THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona Davis Lisboa, “La galerie légitime #5 (Paintings)", 2017, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 x 1.57 in (30 x 30 x 3,5 cm) What/who inspired the work? I was inspired by the Robert Filliou's artwork titled "La galerie légitime" (1964), a "commercial art gallery created in a brain of anyone, signed by a hat. What do you hope its viewers will feel/think? I hope viewers understand I am creating a collection of oil paitnings for The Davis Museum in Barcelona. This painting titled "La galerie légitime #5 (Paitintings) is a kind of joke of a joke. It is a kind of criticism about the "La galerie légitime" by Filliou. Why did you choose the medium? 
I chose the oil painting on canvas because it is a very sophisticated and durable technique. They can withstand in good condition for centuries. For this reason, I only use the best material: linen, Blockx essence of turpentine and linseed oil and Old Holland oil paintings. This is the only section of the museums in which the works are for sale. Support this project by buying now a painting in Saatchi Art!
