A few minutes ago, I received a wonderful bit of news from fellow blogger, Roberto Alborghetti. A passionate artist, he’s achieved a milestone in his career based on his impressive torn poster inspired works. Back in December of 2011, I received my first ever blog award for The Versatile Blogger. In paying it forward I listed robertoalborghetti.wordpress.com as a nominee, with the words: “For artistic inspiration from Italia, robertoalborghetti is always as interesting read. Roberto’s torn poster art inspired silk scarves are going to be the next big fashion trend…”
A few months later – today – I was so happy to read that Roberto’s torn art inspired silk scarves are available for purchase to the public as part of a limited edition series. Personally, I think Roberto should set up a pop up shop for his works in Soho NYC, or even have them distributed in the Met Museum Shop. Congratulations on achieving this dream, my friend! I look forward to receiving more good news from you!
