Artist Spotlight Series: Kurt Pio
I’m completely enamored with the work of my latest Artist Spotlight Series feature.
His work will be shown for the first time in United States in just a few weeks at Gallery Orange in New Orleans, Louisiana.
His work has captured my heart because it is naturally a girls best friend with either champagne or diamonds.
Enjoy getting to know the exceptionally talented
