I have that special interest on works of art since I'm a frustrated artist myself. I wanted to take a course on Fine Arts or anything related to the arts but my mother disagreed saying there's not much money in the arts. Thus I ended up taking an engineering course, working as an IT professional for most of my life, and now writing for a living (if you consider blogging as writing).
I'm back to where I wanted to be. Writing and dabbling with artistic inclinations through my venture into blogging and social media. You have the eye of an artist when you have the capability to choose the right combination of colors, shapes, balance and other factors related to art.
Sadly enough, most artists are recognized when they are at the prime of their lives or after their death. During my youth, I think the only popular artists where the ones already in their grave. Their work only get attention, and value, because they couldn't create anymore new masterpieces. What remains are their last pieces of art.
It was therefore inspiring to have heard of Galleria Duemila proudly presenting a book launch highlighting Nelfa Querubin’s works. A Passion for Clay book launch held at the Ayala Museum last March 2, 2015 was sort of a tribute to the artist.
