They are OK as a tongue in cheek joke present to someone who is desperate to have a Mona Lisa in the guest toilet.

Thats what called "Fine art" in Sinapore? :shock:
If you are looking for fine art, I know, a manufacturer of frames, his hobby is fine art, of which is very new, to Singapore and not really appreciated yet, very difficult to make a living. hence his move into framing.

There are a couple of legit galleries here, the MICA building has a few. The ones in the large malls are all legit paintings but overpriced, best bet is to stick with the big international auction houses. chirsties, bonhams, sothebys etc. for fine art.

oooo looks like my buy was not such a good one after all haha.. but i guess i was too lazy to go and get something done in china. Anyway i was staring at my pic din seem to be able to see any pixels on it either that or my eyes are getting old. Will definitely go to MICA to look for more. Hopfeully they are as cheap as what i got. :)
