It was very well equipped, it had all necessary for silk-screen printing supplies and surprisingly for an art… Read More Printmaking studio at MANA Contemporary
“How did you find out about it?” they asked me. “We keep it a secret, there is even no website”. “My Irish artist friend told me about it” I replied. An art residency, located at the edge of the world – remote Ireland – is a big secret. I was lucky to be accepted. Out of… Read More That secret place at the edge of the world…
My plan was to find an accommodation for the duration of my stay in Amsterdam, as I was going to the Netherlands for a series of my exhibitions.

I often make small… Read More 67P: sketching

This was my first time of visiting an art symposium. I did not know what to expect, and I knew only that I am going to Slovakia for 10 days and all will be taken care of. http://multipointnitra.wix.com/multipoint When I arrived to Vienna, I and few other artists were picked up from the airport by a… Read More Multipoint Art Symposium, Slovakia, 2014
I know many people who think that being an artist is the easiest thing that can happen to you. They would consider you to be spoiled by life. What can I say, artists live their life the way most people don’t: – they don’t have a boss; – they have a free schedule; – they… Read More Being an Artist.
