Welcome to my blog!
My name is Nigel Ip.
I am a visual arts blogger with a passion for art history and curating. I also have an obsession with the Italian Renaissance artist, Raphael.
My vision is to increase accessibility to the arts through the preservation, digitisation, and sharing of museum collections.
Born halfway through my first year of undergraduate studies at the University of Kent in 2013, this blog is a soundboard for my thoughts and criticisms about some of the most exciting exhibitions in London. On the rare chance, I also review international exhibitions.
In 2016, I graduated with academic awards in MA History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art. My academic dissertations have discussed selfies and self-portraiture, and Raphael’s re-use practice throughout his 37-year lifetime.
I currently divide my time as an Editorial Intern for Print Quarterly and an Exhibitions Research Assistant at Royal Museums Greenwich. Occasionally, I review publications for Museum Bookstore and provide research for The Fusilier Museum London.
Welcome to the world of an art nerd!
You can follow me on Instagram too, where I actively post mini-reviews and nuggets of art history!
