Art - The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in avisual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Art is what the eyes of each one like to enjoy. We do not intend to show trivialities but only share our experiences. What we like, is what we exhibit. Strange, Bizarre, Burlesque, Death, Night, Dark, Mythology, Myth and Folklore is what will be shown here. "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." -Albert Einstein
