Die Ghul Show (178) with METAL-BENDER!:icondasghul:: Welcome BACK to my humble show, :iconmetal-bender:!
Do you enjoy RETURNING here?
:iconmetal-bender:: Thank you so much Ghoul! Well, I do so far!
:icondasghul:: Why are so many gallery items that were featured in your last GHUL SHOW, "in storage" nowadays?
:iconmetal-bender:: Well, a few years ago my gallery was slammed with a lot of art theft. I decided to put everything into storage and only put things back when they were at a much smaller size and had a watermark on them. I did have my signature and copyright symbol on all my work but that was ignored and many times just cut off. There were a lot of deviations and I didn't get to them all. Some of them really don't represent where I am right now, so they will probably stay in storage.
:icondasghul:: Yeah, I remember that theft thing...
That happened just within the same time when you had your first exhibitons, didn't it?
:iconmetal-bender:: Well, that's probably when the thefts were occurring (2012)
