At 15 years old, i experienced an event, that changed my life.
I visited the Philadelphia Art Museum.
As i stood in front of paintings from 1600's, i felt the soul of the artist speak to me as he captured all that was going on between the people on the canvas.
I returned many times and studied all those paintings from artists, who had been dead for 400 years and never had that experience again. I stirred a curiosity in me, that never went further, than viewing the paintings.
