Van Gogh Art Gallery in Madrid

You will not get the exposure you think you will after paying Van Gogh Art Gallery. I signed my contract in October 2020 and paid the 1,000 Euros for the exhibition at the Art3F art show in Brussels in November 2020. Due to COVID, the Brussels show was postponed many times and actually only took place in November 2021. It is important that you know, once you have given Van Gogh the 1,000 euros, they will not refund your money if the show is cancelled or postponed. What they will do is keep stringing you along with promises of getting…

Zürcher Gallery

Gwenolee Zürcher calls herself an advocate for women artists but instead of supporting them she is charging them thousands of dollars to be in group shows to support her gallery space. Ladies, don’t do it. BEWARE!

Run away from them. This a big fraud; They charge you the annual fees, and then don’t comply with the promised services, they stop answering your emails. Then, they charge you again the following year even if you have canceled your subscription. Their website is empty : you can’t find cancellation policy, no Terms and Conditions. Phone number is not working. Many very bad experiences are posted by disappointed artists as comments to the pictures in the EAP Instagram. RUN AWAY

Dab Art Company has posted one of my photographs for sale for $600 without my knowledge or permission.

Dab Art Company has posted one of my photographs for sale for $600 without my knowledge or permission. To top that, they have stated on their website with my image that they can provide a Certificate of Authenticity for the work. Ha! This is a highly illegal operation. They obtained the work either by taking it off of Instagram or Facebook. This particular image is not on my website and has never been. Beware

I had one exhibition in Venice and it all looked nice. After that, they asked me if I would join another one for a discount price. I said yes, but later they charge me 50% more. After that, I decided to go and take a look, how this event looks like. And it was pitiful; I will not say, they put pictures nice and the place is beautiful. But there were just a few people at the exhibition and I guess there were even fewer visitors. I know it is not a great situation for art, but they could say…

Excellance art Gallery in Mirabella, Spain

I received an Instagram message from @excellanceartgallery from Guiseppe Carnevale. He then called me- I did ask him to- after he went to my website and saw my work. A very congenial fellow I must say- and he offered me a solo show in Spain with up to 20 paintings, one painting in a show in Paris, one painting in a show in Monte Carlo, and two paintings in a show in Porto Banos, Spain. Plus a single page in a prominent European Art Magazine. And the package price is 15,500 Euros….. I haven’t seen him or the gallery listed…

Dab Art now Cheating Artists in LA

Yessica Torres is now cheating artists in Los Angeles with her illegal business practices. She has no Gallery Downtown. Her business is online. She uses three different names (Yessinia, Yessica Russel Torres, Yessica Torres de Marin). She is vile, an alcoholic and uncaring for the artistic community. The Dab Art LA phone number is 213,260.0556 Dab Art claims Gallery Appointments are available, when they are not. It’s a shame such a vile person is associated with the artistic community. Our hearts go out to everyone here.
