Marko Zubak loves his life. He stays far away from interest groups and politics, choosing to rely on himself and his close circle of family and friends. “It’s not easy to be independent, especially as an artist in a country where an art market doesn’t exist and politics control the culture and create eligible artists.”

Carlos Marcial Torres was exposed to the arts at a very early age. His father was a painter and an art professor. His mother — an art historian, art critic, writer and university professor. He recalls himself as a child, exploring his father’s art studio and excitedly checking out the pretty pictures in his mother’s art history books.
His parents’ friends were also artists who practiced a variety of art disciplines, including literature, music, film, and theatre. …
Reinhard Schmid’s self-portrait is the ultimate picture worth a thousand words. He has a true love for riding his motorcycle and an interest in machines and engineering from his years as a submarine navigator. This all comes full center in his self-portrait as he dons a helmet, riding a mechanized bee with wings spanning beyond what we can see. It launches that feeling of freedom that only an open-air ride can give. The ride and rider humorously share the same grin of excitement reminding us that what we do and accomplish are extensions of who we are. The flower in…
I miss my friends.

Time spent with my friends was already at an all-time low. But now I yearn even more for connection as this feeling of dystopian doom washes over me. I can’t help but wonder if our health care system and my financial pockets will be able to handle the COVID-19 wrath.
Cartoons are what sparked the creative energy of the 9 year old boy, Marvin Mejias, who would later be known as Rare Designer. It began with drawing cartoons on television, then creating his own characters. Later he began illustrating pieces based on humor, and drawing caricatures of his classmates — highlighting prominent features such as drawing a carrot in place of a large nose. At school, he began charging for his time and talents as the demand for his artwork grew. Naturally, it progressed into a small business creating 100cm x 70cm conceptual maps. …
An artist takes us beyond causality
Two vanishing points on a horizontal line — this is what started Peter Gric’s 3D artistic journey at the young age of 7. It took just a couple minutes of his father’s guidance to learn to draw a building in perspective using two vanishing points on a horizon line. From there, he was off to the races spending weeks drawing perspectives of street scenes, and buildings of every form imaginable. Inevitably, he would discover the three vanishing points found in a cubic form. His father had triggered an obsession.
The feeling of freedom and…
