Art studio database -Julian Wigley

  • Beta database: Check my catalogue of existing works 1968 to 2012. Note: The catalogue collection is in its raw state ready for further culling and curating. All is exposed, until I get around to sort. Let me know if there is a favourite or two because I have attachments to most of them. Also, if you are interested in the Creative catalog database, contact  Meccamedialight as they are trialling the service.
