Luca Curci – When did you start practicing art and why?

Jelena Dejanovska – Art has always attracted me but the real start practicing art was when I started to create digital art.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?

J.D. – Linking the knowledge gained by studying a large number of different disciplines into one work of art is a challenge for me. Multidisciplinary and utilitarianism are the qualities that make a special work of art. My current inspiration is found in the esoteric world. In particular, I find interesting relation of man and space and energy in them.
