These drawings are the visual phenomena that occurred while wandering through my psyche and the cosmos, realizing we are one. If you spare a little of your imagination as you watch these you will see many things that answer many questions. Please watch carefully.
Life for me appears to be very attractive & full of sentiments and emotions. I love to live closer. I want to touch them. I want to feel them. I want to share my experiences to others through my work. Through this I want to bring out the cool war going through human mind and soul. Man comes across different aspects of life in every interval of hours, sometimes he finds himself in high spirits touching the high skies. Sometimes he is cloud, sometimes he is a bird and what not more sometimes he is bound to various sentiments and relations & in the other movements he finds himself all alone. As nobody is here anywhere. Many type keep me cool to rather others one to harass which when every times comes in mind makes me panic. My endeavor is to put life into my prints by providing innovative expressions of sorrow, joy, anger and also in this complicated world emotions for life and penchant for good.
Bracchitta is a visionary artist. The objects of his imaginary are invested with ambiguous symbolic connotations. The slender stems of a plant; the deep, dark, mysterious recesses are hiding-places, scenes of temptation, of discoveries, of acceptance and fertilization, unknown territories of the memory… His colors are often reminiscent of autumn, a period of melancholy and reflection. But his approach is not one of consolation. The calligraphically seductive image is traversed by blades of blue and black, sharp lines, smears, indicating conflicts, tensions, tragedies, contradictions of our existence and our daily life.
In his large-sized linocut prints, Bert Brouwer uses everyday images, which are not intended as art, to relate the vulgar to the sublime. Brouwer manipulates his scenes, by drawing, cutting and shifting them about. When the composition meets his requirements he cuts his manipulations out in linoleum, and prints them on canvas. (A.G.)
Konstantin is a real person. He is a child and my son. I tried to see the world true the children eyes – world more beautiful, world in dreams, but world more danger. We must keep the children.

’The Political Economy of Human Happiness: How Voters’ Choices Determine the Quality of Life - Benjamin Radcliff
ScanMan In his work, Vuk Vučković is interested mostly in the human figure and its inner and outer space, showing a deep understanding of the interactive harmony of the two. He has tackled questions of the body and its identity in contemporary art. By exposing a theme that penetrates into the grey zones of society’s moral existence through the most intimate sexual and moral frustrations, Vučković almost ironically presents the complex condition of a human being with access to information and opportunities. Yet who remains closed and trapped in an idea of socially acceptable norms that are incapable of fulfilling the needs development of a modern, cultural and social identity.
