L. C.What is art for you?

M.B. – Art is very important part of my life and interest. Through art, which is visual language, I use to concentrate on different issues of life, community of our time, post-industrial architecture, aeroplanes engines, turbines, but portrait and landscape, too. Digital photography I use it in a creative way to express experience of contemporary reality. Photography keeps me engaged with images, and opens for reflection and understanding its unique potential and this is essential. Computational photography allows the visual image to create a picture of reality that is infinitely richer than a simple visual record, and with this comes the opportunity to incorporate deeper levels of knowledge. Hundred years ago the Cubists revolutionized was of seeing using approach to what they saw. Picasso, Braque and others deconstructed the world and resembled it not in terms of what they saw, but rather in terms of what they know using multiple perspective to depict a deeper understanding. Today we are moving in to a space more aligned with Cubism, than Modernism.
L. C.What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

M.B. – You have developed high profile, and I wish you all success in the future. Your dynamic work concentrated on promoting contemporary art is an ambitious mission which is so important for artists.
