Recently, I added to my collection a work of Izumi Kato and another one by Chen Ke from Christies auction. I look forward to receiving them!

TIPS

Your criteria of choice?

Choose the one you like and don’t think to use art as a tool to earn money. This is just an extra bonus.

Be concerned for quality, not quantity. Try to buy original artwork and have a masterpiece in the collection.
