I never consider myself as an artist, but as a creator of all things. Painting was introduced to me at very early age from my family and I never understood why I would need to paint people faces and still nature to express myself with acrylic paint and tempera. It was pointless to me to look at something and then translate this to paper or canvas. But then, I will never forget one Sunday when I was around 10 years old and I started to paint my neighbourhood where I was living back then. That was the moment when I found myself as a creator of all things in odd way. Place where I was raised shaped me as a person forever, so maybe this is why I always end up in life with palette knife and brush in my hand.
I’m a software developer, but, here I am, always painting what I am, what I feel and what I see as a human being on this Earth. There isn’t any fancy thought that I need to please people’s eyes, I’m just sharing my weaknesses, struggles, current state of mind. It’s never about memories or what makes me or others happy, it’s just pure and raw energy translated to canvas. Don’t get it wrong, sometimes is happiness too, it’s part of my human experience. World is part of my hu-man experience.
“Sharing is caring” once one said, and this is why I choose to participate in exhibition for the first time. How long I’m a painter? I don’t count those years anymore, it doesn’t matter.
P.S. I have a real name, I was always and will always be Crna Nina (transl. Black Nina)
