L.C. – What did you think about the whole Organization of the event, the artists’ selection, the communication management and opening nights? 

M.K. – The communication management seemed to me very professional and always showing personal attention. Unfortunately, I could not participate one of the opening nights, but I was regarding the events on facebook and I think it was a great happening and a memorable night.

L.C. – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca’ Zanardi/Venice Art House?
M.K. – The Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House are perfect locations for young and contemporary Art expositions. The charm of past time palaces in contrast with the modern art works is terrific.

L.C. –  Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?
M.K. –  I was showing two (self) portraits in different techniques ( pencil and acrylics ) showing myself being a poet. This is exactly linked to the theme of the expo like Inner Feelings, Dreaming of being another person, living another life, expressing oneself by another medium.

L.C. –  What are you currently working on?
M.K. – Besides the constant work on Portraits and Figures my main subjects are “The Set Table”, “The Wrong Planet,” Little Concert “,” The Winner “. And they will remain. These are the themes I am constantly working on. Static movement, timelessness, a throw in dormant waters, meditating in front of a screen, completing it behind closed eyes. It requires above all the empathy at the border of consciousness and subconscious. In a world of turbulence and aggression I try to give tranquility. Compositions of a single figure or a group of persons are mostly drawn without highliting details. Colors are used carefully. The spontaneous expression and beauty of pencil drawing is revealing the character of individuals. It is an unadorned view on men and women.

L.C. – What is art for you?
M.K. – Art is always with me and comforts me. Art makes me see the invisible. It inspires the pleasure in thinking, that the world was once different and that it could be otherwise. Form, material, beauty or ugliness doesn’t matter.

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.K. – Yes, of course, it is a great opportunity being part of international art expositions and achieving publicity. This was my first experience and I think it is a good chance. I am very proud of being part of it.
