At first glance these pieces seem orderly and symmetrical, but if you spend some time with them you start…

Free Art – An Article by Paul Koester There is always someone (or a group of people) behind the content on any platform and it is always wrong to copy it and use it for commercial purposes or worse, claiming ownership, when it is clearly someone else’s work. It is unfortunate that artists still have to deal with copyright…
