But outside of office hours, he dedicates his free time to create a series of small 30x30 centimeter canvas paintings. Suitable for home, office, shelf, or window sill, the collection of minimal art pieces, named ‘what have you seen, where have you been?,’ reflect the simple things in life.
Until Jun 19. Brasston.
