The meeting of heARTS @ Ezo Bistro

Philip, Farah, James and Ina (L-R) with James's wonderful painting (Three Trees) in the middle.

Painted by one heart, bought by another ..... When Farrah popped into her local cafe at Barking station - Ezo Bistro - she can't help but fell in love with one of the paintings on display. After coming back to view it a few more times while enjoying her cup of latte, she decided to take the plunge and emailed us. The painting in question was by James Gray - a very popular & talented artist loved by many of Cafe Art supporters.

As many of you are aware, we are passionate for both artist and buyer to meet up when a sale occurs. This not only makes the transaction more meaningful, but it enables a share of stories and a human connection between two strangers whose life paths would never have met, if not for the share of one common theme - the love of art and of the human spirit. We're pleased to say that Farrah was one up on us as she already wanted to meet the artist before we even suggested this option to her.
