Walter Oucharek Art Works
"Art should have an effect on the observer, if it doesn’t, than it lacks purpose and has failed as good art".
"Art has always been an important part of my life. I believe that the world is all eye candy and can be brought to life through paintings and art work that all can enjoy".
"Art does not always have to have obvious meaning, nor does it always have to be beautiful to have value."
