  1. These Spanish artists are truly the Best and have enriched the globe. I especially appreciate an artist who is not afraid to express himself through the beret.

    For me, the beret is my lifestyle, my passion and without it, i would be lost....a stranger in the crowd. Long live Spain, it's artists and beautiful people!
