He said he’s never seen anything like it...

I am so struck that, in some ways, I see myself in his art. Visually I feel that he is the closest ‘brother artist’ I...

On the other hand art can also be a cathartic process when we feel ‘stuck’ in life. It allows us to have insight into that which we could not access. Creativity is an extremely...
