Léo Esquilat Bague


I’m Phoebe, originally from London, I’ve been living in Amsterdam for the past three years. I have always had a love of art and writing, and have been writing for small publications for a few years now. Although I write on a wide range of topics, art has always been my favourite to write about - especially about up and coming artists, and how art relates to wider culture. Abstract expressionism is probably my favourite type of art, but I will always take the opportunity. to explore a new style or artist.
