    Hello Ben,

    My name is Olga. I am an artist from Russia.

    I saw your film “The great contemporary art bubble” and decided to write you. I agree with you. Contemporary art is a bubble, a blister which will burst soon. Real art must not be like a bubble. People forgot about real meaning of art. Art focus should be on the enduring fundamental principles of life that ennoble mankind. Art must elevate of Man, to make him better. When the great business meddles in art, art dies. The businessmen don’t hold an interest in new name in art. They interested in only their profit. And meanwhile hand of God doesn’t impoverish and it continues to give the talents to people.

    I want to tell you about one of these gifts which was given to the Russian artist. His name is Valentin Massov. I don’t think you’ll believe me. I just want to you save in memory his name. Why? Because his name will be known all over the world. Because Valentin Massov has created the new art movement – Spiritual Realism. And people will say about him, when they get tired of the great contemporary art bubble.

    I wrote more information by mail. (
