Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: I am an avid supporter of the arts so followed links and searched and "almost" rejected this because of a lack of clear notability. I am declining in hopes that this can be incubated with future improvements that will include sources reflective of actual notability. A random look at references turned up two dead links. A showing in a foreign city, like the "Nuart Gallery": "Sale 10-30% Off", of an artist among others, just does not cross the threshold of a breakout notable international artist and I didn't see the subject on the list of one advertised exhibition as a headline, solo, or even among others. More information can be found at notability and specifically "b", "c", and "d" concerning WP:ARTIST. Otr500 (talk) 16:17, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
