"Very disappointing"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The artist has an obvious talent, but he takes no pride in his work. It is done quickly and shabbily, on a cheap canvas without any great effort. It arrived rolled the wrong side in (paint side up is the proper way) and totally crushed. It was packaged in a thin sheet of rolled corrugated board. The painting looks great in the picture, but it a real let down in real life. It was purchased for a project to represent contemporary international young artists, so I could not return it. This painting needed to be restored and restretched at a great additional cost. I am not happy with the purchase at all!
