Interview with Olga Karika – Medieval Symbolism as the Freedom of Thoughts

"I find a lot of inspiration in the works by Old Masters, especially the European artists of the 16th and 17th Century. These works appear perfect for their time. Their value lies in their splendour and in a special mixture of symbols for the viewer. In order to emphasize and convey the idea of my paintings, I use symbols".

Art in Corona Lockdown - Interview with Ferhat Özgür, Zagreb

"During the period of the lockdown I was unable to work in my workshop on a daily basis, like I used to, even though it is only a fifteen-minute walk away from home. Yet this did not prove to be an obstacle for me to continue working on various ideas. Preserving my belief that the virus cannot be superior to creativity, I tried to enrich the freedom of loneliness by staging a ‘one-man performance’ at home in order to negotiate the absurdness and surreal contingencies of photography".
