Featured in new ebook Best of Activism in Art publication by Sarah S. Vati at MinaGrey Publishing

December 12th, 2013

Featured in new ebook Best of Activism in Art publication by Sarah S. Vati at MinaGrey Publishing

Jammer art has been featured in the new ebook BEST OF ACTIVISM IN ART II by Sarah S. Vati.
She does an in depth analysis of the artworks in the publication that are fascinating and thought-provoking.

"Jammer of First Star Art is one of our most powerful abstract, and even minimalist in a way, digital artists. The piece Afghanistan, for instance, reproduces the rocks of a rather unfertile and wounded land, and reduces them into geometry: the intricacy of gray and silver lines on a black background on the left is opposed by the golden flat lines on the right."
see this link for more....look on pages 19, 20 and 21.........at:

Congratulations to jammer!
Cheers to Sarah and Nicla!! You are appreciated!
