Luca Curci – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
Aleksandar Krzavac A significant part of my background is in my CV. I graduated from the faculty of economics, but for decades of my work, I have spent as a TV media journalist. I like lines, colors and words that’s why I spend a pretty good time writing and painting/drawing. I an enjoy individual approach to any work that’s why I prefer art to corporate work.

LC – What are your thoughts while you paint? Do you have any habits or rituals while you work?
AK – Thoughts… Hmm, not easy to answer… But New Changing World makes me react to such happenings. In my opinion no specific habits or rituals while I create artwork.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
AK – There are no specific timetable events for inspiration. The only way is to turn on my talent at the point I have a good idea. Unfortunately in the corporate office, I am forced to TURN OFF any art idea in order to perform ordinary duties.

LC – Do you use art to express something in particular? Is it your medium of expression?
AK – To some extent Yes for I think Art is a better medium to express a creative idea than Corporation with orders on how to work, walk look etcetera… Art is more my expression than my medium. It’s impossible to express such ideas in ordinary private & business life.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this exhibition? How did it inspire you?
AK – The concept of contemporary art styles is perfect. Exhibitions with the domination of portraits, nude figures and landscapes are old-fashioned. That’s something that we have seen 300 years ago. New Approach and Style is something that inspires me to make artwork.

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?
AK – That’s a good idea for the promotion both of well-known as well as emerging artists. Internet use is perfect for more efficient communications among artists, gallerists, media experts, and collectors… Social networks can make a significant contribution to artist promotion at almost no cost what’s good for emerging authors.
