John, you will know when my art should be view by the art world

In remembrance of a brother long dead and in peace, author John Thomas Vaina publishes the works of art that his late sibling Fred Vaina had completed in days of his prime. Sentimental yet inspiring, “Art Unseen II” anthologizes the creativity and artistry running through their veins.

The anthology of deceased Frederick Vaina’s works begins with a recapitulation of the life he had lived and how he was remembered the best by the author who is his junior. Fred’s inspirations are Francis Goya, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Peter Max. The outputs of his experimentations with artistic media are arranged chronologically, from the most recent to the very first. Copies of the intaglios in zinc and copper which wowed art dealers and master print makers are also contained in the book.

“John, you will know when my art should be view by the art world,” were the ideals of Fred that the author constantly plays in his mind. Though his artist brother was tragically killed in a car accident in 1977, Vaina hopes that through this book, this dream will come true.
