Small Treasures Not to Be Missed at Expo Chicago 2015

International Art Fairs are known for their monstruous large spaces, large scale installations and visually mesmerizing works. For the new edition of Expo Chicago 2015, I decided to focus on the opposite. That is to say, small, quiet, intimate but yet excellent works. These small treasures were sometimes hidden in-between the “look-at-me” attention grabbing works or in a corner of the booth. I must say that I enjoyed my findings and I hope you do as well.  Click on image to enlarge and appreciate the detail.
