Severe psychotic disorder in its correct medical term, or simply people who are completely…… Continue reading Simple Mind (2012)

The stroke of a brush on a blank canvas can become something significant in a second. It’s wonderful and natural. It’s art. I guess I’m floating with inspiration right now. Again, it’s because…… Continue reading Basquiat (1996)
