The Artsy JournalistThe expected and the unexpected news from the London art scene
About meBeing the art geek that I am, moving to London proved to be the perfect opportunity to explore what the big city had to offer. Running from exhibition to exhibition whilest admiring and criticizing one artist after the other, this blog shares some of my thoughts and findings with whoever's out there with a little art in their heart. To tell the story short, I am a 20-year-old English Literature and Journalism student at Kingston University. Being originally Norwegian, I escaped to other shores a few years ago to try my luck and go on my life's adventure. Coming from a small town where art is non-existent (so to speak), London is my Mecca and fuels my everyday need with its cultural, vibrant and exciting art world. The only thing left to say is - The Artsy Journalist is ready to report.
