    Cow Starting a FB galery

    Hi there :]

    I'm building a conceptual art galery on Facebook for few months now that I would like to share to you. It's called WHAT and, as the name depict it, it's all about absurd, innovative or freaky things.

    I spend few hours each week to pick pictures here and there on various websites, and I always try to get a continuity between the pictures I post. the name of the artist is always mentionned without caps, because I'm against the concept of the Artist.

    You can visit the galery here : http://www.facebook.com/whatpicturesland

    Feel free to make comments here or on Facebook and if you like, please like or share, it's good for my motivation

    See you !

    I think capitalized names have less to do with some artistic thing and more to do with... English.

    Really ?



    My turn to be obvious : with art typo you can make choices against the English rules.

    I just considered that avoid capitalized letters was something like an act to represent the common. Lot of pictures I show are made by unknown or almost unknown people, like those into street art or "internet art".

    It might also be an act towards not being taken seriously.

    It's the little "I want to be different" side of the gallery. I also could have uploaded the pictures one after one without saying anything to anybody, but It would not have been a very exciting experience.
