Art Blart

Art Blart is a mainly photography based art blog that around since November 2009. The blog was created as a form of cultural memory, to record the passing of so many photography exhibitions, to make comment on them and to archive the postings for future reference and research.

The blog posts excellent quality images from all the major galleries around the world and reviews exhibitions in Melbourne, Australia. The blog has a readership of between 3-4,000 people a day with over 3,500 Likes on Facebook.

There is an archive of all blog posts both international and Australian with lots of my own writing and research under BUNYAN (Writing).

Archive: Marcus Bunyan black and white archive: England, 1993
