for everybody.  Where do we go from here?

To grow from this rupture we need to build on it and not forget. We need a gentle reminder of what went wrong, of what the world before was and see how we can adjust going forward . We need a time of reflection but a time of distraction to.

More than ever we need to pause. Have you ever spend minutes, hours looking at a painting? I have, and my thoughts are not always the same during that process. it is amazing how a painting can hep you escape.

Enjoy art!

SITE BROOKLYN: Identity and Expressions

PORTRAITS: Identity and Expressions at Site :Brooklyn Gallery , NY

Sometimes you just can't make it to the show where one of your paintings is featured. But the feedback was good and i got that picture.

This painting does not intend to represent a white, yellow, red or black child but rather a portrait of all races at once. This painting with the two words "Purple Child", meaning a child who abused a purple drug substance is titled INDIGO CHILD. An indigo child is a highly creative, free thinker, compassionate, intelligent strong willed child with a strong connection with nature. This painting is created to provoke a shift in people's mind and have them re-think their view and perspective. One must not be quick at judging and categorizing. Appearances are deceiving. People are rarely who they seem to be. Appearance does not matter as much. Color is not a criteria on which we decide who is who.
