Mitja Ficko & Marko Jakše From Sky to Sky
30. 11. 2022–12. 2. 2023

What and whom is it that the creative energy is connected with, why and how does it arise? The ones who create do not even concern themselves with it, great volumes indeed have already been written about it and about the art springing from it, volumes were written about artists who carry it within and turn it without.

Samo
Solo – group exhibition
SamoU la la !
1. 7. 2021–28. 8. 2021
The basic tendency to create works of art is always individualistic. It is born out of a personal reaction, escalated into artistic action, from a subjective point of view. This subjective level encapsulates all emotions, ideas, rationality, goals and values. Such art, unencumbered from all modern trends, is created by the self-made artist Samo.
