art swap as a currency

Coming back from a local arts bazaar I remembered I began writing this post months ago and left it as a draft. Time to shake off the dust and publish it:
As a local street art fan I love to meet and network with fellow screenprinters, street artists, painters and designers. I admire their incredible talent and my hobby is to document their progress and sort of “scavenger hunt” their latest work, which is something I’d like to blog about one of these days.

I’ve had the chance to meet a few local artists and once in a while we’ll agree to exchange arts. This is something I encourage and support because art is an amazing currency. It will not enrich my pocket, but it will enrich my mind and motivation, and that’s something worth “paying” for.

I’ve been sort of “collecting” tiny bits of local art, meeting the artists and exchanging ideas. From time to time I’ll also document our art exchanges with photos. Other times I forget and will later curse at myself because I always feel the need to document everything! So I wanted to share some of the lovely things I’ve collected so far! An incomplete list, but awesome nonetheless!
