I came over from Cyprus and I felt like meeting the other world of phylosofy in all of its excisted.

As an artist I was fascinating by the work " this is not a pipe" and "the key of dreams" .

Many thanks for giving us this grade opportunity visit an artist's world who represented the beginning of a new unussual era in art history.
