A couple of years ago we came across a profile on Instagram which showed some two or three paintings which where done on canvas but completely in Mohamed Hamida's style, posted after a long line of other paintings in different styles. Obviously the owner of the account had found something new.

Yesterday we came across the same painter's profile again. All other previous paintings had left the place. The painter had been very busy lately. The account was full with masses of pictures of paintings in exactly that particular Mohamed Hamida style. The man had found his place in the art world.

To be truthful: We like his work and his ideas shown in the paintings. Mohamed Hamida feels honoured when other artists appreciate his style.

No, we don't tell you the name of the copycat.

When ? When will the ART SCENE get back to its wild, innocent, dashing, naughty pre-Covid vibrancy ? There is rarely any news in the Press about exhibitions and art events.

Is ART, painting art at least, that low on the priority list of the Press, Television and Internet outlets worldwide ? Or is just nothing coming up or taking place to report about.

The ART SCENE worldwide seems paralyzed in a strange way. The times when exhibitions were everywhere around and sometimes crowded with artlovers seem to be lightyears away, decades behind us, although it all changed only three years ago. Why is it so ?

Of course, it is not that attractive to visit an exhibition with a mask on nose and mouth and keeping distance from the rest of the visitors. ART pieces need to be discussed, admired and criticized.

Will we ever return to what we had before Covid ?

We at ArtInPoints, the artist Mohamed Hamida, tried to exhibit with virtual exhibitions on websites. But who is really interested in such exhibitions, not even we are interested.

ART obviously moved to the background in times when the Big Powers of the world clear up their issues. Anyway, we should stay optimistic. Our optimism is the only thing we have.

Our viewers might have noticed that this web page seems to be "sleeping". The reason for that is that we are having severe problems with our Internet connection here in Tunisia. We are managing the artists affairs via mobile phone and the hotspot. So please be patient until October when we will be back in Canada to see what is new. Thanks and good wishes for a pleasant and joyful summer.
