Critical Selection from Antwerp 2021

The increase in artists and works in the world, as well as the increase in organized events, reduces more work to criticism and critic focus. As an art critic, I have come under the scrutiny of Art Antwerp. I had a vision for print, work an paper, painting, sculpture and photography units. I will also write the criteria that show why things are successful at the bottom of each study. Here are the successful jobs in my opinion:
