About my artwork
each branch of my work hits on 3 central concepts. History - both personal and universal. Time - How information is preserved. Layers - how quantum events change us, M theory in this respect, and how these layers create the patterns we know in any given moment.
Artists I like
culture and concept producers like Yves Klein (and the noveau realitsts). Those who fuse art and pop culture, like Takashi Murakami and Fisherspooner. And phenomenon creators like Olafur Eliasson and Jeremiah Barber.
abstract painting, live electronic music, artist as shaman, asian art history, Chinese scroll painting, japanese pop art, german expressionists.

did you get my email. you can copy that to your proposal when you send it if you wish. also i noticed that they have very specific formats for images and what not, so check their website before you put your project together. I got into artropolis again so we can work together if you want to help out. until then...t

Thanks for the add.
Like most I’m here for networking and camaraderie, domestic and abroad.
Feel free to post any recommendations on facilities accepting exhibition proposals.
Peruse my website. My associate in Berlin and NYC (oder24.com) has very nice galleries and specializes in international artists.
