What is the language in common for the young people today?

I support the diversity and variety of languages ​​and expressions.

What does the process of making one of your pieces look like?

Fast, like a rocket launch. The station was destroyed to launch a rocket. This way I get rid of the necessary excess.

Which challenges have you faced while making art as you know it?

The challenge is to look for new worlds in a familiar environment. I treat it as an unprinted book by mistake, an "empty space" that I fill at will.

Do you consider yourself an artist, and what does that word mean to you?

I am. The way of understanding and accepting. A job that doesn’t end with some specific and done hours.

What is your escape from reality? Do you even have a need to escape from something?

Escape is not feasible because reality is reality in every situation. I adapt it to travel and socializing.

What does the word innovative mean to you?

Knowing the accepted facts and be against or by accident step on genius.

Do you have a plan for the future? Where can your artistic practice take you?

My plan is usually focused on the creative domain and the research process. I like to exhibit my works, so that sets some guidelines for me.

What made the biggest influence on you to become what you are today and do what you do now?

Lots of drawing in early childhood. This is where I find the strength to work and the security for the performances.

How would you describe Serbian (Balkan or European-depends on where you live and work) contemporary cultural scene?

I would like to see all the potentials it has. If I were to choose whether to recognize someone's work or to surprise me, I would choose the latter. I hope there will be more of that.

In which way does your creative process shape you or changes you as a person, if it does at all?

I have a feeling that I have always been involved in creativity, and that in the period when I was not producing, I was in the collection process.
