Sharing about the little “a” artwork, TikTok, and artists


Nepo Babies

When we talk about artists who were Nepo Babies, including Artemesia Gentileschi, books we love, and art we’ve been excited by.

Male Gaze

When we talk about 80s artists who are overrated, debate if the female gaze exists and share contemporary art that really hits the spot.
