Artist Collaboration are creative explorations that fuel mutual respect between two or more artists of any discipline, toward the creation of a powerful experience with a  common idea. Working on an artists collaboration is a great  learning experience…

Collaborative art can be a simple or complex;  Good examples of art collaboration can be seen in movies where films, theater and music come together in a great collaboration that it’s almost inseparable.  Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat controversial paintings other art collaboration examples.
