ART COLLECTOR | SKETCH ARTIST

A NEW COLLECTOR WAS BORN

Many years ago, while living in Africa, I often passed by a small shop in the old town of Marrakech - which dealt in exotic antiquities.

 

One day, simply out of curiosity and without any intention to buy, I dropped in.

 

There was a small stand of little wooden and ivory statues, Japanese in origin. The dealer showed me one: it was a miniature geisha grooming a skeleton’s skull.

 

I stood speechless,

not realizing that in this moment a new collector was born.

THE STEPS OF THE COLLECTOR

At that point I failed to evaluate the play of destiny: as I have purchased the first object of my future Japanese collection in Africa. And only years after, when I have already left this continent, I have  let  myself be overwhelmed by the African Art in all its forms and variety, welcoming this art put a spell on me.

I have passed all the steps of the collector...

 

 

 

SKETCHING

Starting from curiosity and sketching, going through the recognition and acknowledgment of another cultures, to thoughtful and selective collecting of the masterpieces, getting into contact with various artists, collectors, dealers and all individuals interested in art,
