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 High Renaissance artist, Raphael.
My vision is to increase accessibility to the arts through the preservation, digitisation, and sharing of museum collections.
This blog is my soundboard for my thoughts on some of the latest exhibitions in London, born halfway through my first year of undergraduate studies at the University of Kent in 2013, where I studied BA History & Philosophy of Art (2012-15). I went on to complete an MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2015-16 and graduated with academic awards.
I am a research assistant at Royal Museums Greenwich, and I also review books and exhibition catalogues for Museum Bookstore. My academic dissertations have discussed selfies and self-portraiture, and Raphael’s re-use practice throughout his 37-year lifetime.
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!
