We are together again!
The growing interest of various audiences to this project from fine art experts, curators, students of art oriented faculties, intellectuals, to unsophisticated spectators, is reflection of the fact that his potential is going far from the limits of local format and demands a reconsideration and extension of geography of public.
Already at this level it is evident that this project is unique, as it comprises the biggest collection of ballpoint pen artworks in the whole world – more than 1000 work of around 200 authors. And while talking about the numbers, that is also worth to bear in mind the high artistic quality of works.
So we are continuing our fascinating and interesting trip to the art with daily office paper and simple ball-point pen. This is such kind of exiting trip that is better to start together.
Join us and have a good trip!
