V. C. – I’m sure that art is undergoing a worldwide renaissance and I would be glad to be part of this in Art history. Moving art and video as well as installations are new items in a viral world. It all goes very fast and there are many good artists in the world. It is not easy to be remarked and I thinks every social media and marketing is very important to survive as artist and make a living of his passion.
