Coffee+Art=Saigon Creative's speaker of the day

Small talk before the presentation
A big thank you to all of you that could make it this morning. Coffee and art, that's an irresistible combination in my book. Cristina took us on a visual and intriguing journey, all in good taste and well explained references as we went from matchstick heads to portraits created in blood to taxidermy artworks. Disclaimer, the artists keeps at least three large fridges storing road kill that has been collected, often with the help of friends and family.

How can this not be an interesting morning. Enjoy the images and scroll down for the complete reading list kindly provided by Cristina Nualart.
