Everything started right after my second solo exhibition, exactly one year ago. In that moment, I just wanted to introduce myself and my creative work to the crowd. Exhibition “We are not alone” was opened on Thursday January 14. I bought this awesome domain name on Saturday, coded a very simple WordPress theme during that afternoon and my adventure has begun in the morning January 17.
Die without art was such an amazing experience for me. I’ve met many cool peeps, made lovely friends and had a lot of fun in general. Hooray!
I’d like to pick out some of my favorite posts. So, let’s go back in time a little bit. Stephen Morris made us crazy with his amazing creativity. You must see his jumps and standing-on-head’s. Incredible sisters Mirna and Martina told us their life stories. I felt a big responsibility to bring their story, amazing, must read. During the Stockholm Fashion Week I’ve presented Balkan-inspired clothes by Lamija Suljević. Her main inspiration was the Balkan traditions. Feeling when art makes you younger is very familiar to my dear friend Marta Lamovšek, I simply couldn’t believe she is older than thirty.
I’m very proud of two amazing interviews I did during the first year of Die without art—with professional fashion and portrait photographer Lindsay Adler and lovely Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind. Three guest bloggers helped me while I was away. Sky Nash wrote about five books she loves, Giulia Scifoni showed us photography in the opposite direction and Yamille Marmont presented an exclusive preview of 500 Seconds Of No Breathing, her most personal work ever and a collection of 20 years of images. Thank you girls.
I was dreaming about my studio, my own huge creative space where I can work on visual art projects with my friends. I was official blogger at my favorite regional photography festival Rovinj Photodays. That was awesome!
Thank you all for reading this blog, this is 110th post here. Happy first birthday Die without art! Cheers people, love you.
