Joe Read (See-Through), an extra ordinary artist

Art has been around us everywhere since the dawn of history, and will always be. Art takes different forms and disguises, however, what has been common in art all over the years is its ability to provoke thought and express a mixture of feelings and emotions to its viewers or listeners. 

With the rise of the Internet Web, more and more people were given their golden chance to bring their art into life and put it somewhere where people can see it and assess it. While some of these people are good at making art, others like S.e.e.t.h.r.o.u.g.h are astonishing.
