CV - Resume


Today, I get 5-7 calls each week about exhibitions and various art projects. 
There are so many, and tend to continue to increase so I see no point in publishing all. 
The quality of the calls is rising all the time.

Art is a genuine catalyst. This means that art is always at present without being consumed itself.
That's probably why art has followed humanity since the dawn of time, and still do. It is probably also why Art is used as reference, and are closely interlinked with today's Luxury.
